(This is a posting by a banned member who presented his ideal vision of what the Allies should have done after WW2)

After WWII, the allies begin genetically engineering Germans to make them immune to nationalism. It's seen as a) a motivation to better understand the genetic code and b) a compromise with the Morgenthau Plan that will allow Germany to be prosperous while preventing another Hitler. The first phase is to examine the adult German population for signs of nationalism and to chemically castrate those who are seen as susceptible to tribalism, with the hopes that tribalist genes will phase out of the population within a couple of generations.

preventing another Hitler.

Says someone whose modest proposals seem to be directly copied from the Nazi playbook...

Nationalism isn't genetic.

That would make all of them nationalists.

The Germans were treated in an appalling manner after the Great War, and a few years later along came the Nazis to take advantage of that. Which was one of the reasons why the Western Allies tried to be more humane the next time.

And this makes you better than Hitler how, exactly? FFS, the allies just wanted to end the war, and it's not like we've had any trouble with Germany since then. Besides, the male population of Germany dropped drastically during the war, and after it was over the survivors had little desire to repeat what happened.

Considering how much of a problem tribalism/nationalism is, if this somehow worked, it would simply make them an actual "master race", due to being the only people rid of a nonsensical set of animalistic instincts which will probably cause our extinction one day. Not exactly what you were going for I bet?

Yet they seemed to do ok at prospering without bringing in another Hitler, without the fascist wet dream punishments. Almost like hate begets hate.
