I would like to point out the obvious here and that this exact thing is playing out between Ukraine and Russia right at this very moment.

I’ve linked my source below. I am writing about how when two militaries collide, the aggressive force is more ruthless and they are less humane than the defensive force. There are a few reasons for this. Among them are the demonization and dehumanization of the people being conquered. What usually happens is that someone wants what they don’t have or wants to keep their power illegitimately. This was true of Hitler and he knew it. It’s currently true of the Republicans, who also know it.

During WWII, we and several other countries formed the Allied Forces. Germany, Japan, and those they conquered formed the Axis Forces. We know many of the atrocities the Axis powers committed, including the extermination of over 8 million Jewish people.

Did you know that out of the total number of deaths, the Allied civilians accounted for 50% of the total deaths, while the Axis civilians only amounted to 4% of the deaths? Before you ask, I looked and yes, this does include the deaths from both Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

Why am I drawing a line to parallel Germany and the Republicans? Because the far right has decided liberals and those we support are worthy of death.
