We've Forgotten Who We Are - Bucks County Courier Times August 21, 2017

     One of Hitler’s most powerful tools was ownership of the media and using it for intimidation and dishonest propaganda.  So let’s at least accurately identify who the real Nazis are/were.
     Being honest and outspoken is not the enemy yet we continue to allow others to assault independent thought and free speech as if they were.  Critical thinking was the primary enemy of Nazis so it’s very safe to say that 1920’s Germany rages on. 
     And with all of the associated nonsense of various monuments I can say with total confidence, and as a Jew no less, that one way to ensure another Holocaust is to tear down Auschwitz.  Makes one wonder why all of these monuments are at risk and why history is constantly being rewritten.
     The main problem that we have here in America, as far as I can tell, is that we’ve completely forgotten who we are.  We’re in luck, though, since we can readily refer back to our founding document.  The Declaration of Independence, some would say, is the ultimate reflection of the diversity, equality and unity that defines us so it’s no surprise that The Constitution itself is constantly under attack by tyrants, dictators and anyone else who views everything through the distorted prism of politics.
     We are the recipients of American values and not their victim even though a small vocal minority is constantly trying to make us believe otherwise.  These strategies were what defined the political turmoil and unrest of the real Nazi Germany and it’s very sad to see so many here in America falling for the same (and for the same reasons).
     Fortunately, The Constitution is what stands between us and another Nazi Germany so it’s the duty of all of us to defend it in its entirety against all enemies. 
     I think we’re good if we’re willing to (through honesty, free speech and independent thought) accept the responsibility of American citizenship.  Right now I’m not so sure, but I still think it’s worth trying.   
     Maybe that’s the whole idea.
