'Don't Be a Sucker' - 1943 Army training film

How the Germans forged a totalitarian country through the systematic elimination of truth.

As they said in my father's era, "Don't Be a Sucker." If you stand still while one group is singled out for abuse on some phony pretext, look out -- eventually the abusers will get around to your group, on a different but every bit as bogus pretext.



Parting thought: The word sucker traces back to the 14th century, where it referred to a mammal prior to weaning -- in other words, a BABY. Image
