Whats that germany, you lost the war. Well having our freedom isn't good enough, we want some money too. Money that won't go to the families of the soldier that died or anything. We just need some money because of all the buildings and tanks that we lost. I hate capitalism so much.

This is pretty cool, considering I'm learning about the origins of WWI in History class.

Nearly 100yrs and finally it's paid off.

I meant my post more as a commentary on how cruel the others were to put such a large payment in order, i should have made it more noticeable.
People in the pit take my post way too seriously.

More than anything, I think this shows how ridiculous the reparations demanded were.

Quote by guitarhero_764
If I was Germany I would've refused to pay it.
I'm pretty sure that Hitler refusing to pay, combined with the large amount of munitions built and men trained, was what moved toward WWII. The fact that Germany had to pay such a large debt, and the effect such a debt caused on the German economy, was part of the reason Hitler got elected. Once Hitler was elected, he immediately began moving towards annexing other countries, which eventually led to the German/Russian split of Poland and the beginning of WWII.

No. What led to WWII was Hitler invading every country around him. No one was doing a damn thing about Germany not paying its debts.

Hitler...
Got some things right...

As someone who's exiled from Cuba, I can tell you first hand that lack of a capitalism, lack of privately owned industry, and lack of private profit sucks ass.

You know what happens in my home country when you start to make decent money? Castro's dogs come knocking at your door telling you to stop making money or you're going to be arrested.

How, exactly? He did nothing to put Germany on the right track, but rather ended up having it destroyed further in WWII, put further in debt, and then stuck in the middle of the Cold War.

None of those things have anything to do with communism or socialism.

I said some things. He was right in stopping the reparations payments.

Yes. They do. The very definition of communism is that everyone is equal and by extension everyone has the same amount of money. In socialism everything is commonly owned. At the extremes if you start making more money than everyone else you either get told to stop or the government swoops in and takes it away. This happened in the Soviet Union and it's happening in my home country now along with several other South American nations.

Don't talk about stuff like you know when you've never even experienced the real thing. Communism sounds nice and Utopian. Yeah, we thought so too in the 50s to get rid of Batista. Boy did that bite everyone in the ass. Especially the 20,000 innocent men and boys that were executed for not agreeing with the revolution and new government.

There was a "similar" story 3 or 4 years ago where Britain had just finished paying off their debt to the US for all the weapons and vehicles the US sold them during WWII.

Must have been a lot of rifles and bombers :\
