    Idk. It's a conspiracy theory book, but it's immaculately sourced. It shaped how I look at things, but I still don't know what to make of it all. Your post made me think about it because the Lusitania was the catalyst, and there's some interesting circumstantial in the Jekyll Island book that I can't ignore. JP Morgan influence I think it was to publish an advertisement warning about not going aboard as well as funding for the munitions shipment aboard the Lusitania. It gets the cogs turning, but make of it what you will.

    Wasn't sure where to put this, but here seems about right.

    I visited the dachau concentration camp yesterday. It is just outside Munich and was the first Nazi concentration camp.... Everything else that followed was modeled in some way on dachau

    It was pretty interesting how it started as a place for political prisoners and gradually began to accommodate undesirables of varying descriptions before becoming the horror that it ended up.
