The standard of living and quality of life in Hitler’s Third Reich was far superior to elsewhere in the developed world.
Where mass demonstrations failed and insurrection was found wanting many a regime was brought crashing to the ground by ridicule. The royal houses of Britain could shrug off criticism by the bucketful but what the ruling elite fear most is ridicule.
October 30 is a day when Russians recall those who fell victim to political repressions in the Bolshevik period of the USSR. The repressions, triggered off by the 1917 October Wall Street-sponsored regime change, were directed against the nobility, the well-to-do peasants, and other social groups.

Contrary to the propaganda of the victors of World War II the National Socialist German Workers Party in January 1933 was democratically elected to govern Germany. Within the month, the Party’s leader Adolf Hitler publicly vowed to the German people that within four years he would give the German electorate the opportunity to decide if they wished the NSDAP to continue to govern Germany or wished instead to return to the electoral system of the Weimar Republic.
Every time one turns to mainstream media one cringes at the incessant lies being told about Russia’s so-called preparations for an invasion of Ukraine. Not a single story is corroborated. The sole aim of media is to beat the drums of war for American interests.
