This Is How They Buy You

You simply must read this poignant eyewitness to Hitler's ascent to power.

No, it's not astounding or erudite or pithy, it's mostly just matter-of-fact, as an eyewitness account must be, else it becomes journalism and by modern definition, specious.

This is how they buy you:

Little by little,
Line upon line,
Precept upon precept.

And yet we continue with our stimulus-response-repeat cycle as we tilt at politicians and media windmills instead of building a better future. One person at a time.
