"After all, you know, there are worse things in life than death. I mean, if you've ever spent an evening with an insurance salesman, you know exactly what I mean."
Where does corrupt capitalism come in, since that's what we've had for 225 years and before.
Certainly corrupt capitalism is at the core of Imperial Europe after the Dark Ages.
I'm sure a good case could be made that it has been around forever.
IMV, Fascism and Communism have their roots in corrupt capitalism.
Some what surprised with the poll results so far, 69.57 % saying the Nazis.
The number of non combatants civilians murdered by Germany's Nazis is around 11 million.
The number of non combatants civilians murdered under Communism is approximately 100 million. < The Black Book of Communism : Free Download & Streaming : Internet Archive >
I've talked too and interviewed many who have lived under both the Nazi occupation and later on under Soviet occupation. Everyone said the Soviets were way worse than the Nazis.
Adolph Hitler was only interviewed by one English reporter in his life time. I believe the interview was done for Time magazine just before the Germans invaded Poland.
It's interesting when Hitler was asked about Stalin and the Soviet Union and Hitler said that National Socialism ( Nazism) was the true socialism not Communism.
When Stalin was interviewed he admired what Hitler had accomplished in Germany but claimed that Communism was a better form of socialism.
Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union were allies until June of 1941.
If you look back at newspapers and magazines published before 1941 you'll notice that many Communist and labor unions in America supported Nazi Germany until Hitler attacked the Soviet Union in June of 1941. "How could a socialist attack another socialist comrade" ?
One incident that the liberal revisionist refuse to tell or deny was during the "Battle of Britain" when Great Britain was fighting for it's life, many of the labor unions in America organized wild cat strikes on the docks and war plants to prevent war materials from reaching England. The CIO (Congress of Industrial Organizations) today part of the AFL-CIO was behind most of these strikes in America. The wildcat strike at North American Aviation getting most of the coverage and FDR had to send in the troops to keep the war production lines open.
As for those Germans who lived in Germany during the era of Hitler, except for the Jews and some others, most Germans still had personal freedoms unlike those living in the Soviet Union. The propaganda of the "lassen Sie mich Ihre Papiere sehen" (Let me see your papers) was no different than what went on in America during W W ll or even during the Vietnam war.
How many were around during the Vietnam war ? Remember the MP's and Shore Patrol especially in airports and if you had a military haircut and wearing civilian clothing you were approached and asked for either your liberty pass, leave papers or your draft registration card. You better have come up with one of them.
From 1965 - 1969 is was common with most law enforcement agencies in America if you were a male of military age and got pulled over by the cops they asked for more than your drivers license, they also asked to see your draft registration card.
When you look at the 100 million non combatants civilians murdered by Communist, the Vietnamese Boat People, Cambodian genocide, Mao's "Cultural Revolution" in China, Che Guevara ramming a knife in to the stomach of a young pregnant woman because her brother wasn't a Communist, the Communist terrorist of Rhodesia and South Africa during the 70's and 80's. Did I for get to mention Stalin ?
The Communist tip the scale as being worse than the Nazis.
Even Chairman Mao said "Revolution is not a dinner party."
