Spread the message that ultimately everybody losers when a demagogue wins (comes to power)

Until I lived in Germany, in the 1990s, I had no idea how much suffering Hitler inflicted on his own supporters--ordinary, adoring citizens like those you might see at a Trump rally. Hitler promised his supporters a great nation, and what did they get? Death by bombing, starvation, rape, destruction of cities, and decimation of the male population in pointless battles on the Russian front and elsewhere. I arrived in Germany all too aware of the atrocities that Hitler unleashed on Jews, gypsies, handicapped people, gay people, communists, and other undesirables but unaware of how deeply Hitler betrayed his so-called "master race" constituents. My German neighbors enlightened me. I intend to share my experiences in Germany with an eye to educating others that demagogues eventually imperil the lives of everyone, including their most ardent fans. Someone can and should make a video to this effect.
