The use of propaganda and the willingness to re-shape history is hardly unique to the conflict brewing in eastern Ukraine.
In fact, the modern art of propaganda reached new heights, or depths, back in the 1930s by Adolf Hitler and the Nazis, when they declared war on modern art itself.
An extraordinary exhibit at the Neue Galerie in New York is drawing huge crowds to see the kind of artwork the Nazis admired – hanging side by side with the kind they despised, what they called "degenerate art."
Acclaimed historian Simon Schama, author most recently of "The Story of the Jews," took CNN’s Christiane Amanpour on a tour, and offered a chilling reminder: First they came for the art, and then for everyone else.

Plus, with rare footage, Amanpour takes a look at back the 1937 Nazi exhibition of 'degenerate' art:
Historically incorrect: first they came after people, much later after art (books burning was directed against people and IDEAS, not against art ...).

Hitler and Manson are examples of people that got their charisma and presence from living without the conscious mind much of the time. It gave them their power, but without the conscious mind to keep the instinctual mind in check, you have a very charismatic super-predator. Hitler was more organized, Manson was more spontaneous, but they were on the same level. They got past fear, but not aggression. They were charismatic, fearless and aggressive, and we all know the result of that state of mind. – from The Present, a free book at http://www.truthcontest.com
What do you think about this? Agree or disagree?
We have come to expect this level of pusillanimity from the sayanim at CNN. Try the truth of the Weimar Republic "art" for once, see http://vimeo.com/91230371
Sounds like more propaganda from these people.
