High school, decades ago:  we wondered what life would be like

in an American version of Germany's Third Reich;

each of us stripped of citizenship, just subject or vassal.

Phil Dick explored that in his book, The Man in the High Castle.

Another kind of man, too insular, might bring it forth,

claiming that it will answer almost any sort of need.
Like pestilence, it will spread wildly---East, West, South and North;

voices united in a single tune---Horst Wessel Leid
