Freddy Posted October 27, 2007 Report Share Posted October 27, 2007 The Nazi system made most of the young men in Germany feel strong and powerful and ready to dominate the world. It was a heady feeling that built among them and the women who loved them a sense of unity and brothehood, mutual respect---which they shared with no other people. That is the trouble with racist systems throughout history. In the end they are doomed. No race is better than the others. Most Germans loved the system. The economy grew by leaps and bounds after they came into power. They believed the propaganda. To them, it was simply idealism. In the schools, young men and boys studied with intensity. They loved to march and attend immense military parades with grand lines of impressive flags flying. The military hardware was intoxicating to them. They felt merged into the system. I have lived a while in Germany, married a German, lived with Germans and studied the Nazi system. The reason is was so dangerous was that it was not based upon fear, that is was a success in Germany and that is why it was a big threat to the whole rest of the world.Unless you happened to be a Jew, Gypsy, dissenter, or disabled person in Nazi Germany the Germans had nothing to fear from Hitler.
