Punk & the Swastika: London Punk 1977
I always wonder what point it actually serves to compare things to Hitler & Nazi Germany. For myself, when i was younger & accepted the idea that America was no better morally than Nazi Germany, to philosophically work myself out of that hole & love my country, i had to accept Nazi Germany as well. Today, i accept that Nazi Germany is a taboo interest, even if it is a very common one. It is more taboo today than it was when i was a kid, & much more taboo than in the 50s & 60s. I'm trying to figure that one out as well, i've got some theories involving Communists, but i'll leave that for later.
