Bavarian Soviet

There were (2) Socialist Republics Declared in Bavaria 1919-1920. Bamburg and Munich.

I didn't know they fought multiple Pitched Battles between each other (one bureaucratic socialist, the other "Soviet" Worker's Councils) during their short existence!

Also interestingly, the People's State of Bavaria was mostly run by Bohemians (the class, not the actual ethnicity), Intellectuals, and Artists who hated Business/Bourgeois. The leader was a Jewish Beatnik "Drama Critic" named Eisner who was the very model of the practical-politically clueless avante-garde idiot.

Ironically Eisner was shot by a right wing Bavarian of Mixed Aristocratic-Jewish Ancestry, Anton Graf von Arco-Valley, who hated the left because his decorated cockade was ripped off his head by a Leftist Mob.

One of the most developed parts of Germany, Bavaria HAD leaned left and progressive, but the experience with the People's Republic and Soviets turned them hard right.

There were many interesting things to learn in Germany which are not commonly known here:

- Berlin was basically the San Francisco of Germany before WWII, very homo
- Versailles reparations devastated the German economy, leading to actual deaths by starvation
- fighting in the streets between communists and fascists and I think other groups
- the communists might well have won, and history would have been very different, and potentially even worse with a German Stalin instead of Hitler

Yes, it is an interesting story. I wonder if an equivalent revulsion to the progressives will ever occur here, since they seem to be sowing the same kinds of anarchy, administrative incompetence, blindness, idiotically derived ideals and general social destruction.

I thought Hitler was at least partly financed by Western banks and the Royals as a bulwark against Soviet Communism, which had assassinated the Russian Royals.
