[To understand the context of this post, please read At What Cost! Why Compute Economic Costs of Faulty Political Decisions]
Our Honorable Prime Minister Imran Khan in the recent joint session of Parliament on Kashmir’s annexation by India, reminded the MNAs and Senators about Hitler’s fascism and Nazi Party. He explained fascist governments are those that “drive opposition to the wall’. IK reminder comes as Déjà vu in the situation we confront. Thank you IK for reminding Pakistanis about Nazi Party’s Germany: Hitler-Modi’s Fascism: 1)Imprison all opposition, 2)Total censorship, 3) Dreaded SS & Gestapo agencies, 4) Forced disappearances:

Hitler’s government was Fascist, government of Nazi party. It had totally throttled media, muzzled dissent through dreaded Gestapo and SS of Heinrich Himmler Hermann Goering. Gobbelz was the propoganda minister of Nazi Germany who turned propoganda into science through which a lie is spread so much that people eventually start believing it as truth. Nazi propoganda manifesto was
“Make the lie big, keep it simple, keep saying it and eventually they will believe it”.

The instrument of coercion in Nazi Germany was their dreaded intelligence agency, Gestapo. [Wikipedia]
It became the” holy cow” which could not be challenged or questioned. The basic Gestapo law passed by the government in 1936 gave the Gestapo carte blanche to operate without judicial review—in effect, putting it above the law.[26] The Gestapo was specifically exempted from responsibility to administrative courts, where citizens normally could sue the state to conform to laws.

The power of the Gestapo included the use of what was called, Schutzhaft—”protective custody”, a euphemism for the power to imprison people without judicial proceedings.[34] An oddity of the system was that the prisoner had to sign his own Schutzhaftbefehl, an order declaring that the person had requested imprisonment—presumably out of fear of personal harm. In addition, thousands of political prisoners throughout Germany—and from 1941, throughout the occupied territories under the Night and Fog Decree—simply disappeared while in Gestapo custody.[35]

In 5 years from 1934-39, Nazis have brainwashed the Germans to die in millions to prop the Nazi regime during the Second World War . Over 150million Germans died!
