Déjà vu

While viewing a video outlining in a potted history the rise to power of Hitler, the following statement left me with a forlorn sense of déjà vu:

"...while left wing opposition was too fragmented by internal squabbles..."

Sound familiar?

During the 2008 financial crisis I recall left comarades heralding the end of capitalism; then climbing back into their Party silos and defending the feuds and arguments that have divided us for decades.

History has taught us we're only ever a couple of elections away from a totalitarian regime coming into power. I'd argue this is easier achievable with our exit from the EU.

When are we going to learn the lessons of history?
