In response to the nonsense of a thread started by all the American hating boobs on this site, I have decided to show that EUROPE is in fact much more
like 1930s Nazi Germany then the USA ever could hope to be.
Shall we look this over?
Reasons for Hitlers assention to power
Public feeling, guilt, blame, and responsability
Hitler rose to power in Nazi Germany for many reasons. Among these were the Germans bitterness because of the Versailles treaty and the resulting lack
of national pride. Of the treaty, the main clause of contention was 231, which assigned BLAME of WWI to Germany. One of the problems with admiting
guilt in this case, was the fact that Germany was supposed to pay reperations to the victims, which they flatly refused.
There is a direct link between this responsability that Nazi Germany did not want to shoulder and the responsability that modern Europe refuses to
shoulder. Among these include the current continental problems of Africa and much of the middle east.
Just as Germany refused to pay reperations to France, so to does modern Europe refuse to spend the money to fix the unfathomable problems they have
caused with their centuries of imperialism.
In contrast, the US has NEVER
started colonies in another land. In fact, the closest thing to colonies the US has are military bases, which
were either AGREED on by the nations own government, or are still standing from WWII. In either case, their is absolutely no argument that this
constitutes imperialism of any kind.
Next, take the National Socialist German Workers’ Party 25 point plan, around which Nazi Germany was built.
01) The unity of all German-speaking peoples.
02) The abolition of the Treaty of Versailles.
03) Land and colonies to feed Germany’s population.
04) Only Germans can be citizens. No Jew can be a German citizen.
05) People in Germany who are not citizens must obey special laws for foreigners.
06) Only German citizens can vote, be employed or hold public office.
07) Citizens are entitled to a job and a decent standard of living. If this cannot be achieved, foreigners (with no rights as citizens) should be
08) No further immigration of non-German must be allowed. All foreigners who have come to Germany since 1914 must be expelled.
09) All citizens have equal rights and duties.
10) The first duty of a citizen is to work.
11) All payments to unemployed people should end.
12) All profits made by profiteers during the war must be shared.
13) Nationalisation of public industries.
14) Large companies must share their profits.
15) Pensions must be improved.
16) Help for small shops and businesses; large department stores** must be closed down.
17) Property reform to give small farmers their land.
18) An all-out battle against criminals, profiteers, etc., who must be punished by death.
19) Reform of the law to make it more German.
20) Improve education so that all Germans can get a job.
21) Improve people’s health by making a law for people to do sport.
22) Abolition of the Army, and a new People’s Army in its place.
23) German newspapers must be free of foreign influence.
24) Freedom of religion.
25) Strong central government with unrestricted authority.
Of all these points, the only 'negative' ones that could be aplied to either the US or Europe would be the socialistic points, such as #13, to
Europe. Europe and the US share basic freedom and life improvement points such as #9, 20, 24.
Hitler was a master manipulator of the people. He used a minority (the Jews) to unite his people, blaming as many problems - especially economic - as
he could on them.
This too, falls in line with European thinking. The unbelievable doublespeak of the most radical Europeans serves as the best example. On the one
hand, the US is portrayed as a great evil dominating force which must be stoped at all cost. We are a small part of the world and yet have a lot of
influence. Our corporations are too large, we have too much power, we are rich, and arrogant.
These are all EXACTLY the same things that HITLER said about JEWS. He said they were evil. He said they were a small part of the population yet had
all the money. He said they stuck their nose where it didn't belong. They had too much power. They were, in fact, evil according to him, mostly
because of their buisness practices.
Yet on the other hand, the Jews were vastly inferior. They were, according to Hitler, genetically inferior in fact. Physically, they were considered
weak, and mentally their minds were only good for manipulation, not anything constructive. Hitler, was in fact arrogant himself in his belief that
Aryans were so much superior to others.
Now consider the sentiment of some people on the US. Americans are stupid and uneducated. Physically we are inferior because we are fat. Americans,
according to the arrogant European types, are both physically and mentally inferior to themselves.
Now, Americans on the other hand have no such sweeping opinions of others. The French are the butt of many of our jokes, but the fact is we don't
care enough about any Europeans to truelly dislike anyone else, unlike Europeans who seemingly spend every last drop of effort in their hatred of the
Germany experienced economic collapse due to hyper inflation. Germany had loans and reperations to pay (loans from the US were recalled because of the
great depression, reperations to France from WWI which they could not afford), and simply printed more money in order to pay for it. This, in turn,
caused high rates of unemployment in Germany.
Now, comparing the US to Europe, Europe has both a higher unemployment rate and a slower growing economy. While the US does have outstanding loans,
they are no where near to what Germany was dealing with in terms of proportion. In addition, the loans could be paid of by the US in under a decade
(in 1 year if extreme messures were taken). Not only that, but those nations that hold our loans could not hope to collect these loans without
destroying their own economy, thus providing an insurance against this. On the otherhand, Europe has socialistic programs already in place along with
a huge (compared to the US) unemployed population (see France and Germany).
Important factors in a dictatorship and other thoughts
An armed vs. unarmed population
There are several over riding things that every dictator needs to accomplish before a population can be controled. The most important however, is
dissarming the population. It doesn't matter if you are speaking of Stalin, Hitler, or Saddam. That is the very first thing every dictatorship must
accomplish - without it, the population can easilly fight back.
In this regard, there is no comparison between the US and Europe. The US is the most heavilly privately armed population in the world, while all over
Europe the people are being stripped of their fundamental right and ability to defend themselves.
Lack of difference in political view
It is very important for a dictator to be liked by the population in the initial moments. What a dictator wants is for everyone to be on the same page
The US hardly fits this profile, as our last two elections have shown. The US is very devided, and every political race becomes a war to barely win.
On the other hand, European political thought is much more streamlined, with a heavy socialist influence on economic policy and overall a very liberal
mindset. A savy ambitious dictator wunna-be could easilly manipulate this, just as Hitler manipulated people wanting jobs and German patriotism.
I made this post not to show how close to Nazi Germany Europe is, but to show just how stupid such comparisons are. It is not close to complete, or my
best work. I could easily manipulate things to make Europe look as if it were already under fascist rule. But thats the point here, you can really
make anyone look as bad as you want if you twist things the way you want them.
For all you out there (GhostSoldier, Anok, etc) who wish to make this comparison - STOP, IT ISN'T THERE!
This idea that the US is in any shape or form close to Nazi Germany is a joke - a complete fabrication of the minds of American hating boobs who wish
nothing more then to comfort each other in the thought of how evil America really
I for one am sick of it.
