    Does it really matter? My statement was that I believe a belief in the superiority of one race over other races is a greater evil than an economic philosophy that has proven a failure. The former allows things like extermination camps and medical experiments and slavery.

    I'm not much interested in weighing the number of deaths in order to reach some sort of measurement of evil.

    Is it just numbers, or is it deeds as well? Both the Germans and the Soviets were pretty efficient at killing people, but I'd put the Japanese and what they did at Unit-731 up against anything the Germans did in terms of evil deeds. Maybe even surpassing.
    Perhaps. But certainly not in quantity.

    Stalin exterminated Jews as well, bro.

    I'd take Nazi Germany. I'm not part of one of the groups they were going after.

    Soviet Russia during their heyday in the 50s and 60s would be amazing to experience. Nazi Germany didn't last as long, and discrimination levels were high, (I am Jewish)

    I am also a Socialist, so I would probably be able to find a job in the Government.

    Re: Nazi Germany or Soviet Russia?

    First I must say I do not like totalitarian regimes.

    Having said that...


    I would chose Russia. Nazi Germany was much more evil because of its openly genocidal policies. Stalin policies were brutal but not genocidal in that the killings were mainly of its own people. Nazi Germany was an indescribable. horrible power based on ridiculous assumptions of racial superiority even when its top members were twisted and abnormal mentally, physically, sexually and in appearance.

    The legacy of Nazi Germany as probably the most evil regime in recent history is unparalleled.

    Though neither are attractive, I'd have to say nazi germany. I'm blonde, speak german, and have a love and admiration for the german countryside and german women, so I probably would've been ok. That is assuming I didn't get waxed in the war. Even on that angle, the germans lost substantially less people even proportionally, so my odds would've been better as a fighting age male.

    I'd also like to think that blonde haired, blue eyed guys like us in an age where german women were indoctrinated to indiscriminately get pregnant from such types, would be knee deep in tail. :-D
