But even 90% of the Mandate of Palestine was to much for them.
    Once again, you use words like "authority" and "mandate" to justify acts of violence (as I've already explained in more detail on another thread).

    You're still failing to make a rational distinction between the American annexation of Hawaii and the Japanese annexation of Taiwan, for example. The "paid for Hawaii" argument is pure slavery. All governments look for ways to expand their power and then influence the public opinion in those areas to their advantage. What Japan was doing did not justify aggression any more than America's westward expansion a 1-2 centuries earlier.

    Yeah, Hitler was obviously one evil dude, but his intentions for the Jews changed over time. The "final solution" started out as eviction, not murder. Remember that even the Nazis have to sell themselves as a benevolent government to their subjects. Heck, they were all about animal rights dontchyaknow...

    Yeah, I screwed up when I changed that sentence and forgot to edit out the United States.

    Zweites Buch is very likely to be an outright forgery, since very little pre-1945 references to it exist. Besides, it was a futurist vision that saw an alliance between Greater Germany and the British Empire, and war with the United States only a distant eventuality. This fits the Madagascar Plan or a similar eviction scenario perfectly.

    And then you use the word "appeasement" - which is precisely what the United States is now doing to China and North Korea, but it's not what non-interventionism would entail. When two sharks called Fascism and Communism start to bite each-other, you just get out of the way and watch them bleed, while sticking to free market capitalism yourself and thus surpassing them both evermore economically. And you accept any and all refugees, which would have prevented the Holocaust outright.

    The U.K. had declared war on Germany, not the other way around. And the idea that USSR could have held out more than a month without western aid is ridiculous - their system was on the verge of collapse even without Hitler.

    Japan is a nation with an army. Jews are a religious and ethnic group, which contained certain movements within it, some perfectly innocent, some dangerous, and some downright criminal. You can't compare the two because they don't attack the same way.

    Why ask me? I'm only explaining Hitler's thinking, I'm not agreeing with him.

    Yes, that's a possibility too. Most politicians lie, they just aren't as great actors as Hitler. He really had the world convinced that he was a genuine nut.

    That's true. I downloaded it on audio book, but it was so incoherent I never made it past the first 20 minutes or so.


    (I'm going to skip the rest - either because I've already addressed it, or because the discussion has lost its original context. I'm not here to defend Axis tyranny, I'm here to criticize government as an institution. If the United States wasn't the greatest nation on Earth, then I wouldn't be living here, but "the lesser of multiple evils" is not necessarily "good".)

    I do want criticism, which is why I post.
    Good.

    Um, that argument can be used to justify pretty much anything - "plantation owners weren't forcing their slaves to do anything, but refusal to work had consequences"...
    And in that context, that statement is accurate. I thought you were an anarchist? Perhaps you are a "selective anarchist". [/QUOTE]

    You mean outside of the fact that the United States PAID CASH for the Louisiana territories, graciously PAID CASH Mexico for the California and New Mexico territories after Mexico lost the war it started, PAID CASH for the Gadsden Purchase, and PAID CASH for Alaska?

    Our "aggressions" were similar to Japan's? How much cash did the Japanese pay China for Manchuria before they invaded? How much cash did Japan pay Britain for Singapore. How much were the Dutch offered for Indonesia?

    Hmmmm?

    It seems that the difference between "substantiation" and "rhetoric" for you is whether an argument fits your preconceived notions, which were clearly shaped with a pro-government bias... It will take some time and effort, but you need to learn to think critically and overcome this bias. Willful failure to do so, popular or not, can only be described as intellectual dishonesty!

    Um, I'm not understanding what you wrote there, but it seems like it comes from ignorance of what Anarcho-Capitalism is and isn't.

    Ah, paying for your slaves makes slavery a-OK...

    (And many of those intergovernmental purchases were made under a threat of violence, but that's beside the point.)

    It looks like the government apologists here just ran out of excuses and will now boil in their cognitive dissonance for a while. Enjoy.

    It's the Poles everyone forgets.

    If you're like most people, you believe that Hitler invaded Poland because he wanted to kill Jews. Not so.

    It was all about:

    Lebensraum (German for "habitat" or literally "living space") served as a major motivation for Nazi Germany's territorial aggression. In his book Mein Kampf, Adolf Hitler detailed his belief that the German people needed Lebensraum – for a Großdeutschland, land, and raw materials – and that it should be taken in the East. It was the stated policy of the Nazis to kill, deport, Germanize or enslave the Polish, and later also Russian and other Slavic populations, and to repopulate the land with reinrassig (racially pure) Germanic peoples. The entire urban population was to be exterminated by starvation, thus creating an agricultural surplus to feed Germany and allowing their replacement by a German upper class.
    In fact, Hitler specifically announced that his intention was to kill Poles, and did not mention Jews at all.

    Before the Nazis invaded Poland, Hitler announced, “The destruction of Poland is our primary task.” He also commanded, “Kill without pity or mercy all men, women, and children of Polish descent or language. Only in this way can we obtain the living space we need.” Hitler’s head of secret police, Heinrich Himmler, promised that “all Poles will disappear from the world.” --3 Million Holocaust Victims Were Non-Jews
    As for annihilation:
    Poland lost one-quarter of its population in the war. Portions of Poland were polluted by Nazi invaders who built their largest extermination camp on Polish soil. Virtually every Polish family tasted the bitter taste of displacement, death, pauperization and, after the war, total powerlessness.

    In 1939, Hitler said: "The destruction of Poland is our primary task. The aim is not the arrival at a certain line but the annihilation of living forces. . ." (Lukas 4) Before Jews became the primary target, Poles were shipped to Auschwitz by the tens of thousands.150,000 Polish Catholics went to Auschwitz. In Sachsenhausen, 20,000 Poles perished, in Mauthausen, 30,000, in Neuengamme, 17,000 (Lukas 38); 35,000 went to Dachau, 33,000 Polish women went to Ravensbrück many of them to be experimented upon, with glass and other objects implanted in their uteruses.

    Unlike those Jews who survived the Holocaust and moved to the West, Poles remained captives of the Soviets for 45 years. Unlike the Jews, Poles were never individually compensated by Germans for forced labor and camp atrocities. Tens of thousands of Poles were executed for helping Jews. In the Belzec concentration camp alone, 1,000 Poles died solely and exclusively for having been caught helping the Jews (Lukas 150). In 1944, after the fall of the Warsaw Uprising, the Germans ordered the entire population of Warsaw man, woman, child to leave the city, somewhat like the Khmer Rouge leaders who did the same to the capital of Cambodia Phnom Penh in the 1970s. Two hundred thousand Catholic civilians died in that uprising, of those who survived, 50,000 were shipped to concentration camps.

    The Germans closed all scientific, artistic and literary institutions in Poland. Some 2250 periodicals ceased publication. Polish university professors were shot or sent to concentration camps. Calorie allotment for those Poles who were not shipped to concentration camps was 669 calories per day. --The Forgotten Holocaust

    Obama did a good thing with bashing Holocaust deniers, no doubt.
    Honest question, how do you define a Moderate?

    The most common definition is a Democrat of any type or a Republican sounding like a Democrat.

    No one espousing individual freedom, personal responsibility, or self-control can possibly be a moderate in the eyes of the fools using the word.
