Horrible Results (D, not an apologist for purging black people from the voter rolls or of 5-4 SCOTUS decisions to subvert democracy).

Environmental conflict between Wyoming and the Federal government goes back over a century. In 1950, Wyoming one a special judgment that thwarts executive power to create national monuments in the state.

This has been going on since the days of Yellowstone.

Yeah, because this is just like that. Don't try to excuse the inexcusable.

Germany; they at least realized that what they did was wrong. Plus they probably wouldn't murder me for having a political view opposed to their previous incarnation as a society.

Alcohol, smoking weed, smoking cigarettes, "Harder Drugs" (cocaine, although I wouldn't consider it a "hard" drug per se), Psychedelics (DXM), and junk food of course.

Trigger Warning: Drunk.

I'm sorry but the responses to my post boxed me in to putting this frankly:

Western people as of today have been the most accepting and generous ethnic group of people in the history of humanity. How do you think East Asians think of black people? How about Indians or Arabs? How many asylum seekers do you think Japan will accept?

Don't get me wrong we have had our share of terrible things done throughout history. But the Enlightenment mentality in European civilization is responsible for literally every social advancement that makes the modern age. The Muslims are probably the only civilization that had a shot of filling this role in the Middle Ages, but that window closed.

Basically every "good/free" country in the world is that way because they adopted the "Western" way of doing things.

Yeah, sh**tty things happened, as they always do. Do you think things would be better if the black people conquered Europe and did the same thing? The fact of the matter is the technologically superior civilization always absorbed or outright annihilated the lesser civilization. That's how history worked. American black people are literally the most well off subsection of their ethnicity on Earth. Don't get me wrong they had to fight against the ignorance of the White majority back then to make it happen, but it did. How do you think the black civil disobedience of a former slave population would've gone down in China? How about India? They would make the KKK look like saints, don't lie to yourself and pretend otherwise.  

There is plenty of work to be done in the name of ethnic equality, but this mentality pisses me off. She has the gall to whine about how "white people" are the problem when in reality they are the reason she has anything she does today. Odds are she would just be some random subsistence farm girl, probably raped multiple times by randoms had it not been for these white people she hates so much.

There, I said it.

It really saddens me to see these "SJW" types become increasingly influential on the left. They're more of a raving lynch mob then anything else.
136  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Boston University professor: White Males a "problem population" on: May 08, 2015, 08:50:55 pm
She would already be fired if she was white and said that about black people.

The culture on College Campuses, especially liberal arts Universities, has become increasingly toxic because of these types.

She doesn't realize it's "because of whitey" that she has electricity, air conditioning, computers and a car.

there's a difference between "disagreeable things/unpopular speech/whatever" and holocaust denial

Not there isn't. It's literally the exact same thing. Holocaust Denial is literally a textbook example of unpopular disagreeable speech. Don't get me wrong it's probably as wrong as you can be about 20th Century history but you shouldn't be in legal trouble for saying it.

No, mutatis mutandis, personalities are irrelevant.  The Nazis would have had to go to war eventually.

Patently false.

Yeah, how dare people practice forgiveness, especially Christians.

You wouldn't be saying that if Mr. Clemmons was white.

Anyone voting Hitler just doesn't know Stalin did to his own country. I voted both were equally bad.

Because Hitler lost the war. Hitler's intent would've dwarfed anything Stalin did.

The question is, would Goering manage to hold power. He was a drug addict, and in periods of addiction he was insufficiently cut-throat and active.

IIRC he wasn't too bad off until later in the war after he lost credibility in the Battle of Britain.

It is also hard to see Himmler or Goebbels, or the others having the same sense of loyalty to Goering as they had to Hitler. There would have been an inevitable period of "collective leadership" - and it is not clear who would emerge as the leader by, say, 1941. And, until that would be resolved, hard to see a major war.

The thing is in 1938 the SS is a shadow of what it was in 1943/44, or even 1941. Their power is very limited and massively eclipsed by the Army. In 1938 it is not within the capacity of the SS to seize power for the hardliners. Also as for Gobbles although he was a key part of the regime he didn't really wield too much personal power or influence IIRC. He's more of a card then a player if you will.

Are you sure this isn't fake?

Yes, absolutely. There are people in real life who think like this.

It's doubtful that the Nazis would have stopped with the Sudetenland. The hyperbolic description of Bohemia and Moravia as a dagger embedded in the bowels of Germany would still be made, and taking full control of that dagger would certainly be done.

This is an assumption, although my idea is also an assumption. I say Goering was much more realpolitik and economically minded then Hitler and would see the value in stopping there and reproaching with the West to prevent a total economic collapse.

Even if the Nazis had been content with just the Sudetenland, it's doubtful that Poland would agree to surrender their rights in Danzig or allow an corridor separating Pomerania from the rest of Poland.

Even in exchange for Germany guaranteeing their independence and forming a defensive alliance against the Soviets? The UK and France have literally nothing to offer in regard to Poland's security. The Poles are well aware of this. Also it's possible Goering doesn't bother to lay claim on Danzig or the corridor anyways. Danzig is of very limited value anyways and the Poles can likely be convinced to agree to the extra-territorial rail corridor.

The reason Poland didn't worry about Germany until a couple years before the war is that the German military was a pathetic force until Hitler began rearmament.

Times have changed and the Poles know this. They either need to side with Germany or the Soviets, and Germany is the only serious option of these two.

Had Poland stood with Czechslovakia in 1938, it's likely they would have defeated Germany had the Nazis made good their threat of invasion, even without Franco-British assistance.

That's all fine and good, except the Poles were too busy collaborating with Germany to dismember Czechoslovakia to begin with. A fact that is often forgotten.

Avoiding World War II as we know it requires the Nazis to take actions it is implausible they would take.  They were trapped by their ideology.  Only if an internal struggle prevents them from going any further after the Anschluss is it avoided, but even then that most likely only delays until 1940 the outbreak of war.

It's not that simple. Goering is much, much less radical then Hitler/Himmler/Gobbles. Goering's political base will be the military and industrialists, not the SS or the Nazi Party. He will be concerned first and foremost with his personal power and maintaining the German State.

Hitler easily. The thing people forget is that the only reason Stalin technically has a higher body count is because Hitler lost the war. Hitler's ambitions would've put anything Stalin did to shame and then some.
