THE MYTHOS OF NAZI GENERAL PLAN OST
All general staffs develop war plans. The war plan to use asymmetric warfare against ukraine was produced somewhere between 2010 and 2012. Every single general staff in the world has hundreds of such plans. They vary from the trivial, to the devious, to the genocidal. That is what general staffs do. Yet these plans are rarely if ever used. The american Plan Red was to conquer canada so that the british couldn’t for example (I know this because they bought my great-grandparents farm to use as an airport in case they needed to put the plan into action. The plans that are currently in the russian (and soviet) archives are horrific, and include nuclear saturation of the west, and rapid movement of artillery and armor through that territory. There are plans to take finland, to take sweden, to defend from china, to take back constantinople. These are not likely to happen, but they are the research and development plans that all general staffs occupy their time with so that they are NEVER in a position of lacking a plan for any possible contingency.
Generalplan Ost existed in six only in preliminary versions from January 1940 to the last one dated 23. Dec. 1942 named “Generalsiedlungsplan”.
The plan was subject to a continuous ongoing development, and no version of it was ever approved.
Further development of the plan was abandoned in 1943.
The 2′nd, 3′rd and 4′th versions of the plan have never been found. Their existence and content is only known from other secondary documentary references.
In other words, this is more propaganda. As far as I know the general solution was to resettle people in order to prevent communist expansion from the soviets into european spaces where it could threaten germans.
Fascism was a reaction to soviet communism. That’s all.
Just as russians today want to defend their ‘resettled’ people in eastern europe, (despite the fact that they are despised in every country), the germans wanted to defend their settled peoples, because they had been incrementally civilizing europe through commerce since the beginning of the Hansa league.
I never believe anyone’s history. I look at the economics, and the demographics, and search for incentives. People just make excuses to justify seizure of opportunities. And history is nothing but such excuses.
The only measure of a people is trust and the technical, and economic velocity that results from it.
The measure of any philosophy or ideology is the long term condition of those who practice it.
