Hitler's Dictates make us small,
we're yet bound in chains.
But one day we'll again walk tall,
no chains can us restrain.
For hard are our fists,
Yes! And knives at our wrists,
for youth to be free,
Navajos lay seige.
--from Wikipedia

I wonder if it's telling that in my years in the Boy Scouts our education on the history of the organization repeatedly referenced the Hitler Youth (in as much as the Boy Scouts were created as a counter to that sort of idea) but I had to learn about the Edelweiss Pirates from hidden fluff audio logs in a video game.

The idea of a group of dropout punks dedicated to camping and bullying the official state youth organization sounds very romantic and I wonder why there hasn't been much fiction about these groups. It's also sort of charming that as history sees them, the group who names their hooliganism after the Navajos are the less racist side. Though I suppose righteous havoc inspiring righteous havoc is something a certain kind of person could be proud of.
