Germany was under stresses for sure. None of the horrors were a part of a strategy to alleviate those stresses. They weren't even against political enemies.

In the CCCP, the horrors were political discipline, labor disputes, or simply stiffing the farmers so industry could ramp up faster. It was to a comprehensible end. The evil was in letting those needs override basic morality.

The kinds of insanity that Hitler had are not the kinds of insanity that exculpate evil; they are just the kinds that explain his evil.

Hitler was vegetarian, which earns him a few points


So, I'm evil only because I eat meat? Isn't meat a part of human natural diet somehow? Diet shouldn't have anything to do with good and evil (except for cannibals).
I would also like to mention something about communism...  --  you must admit the basic idea is really nice. "We'll share everything, there won't be rich and poor anymore..."
This idea actually never came into reality. Stalin simply never cared about people.

Ever think of the millions of tons of skin sloughed off in the history of man? Dont you think a good portion of that ends up in your food?

To be perfectly honest, I dont really think about that all that often. Although i do know that 70% of dust in the home is human skin (or hair)

and not even recently. The amount of water that flows though graves before reaching the ocean, or the waste products excreted by the body.

You ever heard of Chinese graveyard? Not me. It would be such a waste to let so much meat go underground. Where the body ends? I don't want to know.
No offense if someone is Chinese in here.

It's not cannibalism if some other entity has metabolized it in the mean time. Otherwise the word loses all meaning.

No mention of the infamous Jack the Ripper?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jack_the_Ripper

Not many murderers are so well remembered after a couple of centuries. Perhaps it's partly due to the "catchy" name and that the murders were never solved.

Don't forget the Japanese during WWII; the way they treated POWs or above all their Unit 731 in China: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Unit_731

"the Japanese" is probably not quite a proper description, though, since that would also include civilians living in mainland Japan. In pretty much every case of atrocities and crimes perpetrated by a state, the civilians have nothing to do with it.

All it takes for evil to triumph, is for good men to do nothing.

Very true. That's why powerful regimes try to keep the people ignorant. What's sad (and scary) is that people can be tricked into giving up power when danger is perceived. Case and point: the "Patriot Act". Then, as the regime gets more and more powerful, the people become less and less aware of what is happening around them as the regime spits out constant propaganda and suppresses free speech.

Sorry, I meant the japanese military, and even among them there were exceptions. Search, however, for the harsh training and brainwashing they received.
