Fadac Thought for the Day (June 30) (16) RE: Thought for the Day (June 30) 30 Jun 99

Ferrara, Yup, as much as we would like to have a black and white world, good/bad, the truth is things are more grungy gray. Germany under the Nazis did quite well. We must remember what it was like in Germany before the Nazis took over. They were ripe for something. The commuinsts tried, but didn't make it. It's hard to vote with your heart when you have a gun to your head...Well, people were starving, and Hitler put them to work. Ok, I think the guy should have been gassed in WWI, but as I live way after the fact, I have to go with what I read, and the stories that I have been told by the people that lived it. Just as the kids now will have to listen to my stories and read about the Viet Nam War, moon flights etc.

The thing to remember is that these guys were socialists (sp?) So cradle to grave care by the government. That includes medical, So if the Nazis are against smoking, should I be for smoking, to show that I'm not a Nazi, that's a bit of a streach I think. They also had law against drunk driving, should I get blasted then drive my car around, just to show my hate for Hitler?

He did a lot of black things, but there were some good things too. Many of which we have in this country today.
