Alex already posted this graphic of Goebbels at Kirksville Today, but I wanted to comment on “Part II” so to speak: Goebbels also said that only in America are gangsters treated like celebrities; indeed, citizens used to approach Al Capone in public and ask him questions like, “hey, Al, who do you want to win the election next week?” Capone was treated like a movie star, as was, later on, John Gotti. America has such a “celebrity-worship culture” that anyone can become an icon. (A print artwork by serial killer Charles Manson — i.e., not the original, but a copy of it — can sell for $2,000).
