Is a waxen Hitler as dangerous as the real Hitler?
It seems some people are threatened enough by a false Hitler that they need to rip his waxen head from his flaxen body to protect the rest of us from our false witnesses.
Are we required to fear iconography as if it is the Real Thing in order to pretend to be good citizens?
Is a craven image of Hitler — created purely for profit — too dangerous to be accepted by a cogent nation?
When we give strength to imitation and posturing, we belittle the very core of us that should rightly be threatened by verifiable extinction of our human being.
The imperialist’s game is to preclude logic and disassemble loyalty for
private, personal enrichment, and the quickest way to get a large mass
of minds moving in the “right” direction is to create perpetual
bogeymen to scare us and keep our worst fears festering; and so we find
ourselves surviving, but never living, in a world we didn’t create, but
deserve, where an “at-large” Osama Bin Laden terrorizes us afar from
his kidney dialysis machine, and we are shamed into saluting lapel flag pins that merely wish to indicate morality and patriotism instead of teaching it, and we
become preoccupied with protecting each other from the melting, waxen,
face of the ultimate monster at the moment our very joy is being picked
from our pockets and the future well-being of our children is being bet
against the best of us and invested in bombs and munitions that crave
only one direction: Down.
