    I'm interested to see where this thread will go.

    How about not a great deal of similarity at all. How about that's a really dumb comparison to make at all. The thread is Godwin'd before it even starts.

    I could go on all day. For just one example, both have government funded roads. Wow!

    It would be more accurate to say it started with a Godwin.

    I kid you not that those sorts of dumb associations are important to the libertarian cause, there's libertarians who use the superficial reading of The Communist Manifesto's goals, ie universal schools and education, to insist that the US is a communist regime!!

    Its frigging nuts, just lately I read a blog post by a libertarian, it was well constructed and didnt read like someone who was straining to appear like an intellectual or thinker (and there are plenty of them in all political circles but there's a rash of them among younger libertarians) but they where seriously posting and reflecting on the writings of some nutter from victorian england arguing that public sewage works and public sanitation where creeping tyranny!!

    I've actually got to the point where I dont think its politics or discussion any longer, its people fabricating threats and hostiles themselves, like governments once did, to compensate for the fact nothing is happening and they've got an objectively dull life.

    Lark, I think Magic was joking.

    [YOUTUBE="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i1s4fj-5zlk"]Glenn Beck has Nazi Tourettes[/YOUTUBE]

    There are so many ways I could answer to the OP, some more serious than others. But something tells me, a German telling a bunch of Americans on an American dominated forum about the differences and similarities between their country and Nazi Germany might not be appreciated.

    Anyway, nazi comparisons should be used like nitroclycerine - with great care and in a medical dosis or you'll start blowing up things

    I know that but I'm sure he's encountered that sort of reasoning, as have I and that's why I posted.

    Funnily enough, I have only heard that kind of reasoning from Americans (and only from extreme libertarian nutjobs on the internet or in other media), never from other Germans (who tend to know what Nazi Germany really was)

    That's who I was talking about, while there's been some libertarianism making inroads into the UK, its mainly a US trend. The comparisons between their society and both nazi germany or communism.

    Well for starters: in America there are too many opinions, in Nazi Germany there was only one opinion .

    And this forum isnt american dominated, look at my post count

    Well in both countries Germans make up the largest ethnic group. Does that count?

    Oh yeah I almost forgot:

    Yes prior to 1942, the proper salute to the American flag was Bellamy Salute, which is excactly the same as the Fascist salute.
