: The fault (in my opinion) lies with capitalism itself - it is too ingrained into capitalism that profit comes at the expense of competitors. You achieve primacy standing on the shoulders of your fallen competitors. Even "green" capitalists, such as Ben and Jerry's, or The Body Shop, fall victim to this. It's also notable that many of the products produced by such "green" companies are luxury goods, not staples (i.e. basic foods).
If this is the case, it is Capitalism itself which should be replaced. Unfortunatly, there is no other system that can create such economic vitality and create wealth for a country. It is a pity that human greed gets in the way of a positive re-distrubution of wealth in a country like the UK or US. Going back to the questionn of 'genetic evil' surely Americans with German heritage would quickly become emersed in the combined genetic gene-pool of all the peoples in the United States, including the Native Americans and African-Americans etc, and this in itself would thin out any 'Nazi' genes, even if they did exist...
