I watched this and took notes then made the following comment:
Thank you Dinesh!
Firstly I appreciate your distinction between what is/isn't "American" and what is "Democratic". I also appreciate how "intelligent people" get to "know" a "big lie" as if it is true.
Some other thoughts: "Lincoln" was not in the same camp as the "Founding Fathers" not if you consider Thomas Jefferson as a Founding Father. The Founding Fathers were not all in the same mindset in regards to the Federal Government.
Last but not least - a key "confession" in the Nuremberg Trial sheds a broader light on the history of fascism in the United States Government: “Stahmer cued Goring to explain where the idea had come from to combine the ceremonial head of state and the head of government in one person, Adolf Hitler. That was simple, Goring explained. They had taken their example from the similar dual roles of the president of the United States.”.
The "blueprint" for fascism began at the very start of the United States Government with George Washington who combined Head of State (President of the United States of America) with Head of Government (President of the United States). Washington was elected as the former but then took an oath of office as the later and thereby he combined two different offices in one person and the same combination gave Hitler all the legal power he needed to be the dictator.
“Goring even claimed that when Hitler subverted Germany’s republican constitution by amalgamating the offices of chancellor and president, he was merely emulating the powers of the office of President of the United States, which merged the roles of head of government and head of state.”
The root of fascism in the United States goes back 228 and a half years to April 30, 1789.
In a private email:
"The subject matter of "free speech" interests me and with the addition of your encouragement I then listened to Dinesh. I took some notes and then posted a comment there at YouTube. I copied that into my blog here:
That was easy enough. The research I had done previously (as a reference within my YouTube comment) was more extensive (over the course of a few weeks). I submitted my findings to Ed Rivera who appreciated it and that was gratifying.
How to turn key historical facts into common understanding for the people is the real challenge IMO. (Maybe I'm doing that now?) I just now remembered there was one other thing I wanted to include in my YouTube comment and whether or not I'll add this there at least I can share it here.
Dinesh talked about the resistance to 'debate' and also spoke in terms of 'conversation' interchangeably. I distinguish between these two. In any case what I didn't hear (and wished I did) was the need for dialogue. However he concluded his speech saying 'Be curious. Be open-minded' and actually these are elements in dialogue and not elements in debate. 'Conversation' can be all-inclusive. I much prefer asking for and advocating dialogue.
I've also blogged on dialogue. A certain professor has said: 'Dialogue is the new community. Without dialogue the door to pathology is left open.':
