How could anyone wish to scale Speer down to the size of a citizen? He wasn't just an architect but also war-minister und directly involved in the genocide and concentration camps. As a member of the Third Reich government he IS responsible.
That's what he is blamed for, and not for designing rectilinear buildings, as you described so nicely. In trial, he was clever enough to talk his way out of being sentenced to death by claiming the "ethics issue" he would talk and insist on to Hitler about.
I mean, as an architect he had been 'the right hand' of the dictator for years and therefore grew into his hegemonial politics as well. In the process of years they lost every human scale and ended up in designing this one monstrouos development, that fortunately has not been built, because war broke out. I think, going this far is got to add to the evaluation of him.
Now, what is that to do with any democratic business? Not much I think.

What? I just answered the question.
More to the point... I have no idea how what you are saying follows from what you quoted.

"blah blah blah". Yeah, Nazi's were bad. It's common knowledge. Now that we've acknowledged that can we get back on track? Or are you one of those who can't?

Actually it was a quick hack job of analyzin Nazi Architecture, but thanks for the compliment.
Now let's reread the question at hand...

I repeat, I have no idea what you are talking about.
I take that back. I have every idea of what you are talking about but no idea why.
I take that back. I have every idea of why you are talking about that. I have no inclination validate your off topic rant any further.
Though you inadvertently and rather illuminatingly answer my question:

Peter, could you quote the author(s) in the replies, please? Thanks!

No clue just what specific feature you want me to add. Don't thank me yet, I don't expect to change my posting style.

I'm talking about citing the authors of the threads' posts-- their sub- quotes within the bodies of your responses-- ie., Don, Michael, Me, Edgar, Ken... I understand that they're in a threaded context, but it is far more convenient to have them within the post rather than having to go up the thread to search for who said what. Besides, AFAIK, all apps I've used so far do it automatically.

Well it's your call, but it seems a win-win proposition.
Where've you been again, BTW? It's been about 10 days since. I missed you. Do you prefer stale threads? ;)

I've seen too many stupid fights start over "I didn't say that, why did you say I said that?" I chose to stop trying long ago.

When my options are "do something important, interesting and/or useful" and "read some wanker blather for the _nth_ time what he insists he saw in a video like I didn't read him the first n times..." usenet loses.

Of course. In any case, if you're going to blow some time here, let me know if there's anything I can do to make it more worthwhile.

"In general, there were two primary National Socialist styles of architecture"
Make that "subjects".
