I'm still not certain either way, but I agree...

that our government's meddling hasn't helped matters but made them worse.

I try to make it a habit to always put the shoe on the other foot and see if it makes a difference. It's one of the easiest ways to identify a personal bias. We all tend to have some that we are usually unaware of. Confronting them helps us to grow.

As well, I think talk of Hitler has also become taboo, but there is a lot to be learned by the lover of liberty by examining how he came into power. Personally, I've watched quite a bit of Nazi propaganda in order to make it easier to identify U.S. propaganda. The Prince by Machiavelli also helps to make nefarious intentions of "leaders" (more accurately - plunderers) more transparent.

I appreciate your response. I wonder how things may have turned out differently.
