Obama Plans Youth Corps; Right Balks and Spins Paranoid Fantasies

It is exceedingly odd to me that Obama's Youth Corps plans would conjure up images of Hitler's Youth in the minds of many right wing pundits of the American blogosphere.  It is certainly far more reminiscient of FDRs Civilian Corps which was going on over here pre-WW II. 

It would seem that the return to a consensus,  with its ensuing uniformity  -  all predicted accurately by Howe and Strauss,  who had targeted the years 2005-08 for such a return  -  taps deeply into unconscious fears of Marxism and socialism for many Americans.  But perhaps their constant blogging on it is only so much guilt,  the compulsive cleansing of dirty hands.
