Now before I begin, I and everyone else knows that the slaughter of innocent human beings simply due to faith is an abomination so lets not bring up
the Holocaust. It is one of the worst atrocities in recent human history and in no way does this thread justify any of that and this thread is not
about that. Now, let me begin.
We all know about the Nazism. For those of you that aren’t completely sure of what their agenda and ideology was, here is a brief outline:
Nazism was the ideology and practice of the Nazi Party and of Nazi Germany. It was a unique variety of fascism that involved biological racism and
anti-Semitism. Nazism presented itself as politically syncretic, incorporating policies, tactics and philosophies from right- and left-wing
ideologies; in practice, Nazism was a far right form of politics.
The Nazis believed in the supremacy of an Aryan master race and claimed that Germans represent the most pure Aryan nation. They argued that Germany's
survival as a modern great nation required it to create a New Order — an empire in Europe that would give the German nation the necessary land mass,
resources, and expansion of population needed to be able to economically and militarily compete with other powers. (Source: wiki)
So we know they blamed the Jews, but for what?
During the time of the Nazi’s rise to power, Germany was in an economic depression worse than today, and with a population just larger than the UK,
it had 3 million unemployed people. So, just like today, when a country is in crisis and people can’t find work, they usually blame the immigrants
or some other minority group. Nothing new there.
So Hitler said to the people, vote for me, and I will get you jobs and get rid of those who don’t belong. Just one question: if you had been made
unemployed, everyone around you was unemployed, would you vote for a politician that promised jobs at the expense of a small minority? The answer is
more than likely yes. If you had a family to feed, you certainly would.
Also, Hitler was angry with the Treaty of Versailles, which most Germans at the time were too. This treaty made it so the Germans accepted
responsibility for World War 1, and restricted their ability to raise an army or navy. Hitler promised the people of Germany that they had rights just
as any nation and he would seek to abolish the treaty. Again, you would vote for him if you were a German of the time.
So we see how he got into power, right?
Once in power, what good did the Nazi’s do for the people of Germany, or at least the ones they deemed to be German citizens? Well Hitler said : The
first duty of every citizen must be to work mentally or physically. No individual shall do any work that offends against the interest of the community
to the benefit of all.
Simply put, you do anything in the community to offend the state, you will be punished. Crime rates fell dramatically. No drunken louts smashing
windows in the street, unlike today in the UK where this is now common in every small town and large city throughout the entire country every weekend.
Hitler delivered on his promise to get jobs for the citizens, cleaned up their act, brought pride back to a nation and got the economy on track. Take
away the fact he killed millions of innocent Jews and started World War 2 and Nazi Germany wasn’t all that bad.
What do others here think about this? Please don’t start calling me a Nazi or say I’m in any way shape or form a racist, as I am not. I just
wondered what people think. Would you have voted Nazi if you had been in Germany in the 1930’s? I see a lot of Americans on ATS against immigration,
would you have felt the same way about Jewish people back then too? Would be interesting to see others opinions on this small matter. This is also my
first post, so be kind
