In 1934 when I was 4 or perhaps 5 years old, I saw pictures published in The Brainerd Dispatch, of people killed in Shanghai, by the invading Japanese. I wondered then, why would people of one country do that to people of another?
Since that time I have found out that a combination of fear, greed, and lies can befuddle the minds of the average person to the point where they can do it out of patriotism.
Greed for wealth, power, and fame by a few can be sold to the masses, if the real facts can be kept hidden. Of course the seasoning of fear and patriotism must be used in copious portions.
The following are just a very few quote from Hitler's many statements, that explain the process:
-- "Through clever and constant application of propaganda people can be made to see paradise as hell, and also the other way around, to consider the most wretched sort of life as paradise."
-- "What good fortune for those in power that the people do not think."
-- "It also gives us a very special secret pleasure to see how unaware the people around us are of what is really happening to them."
But I still wonder, how those who claim to be on the side of morality and God, can let greed so distort them. But then perhaps their claims come after they become so distorted.

What is a minority?
WCCO TV is currently running a help wanted ad. They are advertising for minorities and women. This is an equal opportunity station?
Now you may ask just what is a minority? I did some checking with the help of the 2000 census report and came up with these statistics . There are approximately. 281.4 million people in the U.S. Of these about 36.4 million or 12.9 percent are black, 2.476 million or .9 percent are Indian, 10.243 million or 3.6 percent are Asian, .4 million or .3 percent are Hawaiian, 35.306 million or 12.5 are Hispanic
This makes a total of 84.819 million or 30.3 percent of our population leaving 196.6 million.
Take away another 26 percent of the 196.6 million for those who are under 18 years of age and it leaves 145.5 million. Another 10 percent or approximately 14.5 million for the ones who are (and forgive me for lumping people together that have nothing to do with each other ) either homosexual, on welfare or handicapped in one way or another and you have 131 million and 51 percent of these are women leaving 64.9 million unaccounted for. All of the above citizens are, according to out Government, listed as "Minorities".
The rest is that much-feared majority that everyone must be protected from. And who are these folks you might wonder? By the process of elimination we now know. The Majority is --self-supporting heterosexual, over 18 year old, Caucasian males. All 23 per cent of us.
If you think that this is without reason just put yourself in the place of our elected officials who want to be re-elected. What better way then to break up a population into small segments and tell each segment that without their help the "majority" will take advantage of them. Thank you.
