I was just sitting here watching a Tom Clancy movie, The Sum of All Fears, when this guy in the movie who is a Nazi made this speech. It sort of strikes me as odd how accurate it is when one considers what's going on today. The character's name is Dressler. Here it is from 2002:

Most people believe that the 20th century was a death struggle between Communism and Capitalism, and that Fascism was but a hiccup. But today we know better.​
Communism was a fool's errand. The followers of Engels and Marx are gone from this earth, but the followers of Hitler abound and thrive. Hitler, however, had one great disadvantage: He lived in a time when Fascism, like a virus, like the AIDS virus, needed a strong host in order to thrive.​
Germany was that host. But as strong as Germany was it could not prevail. The world was too big.​
Fortunately, the world has changed. Global communications, cable TV, the internet; Today the world is smaller and a virus does not need a strong host in order to thrive.​
This virus is airborne.​
One more thing: Let no man call us crazy. They called Hitler crazy. But Hitler was not crazy, he was stupid. You don't fight Russia and America. You get Russia and America to fight each other and destroy each other.​
