Dear Daniel:

Thank you for your Article. "Today's political madness, in other words, is directly linked to yesterday's" This is so true. The foundation of this problem lies directly related to the division of Labor and Wealth Generating Organisation (Labor Theory of Value).

Fascism is an authoritarian political ideology (generally tied to a mass movement) that considers individual and other societal interests inferior to the needs of the state, and seeks to forge a type of national unity, usually based on ethnic, religious, cultural, or racial attributes. Fascism has been defunct in the Western world as a major political ideology since the defeat of the Axis powers in World War II.1 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Facism Definition) Furthermore, Italian Fascism had been in place some 10 years before the Nazi 'seizure' of power in Germany. German Nazism, then, and the industrial backers of the Nazi Party could look at Italy as an example as to how to deal with the 'labor question'.2 www.rcci.net/globalizacion/2001/fg206.htm The SHOAH!

"Labor Market and Penal Sanction: Thoughts on the Sociology of Criminal Justice", published by the Frankfurt Institute of Social Research in 1933. This article, which was originally a research proposal, laid the foundation for his book Punishment and Social Structure, which was co-authored with Otto Kirchheimer and published in 1939 (Platt &Takagi, 1980). This allowed the ruling class to fill the gap in labor at extremely low cost. 3 http://www.criminology.fsu.edu/crimtheory/rusche.htm From historical documents first published in the 1940's and 50's the SHOAH began as a simple German crime fight of Nationalism and the Laws of Nurenberg measures depriving Jews of rights. This included many others deemed undesirable!!!!! More than the Jewish Peoples. (NG) We do not want to forget this exploitation!!!!!!

Thank you and Good Day.
