The hard press of student loans

Ratzinger was 'unwilling participant' in Hitler Youth...and get this - he was pressured to join because of the cost of graduate school:

"As soon as I left the seminary, I did not go straight into the Hitler Youth, ("I stopped for a lolly on the way..." -ed.)" Ratzinger said in an interview, "and that was difficult because in order to qualify for the reduction in schooling fees that I needed, you had to prove you had paid a visit to the Hitler Youth."

This is an evil, evil man.

But really, where else have we seen educational funding linked to fascist behavior - Did you know that "No Child Left Behind" Funded-High Schools must provide the US Govt with a mailing/phone list of recruitable youth?
