How quickly can things go bad? Here are some dates in 1933 from Wikipedia's Early Timeline of Nazism:

30 January: President Hindenburg appoints Hitler chancellor

1 February: Dissolution of the Reichstag

27 February: Reichstag fire

28 February: Hitler awarded emergency powers, civil liberties suspended

22 March: Dachau opens

24 March: Enabling Act

That's less than 2 months altogether, from political maneuver to concentration camps and suspending the constitution.

Rusted Neuron – an Intentional Community

Rusted Neuron is an invitation-only 'Intentional Community'. It is not intended to represent a specific focus, although the people you find here are generally intelligent, creative, and witty. Content and conduct rules are set by the community, not by fiat. The one thing we will not tolerate here is intolerance; you can agree to disagree, but you must treat others with respect.

Currently the membership limit is 100 people and there are plenty of slots available. The goal is to try to replicate real-world community interaction and norms enforcement online. Keeping it small is intended to create a village atmosphere by staying well under Dunbar's Number.
