3. What I find creepy is that someone would actually prefer the distorted human figures from that scan as opposed to the aesthetically-appealing ones I posted later. What do you find so offensive about the latter as opposed to the former? Nietzsche would have a field day with you.
1. Are you referring to the destruction of places like the Olbersalzberg? In some ways, I'd like it to have remained, but it would have become a pilgrimage site for unreconstructed Hitler fanatics. Know anyone like that?
2. I've already covered it. That you have the exact same thoughts as creeps like Alfred Rosenberg is very, very telling.
3. Your appreciation and analysis of art seems to be as facile as the Nazis. "Oh, it doesn't look exactly like a real person. My eyes! My eyes!".

However, when I cut and paste the url it shows up. And it's obvious as a Breker. Kitsch, empty and soulless. Inchoate. Also has the classic Nazi art legerdemain of sneaking a hint of eroticism into their crap covered up by classical allusions. Like the clumsy garbage by Ziegler. Such as:

Stylistically it was different. But it shared the same root desire: art as state propaganda.

You don't know if a "racially pure human being" is someone whose father and mother are humans?

Again, says a lot about you.

LOL! So this makes up for starting WWII and killing six million Jews in their conquest to eradicate their race from Europe? You're right, guess the Nazis weren't that bad!

I don't know, if you can put 40% of a nation to work imprisoning and murdering 10% of the nation, while the other 50% of the nation attend parades and profess ignorance, then doesn't that somehow mean that, overall, you are doing good for the majority of the nation?

Yes! And they planted trees. So it's all good!

Those trees were planted so our generation could write scripts on them.

Yay for the Nazis!

I want to read more about how you suggest the Holocaust, the extermination of the Jews and your rating of Hitler with the DSM/APSD. If he had to do it all over again would he? Was he just a pawn of other Jew-haters? Was he just caught up in it all? Was he just a narcissist? A wild-eyed dreamer whose dreams would have come true if it hadn't been for those Russians and pesky Allied Forces? Just how would you diagnose Hitler? What is your diagnosis of him for us unedjumacated folks. Enlighten me.

One cannot defend Nazism, but entlassen's giving it the old college try. Keep dreamin' that dream, entlassen.

(In all seriousness, this is where real names need to come into play. I need to know who to avoid.)

Maybe you've just gotten tired of hearing about concentration camps. Google image Einsatzgruppen (German SS paramilitary death squads) and see the holocaust on the Eastern Front, where millions of Jews/Slavs were walked out of their villages and shot in mass graves. Well, some were shot. Many young children simply had their necks snapped due to bullet shortages.

Afterwards, you might think to yourself "You know what? The tree-planting thing seems a bit insignificant in comparison."

Taken in a vacuum, were some of the Nazi policies "progressive" or even "enlightened"? Sure.

Were there good, honorable Germans during the war? Sure, I guess.

Does Hollywood tend to reduce complex conflict into Good vs Evi over-simplifications? Without a doubt.

Has the world treated Hitler and Nazi Germany unfairly? NO FVCKING WAY!!!

The foundation of the Nazi Party was the belief in their racial superiority. That single belief is what guided even the best-intentioned of their policies (such as -Aryans don't smoke because lung cancer makes them less likely to reproduce). At the very least, this belief structure and the policies based upon them were racist... which doesn't give you much wiggle-room to defend them. But Nazi Germany went beyond simple racist ideology. They went about 11 MILLION steps beyond it.

I appreciate this conversation, entlassen. I believe it's important to always remember that YES the Germans weren't innately evil people. They weren't orcs, or demons. They were people. Well-educated, proud, industrial, every-day people. And in that sense, I find what happened even scarier.

But give it up, entlassen. You're defending the indefensible. You're backing yourself into corners that you can't possibly believe.

Nazi Germany deserves the place that history has given them. And they will stay there forever.
