Really short, and mostly filler designed to create a sense of suspense... with the big idea being to be truthful, especially if you're an office holder.
The only respectable thing I found in it was in the notes and further reading sections, which included scholarly work on democide by Rummell.

For a very short book, it manages to pack quite a punch to the gut for the reader with just a few sentences. The theme of the book is that we as a society should not be blindingly following our leaders and trusting that they have our best interests at heart. To emphasis this theory, the author tells the story of the holocaust and asks the question of how did so many people get duped by their elected representatives and found themselves on the very wrong side of the tracks. Tracks that led to the death camps the Nazi's and European people set up. His answer is very simple, but utterly chilling: Lie to them. The problems the Nazi's faced wasn't in the camps themselves, but in the cities across Europe and trying to get their target groups into the trains. Once they were locked in the trains, they weren't getting out until they reached the death camp. And the Nazi's lied to them to get the families into the mobile prisons. Such a simple lie promising better living conditions and work and school and food and shelter. And THAT is how they got onto the trains willingly. This is a quick book to read, but the images will stay in my head forever.
