Anyone else read the Leviathan by Scott Wessfield?
Anyways, back to the topic.
I believe that the world would actually be a better place, economically speaking.
I say this because Germany, despite that they had to pay out of their ass after the war, currently has the 4th best economy in the world and are pretty well up there in technology. It would've lead the world into a more stable, albeit a bit extreme future.
I personally think Germany would've been a great world leader, the victory of world war 1 would've set them up better financially and would've tripled their fighting power, effectively being able to trump the United States in a fight, especially if they finished their stealth bomber project. Hitler would've won and be able to carry out his wishes easily.
This would've been both a good thing and a horribly horribly bad thing.
The world will be in a much more stable state, economically, politically and technology, but then again both the Jewish and African population would either be drastically low or extinct. Consequently, the diversity in religions would be decreased to Secret Atheism and Christianity. The world would become an omni-government with the heir of Hitler at the head of state (good grief).
Africa would become a giant mass of farmland, and what is now Jerusalem will be effectively wiped off the face of the earth.
Hitler was a madman, yes, but he was following his ideas to the grave. For that I applaud him, right after I give him a swift kick to the balls for being the murderous hypocrite he was.
Just my 1 and a half cent.
