The chances that a woman will get raped are relatively low. The chances that a continent will get colonized are very close to one. That would be a very bad argument to make. Sorry

"Listen, LionGoat, people like you need to get a clue. Nazi's were socialists, that's what "Nazi" stands for, "National Socialist.""MP,Nazis were not socialist. Any country can stick "Republic" or some other term in the name of their party, and not be what they claim. For crying out loud, the stupid western media, kept refering to Saddam as president!!!Nazis were Fascist. Fascist means bundle. It is derived from the Latin word: fascis : bundle, burden.

QuoteOriginally posted by: Adolf1. We demand the union of all Germany in a Greater Germany on the basis of the right of national self-determination.2. We demand equality of rights for the German people in its dealings with other nations, and the revocation of the peace treaties of Versailles and Saint-Germain.3. We demand land and territory (colonies) to feed our people and to settle our surplus population.4. Only members of the nation may be citizens of the State. Only those of German blood, whatever be their creed, may be members of the nation. Accordingly, no Jew may be a member of the nation.5. Non-citizens may live in Germany only as guests and must be subject to laws for aliens.6. The right to vote on the State's government and legislation shall be enjoyed by the citizens of the State alone. We demand therefore that all official appointments, of whatever kind, whether in the Reich, in the states or in the smaller localities, shall be held by none but citizens.7. We demand that the State shall make it its primary duty to provide a livelihood for its citizens. If it should prove impossible to feed the entire population, foreign nationals (non-citizens) must be deported from the Reich. 8. All non-German immigration must be prevented. We demand that all non-Germans who entered Germany after 2 August 1914 shall be required to leave the Reich forthwith. 9. All citizens shall have equal rights and duties. 10. It must be the first duty of every citizen to perform physical or mental work. The activities of the individual must not clash with the general interest, but must proceed within the framework of the community and be for the general good.We demand therefore: 11. The abolition of incomes unearned by work. The breaking of the slavery of interest 12. In view of the enormous sacrifices of life and property demanded of a nation by any war, personal enrichment from war must be regarded as a crime against the nation. We demand therefore the ruthless confiscation of all war profits.13. We demand the nationalization of all businesses which have been formed into corporations (trusts). 14. We demand profit-sharing in large industrial enterprises. 15. We demand the extensive development of insurance for old age. 16. We demand the creation and maintenance of a healthy middle class, the immediate communalizing of big department stores, and their lease at a cheap rate to small traders, and that the utmost consideration shall be shown to all small traders in the placing of State and municiple orders.17. We demand a land reform suitable to our national requirements, the passing of a law for the expropriation of land for communal purposes without compensation; the abolition of ground rent, and the prohibition of all speculation in land. * 18. We demand the ruthless prosecution of those whose activities are injurious to the common interest. Common criminals, usurers, profiteers, etc., must be punished with death, whatever their creed or race. 19. We demand that Roman Law, which serves a materialistic world order, be replaced by a German common law. 20. The State must consider a thorough reconstruction of our national system of education (with the aim of opening up to every able and hard-working German the possibility of higher education and of thus obtaining advancement). The curricula of all educational establishments must be brought into line with the requirements of practical life. The aim of the school must be to give the pupil, beginning with the first sign of intelligence, a grasp of the nation of the State (through the study of civic affairs). We demand the education of gifted children of poor parents, whatever their class or occupation, at the expense of the State. 21. The State must ensure that the nation's health standards are raised by protecting mothers and infants, by prohibiting child labor, by promoting physical strength through legislation providing for compulsory gymnastics and sports, and by the extensive support of clubs engaged in the physical training of youth.22. We demand the abolition of the mercenary army and the foundation of a people's army.23. We demand legal warfare on deliberate political mendacity and its dissemination in the press. To facilitate the creation of a German national press we demand: (a) that all editors of, and contributors to newspapers appearing in the German language must be members of the nation; (b) that no non-German newspapers may appear without the express permission of the State. They must not be printed in the German language; (c) that non-Germans shall be prohibited by law from participating financially in or influencing German newspapers, and that the penalty for contravening such a law shall be the suppression of any such newspaper, and the immediate deportation of the non-Germans involved. The publishing of papers which are not conducive to the national welfare must be forbidden. We demand the legal prosecution of all those tendencies in art and literature which corrupt our national life, and the suppression of cultural events which violate this demand.24. We demand freedom for all religious denominations in the State, provided they do not threaten its existence not offend the moral feelings of the German race. The Party, as such, stands for positive Christianity, but does not commit itself to any particular denomination. It combats the Jewish-materialistic spirit within and without us, and is convinced that our nation can achieve permanent health only from within on the basis of the principle: The common interest before self-interest.25. To put the whole of this programme into effect, we demand the creation of a strong central state power for the Reich; the unconditional authority of the political central Parliament over the entire Reich and its organizations; and the formation of Corporations based on estate and occupation for the purpose of carrying out the general legislation passed by the Reich in the various German states.

Mobpscho: 8. All non-German immigration must be prevented. We demand that all non-Germans who entered Germany after 2 August 1914 shall be required to leave the Reich forthwith. Yesterday Israel started to bring in laws to stop mixed marriages.S.Africa no longer has such laws, and for well known reason we "persuaded" Germany to get rid of them in the 1940s.Apparently these are to stop "non-Jewish" immigration.I sometimes wonder if there are well funded scholars in Israel seeking out the dumbest and nastiest bits of the Nazis, and seeing how they may be implemented in Israeli law.

Quote Yesterday Israel started to bring in laws to stop mixed marriages. Are you serious? Where did you read that?Incidentally, I personally believe that mixed marriages are probably the only glimmer of hope in the Arab/Israeli mess.

"Incidentally, I personally believe that mixed marriages are probably the only glimmer of hope in the Arab/Israeli mess. "This is a (or used to be) a widely held view about the Northern Ireland thing. i.e. that the problem would eventually go away as Protestants and Catholics inter-married. Unfortunately this hasn't happened on sufficient scale in NI to change anything for the better.The only solution I can see to the Northern Ireland problem is if both the UK and Ireland give up sovereignty entirely to the EU. I don't just mean sovereignty over NI, I mean entirely. In the event that we have a United States of Europe, no-one will give a damn any more about which sect of Christianity lays claim to Northern Ireland. (Incidentally, this is one of only a very small number of good things that I can think of about the EU.)My question, bizarre as it seems, is whether EU broadening will eventually reach Palestine/Israel, and subsume the whole mess into the US of E?

they didn't pass a law to stop mixed marriages, they passed a law that says if a citizen marries a palistinian, the palistinian doesn;t get citizenship. it's a very sad unfortunate thing. it's to prevent the 1.2 million arab isrealis from marrying 1.2 million palistinians and then all of a sudden the arab population of isreal goes from 1.2 out of 6.7, to 2.4 out of 7.9 (with those 2.4 having somehting liek triple the brithrate of the jews as well).
