    Default George Bernard Shaw Defends Hitler, Mass Murder

    Came across this on you tube earlier. Very interesting and something I was not aware of.

    Only one thing matters: live a good, happy life. Do your heart's bidding, even when it leads you on paths that timid souls would avoid. Even when life is a torment, don't let it harden you.

    He also supported Stalin's starvation of the Ukraine in the 30's. Shaw was a psychopath.

    He had a great beard though. And he sure as hell looks good hanging up on a pub wall.

    G B Shaw described the Starvation of Ireland at the time of the potatoe crop failure.

    His witty descriptions of the English are hilarious.

    As an abstract thinker, a writer of plays and an all round wit, GBS was a genius.

    As a practical political thinker though...ummm...

    He was also very fond of Beethoven and Wagner.

    He helped educate this very ignorant at 22 year old Elvis fan, in 1964. I discovered LV Beethoven!

    Many years ago British actor David Tomlison said, "you hardly need to read anything else after reading Shaw because he covered just about every subject under the sun!" Words to that effect anyway.,

    I share Shaw's disdain for sport where a hand can ruin a good game of football. Even a gust of wind!
