"Who Goes Nazi?"

Interesting article from 1941 that has received attention recently on big blogs I read. I really like this. She hits the nail on the head. Nazi is a term thrown out often as the ultimate example of evil with little knowledge of what they truly were or did to their own people as well as foreigners. Usually, it means you don't have anything else to support your argument and appeal to people's base hatred of the evil Nazis (you lost your argument). Many Germans became Nazis and many Germans buried their past after the war because they were not party members. Despite the slow death of that generation, the truth endures that many of the people next door or at dinner parties in Hamburg, Munich and Dresden picked up banners and rifles for the Nazis.
