Lidofsky: A teacher compares George to Adolf
Mar 05, 2006 09:26 AM
1. The example is "Hitler's Second Book: The Unpublished Sequel to
Mein Kampf by Adolf Hitler" available at Amazon.com, first published
in English in 2003. The manuscript was tied up in legal and
academic research for decades. The most recent example of America's
dealings with Native Americans is the Eloise Cobell case against the
U.S. that has been in federal court for several years. You can
Google "Cobell vs" to find it. The Cobell case represents long-
standing federal policy in dealing with Indians, that is now being
staunchly questioned in the courts. In 2002, a federal judge held
employees of the Department of the Interior in contempt of court for
repeatedly refusing to account for their handling of Indians in
cases as recent as 1990.
The behavior questioned in the Cobell case is mild compared to early
instances of genocide under the guidance of Andrew Jackson. You
didn't ask me about what Andrew Jackson did, but you could start
with Supreme Court rulings in the early 19th century which declared
the land grab that Jackson orchestrated illegal. Jackson had the
army and conducted blatant genocide to accomplish his desires,
knowing full well the illegality of his actions. Things got worse
for Indians from that time.
2. Of course I looked to find Theosophical work in the Civil Rights
Movement. I didn't have to look far to find Gandhi's involvement in
India's independence and Nehru's assistance to Tibet.
