It's on record he's borrowed techniques from the works of dictator Joseph Stalin, China's propaganda minister, even Nazi propaganda minister Joseph Goebbels yet some Canadians are still on the fence, have their heads buried in the sand and won't see him for what he is..
Astounding the same thing happened in Germany no one saw Hitler coming or most were quiet and scared.
FIRST THEY CAME FOR THE SCIENTISTS, THEN THEY CAME FOR THE LIBRARIANS..
Dictator speaks - What won't be recognized? Your country, your towns.
The fallacy of irrelevance presents an amusing comparison of a choice of phrases between the 'Great Dictator', Adolf Hitler, and the leader of the "benign dictatorship" of Canada, former Alliance Party founder and current Harper Government head of control, Stephen Harper.
Hitler quote (translated):
"Give me four years and I promise you you won't recognize your towns." as quoted in The Harvard Crimson review of The Bombing of Germany, Hans Rumpf; Holt, Rinehart and Winston, 1963.

Is Stephen Harper displaying fascist-like tendencies?
by Nick Fillmore, CBC journalist for 20 years, turned independent. >http://canadiandimension.com/articles/4486/, Bio: http://j-source.ca/users/nick-fillmore
National Post: Stephen Harper over the years has apparently styled himself after the former Soviet dictator, utilizing portions of Joseph Stalins' philosophy in order to divide and conquer, in order to keep himself in power.
"Harper's choice of reading material has disturbed even some of his own party members. A senior conservative cabinet minister(who asked that the national post do not release his name) claims that: Harper had "read and mastered" the biography and leadership style of Russia's Communist dictator Josef Stalin, and said the prime minister has adopted some of the same tactics. "He plays people off against one another, he attempts to inspire fear rather than respect, he is unpredictable and he is 100 per cent focused on eliminating the opposition," the senior Conservative explained."

The Globe and Mail- Stephen Harper has been getting pointers from China's Propaganda Minister, he is the leading controller of Internet and information censorship.
"Mr. Harper’s government, however, barely mentioned the three-day visit of the powerful Communist Party official. How powerful? Forbes ranked Mr. Li No. 19 on a list of the world’s most powerful people. In their words, he “controls what 1.3 billion Chinese see, hear, speak.” he is the de facto controller of media and information censorship." > http://bit.ly/HZ1n6J
Stephen Harper removed former prime ministers paintings in the lobby of the Ottawa House of Commons and replaced them with photos of himself. >http://bit.ly/TLP3RB
The Globe and Mail: "Mr. Harper's idea of what sort of art you should hang on your wall was signalled by his removal of all pictures of previous Conservative prime ministers from their lobby room - including John A. and Dief the Chief - and their replacement by pictures of none other than Mr. Harper himself. History, it seems, is to begin with him. In communist countries, this used to be called the Cult of Personality." http://www.theglobeandmail.com/commentary/to-be-creative-is-in-fact-canadian/article716213/
"The prime minister's official Christmas card portrayed Mr. Harper looking out a living room window adorned with 24 photographs, small to large, of himself." Photo:http://blog.ounodesign.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/05/harperxmas1.301.jpg
