Remembering Nuremberg

Nikos at Znet brings us an interesting analogy:

In previous Commentaries I mentioned that: “Of course it rests with me to prove that the comparison of the US to the Nazis is not an exaggeration.” Recent events deferred the analysis of this statement. Finally, here it is:

Let us start at the top: “The Fuehrer told me then that the simplest thing to do would be to take as example the United States of America, where the head of the state is at the same time also the head of the government. Thus following the example of the United States, we combined the position of the head of the state with the head of the government, and he called himself Fuehrer of the German people and Reich Chancellor of the German Reich.” (Robert E. Conot, “Justice at Nuremberg”, Harper & Row, New York, 1983, p. 333)

The words in the above quote were uttered by Hermann Goering during his testimony, on March 13, 1946, before the Nuremberg Tribunal.
