Is it better?
June 14, 2016 8:56pm CST
Just finished watching the Man In the High Castle. Apparently the Japanese trade minister was able to travel to an alternate universe by meditating at the heart of Chicago. Now I did some digging on the internet and I found out that the book performs some 4th wall break and inception like things. Being a fan of history I have observed the rise and fall of great empires and the contributions they have in the world today. It made me ask the question , " If the Axis powers did win the war, would the world be a better place?" I mean you can see from the show and in actual history that Germany in WW2 time was at the front runner in technology and our world would be far more advanced today if they didn't lost ( They invented the first jet engine in WW2 it was a prototype and was not mass produced). Most of modern technology today would not have been possible if America,UK and Russia did not steal the blueprints and scientist of the Germany. Still do you think the world would be better place? Not all ideas last and eventually the concept of Nazism would be replaced just as today'd idea of democracy is actually a farce and a cover for what is known as plutocracy. I'm rambling but this thought occurred to me :) Please share your opinions :)

Yes you did, but then again from an objective point of view. You would've lost if not for the Russians who were the meatshields of the war and America who gave you supplies and mass produced the technology you gave them. But still you Brits were tough and unrelenting. It was probably your'e stubbornness which prolonged the war leading to the Germans demise. Just like good ol Churchill :)

@Dramista Respectively you were asking for opinions, which I gave mine. Read this link though, as you may well find that the Russians had depleted most of their weapons and all the Allies of the British wanted the Germans eliminated in WW2.
Explore the powerful but often strained alliance between the countries that stood against the Axis powers.

@crystalvisions I am grateful for your opinion and I meant no disrespect if it caused you any :) I've red your link and I find no errors in my previous comment. I simply stated that Britain would've lost the war without russian intervention and american support. Simply because the germans had better land troops and land tactics(blitzkrieg). The germans did have many blunders but you have to admit that the biggest reason for those blunders was because they were fighting on 3 fronts. The americans and british on the north and west and south ( British Colonies) and The russians on the east. Still the biggest reason of their lost was their depleting oil reserves.
