Firefighters struggle to put out a fire at the Reichstag Building, home of the German parliament in Berlin, on Monday February 27, 1933, four weeks after Adolf Hitler was sworn in as Chancellor of Germany
Not many months passed before the National Socialists possessed the allegiance of the army, police and their own violent paramilitaries. Gun confiscation soon followed, along with stepped up attacks on Jewish businesses and every suspected communist. The churches were poeticized and co-opted by the state, especially the youth groups, and the pastors and priests told what they could or could not preach. By August of 1934, Adolf Hitler and his Socialists had total control of Germany. The rest is history.

“Democratic” socialists in Europe and America today, think their experiment can weed out the violence and create a world-order without sin (their definition of sin) and thus achieve the impossible, without reference or recourse to the Law or Grace of God. Whether they get a single dictator in the end, a Hitler, Stalin, Mao, Pol Pot or Enver Hoxha, or, try to elect a million little dictators (themselves), failure is guaranteed, judgement from God certain.
