History repeats itself based on fear

"History doesn't repeat itself, but it rhymes."
- Mark Twain

The old saying is that those who do not know history are destined to repeat it. Others say this is incorrect, that history never repeates itself exactly.

Twain takes the middle ground. History doesn't repeat itself exactly, but it follows similar patterns ("it rhymes").

Mostly those patterns involve war, aggression, oppression and some form of totalitarian regime. That is, those who know their history can see signs that one of these is coming.

A telltale sign of an oncoming totalitarian regime is the spread of fear amongst a people. Note the level of fear that has been promoted by the White House among American citizens. The level of terror alert is broadcast daily.

Terror, mind you, despite the fact that there has only been one attack against people on American soil since Pearl Harbor, in 1941. The current US administration wants Americans to be afraid.

People who are afraid will agree to limit their freedoms without a fuss, in the name of protecting themselves. The freedom that the US administration constantly tells its people that it fights for, it takes away from them silently.

There is no need for fear. Fearful people do not think rationally. They are easily manipulated by leaders who have agendas that are not in line with the values and best interests of their people. That's why they use fear, because they can't seize power any other way.

It worked for Hitler. You do the arithmetic.
