The only reason Nazism and other  'supreme race'  ideals even exist is for the same reason they existed at any time throughout history:  IGNORANCE.      The knowledge of this does conjur the old adage  "...those who forget the past are doomed to repeat it..."   but I should hope with the education, and awareness that's out there nowadays in spite of those who insist on pushing such negative ideals--that there are enough people out there to put stops to said injustices BEFORE they have a chance to get out of control.      

It's still rather scary to think...the NEGATIVE  power of influence we can have on the minds of the young...our children...who look up to us for guidance and their INITIAL education of the world at large and the people who inhabit it.     Those who are currently members of various hate groups (I'll kindly leave the names of said groups out of this post....certainly NOT out of respect, but merely for discretionary purposes)  suffered the ignorance of generations before them and took the values they learned from those earlier generations far too close to heart.     The only real way to combat this is to learn and teach tolerance and learn and teach that kindness is always the best virtue, and to teach our children to do their best to just walk away from those who do NOT idealize said virtues.      The stronger we make our children now, will yield stronger and more unified generations to come.     Will it happen overnight?    No.    For that matter, it may NEVER come to fruition at all...but I do believe it can be squelched considerably more than it ever has.
