    That's a revision of history, too, since most of the big businessmen in Germany didn't even know the Holocaust was happening.

    Fun little exercise - doubtful accuracy, but the results probably represent me fairly well.
    Interesting...



    I didn't like some of the questions, because (for me) they didn't fully reflect my views - there's one that I wanted to answer "both" on...forget which.


    But in general, it seemed well done.

    They supported the nazis and used slave labour. We knew about that in Britain. America, of course, was very pro-nazi until Germany declared war, and still is essentially.

    If all the African Americans in America vanished over a short period of just few years, could anybody honestly claim to have not noticed?

    There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old's life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.... John Rogers

    With Germany being physically smaller than the state of Montana it would be like Montana losing 6 million people and Montanans not noticing. In another words. BS.

    Look at what I said and compare it to what you are claiming I said. If you cannot see the difference, it is time for a class on reading comprehension.
    Again I ask, proof?
    I know what you wrote and now I want proof, for your conspiracy theory.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    Nazism is a form of fascism, which is state direction of private enterprise.
    It is not a "last ditch defense of capitalism."
    Such an idiotic statement.

    Big business often didn't have a choice.
    The state said, you can earn this much profit, you can pay this in dividends and we will place a government controller to make sure you do what we want.
    Read some history before making inane statements like you just did.

    Acytually you are cherrypicking a statement to trash the original meaning, a duplicitous action not unknown in true believers.
