I stumbled on a quote not too long ago that scared me to no end. It could've been made in the last decade, but it was made in the 30's. Especially considering the source, this is too strange.

Of course the people don't want war. 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.

The source of this quote; Hermann Göering, Commander-in-Chief of Nazi Germany's Luftwaffe. Could've been made by any of Bush's lackeys since 9-11, if they were honest.
Scary stuff eh kids?
