  • How was it that Hitler and the Nazis were in power for so many years committing Jewish genocide and were not captured in the first place?

    I've read articles and books on how Hitler came to power with his Nazi party in the early 1930s - if he had plans then to start a World War and commit Jewish genocide, wouldn't the United Nations - or at least America - addressed it earlier to prevent it from happening? I mean, they could have had other... show more
    I've read articles and books on how Hitler came to power with his Nazi party in the early 1930s - if he had plans then to start a World War and commit Jewish genocide, wouldn't the United Nations - or at least America - addressed it earlier to prevent it from happening? I mean, they could have had other country's official to meet with Hitler, and if mass murder was on Hitler's mind, capture him instead of waiting into the middle of a World War?

  • How do I dumb down my writing style?

    I posted a story for critique in a writer's workshop and was told that I could write better than any of them could read. They said they doubted any of them could ever write as well as I could, and they found the writing too complex. That was just my regular writing style. How can I dumb it down so I can be... show more

  • How was America more free in the past?

    Best answer: America was never free. It is true for a period after WW2 before the 80s, poor and middle class white men had more financial freedom, because they were paid more (comparatively) than they are now.

  • Who was a better president Bill Clinton or Donald J. Trump?

    Best answer: Bill Clinton = one of the best presidents of all time. Took over the White House with more than 7% unemployment and ended his presidency with less than 5% unemployment, AND a budget surplus (after he raised taxes on the rich). There was peace during his presidency, and he helped ban assault weapons (few mass... show more
    Best answer: Bill Clinton = one of the best presidents of all time. Took over the White House with more than 7% unemployment and ended his presidency with less than 5% unemployment, AND a budget surplus (after he raised taxes on the rich). There was peace during his presidency, and he helped ban assault weapons (few mass shootings or school shootings). He was so successful that the GOP got jealous and tried to remove him from office because he made one white lie about whether he had sex with Monica Lewinsky.

    Donald J. Trump = the absolute worst president of all time. A criminal, a money launderer for Russians, a racist, liar, a friend and puppet of Russia, and an enemy of NATO. Cut taxes on the rich and now we have a trillion dollar deficit a year. Lots of school shootings and mass shootings. Hired John Bolton, a war monger who helped got us into the illegal war with Iraq under George W (a president who is just as bad as Trump)

  • Is this true?? History pleaseeee help?

    I've always been told that Christopher Columbus thought he had arrived in India when he had really arrived in the US. Naturally, he called the Native people there, Indians. Obviously nowadays, we know that he did not arrive in India, and that Native Americans have nothing to do with Indians. But my history... show more
    I've always been told that Christopher Columbus thought he had arrived in India when he had really arrived in the US. Naturally, he called the Native people there, Indians. Obviously nowadays, we know that he did not arrive in India, and that Native Americans have nothing to do with Indians. But my history teacher told me today (without any sources to back it up) that India was known as "Hindustan" to foreigners back in 1492, and that the people inside Hindustan there called their country Barat. They went on to say that Christopher Columbus called the Native Americans "a people in God", which in Italian translates to "un popolo in Dio". The last two words put together is "Indios" and is pronounced like such. As a catchphrase he called them "Indios" which in English translates to "Indians", and that's really why Natives are called Indians. Is this true, and is there any evidence to back this up? Because I'd much rather believe that the European colonizers weren't dumb enough to keep calling them Indians for no reason, because that just creates confusion and has for the past couple centuries.

    Best answer: Chamberlain never wanted war - neither did Hitler. And it was Roosevelt who created the problems that led to war. The issues between Germany and Poland were relatively minor and based on Germany gaining access to provide support and protection to Danzig and East Prussia. Up until Britain involved themselves in the issue, Germany and Poland were actively negotiating.

    Chamberlain was called an appeaser because he preferred to use negotiation to fix problems rather than resort to war. The reason he had a sudden change of heart was that after he supported the Munich Agreement in Germany's favor, Roosevelt threatened to withdraw all support to Britain unless he changed his mind.

    Thus, it was because of pressure from the United States that he reversed his stance in the Munich Agreement and began working against Hitler. This was also the reason that he gave Poland false assurances to come to their aid in the event of an attack by Hitler so that Poland would end negotiations with Hitler altogether - ensuring that it would escalate into an attack.

    Chamberlain may have declared war on Germany, but he was still against using conflicts to settle international disputes. It took until a war-obsessed Winston Churchill to take over as PM 8 months later for the war to actually commence.

    Stalin's part in the whole thing was that they were also wanting to start a war with Germany - to spread Communism into Europe. But he couldn't do it alone - he needed Britain's help. And since Britain couldn't declare war before Germany attacked Poland, Stalin had to wait. It was Hitler who had to make the first move.

    Germany never intended to invade Russia - its role was a position of defense. Hitler just wanted to keep Communism out of Germany (which was the door to the rest of Europe). Operation Barbarossa was a preemptive attack (defense). Hitler found out Russia was building up its forces to attack Germany and when he found out what was going on, he attacked first.

    Best answer: They didn't view themselves as Racist, they thought that they were cleansing the American population from mixing with the black people, who were thought to be unsavoury types at the time. Their actions were deplorable, completely unethical and unquestionably racist. They would target young black people and would make public spectacles of their executions- usually by lynching- and would hurl slurs and racist language towards black people in the street. They would put signs up- No Blacks, no dogs, no Mexicans. They forced the black people to live in ghettos or slum areas and would terrorise them by dressing up in ghostly white robes to remember confederate soldiers and would burn crosses outside their homes, chrches and schools. is that Racist enough for you?
