Note the report in column 4: "Nazi Ban On Radio Tightened"
(The Nazi State decides what you are allowed to hear and what source you are allowed to listen to. A German citizen could even be given the death penalty for listening to a radio broadcast which was not approved of by the State. Complete control of what is allowed to be heard, can a parallel be drawn to anything happening today? Well think of how twitter, facebook, google, apple and amazon have colluded to shut down free speech in the U.S.A. all under the guise of the "betterment" of the country. Their stated goal is for them to decide what is true and what is not, who can participate in speech and who cannot, what can be said and what cannot, what you can read and what you cannot. Their attitude is decidedly anti-American and completely totalitarian. What will they do next? Perhaps they will decide that a segment of the population needs to be "deprogrammed" or something like that.

The below report from the Press and Journal makes how a totalitarian system operates even clearer. Note that is states "Germans had been WARNED TO LISTED TO Dr. Schirmer" and how even music was included under the ban. The last sentence is most poignant, "Any person who HAPPENS to hear foreign news involuntarily should either turn the radio off himself OR REPORT IT" Presumably to the Gestapo. That sentence should terrify any free person, and anyone currently involved in repressing free speech should be viewed with a very suspicious eye.)
