For those ignorant right wing germans and supporters of racial superiority of the german people that they were the cause of tech advancement, please
do reconsider the facts.
Let's take the highest achievement of mankind - rocket science. Werner von Braun had been touted as the father of rocket science tech. Nothing can be
further from the truth. It was the american Robert Goddard that was the true father of rocket science.
During the 20s, rocket science was much touted and many scholars shared information for the progress of mankind's scientific evolution. Space trave
and rocket societies were formed by them for such advancement, and many hailed Goddard as the pioneer, through his intelligence and perseverance.
He was from the middle class, worked his way up, received no funding and rosed upon his own merits. He was a natural genius, a human that could only
had evolved from the benefits of an equal and peaceful society america is, where no stone is left unturned in the quest for knowledge, and free to do
so without ego, fear or favor.
He shared much of what he experimented and Braun was the beneficiary of that american free charity. Von Braun was a son of the nobility, and thus he
had no concerns of the working class. He could expand time and effort, living off serfs for his experiments and research. He was no more than a
'nurtured' talent, copying from others' original ideas, and then improving upon it due to opportunities.
Better yet, when he vowed allegience to the Nazis, he had access to enormous stolen fundings and unethical resources such as human slave labour for
his research, and progressed far faster than Goddard, who was governed by an ethical sacred constitution that treated all man as equals. If Goddard
had Braun's resource during the 40s, USA would have landed on the moon by the late 40s.
Another example would be aircrafts. Such tech could have only happened in a free society such as USA, where one is free to question, to ponder and to
experiment, unlike closed societies. It was the american Wright brothers that created history, but the Japs took over by improving upon it to turn out
the deadly Mitshibushi Zero fighter planes awed by the world.
Point is - Much of supposed so called ' German or Jap tech] advancement came from American originality. WIthout a free USA, those authoritarian
nations would still be using horses as transport today.
Look at China and you will see the truth of such claims, nothing egoistical or nationalistic, just plain truths. Had the repressive Chinese CCP
science dept developed anything worthy and original? Everything they had, had either been foolishly given freely by greedy corporations out for a fast
buck using chinese slave labour, or stolen.
The mistake made by americans is that they are complacent. With success, they stopped, to bask and glow in its glory, but unfortunately, other nations
whom are hungry and lacking true and creative talent, are more than ready to steal those originality to, improve upon it, and benefit economically
from it. May USA learn.
As for the supposed ' Nazi miracle', or 'german superiority', it is nothing more than a joke for those in the know. Fortunately, today's majority
of germans arent as ignorant as the right wing minority that hailed the devil Hitler and his goons as wonderboys, whom are nothing more than crooks,
unethical and inhumane monsters in the world of science, economy, tech and research.
Today's german are hardworking, industrious and will progress far. But for natural talent to be developed, they need to be question authoritarianism
more, if not, chosing authoritarianism as a social stability factor, they will lag far behind in evolution, and even become irrelevant one day.
Originality that leaves none behind will progress and evolve mankind.
