germany of the future

i was a kid just after the second world war was over. there were war comic books that kids brought to school. in the comics, germans were the enemy, with the japanese. they were brutal comics. no little bunnies here, just guys with horrible grimaces on their faces, guys shooting, guys being blown up. the germans were krauts, the japanese were japs. stories abounded about hitler, the devil of the world. no one in history (we were told) could ever have been as evil as he was.

how could the german people have allowed such a monster to rule? couldn't they get it? did they just sit back and watch? and send their sons out to maim and murder innocent people in other countries? it seemed impossible, yet we were told it was true.

all through school this pall of belief remained. later in adulthood, it was still there, in the marketplace, inthe gossip place, this fog of distrust around anyone admitting to be german.

in 1993 i went to germany with a friend. the german people had this cloud of shame big time. they were very friendly, very into new healing techniques, new love heals stuff. these were the grown children, many older (in their 40's or even older) who had been there, who had been little kids. they knew what others felt. many wanted to tell us that they hadn't known what was going on, that their parents were also in the dark, perhaps suspiscious, but afraid to act, afraid to speak, afraid.

the biggest evil guy of the world, hitler, was a monster. so much so that he is still, even now used as a symbol of evil on the lips of anyone who wants to make a point about darkness, about unbridled evil, EVILLLLL!!!

I made a new friend a few months ago. she is a german woman aged 65, still beautiful. she is a woman of gentle strength. she is thoughtful. she thinks things out for herself, and makes quiet choices to keep herself free in a world without safety nets. she was there in the world of the evilllll ruler. her mother , she explains, did not know what was going on at the time. the people, she said, were kept in the dark, while the mad man at the helm kept his course for world domination, straight as the crow flies, axe in hand, ready to chop down anyone who was in the way, or even just happened to be close enough.

guess who is the smut of the world now?  guess who people talk about all over the world now? who are the asleep masses who just accept what happens and can't do anything about the evil their demented masters mix up? who's children, as yet unborn, will carry the shame of this evil into the future? who will have to answer embarrassing questions long after their parents are dead?  what country will be the home of the homeless? where the infrastructure goes to hell while the evil masters take all money for the wars against humanity and nature?  the new third world, where hordes of homeless children roam the streets talking their own language.

but hey, wait! we didn't know! the truth was kept from us! we thought... we thought.................
