But after all, it’s the leaders of the country who determine the policy, and it’s always a simple matter to drag the people along whether it’s a democracy, a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. That is easy. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism, and exposing the country to greater danger.”

— Herman Goering at the Nuremberg trials

Yikes! and so true. I have felt that we were dragged into this kicking and screaming – whether that kicking and screaming was protest or fear – this is the question. Or rather still is. Thanks for the quote. I have actually thought – Isnt this how Nazi Germany got started?
