"I lived in Austria under Adolf Hitlerís regime for seven years. Dictatorship did not happen overnight. It was a gradual process starting with national identification cards, which we had to carry with us at all times.... Gun registration followed, with a lot of talk about gun safety and hunting accidents.... Freedom of speech was the next target....  With a large network of informers, people were afraid to say anything political, even in their own homes."[1] Kitty Werthmann
