Day 293: History never Repeats, Split Enz

So as I write these words the USA state capital has just been stormed by pro-Trump supporters trying to organise a coup to prevent Joe Biden from being certified as the 46th president of the United States. A good German friend of mine wrote the following on my Facebook page:

It’s not over, and this is symbolic. The Munich Beer Hall putsch was the first (and neither the first, nor the most significant) sign of the young Weimar Republic being in trouble. Security forces and parts of the army colluded. Why was there no police, no national guard in Washington? Because they collude.

In response to his comment, this song came to mind as it obviously reflects the hope of I have for the USA. All I can say is the world would be a safer place is DJ Trump was not a free man.
