    Those Crazy Germans
    Posted under politics (my fav. vice) by me on Thursday July 20 2006 @ 06:47AM PDT
    I used to argue that Fascism ala Germany or China's Cultural revolution, was something which could happen just about anywhere, given not so unlikely changes in the culture/political climate.

    Now, though, I think I may be coming around to the (nice and racist) idea that, in fact, Germans - like Walt Disney and Mayor Quimby's nephew - simply have the evil gene....

    2 quotes if you don't want to read the whole thing:

    "a court in the Westphalian county of Gütersloh sentenced a couple to imprisonent, six days for the mother followed by six days for the father, because the parents had refused to let their children attend a Christmas school play"

    "politician Ute Schäfer ... stated that the obligation to attend a government approved school follows from the “right of a child to free education and maturation.” "
