    Doesn’t matter who, what, where, and why. No political inclinations, or anything like that. Just someone you admire or are interested in.

    I’ll start off with:

    Reinhard Heydrich. SS Obergruppenfuhrer, and Reich’s Protector of the German Protectorate of Bohemia and Moravia (Czechoslovakia), from 1941-1942.

    That’s exactly who I was going to say.

    I suggest sir that yourself and `Himmler’s evil genius’ are just
    a pair of shit stirring Kuntz. :lol:

    No.

    I think Heydrich’s policy of ‘whip and sugar’, really worked and got results.

    Like he said, for those who didn’t wish to comply, “There’s plenty of room in the East….”

    A real easy policy to maintain under a military dictatorship. :twisted:

    Maybe. But then again, providing the population with better health care, and a better level of care and benefits, and rewards of good pay, food, and even holidays for the workers, will always reap the rewards.

    After that, you just have to remove all the undesirables, or the ‘Untermenschen’, in order to create a successful, and thriving state.

    I feel that the same would definitely work here, if implemented.

    Untermenshen means `subhuman’ when referring to Jews.

    Heydrich was one of the main architects of the Holocaust during the first years of the war, answering only to, and taking orders only from Hitler and Himmler in all matters that pertained to the deportation, imprisonment, and extermination of Jews.

    Yeah, he sounds like great guy! :o

    Vat, my only conclusion is that you need therapy.

    Er, no, you are WRONG. ‘Untermenschen’ does NOT specifically refer to Jews, or anybody in particular.

    And by the way, the other quote you quoted did NOT come from me.

    Untermenschen is a reference to people deemed as ‘second-class’, or ‘sub-human’ even. Not ONE specific race, or Jews, as you stated.

    Reinhard Heydrich apparently was a great guy. A great sportsman, he was a wonderful fencer, a great musician on the violin and piano, and he was also a very good pilot. He had first class organisational skills, and was often at the forefront of Third Reich conferences.
    Don’t buy into the theory that he orchastrated the murder of the Jews. That was ADOLF EICHMANN. Reinhard Heydrich was merely a career soldier who, because he was such a good administrator and also good at organising things, was put in acting charge of Bohemia-Moravia (Czechoslovakia), before he was assassinated in 1942.

    So this all round good egg got assassinated because the good guys get misunderstood then.

    The term `Undermenschen’ when used by the Nazis during WWII then didn’t mean the Jewish Community is what you are saying.

    So a little bit of `Ethical Cleansing’ appeals to you then? :x

    The other quote is an extract from wikipedia and was in no way
    meant to imply that it was from you; my apologies for that sir.

    Anyway I don’t think you should really be taking this thing any further on this or any other forum as people can take this all the wrong way.

    In other words `LEAVE IT SON. IT’S NOT WORTH IT!’ ;)

    Stalin?

    Communism is cool. Love the old Eastern Blok. The architecture, and the way the cities are laid out.

    Go to any of these cities, Prague, Berlin, Bucharest, Moscow, etc and they all have EXCELLENT transport networks, including Metro systems, and what’s more, the places are SPOTLESS.

    Honest to god, they get slagged off, but they had some positive effects as well.

    FACT: Skem Newtown was modelled on a place called Nowa Huta, just East of Krakow, in Poland. Yes it was. The estates, with their own shops, pubs, schools……all originated from the Soviet Socialist-Realist blueprint.
