    Hate to break it to you BUT every Germany Company that existed in the 30's and early 40's " was in bed" with the Nazis. Hitler did not seize the Companies but he DID order them as to what they would build for Greater Germany.

    Yes, among many others.

    The Krupt scion was found guilty of exploting slave labor at Nueremberg.

    Krupt industries is but one example of the overwhelming evidence that Hitler's Germany was not a socialist government.

    Krupt industries was never nationalized, and the owers of that corporation continued to wortk with and be paid for their industrial output by the NAZIs.

    Krupp was also in bed with the Kaiser too. They're an arms manufacturer who makes heavy guns and artillery among other heavy machinery. They've done so for their nation and the highest bidder since their founding.

    psst. BMW was in league with the nazis!

    See how stupid that sounds? But they had built vehicles, aircraft and autos for the nazis.

    Really? Explain to me what the difference is between these two statements:

    "You will tell your company manufacture what the state wants you to, or you will be sent to a 'labor camp'.

    "Your company is now state property and NOW you will manufacture what we tell you or you will be sent to the gulag."

    Only difference I see is that the title remains in your hands officially, till such time as you fail to obey. The other one, they get rid of the pretense of ownership and just make you a slave of the state like everyone else, they just play fewer semantic games.
