The Germans and Nazis were not interested in creating a Utopian Pan-Euro continent. This is laughable.
Dr. Robert Ley, leader of the German Labour front in the Third Reich stated:
Charlemagne, Prince Eugen, Frederick the Great, Napoleon Bonaparte and Victor Hugo all wanted a united Europe, and fought for it. As Napoleon Bonaparte sat in St. Helena, miserable and demoralized, he wrote the following prophetic words: "I failed. I was not strong enough to unify Europe. But someone will come after me who will realise my banner once ore and finish my work, and then no one will speak of England any longer, but rather one will speak of a Napoleon

These prophetic words of Napoleon Bonaparte, England's sworn enemy, are now being fulfilled. European unity is being forged now that the Jew has been driven from it. Under the leadership of its Fuhrer Adolf Hitler, Germany will carry the banner of this ancient, yet ever young, part of the Earth. At the end of this war, Germany will win and Europe will be united!

They insist on calling it Capitalist, but it is not. A debt based and rent based system of economic peonage is not Capitalist. It is predatory and discivic.
And why should we distinguish Capitalism from Usury? Does it not flow from man's individual right to engage in non-coercive activities with others? Liberals and Protestants who welcomed and ushered in Capitalism defended usury - men such as Calvin, Smith, and Bentham, among others.

Hmm, you really don't know the difference between capital investment and borrowing debt at interest? Interesting

Indeed, but no else wanted it. Least of all the people that were crushed by these megalomaniacs . What's your point? Pan-Euroism fails because people don't want it in any format.

Is capitalism just capital investment? Huh? My point was that the same thinkers and figures that defended the emerging mercantile bourgeois regime against Throne and Alter also supported the end of the prohibition on usury. Both ideas flow from the belief in individual autonomy. Both are manifestations of Liberalism.

I also note that Woods et al, won't touch the fact that the Nazis were funded by 'International Finance
Hitler's funding by international finance is a common myth parroted in conspiratorial circles. Hjalmar Schacht, who did have connections with international finance, was put in a concentration camp by the Third Reich. Hitler received funding from domestic industrial capitalists, but not internationalist ones. The Myth of the Big Business-Nazi Axis | CODOH

Indeed, but no else wanted it. Least of all the people that were crushed by these megalomaniacs . What's your point? Pan-Euroism fails because people don't want it in any format.
That's why foreign non-Germans comprised half of the Waffen SS. In the last century, it was Pan-Europeanism or the destruction of European eminence. How can a divided Europe face China, America, or Russia? It's telling that after the first world war, the liberal internationalist Woodrow Wilson advocated for national self-determination to break up any semblance of European Power. Why did he advocate for this? Hmm.

I'm afraid you'll find that Professor Guido Giacomo Preparata is no conspiracy theorist. His research and book seem very convincing and very supported by evidence. International finance is his area of expertise:

EDUCATION
Born in Boston, Massachusetts, October 25th, 1968, I was raised in the United States, France, and Italy. I have obtained a B.S. in economics at the Libera Università Internazionale degli Studi Sociali (LUISS, Rome, Italy), a Master’s degree in Economics and a PhD in Political Economy at the University of Southern California (Los Angeles, USA), and an Mphil in Criminology at the University of Cambridge (UK). Further graduate and undergraduate coursework in financial history, applied mathematics, economic theory, and international economics was completed at Stanford University, the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), the California Institute of Technology (Caltech), and the London School of Economics (LSE).
CAREER
I first worked as a research associate at the Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI, Palo Alto, USA); I subsequently joined the research division of the department of Supervision & Regulation at the Bank of Italy, Italy’s central bank; and from 2000 to 2008 I taught political economy at the University of Washington. In 2005, as a Visiting Professor of Economics and Fulbright Scholar at the University of Jordan, in Amman, I have conducted research on Political Islam, Terrorism, and Islamic Economics. In 2012, I joined the Pontifical Gregorian University, in Rome, as a Senior Lecturer of Social Sciences, and before coming to the Gregorian, I served as a Lecturer at Kwantlen Polytechic University in Vancouver, Canada, where I taught the sociology and psychology of criminal behavior.

There is no meat on a Pan European bone to get people interested. This is why brute force was always needed to be achieve this end, and this is why it will never succeed. You can bemoan the disunity of Europe following the Reformation, but there is only once force that can unite Europe again, while still allowing nationhood and individual cultural expression to flourish.The same force in fact that created our concept of Europe to start with. The alt right denies this force its historic role or any future role in reuniting Europe. As such, the alt right are basically in league with the enemies of Europe.

Guido Giacomo Preparata joins Our Interesting Times to discuss his book Conjuring Hitler: How Britain and America made the Third Reich. We talk about how Great Britain fomented two world wars to prevent an alliance forming between Germany and Russia and how the rise of National Socialism in Germany was not an aberration or accident of history but the result of Anglo-American financial support and intrigue.
