Tell me and I’ll forget. Show me and I may remember. Involve me and I’ll understand
Well we can't complain about this particular history lesson being forgettable as we are all involved with it right now .....
If you can find the speeches made by the president of the United States just before the march on the Capitol building and the one he made to 'ask for calm', it is a must watch.
I won't make comparisons between Hitler and Trump it is not the point. Others have already done it. The point, sorry my point, is that with a bipartisan system of government and with the current ethos/moral stance of the incumbents there is a massive risk of the divisions created within society to be severe enough to cause real confrontation/violence and a spiral that could result in armed and prolonged conflict.
The situation in the United States is terrifying. It will take a very long time for the problems created by this cretinous president to be resolved and for the wounds to heal.
This should be a wake up call for us in the UK. We all need another option to the current parties. The main parties have just too many little inner agendas which have nothing to do with the rest of us. The primary mover for them all is to attain and maintain control.
In Scotland, the situation is worse as there is no viable option to the current government.
A good government would avoid creating questions/situations whereby half of us are pitted against the other. But creating divisions keeps us dependent on them. It allows them their grounds for changes to who holds the power. They need the divisions to allow them their playground.
It is a massively counterproductive way of operating and is holding us back.
We need an alternative that is focused on uniting the people within the country and motivating those people for a better future for all of us.
