Arbeit-Partei rally before the Reichsconference
It should be of moderate interest to most of us, that the German translation for the "Labour Party" is not a lot different to another party which swept to power in 1930's Deutchland. You can consider any other historical parallels in your own time. The fortunate difference here, is that were are in a rather desolate Berlin and not a tidy pre-war Nuremburg. Yes, it's the last Reich's rally before the general election; speeches are written and props are cobbled together a few hundred feet below the pavement in Berlin. It's very unpleasant above, not many banks and companies are left standing, energy supplies are disappearing, food prices have gone through the roof, houses desperately need to be built, healthcare has declined terribly, jobs are in short supply, the national debt is higher than ever before and the standard of living has plumeted. Deja vu with 1945 is not easy to avoid. Like then, the ailing plutocrats and brainwashed followers doted on their feeble Furher, showering praise on his abilities and wisdom. They knew that the Reds [Blues] were coming and anything other than sycophantic, deluded, adherence to their cause would have brought them to a state of frenzied panic. But liberation is still far off, the packs of cards have come out and they're playing friendly games of patience, in the flickering lights, whilst sipping on the Jagermeister.
