Is it my imagination or is there an unmistakable interchangeability about the propagandized faces of evil? Spin Doctors definitely prefer facial hair on our villains. These guys are right out of Central Casting aren't they? You can just add features to the faces, like kids do with Mr Potato Head.
Don't ever forget that these men were(are) supported by millions of people at one time or another. Many of these supporters acted out of fear and at gunpoint, some of their own volition.
What does this say about our perceived free will? Are our lives entirely dictated by our geography and the reigning zeitgeist of day? Is our fate sealed by Time and Chance?
"The evil of the world is made possible by nothing but the sanction you give it." Ayn Rand
