The East German workers who fell under the wheels of the fascist juggernaut in 1933 did not emerge from totalitarian rule for 56 years!

at a whole, a great article. but i stumbled over the sentence above. i dont think, that it intended to say, that living under fascism and later in german democratic republic was the same, but it could be read/understood that way.

and as we all know, the stalinists in eastberlin/GDR, however cruel, did at least not run concentration camps with millions of death, and didnt start a world war.

the theory of totalitarism was extensively used in germany (and probably not only there) to justify capitalism &imperialism and downplay the singularity of german fascism.
