What is the difference...

between this:

"This poster is from the 1930’s, and promotes the Nazi monthly Neues Volk (New People}, the organ of the party’s racial office. The text reads: “This genetically ill person will cost our people’s community 60,000 marks over his lifetime. Citizens, that is your money. Read Neues Volk, the monthly of the racial policy office of the NSDAP.”

Text and poster from here.

and this:

Almost a million people on sickness benefit for a decade.

According to figures published by the Department for Work and Pensions, 889,000 people have spent the last ten years on sickness benefits, costing an average of £4.2billion a year.

Today they do it with advanced technology... and pathetic red-topped newspapers, staffed by morons.

I don't believe the government has any plans for mass extermination of the disabled - except of course the existing policy of aborting babies that might have a disability, which has been in place for years and which everyone on the 'left' seems happy with.

I agree with your first point, Laban, I suppose we are expected to kill ourselves.

My post was to show that there is no difference between the propaganda tactics used then and now.
