Deja Vu All Over Again

The other night I watched the Olympic opening ceremonies from Berlin - oops, I mean Beijing.

Very impressive displays of thousands of people moving in sync and cutting edge technology.

From the reviews, it's amazing to see how much people are still impressed with nationalist displays of pageantry, even when they come from one of the only 21st century nations that could be literally described as fascist. One gets the impression that if the Nazi's hadn't been homicidal anti-Semites, the Nuremberg rallies would still be considered nifty displays of national pride.
