Last night I watched the movie "Downfall."

See, there's this leader who, through propaganda and intimidation, took virtually unprecedented power from the other branches of his government. His military, overextended by wars of choice, was no longer able to defend at home. He became morose, alternately grandiose and raging. His inner circle was afraid to bring him bad news, reinforcing his sheltered bunker mentality. He showed an appalling lack of empathy for the suffering of his people as his enemies gained strength, expecting them to make great sacrifices for his futile causes.

But I digress... I was going to talk about the movie.
