Sunday morning fun with history

I found this while googling abuses of minority power. Interesting to see how a few names make sit seem very contemporary.

The Rise of Stephen Harper

Stephen Harper, the new Prime Minister of Canada, had no intention of abiding by the rules of democracy. He intended only to use those rules to legally establish himself as dictator as quickly as possible then begin the Neo-Conservative revolution.

... Hitler's plan was to establish a majority of elected Nazis in the Reichstag which would become a rubber stamp, passing whatever laws he desired while making it all perfectly legal.

When faced with losing the confidence of the House, Harper manipulated Jean into proroguing Parliament and calling for the new elections he had wanted - on March 3, 2010.

Governor General Jean had fallen under Harper's spell and was signing just about anything put in front of her.

That is enough. I think you get the point. If you hadn't already.
