To your credit, you see that we're heading downhill fast. But the only answer that's going to work is turning back to Jesus. Sorry if that's not what you wanted to hear, but it's the truth.
The truth shall set you free.
The Nazis and the Commies simply try to substitute some totally nebulous bulldookey like "Aryan Superiority" or "Dictatorship of the Proletariate" for the equally nebulous bulldookey called "God".
