The social democrats were the polite cheerleader/enablers of the meat eaters(Nazis and commies)who showed up later, brushed the social democrats aside, and conducted their local turf war.
The social democrats helped unfetter their state; the nazis and commies were the inevitable result, the terminus of all that philosophical beach softening.
Our version of the social democrats are cheering on the unfettering of the state. Our version of economic stress is bringing on the begging for the same boots.
So actually, we're our version of Germany in the 20s. Our flavors of The National Party come in red and blue; brown is not available this time around. Yet.
Like, Americans on average are smarter, more enlightened, and better educated than Germans were in 20s Germany; on what evidence would be believe that? We're a nation largely of mindless consumers, driven to a frenzy of social alignment and conformity in thought, with even GOP candidates begging "No, let ME run the economy!"
We've already long accepted our version of soft-fascism, the cozy blending of the government with commerce, and just as there was no major party of individual freedom and liberty in 20's Germany to be found, so is the case today in America.
20's Germany was a precursor, an enabler of meat eating totalitarianism to come, the tribe run totally amok; America today is well on its way.
