Who knows. Tesla had the "Vril" concept long before the Nazi's. Maybe we would not be saddled with rocket technology as being cutting edge. That
would be an improvement, possibly, in that regard.
Better we take the patents and jail the offenders. Instead, we gave them jobs in our government. And we wonder where we went wrong when we look
Concevabley the argument could be made that had we not done that, had we not smuggeled out scientists, their programs might have continued under
Stalin, or the British, or the Chinese, or the Argetinians, etc etc.
Or they could have been put in prison, possibly given an extra pork chop if they were willing to answer a few questions over the years to help get us
to understanding their work. But giving them jobs in our government? After reading the Red House Report, it sent chills up my spine.
Sure, there were mistakes made. No one is perfect. I get that. But you don't take your enemy and give them jobs with security clearance, a large
salary, and a nice office. Something just seems so obviously wrong about that. Only a fool would have conceived of it as a good idea. Then, to
hypocritically paint the Nazi's as frothing monsters hell bent on genetically mixing babies with meatloaf, or something.
Fix it? Umm....revolution?
For all we know, in this existance, its entirely possible we made the right choice by smuggeling out the scientists. We were able to make scientific
advancements that no one can deny have not improved the human race.
The right choice is to jail them, and use their work anyway. We did it in many instances, anyway.
We can't change the past, and the future is unwritten, which leaves us with the now to make changes and we should make the most of what we can affect
now, instead of arguing over something we can't affect.
I don't want to argue. But i will not accept apologia.
