Nazi? Moi?

Today I found out that I probably would have "missed my Jewish friends, but would have forgiven myself eventually" and that I am 74% brainwashable. Wow.
Kinda scary.
Take the "Would you have been a Nazi" test.

I took the test. Here are my results (not too surprising to me):
The Expatriate
Achtung! You are 30% brainwashworthy, 18% antitolerant, and 28% blindly patriotic
Congratulations! You are not susceptible to brainwashing, your values and cares extend beyond the borders of your own country, and your Blind Patriotism does not reach unhealthy levels. If you had been German in the 30s, you would've left the country.

One bad scenario -- as I hypothetically project you back in time -- is that you just wouldn't have cared one way or the other about Nazism. Maybe politics don't interest you enough. But the fact that you took this test means they probably do. I'm gonna give you the benefit of the doubt.

Did you know that many of the smartest Germans departed prior to the beginning of World War II, because they knew some evil shit was brewing? Brain Drain. Many of them were scientists. It is very possible you could have been one of them.

Conclusion: born and raised in Germany in the early 1930's, you would not have been a Nazi.

That test was kinda scary. I scored much like you, Kristi. Shocker.

I once worked with a woman whose husband was in the German army during the war. I was surprised by this (like, why would he do that?), but then she said that it was what you did for your country. You didn't think about if it was "right" in the big picture. You were called to fight and you did. Huh.

bah...I got the exact same thing as timotheos. I don't agree with the not caring one way or the other though...I'm thinkin I would have been scared and mad as hell.

PS...I talked to Greg Quale today...he said hello to you.
