    Nuremberg Trials

    Yea, the logical reason it occured was because the government allowed it too, and that it wasen't looked down upon. Take canibalistic tribes in Africa for example, we may see eating humans as unexcusable, but for them it's just another day.

    Nuremberg Trials

    No instead slaves were breed, worked to death and starved daily, your right they aren't exactly the same but they do carry some similarities. Master would beat the crap out of slaves for fun or rape them if they felt like it, because they viewed them as guess what? Sub human, aka property...

    Nuremberg Trials

    Take the American South and the Civil war for example. Alot of the same things that the Germans did to the Jews, Americans did to the blacks. But once the Civil war was over we didnt go around punishing every cruel slave master did we?

    Nuremberg Trials

    Make no mistake, what they did was wrong, BUT the Nazi government lead them to believe Jews were sub human, aka animals, and don't we do the same thing to animals, do whatever we please with them?

    Abortion is murder

    Is this why I get such a hard time from people for being pro-life?

    Nuremberg Trials

    I agree with you that things can be turned around A=B so B=A and such, it's not why I made the thread though. Yes, the soldiers are to be held somewhat responsible for what they did, but not put to death or sentenced to life in prison. Maybe you could of gotten out of a group like the...

    Abortion is murder

    stop giving jallman a hard time about abortion being murder it is NOT because the definition of murder is an illegal act of killing. Abortion is killing an unborn child, not murdering it.

    Abortion is murder

    Just because I dont supply you with evidence that my statement is true doesn't make it false. Prove to me, that a fetus within a woman's body will not grow up to be a human, or a homo sapien a majority of the time.

    Nuremberg Trials

    The difference is between being a soldier and any other job is that you can be killed for not following orders. And while an arguement can be made that Hitler was only doing what the people wanted that is not what's on question here.

    Nuremberg Trials

    No what I was refering to was a psychological study performed here in the United States to see if it is possible for the same type of discrimination to happen here as in Germany. What they did was they had participants be "teacher" and an actor be a student. The teachers were instructed to...

    Nuremberg Trials

    But we aren't talking about a herd here, we are talking about soldiers, who's specific job is to do as they are told. If it was not this way it would fail its purpose to defend or attack because there would be no organization. I do think that some people were responsible, but those who just...

    YOUtopia, MYtopia: The Global Community is Everyone's Responsibility

    I love your currency idea. Also I agree with you about how people today think that any type of sole leadership is evil. But one needs to realize that the dividing of power also slows progress. So much more can be done if there is no one there to tell him not to, of course a good leader would...

    Nuremberg Trials

    Like you said, it's not that simple. These people were brainwashed into believe Jews to be sub human. And it's not inconcevable to see it happening here in America, I dont remember the name of the specific study that proved it but it included teachers shocking students with more and more...

    Nuremberg Trials

    I wanted to see what the general concencous was about these trials? Was it wrong to convict numerous lower ranking officers of crimes against humanity? I believe it was wrong for this reason: Life in the military is all about following orders, it is not uncommon for military branches to...
