Back in the fall of 1945, it would be interesting, surprising and/ or stomach wrenching to learn the following truisms seventy-two years later. Many would not believe you if you told them the following:
The leader of the free world would be Germany, while America’s leader would have fascist tendencies and the support of neo-Nazis and white supremacists.
Members of the campaign for the same pseudo-fascist leader are being investigated for working with the Russians to get their man elected and don’t think they did anything wrong even if guilty.
This same man would question the reason and veracity of NATO formed out of the the alliances to end WWII and prevent it from ever happening again.
Scientists, main stream media, freedom of the press and the truth would all be under attack by this pseudo-fascist leader. Never before would a leader be so-often questioned about his morals, ethics or truthfulness.
One of the least trusted leaders in the world would be the President of the United States. This lack of trust comes from within his own political party and other global leaders.
The American soldiers would not believe you. This is not what we fought for they might add. Now, many great things have happened with Civil Rights, Voting Rights, LGBT rights, the first African-American President, space travel, environment protections, Internet, etc., but we are throwing some of that way with this President doing the chucking. And, that is unfortunate and sad.
