I put this in this forum because it contains personal experiences and perspectives, and I felt that was most appropriate here. If a mod feels that
it belongs in another forum, please feel free to move it.
Every day I see more and more events and attitudes that scare me immensely. Seeing these attitudes and viewpoints and how they are being defended
saddens me in a very profound way, and on a personal level.
My grandmother came to the United States with my mother in 1950. For the entirety of my life, and the greater part of my mother's adult life, my
grandmother has resided in a mental institution. At one time, over 25 years ago, before she needed to be heavily medicated, my grandmother related
stories and information about her personal history and experiences to my mother and I.
I finally get it.
I see the life that my grandmother lived, and understand the realizations she came to that shattered her ability to maintain a connection to reality.
I see the catalysts of her uncontrollable anger, and the building blocks that were rooted in self righteous beliefs and savior mentality that became
the bars of her mental prison. I have had more than 25 years to try and understand and now, finally, I do.
I understand her anger, her sadness and her shame. I finally see what fueled the ravings of a broken and angry woman, and it distresses me to see the
arrogance, ignorance and mentalities my grandmother warned me against manifesting before my very eyes.

The most effective weapon currently being used against us, and for the implementation of laws that limit our freedoms is a simple phrase:
"For the protection and sake of the children"
I have chosen to share some personal history, and insights. I am hoping that in doing so I will open the eyes of a few posters on how dangerous the
defense of their viewpoint really is, and although many may find the alternative viewpoints barbaric, I feel that it is important to bring to light
how these viewpoints and attitudes were exploited in the past, and used to defend actions that led to historical atrocities.
It is only recently that I have been able to piece together some of the things that my grandmother said to us, and begin to understand what it was
that shattered my grandmother's mind, and lead to her eventual mental breakdown. She made herself a prisoner of her own mind for the atrocities that
she committed defending a belief that led to the attempted extermination of others who held a different religious viewpoint, a different ethnic
background and for the sake of "Saving the Children".
It isn't a pretty story to say the least, and some of the details are not ones that are easily shared, and certainly nothing to be proud of. However,
as I see what is happening today in America, the attitudes, proliferation, acceptance and defense of these things in the name of "saving the
children" I feel compelled to relate these details in the hopes that people will open their eyes to the realization that we are indeed heading
towards repeating a very dark area of history if we continue to defend certain points of view.
My mother was born in Germany in what my grandmother described as a "concentration camp" where she was studying to be a doctor. My mother's father
is said to have been a young Nazi Officer in that "camp". From other details that my grandmother has been able to provide of the atrocities that she
witnessed, and apparently took part in, which I believe ultimately lead to her breakdown, the year of my mother's birth, and the area in which my
mother was born I was able to determine that there is a very high likelihood that my mother was in fact born in a
facility and that the general who's
wife assisted my grandmother in escaping that facility was this man
. (I apologize that the
links are from Wikipedia, but they are the only ones available to help bring the history of what happened in these places to light.)
My mother was born prior to the implementation of the Ausländerkinder-Pflegestätte sites which were formally established in 1943. It is my
understanding from my grandmother that these locations were originally established for the protection and safety of the women and children, and to
ensure that the women and children got "necessary" medical attention, and were specifically designed for foreign (read immigrant) children, but it
was not limited to them.
I mention this specifically because there are certain attitudes regarding them that are rising that were catalysts to the original basis formation of
the Ausländerkinder-Pflegestätte sites that I see happening today, specifically in this

We must compare our Patriot act to Article_48_(Weimar_Constitution)
allowed the President, under certain circumstances, to take emergency measures...
This power was understood to include the promulgation of "emergency decrees"
The text of the Article did not precisely define the kind of emergency that would justify its usage, and did not expressly give the President the
power to enact, issue or otherwise promulgate legislation. However, such an inherent Presidential legislative power is fairly to be implied

We need to compare what happened in Boston to The Reichstag fire

Because what happens next may very well be reminiscent of The Reichstag Fire Decree
It is therefore permissible to restrict the rights of personal freedom [habeas corpus], freedom of (opinion) expression, including the freedom of
the press, the freedom to organize and assemble, the privacy of postal, telegraphic and telephonic communications. Warrants for House searches, orders
for confiscations as well as restrictions on property, are also permissible beyond the legal limits otherwise prescribed.
