As stories are popping at that Lula’s minister of justice knew about the coming attack and did nothing, and that this possible false flag is being used to justify putting more than 1500 protesters in concentration camps and to fire and even arrest heads of the military police and even judges in Brazil, I thought it would be fun to reflect on the 2019 riots in Chile. (Oh and police-man are being burned alive in Peru as violent protests continue cause the Marxist ex-president was impeached for attempting an anti-constitutional self-coup).
The Weimar republic ended with the machtergreifung by the Nazis. This has obviously led to Weimar democracy being bot much derided and debated. Where exactly did it go wrong. Ironically, the Nazis themselves hated Weimar democracy, but virtually everybody now seems to agree that their alternative was worse.
In a way the Weimar republic got off to a bad start. The Allied powers had forced the German government to kick out the Kaiser and then to except the Treaty of Versailles. They created a republican government which immediately had to discredit itself.
