It's obvious to me that the dumbing down of our citizenry by religion is a major factor in allowing an evidence-denying strongman like Trump to advance as far as he has. How many of our younger generation have been able to learn what reallly happened 75 years ago in Italy, Germany and Croatia and how the Catholic Church ardently supported all the fascist dictators who led the world into war and such incredible carnage? It's up to us who know the history to teach it as widely as possible. I tried putting some photos of what happened to Mussolini on a religious site on democratic underground and was promptly blocked from that site. Religion is still censoring its role in the rise of these monsters.
