Hannah Arendt Interviewed, October 28, 1964 (German TV; English Subtitles)
I'm currently listening to an audiobook of the third part of Hannah Arendt's excellent and terrifying Origins of Totalitarianism. I highly recommend you read it. When she talks about what happens with alienated physical masses in economic upheaval, and the underestimation of the conservative parties who think they can use fascists as a temporary, disposable tool to hold their own power, she's describing what has just happened. We've learned nothing. And I really hope I'm wrong.
"Eternity in the company of Beelzebub, and all of his hellish instruments of death, will be a picnic compared to five minutes with me & this pencil." --E. Blackadder, 1789 Questionable
