I don't get it.
Why didn't he just tell them what they needed to know?
Why throw your life away in service for an obviously evil regime that committed atrocities daily and waged offensive war on the rest of the world.
The moral and just choice would be to help the allies.
>obviously evil regime that committed atrocities daily and waged offensive war on the rest of the world
It's also the movie saying "Yes, there were in fact perfectly noble german soldiers who wanted nothing more than to defend their homeland. This movie doesn't care about those soldiers"
History is written by the victors. It isn't hard to see from an unbiased point of view, Germany wasn't the villain in WWII.
Before Nuclear Warfare changed everything, it was not uncommon for countries to try to expand their influence and boost their quality of life (and the quality of life of who they conquer) through militaristic land expansion. The American did it too when they conquered land from the Natives and Mexico.
They were also retaliating against being politically abused by the victors of WWI, a war in which there truly was no real "bad guy" or "good guy".
Because he did not want to be responsible for the death of other Germans. He was hoping everyone else was the same and would also politely decline. Maybe the Basterds would have killed a few of the Germans that were up ahead. Maybe they would have killed them all. At least he didn't rat them out and send the Basterds out to butcher them. He may have been a Nazi, but he still cared for Germany and the Germany people.
>Why didn't he just tell them what they needed to know?
he was loyal.I know its a strange concept for modern people
>obviously evil regime
allies where not anti eugenics or basically anything the nazis did until the war started and they had to claim moral high ground (like with the communists later)
Maybe because people have different points of views and thought what he was doing was right? It's really not that hard to understand unless you are brain dead.
Also the Nazi's were the good guys, I would've done the same in his shoes.
the jews were the bad guys in this movie, except tarantino is a moron and probably didn't realize it when he wrote it. Probably too busy huffing feet in Walmart changing rooms or something.
Globalism is the best way towards world peace and it is funny that this chart denouces the USSR for taking North Korea as a spoil of war but says its a positive that Germany would take parts of the USSR. Not even the most obvious hypocrisy in it btw
It was about role reversal. The Jews are the ones committing the ugly violence against someone who seems like a decent human at least as an individual.
Its probably some sort of comment on modern Israel and Palestine.
