Give the Germans a little bit more credit than that. You who live in Africa know full well it doesn't take a nation of intellectuals to realize that when there is one warlord ranting against a particular ethnic group, it's headed towards somebody's genocide.

    It's not like the extermination camps were advertised. I think you need to re-read some history and see how Hitler grabbed power. It was by populism and demonizing a minority, in a state crumbling under Vienna. When he grabbed power, his campaign was not "kill the Jews".

    Like that's what happened in Germany.

    Re: Which are worse for you? Nazis or Communists?

    As I understand it...

    Depends how you define Nazism and Communism.

    If we use the examples of Nazi Germany (for Nazism), USSR, and PRC (for Communism), then I would say that communism is worse.


    However some people argue that communism is not actually what the USSR and PRC practiced/practice, and a smaller group probably argue that Nazism (National Socialism?) is not what Nazi Germany practiced.

    They are probably also those who would not have much issue with their country of residence adopting Socialism, Communism, or National Socialism, in some form, as the government model.

    As it stands some argue that Socialism/Communism are/is (depending whether you think they're the same thing or not) the current governmental system in most developed nations....



    Me?

    I don't really know... politicians/governments these days can call something whatever they want, no matter what it actually is/is similar to. And most people will accept it at face value...

    That populism being based around demonizing a minority. C'man dude, it was the 1930s, it's not as if people - especially Europeans - were ignorant to past crusades against teh Jooz.

    Like that's what happened in Germany.
    You're right... they grabbed Panzers instead.

    Actually, it was a more gradual process.

    "Oh we'll tag all the jews and limit their rights." ----------> "now we're going to move them all to camps where they can work off their debt to us (for stealing all our money)" -------------> "Oh hey, let's kill em."


    This is, you understand, a far condensed version of events, but in general...



    So no, Germany didn't just "grab Panzers" and go off on a hunt for jews...

    I'm simply saying that it's not as if German's given Europe's past history with Jews did not really see the Holocaust coming.

    People can ignore or avoid realizing something if they really want to, even if it slaps them in the face.


    And many of them won't even realize they're doing so.

    Nazi, anybody that voted Communism is obviously not correctly informed with the goals and views of communism.

    Like I said, some think the USSR an example of communism, whereas it would appear you do not.


    Personally however, if you'll permit a bit of philosophy, I think that communism (as I understand it) would in the long run cause more harm to the people living under it than would National Socialism.

    Not that either option would be my choice.
