I'm just a neutral-Nazi, since I think if I want to be Neo-Nazi, I will be untrusted by my buddies. I like Nazi and Der Fuhrer (Adolf Hitler) just for my future inspiration.When I'll be State Minister in my hometown one day, I'll inspired with his speech and his adventures, but I don't want his sad ending happen to me. If I want to use Nazi and Der Fuhrer in my artwork, I only make them in abstract (So nobody know it's about Nazi)
any one who knows me salutes me with the traditional raise of arm like in Sieg Heil no matter where we are & introduce me to others as our Nazi friend. this usually starts a small conversation about history.

sorry for sounding pathetic but I don't think that's a good thing. I am a german and seeing other countries hold this high like something really important just sicks me!! This time was the most awful time for our whole country history and it's disgusting. You know through something like that, germans like me are still called Nazi's... and that's so sickening... it's something which shouldn't have happened... he killed people who didn't do anything.. that's not something to look up to.
"He killed people who didn't do anything..." That kind of thing permeates history, whether people like to admit it or not. It's what wars and conquest are made of, empires, the countries we know of today would not exist if people didn't kill people who didn't do anything wrong. Is it fair? No. Is it pretty? Most certainly not. Is it life? Yes. If I could have it any other way, I would, but such are the politics which man himself has created.
With that said, other countries have done far worse, for longer periods of time, so there is nothing particularly worse about remembering the Third Reich, than there is about remembering, say, the USSR, or any history the Americans, British, and French have partaken in. While we appreciate your opinion, we don't much believe in its merit. Don't resent your history because others hold you accountable--it's those others who are to be resented, unless they have forgotten about their own transgressions. Was it not the allied countries, namely Britain and France, who enslaved and oppressed most of the world, and are pretty much responsible for the sorry state of affairs those once-colonized nations are in today? Did the US not do the same thing, and are they also not responsible for the horrendous genocide of an entire group of people, and the prolonged enslavement of another? Have they given either any reparations? I think not. Yet, if you were to ask them, they would tell you WWII was the most horrendous thing that ever happened. A case of historic amnesia, it seems, especially since it was all those "righteous" countries who closed their doors to the deported Jews due to their own prejudices, only to be the great hypocrites later on and try to "free" them. If I was a Holocaust survivor, I'd cry, "too little, too late!" and hate their guts for intervening only when it served their own interests, and not when I or my people needed it most. With that said, didn't the US put innocent Japanese immigrants in camps, including children and infants?...Ah, but how easily one forgets these things when one is on the winning side of history, and can write the history books, carefully selecting what gets drilled into the minds of the young, and what is best left "omitted." Adolf Hitler was right when he said that children were the future, as it was, the children would be easily conditioned and indoctrinated to support one thing blindly while demonizing another. What you and the rest witness is simply a mirroring of such thinking, so that, in essence, nothing at all has changed--the only thing different is the object being oversimplified and demonized, instead of the Jews, it's the Nazis, but the simplifications remain intact. Life is more complex than merely black and white, most often times, it is in varied shades of grey.
With that said, didn't Stalin and Mao kill way more people than Hitler? Their own people, too. However, at least neither Stalin nor Hitler ever claimed to be for human rights and liberty, etc. and were at least honest about their intentions, unlike those "democratic" hypocrites who only seem to uphold their ideals when it's convenient for them, and have no qualms about betraying the very things they claim to stand for at the drop of a hat if it means gaining some sort of profit.
As a final note, I don't look up to either Hitler or National Socialism, but I don't look down at them either. Why should I? The world is imperfect, and there are scarcely any countries/places which have gone, throughout Earth's long history, without shedding some innocent blood on their hands. Years after his defeat, Napoleon was received as a monster, some sort of barbaric anti-Christ whose legacy would be forever stained, etc. Nowadays, however, who remembers any of that? I suspect Hitler, and Stalin, will undergo the same fate, as will future "monsters." As generations pass, so the gravity of affairs diminish, until things which once held great magnitude, either positively or negatively, ultimately become merely the stuff of history books and the obsession of some kooky professor, and escape the direct attention of the collective forever.
