    I’ve lived here for more than a year and this is just an excuse to get the university to pay them to watch a football match. Good for them if they can get it.Report

    The “stick a wizard in it” one makes me more wonder if there’s an old knight hanging out somewhere there, warning people to “choose wisely.”Report

    Obligatory Irish joke: A man is walking down the street during Belfast during the Troubles. He gets accosted by another man who asks him if he is Catholic or Protestant. The accosted man says he is Jewish only to hear “I must be the luckiest Muslim in all Belfast.”Report

    The NAZI propaganda article is probably mistitled: the study apparently found that propaganda in the form of media and theatre lacked persistence, it was children’s education and youth groups. I don’t believe Goebbels, whose picture heads the article, had any direct role. What I think this is suggesting is the importance of childhood peers in forming value systems, and not top-down information from news or film.

    Don’t see that the study is published/available, but would be interesting if they compared elder German attitudes with those of elder French or Polish attitudes. Germany was not particularly anti-Semetic by continental standards when the NAZIs took power.Report
