In the previous two comics, you might notice that their beginnings are nearly identical. This is because I've had a small avalanche of reactions and emotions to the news of late and these two ideas were fighting for dominance. I couldn't work out how to incorporate both into the same comic, so I made two separate ones. I think each stands on its own, but, combined with each other and the couple before them, paint a picture of the struggle that I, probably like a great many Americans, am dealing with at the moment. On one hand, I respect the rule of law and believe society is at its best when it is civil. On the other hand, I am close to people who lost many loved ones at the hands of Nazis and who still bear the scars of the nightmare they perpetrated (and which I fear they will again if given even a sliver of opportunity). Fighting oppression, tyranny, and genocide is a matter of life and death. Rights like free speech are utterly worthless if you and everyone you loved are dead at the hands of those who use the cover of those rights to seize power and corrupt our institutions. Passivity and patience are no longer virtues in the face of an existential threat. And those who do not perceive Nazis as just such a threat either have forgotten the lessons of World War II or are so privileged that they believe they would be immune from the oppression. Neither is a reasonable way to approach fascism.
