Myth about resistance.
Graf von Stauffenberg.

The threat of defeat on all fronts and possible loss of personal privileges lead to the decision that the dilettantish acting leader must be liquidated.

I read the German part out loud to myself... It's such a pretty language, even if I'm pronouncing it all wrong~

I feel like I need to read a story, or hear a context in some depth, to know what you truly are saying in this quote. This happens though, yes? Times of struggle, transforming industry and rising pride tend to follow the 'liquidation'?
People often like having their leader proven to believe in them, in turn. To have an interest and investment in their country or constituency, and to offer meaningful pursuit to meeting its needs. I find many consider these things to be honored. It makes the popularity of Trump seen on one side as ironic, then I consider all of those who see his promises as him being truly involved in our welfare; perhaps it's not so ironic, but rather desperate?

Maybe you don't know about the assassination attempt that Stauffenberg did... Tom Cruise did a movie about it called "Valkyrie". Never saw it, but judging Tom Cruise acted as Stauffenberg, I can be sure what kind of stupid movie it might be. Compare it to when Germans tried to make a movie about American history of the founding time - they don't know a shit.
So American's know a shit about German history accurately.

It's about the assassination attempt Stauffenberg and others did on Hitler.
Maybe you don't know or it's different in other countries - here they try for years to establish Stauffenberg as a democrat (!).
Clearly he wasn't a democrat, every serious historian is going to tell you, he even was more a follower of that order (as a nobleman) that the Nazis errected than others maybe were.
He only had the opinion, with a group of others like him, as WWII progressed, Hitler's not up to the job. He's not the right man for that position. He's going to bring ruin to the Reich.
So they wanted to do an assassination on him and put somebody else there who rather was up to the job in order to save what you could save.

But, the attempt failed and the conspirators were killed.

You know, it's one of the anniversaries I put up in order - say, the Western mainstream media attends his propaganda, so I think I can do the same where I think what they spread is not correct.
Repeating it over and over again makes something get stuck in peoples' heads. If they can do this, I can do this myself the same way.
