Nobody else knows your reason for being. You do. Your bliss guides you to it. When you follow your bliss, when you follow your path to joy, your conversation is of joy, your feelings are of joy -- you're right on the path of that which you intended when you came forth into this physical body.~ Abraham Hicks

The fact that political ideologies are tangible realities is not a proof of their vitally necessary character. The bubonic plague was an extraordinarily powerful social reality, but no one would have regarded it as vitally necessary.

"Everything's not what seemed."-----For example, if someone were to ever directly question whether or not I'm dishonest, I'd just tell them the god's and jesus's honest truth about me: "That I'm truly not dishonest at all, nor ever have been."-----Hey, just telling the real truth about that is all. That's just it.

"I have always said that if Great Britain were defeated in war I hoped we should find a Hitler to lead us back to our rightful position among the nations." ....Winston Churchill (from a speech, Nov 11, 1938)
Indeed an interesting quote so much I looked into it.

"I have always said that if Great Britain were defeated in war I hoped we should find a Hitler to lead us back to our rightful position among the nations. I am sorry, however, that he has not been mellowed by the great success that has attended him. The whole world would rejoice to see the Hitler of peace and tolerance, and nothing would adorn his name in world history so much as acts of magnanimity and of mercy and of pity to the forlorn and friendless, to the weak and poor.... Let this great man search his own heart and conscience before he accuses anyone of being a warmonger."

Winston Churchill
7 November 1938

Keep in mind this was about 11 months before the Blitzkrieg of Poland.

What's striking is the flowery appeals to Hitler's ego to change his course.

That quote would be relentlessly torn apart in today's media.
