Book excerpts from Nazi Era to Enlighten today's Neoliberalism
The People As Enemy: The Leaders' Hidden Agenda in World War II, 2013, J Spritzler:
"There is the official view of World War II—the one we have all been taught—then, there is the one presented here: very different, and very disturbing. This alternative view argues that the aims of the national leaders were not democracy and self-determination, but were, as wars generally are, opportunities to suppress class rebellion. Furthermore, Spritzler maintains, the myths of World War II are the same myths that are being used today in the "war against terrorism" by government and corporate leaders to control people and pursue ends that have nothing to do with protecting us from terrorism."
They Thought They Were Free: The Germans, 1933-45, M. Mayer [excerpt]
“What happened here [Germany then] was the gradual habituation of the people, little by little, to being governed by surprise; to receiving decisions deliberated in secret; to believing that the situation was so complicated that the government had to act on information which the people could not understand, or so dangerous that, even if the people could not understand it, it could not be released because of national security. And their sense of identification with Hitler, their trust in him, made it easier to widen this gap and reassured those who would otherwise have worried about it.”--from Chapter 13, “But Then It Was Too Late”.

Behemoth: Structure and Practice of National Socialism, 1933-1944
"Neumann was one of the only early Frankfurt School thinkers to examine seriously the problem of political institutions.() the Nazi organization of society involved the collapse of traditional ideas of the state, of ideology, of law, and even of any underlying rationality."
War Against the Weak: Eugenics and America's Campaign to Create a Master Race, 2012, E Black:
"War Against the Weak is the gripping chronicle documenting how American corporate philanthropies launched a national campaign of ethnic cleansing in the United States, helped found and fund the Nazi eugenics of Hitler and Mengele — and then created the modern movement of "human genetics." Some 60,000 Americans were sterilized under laws in 27 states."
