It's a shame people can't see similar "actions" compared to the past. If they did, and ignored the "narrative", things would make a lot more sense.I think the common ground would be that in both cases, millions of peoples lives are affected by decisions that a small group of people in a government are responsible for.
In both cases the government in power boils down to usually a small group of less than a hundred people that are responsible for the message, and direction that is sent to the population of millions. That is how horrific things like the holocaust happen. You believe a German citizen in Germany has a bloodlust and is any different than any other person in any other country at that time or since? Feed a rational person the message you want them to believe, for long enough, with enough "evidence" (factual or made up) and eventually that rational person will believe the only rational solution is the extreme one you provide.
This current situation puts a giant light on behavioral psychology of populations, and how it's moved. It's not a coincidence that countries are all reacting in similar ways. The way to get someone to agree and in this case comply with you is to provide them with enough evidence that leads them to believe that they are making the best/right choice on there own free will.
Folk in all ages think "yeah, that was then, this is now, it'll never happen", Tick tock...
