To say that for destruction ice
Is also great

Well, I got to like the 3rd-to-last chapter, hid it from my mom, she found it and made me stop, but I peeked at the last chapter to see how it ended. And then I went to go read Catching Fire!

I think I'd try it just to see what it felt like. But then I'd go back to being my good ol' brain damaged self =)

well, i guess there was consent in that the people at the time voted for Hitler/Nazis, as they won the 1932 election  fair and square. thereafter, the people just gave the nazis a huge blank check

I know, he won by an epic landslide. But i was talking about the pretties, having their heads messed with.

the fact that Hitler won was an example of how people are swayed by big words and new ideas. Hitler didn't start out as a killer he actually started out as an idealist he represented what the majority of germany felt at the time, wronged by other countries he was a promise of health and money he was the ideal vote.

the election wasnt actually fair, a lot of people were beaten up and threatened, and hitler passed a law so that the nazis were the only party allowed to exist (i'm not sure what year that was in though)

All of that happened after he had been elected the first time. But the first time he won by the pure fact that people wanted him to win, it wasn't until later that his real intentions became clear, that's when the threats and the laws began.
