I'd be dead.

I wouldn't have been born.

My country would probably still be under the control of the germans but I want to believe I would belong to a group of rebels.

I guess this is the truth for most of us.

Probably not all that much different. Maybe a little better economically.

Oddly, the Middle East would probably be a bit more stable. :lol:

The Axis empire would have collapsed by now.

I ask myself that question very often, Europe would no longer exist, it'd be named Germania and there would be no Israel, we can speculate if Japan and Germany wold have remained allies after the end of the war.

Americans already speak a type of German, it's called English.

I'd have been taught german as a second language at school instead of french

Thered be almost no jews left. Whatever jews are still alive would be living far away from civilization. I guess there might be a lot of dead blacks, mexicans, and anything else with dark skin.

The Axis powers would compete against each other in their own cold war, and...

The Allied countries will excel in automobile engineering and electronics.

A lot whiter and blonder -Sun_Tzu-

the Italians and the Japanese made up two thirds of the Axis Powers, brah. the whiter and blonder spiel would have only applied to Germany.

I don't think much would of changed outside Israel never existing. If only there were a what if machine

Supporting occupation forces would require significant material investment. It would create a vast number of jobs in the industry sector, much like it did during the war, only on a much larger scale. If you didn't notice, I'm not a fan of big government, whether tyrannical through violence, or tyrannical through other methods.

I'd assume most of everyone would be speaking german. We would probably be very economically strong and probably would have made great technological advances. Although I think the world would only be populated with white people. There would be peace but it would have been built by up fear, intimidation, lies, death and a controlling force.

Wouldn't matter who won, either way their both European.
#21 Posted by superclocked (5823 posts) -
The Germans would've betrayed and nuked the Japanese most likely.. So I'm going to say German.
#22 Posted by Pittfan666 (8532 posts) -
At least there would be some awesome food joints serving German food. Mc Donalds would be selling schnitzel, pints of beer, and be a mini beer hall.

Well OT wouldn't have any topics on Israel for one. I think technology would have advanced slower as Europe and Asia wouldn't be cooperating with America and chances are after WWII Japan and Germany would go to war effectively splitting technological development three ways. It's entirely possible the Cold War wouldn't have been Cold resulting in nuclear destruction across large swaths of land. Basically I think the world would be pretty f*cked. There's so much that has happened as a direct result of WWII though that any really indepth analysis would require some pretty set rules before you could start constructing theories as to what happened.

Probably not much different other than maybe we'd all have to sport little mustaches.

That doesn't equate to more prosperity. Russia had huge industry post WWII and but it ended up flailing around compared to the US, Japan, and West Germany.

Japan especially I doubt would have become the juggernaut it is if the US hadn't destroyed it and for lack of a better word 'started over'.

They weren't efficient enough to win.

True story it was Allied efficiency that won that war, not German. Russian efficiency is underrated. I'd say a tank that can kick ass, be mass produced and repaired with farmyard junk is far more efficient than a tank that can kick ass that needs parts directly imported from Berlin.

Or never born depending on your age. That's one obvious ramification.

That's making an assumption that Germany takes over the entire world.

Or at least the parts of the world that had significant quantities of Jews.
