<"Germans who wish to use firearms should join the SS or the SA -- ordinary citizens don't need guns, as their having guns doesn't serve the State." --Heinrich Himmler>I can't think of any successful overthrow of one governmental system with another that did not involve disarming the people. Anyone who thinks themselves inherently safe from a governmental system (any governmental system) is guilty of self-delusion. The statement above by Himmler is the answer to Carijillo's question about why Nazi's are identified as fascists even though they called themselves "socialists". Fascism is a governmental system based on authoritarian rule by a dictator in which the people's will is subordinated to the goal of serving the State. Thus, Nazi's were fascists. TJ, I envy your incredible depth of knowledge of history. It is truly amazing. If you're not careful you are going to inspire me to pick up a history book. Any recommendations as to a good place to start?Michele
