The 100 days and History

The book above is a great read if you have not read it yet do so, tells an interesting story about the fall of Nazi Germany

what I found most interesting is how others around Hitler knew the war was lost others continued to believe that everything was going to be great and that the Germans were going to win somehow.

Sadly if you said anything that might suggest that the war was lost or had any ANY part of you that did not believe 100% in Hitler you could as was the case for many killed.

Today’s post started after talking to a Reporter outside of Racine and a Racine elected official who asked the same question “Why do I care about keeping track  of the Fall of Racine as it was put.

Easy the History needs to be know what happened who do I think it was and what did they do or not do to lead Racine to ruins.

and as History goes

“The most effective way to destroy people is to deny and obliterate their own understanding of their history.”
George Orwell

“Study the past if you would define the future.”
Confucius

 

“That men do not learn very much from the lessons of history is the most important of all the lessons that history has to teach.”
Aldous Huxley, Collected Essays

“The farther backward you can look, the farther forward you are likely to see.”
Winston Churchill

See at some point in time someone may want to know why what was a great City (Racine) in 1910 by 1990 had major issues and by say 2025 like other cities had to declare Bankruptcy.

Why did folks start to leave Racine in large numbers,why did elected leaders still spend millions on a small area of Racine (Downtown) and leave much of the rest fall apart.

I know Documents from the ongoing RICO case will help but so will blogs like this one and others

In the mean time nothing to worry about in Racine the streets are Gold!
