Henrik - having to give the fascist salute doesn't MAKE them fascists themselves
You'd have to ask yourself what's their alternative? A quick bullet???
For example - one of the aspects of 1933
was the SA running riot in Germany, beating up people at the side of the road etc. if they didn't give the Nazi alute to pasing parades/marches etc. This was long before the Nazi salute became obligatory for civil servants etc. in 1934
After being beaten up a few times at the side of the street - what would you expect the average Berliner to do? NOT do it and queue up for another beating?
Giving the Nazi salute the next
time wouldn't be anything to do with politics - just self-preservation...
Same for any nation under foreign occupation during the war - "you render unto Caesar what is Caesar's"....and live to fight and curse them another day
