Today In World History, 1943, And A Word To The Students Of America: "To be a student and not a revolutionary is a contradiction."

"Sixty-seven years ago, on Feb. 18, 1943, three courageous, patriotic German college students from Munich, the birthplace of the Nazi party, were arrested by the Gestapo on charges of treason, a crime that was punishable by death.

The three – 22-year-old medical student Christoph Probst, 24-year-old Hans Scholl, also a medical student, and Hans’ 21-year-old sister Sophie -- were part of a small group of university students whose code name was The White Rose..."

"To be a student and not a revolutionary is a contradiction." --Salvador Allende, Democratically elected president of Chile, overthrown in 1973 by a US backed coup
A Word From The Sponsor"Nothing is so unworthy of a civilized nation as allowing itself to be governed without opposition by an irresponsible clique that has yielded to base instinct. It is certain that today every honest American is ashamed of his government. Who among us has any conception of the dimensions of shame that will befall us

and our children when one day the veil has fallen from our eyes and the most horrible of crimes - crimes that infinitely outdistance every human measure - reach the light of day?

Gunner GrrrlIf the American people are already so corrupted and spiritually crushed that they do not raise a hand… if they abandon the will to take decisive action …if they are so devoid of all individuality, …turning into a spiritless and cowardly mass - then, yes, they deserve their downfall." --The German WWII Student Resistance, "White Rose", Leaflet #1, remixed.

The remix, in Music and Words...

"Loneliness, estrangement, isolation describe the vast distance between man and man today. These dominant tendencies cannot be overcome by better personnel management, nor by improved gadgets, but only when a love of man overcomes the idolatrous worship of things by man. We regard men as infinitely precious and possessed of unfulfilled capacities for reason, freedom, and love.

In affirming these principles we are aware of countering perhaps the dominant conceptions of man in the twentieth century: that he is a thing to be manipulated, and that he is inherently incapable of directing his own affairs.

We oppose the depersonalization that reduces human beings to the status of things -- if anything, the brutalities of the twentieth century teach that means and ends are intimately related, that vague appeals to "posterity" cannot justify the mutilations of the present." --The Port Huron Statement, Students For A Democratic Society
