The excelent book wages of destruction by adam tooze had given us a nice chart on how the average german family ate 2 years before ww2 under hitlers rule.

I complied all the food stuffs with on the chart in 1937 and found the average german proletarian family had approximately 1.96 million calories each year. This then translates into at least 5,361 calories each day.

I then check the average size of a german family which was 4 people 2 parents 2 kids using the fertility rate to get to my conclusion on this.

I check that the average male requires at least 2,500 to maintain his bodyweight For women this = 2,000 and for children 1600~2200 calories but this can be averaged into 1,900 calories each day. Combined this means the average german family needed to have 8,300 calories daily to maintain their weight and most likely their optimal health.

Taking in the account the average familial calorie consumption of 5,361 calories a day to the required 8,300 this means

==The average german family had only meet 64.6% of their required amount of calories in order to maintain their weight and most likely their health as well== added with the fact that hitler was destroying the german reserves and accumulating massive debt to fund the army this means that if the germans didnt go full lebensruam and conquered most of europe by the 1940s by the least the german economy would not only be in shambles but the german population would be starving too creating a famine that would make the holodomor look like a fucking cakewalk.

Good post but keep in mind that the term "Holodomor" does NOT refer to the 1932-1933 famine (these are conflated on purpose so if you challenge the Holodomor narrative you get branded as a famine denier), it's specifically a term cooked up by ukrainian nationalists in the 1980s which claims the 1932-1933 famine was 1. man-made and 2. targeted at ukrainians, both of which are blatant lies. It's no coincidence that the name resembles the holocaust and the supposed death toll (7 million, actual is 2 million) is higher than that of the holocaust.

The holodomor, just like cultural marxism, is unironically fascist propaganda but every anti-communist will run with it cause they don't face the mouth that feeds them.

This is not entirely a matter of bad faith. Holocaust denial is widely known in popular culture as an example of poor reasoning, so many people just assume whoever questions claims of genocide is a lying idiot.

Let me explain once more. What objectively happened was a famine which affected large parts of USSR territory. This famine was the result of droughts. According to some, dekulakization and collectivization (which happened at the same time) made it even worse, or might even be the sole cause of the famine. This is disputable. Even if you believe collectivization and dekulakization caused starvation (lmao), that still makes it unintentional.

The soviet famine of 1932-1933 is NOT known as the holodomor.

Holodomor is NOT the term used for the 1932-1933 famine which spanned multiple republics.

Holodomor is NOT the term used for the famine in Ukraine.

Holodomor is NOT the term used for a famine which might or might not have been the result of mismanagement.

Holodomor is a term used which rewrites this famine as a man-made, intentional and anti-ukranian effort.

Tooze’s book has been widely discredited. The title alone tells you it’s a screed rather than an honest historical study. Here’s a link to the full text of Richard Tedor’s study “Hitler’s Revolution,” the best one-volume account of what Not Socialism was actually about and what it accomplished:

https://archive.org/details/HitlersRevolutionByRichardTedor_383

Fritz Reinhardt, a state secretary in the Reich Ministry of Finance, introduced the revolutionary program in 1933 that rebuilt Germany’s economy. The plan is often credited to the Minister of Finance Schact, but in fact he opposed it. The restoration of the shattered economy was enabled through the Labor Procurement Law of June 1, the Building Repair Law passed later that summer, the Tax Relief Law, the Company Refinancing Law; and for farmers the Reich’s Food Producer’s Law, all legislated in September, completing the foundation of the new economy. The huge costs of the these plans were covered by the reduction in jobless benefits made by creating jobs, and increases in corporate tax and sales tax, to the extent that in October, Reinhart was able to announce in Bremen, “expenditures and income of the Reich have balanced out.”

Millions of jobs were created for civilian infrastructure improvements. Contrary to persistent rumor, no more than 16.6% was annually allocated to military spending, and most of this was defensive, aimed at necessary precautions against a France that had invaded German territory thirty times in the previous two centuries. Compare this to the contemporary new arms race in rivals Britain and France which consumed 9% of their hugely larger GDPs.

FDR imitated Germany’s policies in his NRA, with the CCC and other alphabet agencies designed to put the unemployed back to work. The fatal difference is that his programs were financed by loans from the one-percenters, “the hyenas of international capital”, in the German leader’s words. Germany achieved full employment in four years, while the U.S. unemployment rate was still a staggering 14% after nine years of FDR’s policies, and the American people were saddled with massive deficit spending to repay the bankers, from which we have never since been freed.

It behooves us on the left to remember Marx's dictum that in the modern world, nation-states function chiefly as agents of international capital. At the most fundamental level, Germany's unforgivable sin was its refusal to become enmeshed in this web of global greed. And Germany's authoritarian socialism implicitly committed heresy against America's primary political illusion, that capitalism and democracy are compatible.

Dismiss me a neo-nazi if it comforts you, but if we are to rehash them over and over again in the 21st century, we won’t learn anything from the effort if we do not do so accurately and in context. Representing the annihilation of Germany’s socialist revolution as a holy crusade against evil was the first total success of the modern US propaganda machine and the rationale for creating the military-industrial complex. Together these two institutions effectively destroyed our republic, and now, in the service of globalism, they jeopardize the very survival of our species.

That book looks unreliable. Not an academic historian, apparently very biased in favor of Hitler’s government. To be fair, I don’t recommend Grover Furr to anyone on Stalin. I saw multiple critiques that stated Tedor committed the same kind of (likely ideologically based) historical sins someone like Furr usually does, like obviously leaving out or not addressing information he should be aware of that could contradict his thesis. Or relying too much on sources that would support his argument even if they have contradictions elsewhere, and even if they were weaker sources than others (like domestic media propaganda vs. internal memos, private diaries of high officials and state data collection). I haven’t read Tooze’s book, but I’d be inclined to trust western historian’s data collection more than a rando as long as you read between the lines for certain things. Especially on something like Nazi Germany, which has had so much academic attention that another academic would jump to tear down the mistakes of somebody doing specious revisionism.

As it turns out, it seems like Tooze’s book isn’t considered that way. The journal reviews I’ve found claim that he just restated the consensus of other academics on the German economy, so I’m guessing he hasn’t been thoroughly debunked or torn down by anybody but internet Nazis.
