Hitler on MAGA rallies

From Escape From Freedom by Erich H. Fromm published in 1941. This is what Hitler had to say about rallies and that is where Trump is most comfortable.

“‘The mass meeting is necessary if only for the reason that in it the individual, who is becoming an adherent of a new movement feels lonely and is easily seized with the fear of being alone, receives for the first time the pictures of a greater community, something that has a strengthening and encouraging effect on most people… If he steps for the first time out of his small workshop or out of the big enterprise, in which he feels very small, into the mass meeting and is now surrounded by thousands and thousands of people with the same conviction… he himself succumbs to the magic influence of what we call mass suggestion.'”

This article describes a typical Trump MAGA rally.
