Default Poll: Germans Blame Poverty, Hunger on Capitalism

They just can't shake their Commie past

One in Three Germans Say Capitalism to Blame for Poverty, Hunger

Quote:
Nearly a third of Germans believe that capitalism is the cause of poverty and hunger and a majority think true democracy is not possible under that economic system, according to a survey published on Tuesday by the Emnid polling institute for Berlin's Free University.

The poll of 1,400 people found that 59 percent of Germans in the formerly communist east consider communist and socialist ideals a good idea for society. In western Germany, 37 percent said they considered communist and socialist ideals to be good.

The radical Left party in Germany remains strong in the formerly communist East, a quarter century after the Berlin Wall fell, paving the way for German unification in 1990.

The survey found that more than 60 percent of Germans believe there is no genuine democracy in their country because industry has too much political influence and that the voice of the voters plays only a subordinate role.

Don't you know that Hitler was protecting the German people from the evil, communist-sympathizing Jews?

Well, the Jews did INSIST on a king. Beggars can't be choosers, or so they say.

Hitler was a socialist. How did that work out for Germany? Those that refuse to learn from history are doomed to repeat it.
