The similarities are terrifying, the conclusion inevitable. On March 23, 1933, the German
Parliment met to consider
passing a bill that Adolf Hitler had created called the Enabling Act. It
was officially called the 'Law for Removing the Distress of the People
and the Reich.' Why were the
German people in such
distress? Because their government was in utter chaos, and the German
leaders wanted to reassure
the people that everything would be ok.
The only fly in the ointment
was that the Nazis had,
behind the scenes, caused the distress themselves by creating the
crisis, so that they could step in and solve it. Sound familiar?
