Gleichschaltung: meaning “coordination”, “making the same”, “bringing into line”,
is a Nazi term for the process by which the Nazi regime successively established a system of totalitarian control over the individual, and tight coordination over all aspects of society and commerce.
One goal of this policy was to eliminate individualism by forcing everyone to adhere to a specific doctrine and way of thinking and to control as many aspects of life as possible using an invasive police force.
In Germany it was called 'right thinking,' in Russia it was 'having a party mind,' in the US it is being 'politically correct.' -- Comment by Artfldgr @ neo-neocon

Your Say

Time for me to dive into my unread copy of Wm. Shirer's 'The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich.'

More than half the voters approved of the Thief-as-Chief, AND 90% OF THOSE STILL DO APPROVE!

Are critical thinking and logic and historical society-sustaining ethics/morality ever going to be taught in our grade schools and upper schools?
Will the conflicting ingredients of our revolutionary soup ever be tasted by the hungry minds of our youth? How to understand the passion and learning of the Founders who produced the Declaration and Constitution?

Fortunately, in the 'ungovernable' American Republic, there are still many who aim to misbehave.
