Always the weak links

The ambitious and evil always rely heavily upon the weak-minded and the easily swayed. From Paul Johnson’s “Modern Times”:

The notion that the student body is in some constitutional way a depository of humanitarian idealism will not survive a study of the Weimar period…. The Nazis did consistently better among the students than among the population as a whole and their electoral gains were always preceded by advances on the campus, students proving their best proselytizers. Students saw Nazism as a radical movement. They liked its egalitarianism. They liked its anti-Semitism too.
– Johnson, “Modern Times” p. 127

Their national socialism, our feminism. The methods and the results are always the same, masterful manipulation of the mindless leading inevitably to murder.
