Hitler made a statement with his mustache. I’m not sure what that statement was supposed to be. Look at me, I’m nuts? Hitler wanted to be an artist before he tried to kill off so many people – which goes to show that the world would be much better off if everyone supports art.
Hitler used his war to plunder the greatest art treasures. He also used art to fight his war. Whatever anyone could say about the content, German propaganda was so effective that Americans and Russians copied his tactics. The symbols they used were powerful. The swastika was an ancient symbol for luck and wellbeing. The eagle is strength and victory. Red, white, and black are the most powerful colors in advertising.
There’s just no getting around it, Hitler wasn’t Hitler without factoring in his feelings about art. How could a man with the sensitivity to paint flowers and dogs be so heartless and cruel? Or perhaps the real question is who will be the next Hitler? What country will follow a lunatic into battle?
I know it’s going on in the world right now. There’s always a crazy person who wants to rule the world and others will follow their ideas. As a person with German ancestors, maybe WWII hits me too close to home. All of my people were in the US at that time, but German war posters show people who could be my relatives. Old newsreels show familiar-looking people with guns at concentration camps.
It’s been said many times, but can’t be said enough, “Never again”.
All of this seems too heavy for a Sunday morning with a stupid topic like “moustache”. People either have moustaches or not, and hopefully the people with them aren’t women. Also, hopefully the moustaches don’t have leftover lunch in them.
Amish men just don’t look right without one. I mean really, if you’re going to let your beard grow, why shave off the moustache? It makes them look cranky.
The best thing about Vikings other than their cool helmets is that they often braided their beards. Sensible and stylish for when they were off plundering. Pirates did that too, so maybe beards are just a sign of lawlessness and need to be repressed. Maybe Muslim men would be in a better mood if they braided their beards with flowers? Just saying. Someone’s got to find a way to make the world a better place.
