Good point. As horrible as it was Nazi Germany did have a few good pointsI'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
A fanatic is one who can't change his mind and won't change the subject.
A lie gets halfway around the world before the truth has a chance to get its pants on.
I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.
Actually the Soviets practiced genocide against Ukranians, Cosaks, and probably a few other I don't know about. On a raw number and per capita basis, more people died in the gulags than in concentration camps. On a per capita basis, more Soviets than Germans died in the war as soldiers. On a per capita basis, more Soviets than Germans died in the war as civilians.
So what's the real way of choosing between one or another? No not what the media/academia has programmed you to think by indoctrination, but what your group identity is. What's your group identity?
You do NOT want to be a German, Ukranian, business owner in the Soviet Union.
You do NOT want to be a Jew, Gypsy, Communist, or even an ethnic Russian in Nazi Germany.
I'd be a German Nazi, and if I had to fight I'd do my damnest to keep the Soviets out of Europe as much as I could. If I'm fighting the western powers I'd surrender as soon as possible.
Seriously I would shoot whoever demanded me to decide between two ****ed up regimes.
Germany. Not because of the history, but because I like German culture and the country better. Learning German and vacationing there, compared to nearly being attacked while visiting Moskva, does have an impact and a bias on my mind
