What was Germany like in the 1930s?
The question is extremely relevant and especially today when vested interests give you a completely falsified image of Germany in that period of history.
Look at his picture, for example. Do they look any different from youngsters you could see today? The answer is no. This is not the image of a repressive society. Quite the opposite.
They went around having fun and making the best of what they had. Such image doesn't fit in with the stereotypes the mass media and other interested parties are feeding you on a 24/7 basis. Why is that?
Today's mass media and other operators want you to believe that National Socialist Germany was all about aggression, violence and racism, all about salutes and hostile marching individuals. Nothing could be more different from the truth. They want you to believe their misrepresentations because their misrepresentations suit their political agenda. They demonise Germany in the 1930s and promote today's depravity and degradation as images of progress.
The so called Multicultural Society, filled up with drugs and lack of moral values that lead to social disintegration is nothing to be proud of but, the mass media and the political elites want to believe that this so called Multicultural Society is marvellous and anybody who rejects social degradation and depravity is called Racist and ultimately a Nazi or Neo Nazi or Fascist.
To start with, there never were any Nazis. Nazis didn't exist. If you want to use the real name you should say National Socialist. They were National Socialist. That was the proper name and the party that promoted National Socialist ideas was the National Socialist German Workers' Party.
It is fundamentally important to distinguish between Germany before what we call World War Two and Germany during and after World War Two. The people who supported National Socialist Germany wanted jobs, families, education, health, a good and decent life. They didn't think about going to war or enslaving other peoples. They thought about the goodness of living together and helping each other as one big family and because of this they showed enormous enthusiasm and this is why they supported so much the ideals of National Socialism.
The people who voted for Tony Blair in 1997 thought about a Labour Party that was offering new and better alternatives and this is why the Labour Party had such an enormous electoral success in 1997. What happened afterwards? What happened after Tony Blair took the country to war against Iraq? How did the political picture change? The people who supported the National Socialist German Workers' Party in the 1930s were not much different from the people who believed in Tony Blair in 1997. They wanted change. They wanted something better. We cannot blame ordinary people when all they wanted was a better life.
After the First World War, Germany was decimated. Germany was completely demoralised and knew extreme poverty. Suddenly, in the early 1920s came a time of apparent prosperity but it was a prosperity based on borrowing. When by the end of the 1920s, Germany was struck by the crisis in Wall Street and loans were recalled by American banks and the country once again was faced by mass unemployment and extreme poverty. As this was happening came a group of people led by Adolf Hitler that promise them bread, jobs, families, a return to a life of normality after a life of deprivation and they believed in him because they needed to believe that a better life was possible.
Modern mass media specialise in insulting people and distorting history and reality. The Germans of the 1930s were people like you and I, trying to make ends meets, trying to enjoy life to the full. War and violence happened along the way but it wasn't something they were looking for. If they had known that there would be war and that much of their country was going to be destroyed and occupied they wouldn't have supported the party and the man leading such political party. They didn't vote for war and violence. They voted for a better life.
