Sigmund Freud? You cannot be serious.

Hitler's people burned his books, interrogated his daughter, Anna, hung a very professional looking Nazi insignia above his front door, and as a result the very old man with cancer felt he should escape Vienna. Hitler's people later murdered his sisters, friends, countrymen and millions of others.

Sigmund Freud invented psychoanalysis. Do try to keep a record of how many times in a day his work and findings are mentioned casually by people who probably have no idea that they are speaking his language of psychoanalysis.

The next time you hear someone mentioning anything like neurosis, the unconscious, meaning of dreams, egomanic, ego, repressed, anally obsessed, oral fixation, narcissist, narcissism (primary or secondary), the death instinct (wanting to get "out of it, maybe just briefly via alcohol / drugs), sense of entitlement, melancholia (depression), free association, the meaning of jokes, Oedipus complex (not mentioned a lot, but it's there), Freudian slips, sibling rivalry, inability to get over something bad, e.g. death, the id, collecting habits, I could go on - I think there are 30 something volumes of his work - do think of the late Very Great Sigmund Freud.

Very great indeed.

Ok, you've convinced me ....  Sigmund Freud to get retro bumped-off seems a top idea.

If further back in time, then would need to make a choice between Roman leaders....

Four digits forward, and it would definitely be goodbye time for William of Normandy.

Be careful what you wish for


If say, you knocked off Hitler who knows,  perhaps someone else would have surfaced who would win the war

or we could all be speaking Russian!

And the further back you go the more changes....


it's enough to ...........

France was occupied for a number of years by the Germans, 1940-44; yet today the French still speak...French.

Poland, Ukraine, East Germany, Hungary, Czechoslovakia, Romania, Bulgaria, etc. all Soviet satellites for decades; yet, they all retained their Mother tongues. 

Scotland, Wales and Ireland, on the other hand invaded by the English and their languages became secondary to the invader's tongue. So, who are the cultural tyrants, the English or the Russians?

Charles Trevelyan.

It's not so much Sigmund but his bloody off spring Particularly the one who is doing his level best to make all our lives a misery.

re #4 :

Didn't the Amish always refer to the rest of the USA as "the English"?

Ironic twist that despite living retro, in context of what you've commented they were way ahead of their time.....

No idea. Where the Amish originally Dutch (corruption of Deutsch, meaning German)? There is a myth that has perpetuated of German almost succeeding as the official language of the USA - by this I'm obviously speaking of the country stolen from what we now know as Amerindians.

Don't know about being well ahead of their time. Why, it's only in relatively 'modern' times that those other than 'Wasps' were regarded as top drawer in the more 'fashionable' circles of the East Coast cities.

Doesn't 'retro' mean imitative, as in copying fashion or styles from a recent past. The Amish aren't so much copying as continuing traditions laid down by their predecessors.

If I could travel back in time I'd be more inclined to hump someone rather bump someone off.

I might be tempted to have chemically castrated Freud.

I think the Amish were either German or Swiss.    There has always been confusion in America between "Deutsch" and "Dutch"    Remember New York was originally called New Amsterdam.

Remember as well that a lot of the redcoats in the War of Independence were German, so don't think having it as the official language would have gone down well!!


And the comment  about speaking Russian was very much (where's the tongue in cheek smiley?)smiley103

The countries in the old USSR kept their own languages in spite of the Russianisation of their states not because of it.

A myth perpetrated on a 'Max Kade' website; hardly going to be subjective on a topic like this. Come on Offworld, would you take seriously a critique or Marx from Adam Smith Institute?

Perpetuated? Debunked, surely?
I thought the page to which I'd put a link, explained what the
myth may have been based on -- while it also detailed how
a myth is all that it could ever have been!

>>>

<<<

I wouldn't even take seriously a critique of Adam Smith by that
shady shower, who (to be fair to Smith himself) seem to have
deliberately and selectively mis-represented his ideas.
