    We're MORE barbaric now than we were in past ages? Really? And societies with higher access to technology are also less moral than those with less techology?

    Dont know what history you've been taught or have read. Nor what other countries you've examined currently. How about looking at stealing women in Nigeria right now? The genocide in Rwanda that's finally winding down? The fear-based culture run by drug lords in Colombia? C'mon, the list is huge. And then I compare them to The Netherlands, Switzerland, Scandinavia, Canada....

    Wow, you continue to demonstrate any preconceived notions I've gotten from your previous posts.

    Again, just a personal observation but also an acknowledgment that you dont seem to recognize it yourself.

    I've acknowledged perhaps everything, not sure what you continue to pester me about, I'm arrogant and I'm cruel to those who are cruel. The second part of your final sentence was hilariously false, I knew this at the age of 12.

    You found out something everyone else knew already, wanna cookie?

    Yeah, I guess I just wanted some validation on it. Thanks. But it's a stereotypical arrogance that just seems supported by so many common elements, that of Nazism, that I found it disturbing. I can deal with it, no worries

    Correction: THE MOST DEVELOPED

    Germany is a tiny country, how else were they to conquer so much? That being said I thought the whole genocide was stupid :/ A unified and hopefully more peaceful world would have been better but the idiot leader decided to start committing crimes against humanity.
