Hitler often told about new Rome to be built, Americans often talk "USA - new Rome"... Rome is western dream, but Rome needs slaves, therefore it needs aggressive wars... Afganistan, Libya, Iraq ...
Hitler is must the shame of the western... I don't think, and, I don't hope, that the western mentality can creat people like that!...
Please, excuse my poor English...!
And Stalin is a product of Russian mentality. If you want to match killings, I think Josef Stalin wins, hands down.
Vox clamanto in deserto.
“There is no social entity with a good that undergoes some sacrifice for its own good. There are only individual people, different individual people, with their own individual lives. Using one of these people for the benefit of others, uses him and benefits the others. Nothing more.” Robert Nozick
As a matter of fact Nazism is a product not of mentalities of some concrete nations,it is a natural product of capitalism.Nazism is based on the capitalist principle of competition and of the suppression of the weakers.While liberalism recognises this principle at the level of individuals,Nazism outputs it to the level of nations.I fact fascism is quasi-liberalism.
CAPITALISM DELENDA EST.
All forms of collectivism lead logically and inevitably to tyranny, and Friedrich Hayek used the Soviet Union and Nazi Germany as examples of countries which had gone down "the road to serfdom" and reached tyranny. Hayek argued that within a centrally planned economic system, the distribution and allocation of all resources and goods would devolve onto a small group, which would be incapable of processing all the information pertinent to the appropriate distribution of the resources and goods at the central planners' disposal.
http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/commandinghe...s_serfdom.htmlThe important point is that, if we take the people who’s views influence developments, they are now in this country in some measure all socialists. It is no longer fashionable to emphasize that “we are all socialists now”, this is so merely because the fact is too obvious. Scarcely anybody doubts that we must continue to move towards socialism. The successful politician owes his power to the fact that he moves within the accepted framework of thought, that he thinks and talks conventionally. It would be almost a contradiction in terms for a politician to be a leader in the field of ideas. His task in a democracy is to find out what the opinions held by the largest number are, not to give currency to new opinions which may become the majority view in some distant future. Economic control is not merely control of a sector of human life which can be separated from the rest; it is the control of the means for all our ends.
I'm beginning to think that you don't find happiness from living your life looking ahead or back..that you find it when you look around. http://www.politicalforum.com/groups/taylor-swift-13/
Your statement thrice wrong.
First. Any form of collectivism is a society.
Second.Fridrih Hayek is a vulgar writer, it is seen in your example.
Third. Globalization is - the way the destruction of national heritage,the source of multiculturalism, of paranoia, and slavery (China) and that is the essence of your Friedrich Hayek
What purpose other than "everything Western is sooo evil and everything Eastern (or shall we say Russian/Soviet) is sooo honourable and human" does the OP have?
Of course others never fought wars in, let's say, Afghanistan, Georgia, Chechnia. But even if, I bet they weren't "aggressive."

IMHO Hitler was a product of the unfair postwar world system. After WWI the Entente created pretty hard conditions for Germany. And hitler’s regime was just a result of German revanchist sentiments.
Also western democracies tried to cause a clash between fascist Germany and USSR . They’d been improved adolf’s actions. Take the Munich agreement. In fact French and UK gave him permission to annex Sudetenland. I suppose it was really the beginning of World War II.
