    “Totalitarianism didn’t come quickly, it took 5 years from 1938 until 1943, to realize full dictatorship in Austria. Had it happened overnight, my countrymen would have fought to the last breath. Instead, we had creeping gradualism.”

    Cass Sunstein and ValJar get stiffies when they read this.

    “Totalitarianism didn’t come quickly, it took 5 years from 1938 until 1943, to realize full dictatorship in Austria. Had it happened overnight, my countrymen would have fought to the last breath. Instead, we had creeping gradualism. Now, our only weapons were broom handles. The whole idea sounds almost unbelievable that the state, little by little eroded our freedom.”

    Sounds familiar eh?

    @KF, just what I was thinking when I read that paragraph. Herr Obama is just about on schedule.

    Thank for posting this. Kitty Werthmann has been on my radar for years, and every thing she says is true, right down to where she frequently talks about the custom in Austria of married women not working outside the home, and how this was antithetical to the state sponsored ‘equal rights’ issue.

    It’s amazing that ten years ago, I was hearing criticism from other women who were receptive right up to that point and immediately rejected everything she was saying.

    Now (in the last few years) there have been more than a few weepy-feely type articles about how being a mom at home with children is the most important job a parent can do, with an explosion of news stories of the actions of people who come from dis-ordered homes. And a puzzling rise in the number of home-schooled children.

    Who.Knew.
