second to last Krupp episode, and terminally online types ought to love it, because it's exploring postwar Germans framing themselves as a nation oppressed by international imperialism and working with Third World nations to do business, lol
Vera Hossenfeldt, the con artist who got Alfried to marry her, lol
Konrad Adenauer, chancellor of West Germany
on their honeymoon, Alfried and Vera Krupp went to the Savoy and then flew to Nassau
who'd they meet in Nassau on their honeymoon? Axel Wenner-Gren, of course

for meetings. about, you know, things.
the first head of state to visit the Krupps was the Conquering Lion of the Tribe of Judah, His Imperial Majesty Haile Selassie I, King of Kings, Lord of Lords, Elect of God
some people know about the Elizabeth Taylor diamond, but not everyone knows that it was formerly the Krupp diamond, which Alfried bought for Vera
Alfried was in Egypt meeting with Otto Skorzeny, who had been on Krupp Steel's payroll. whoops.
Harald Krupp, who was captured and sent to a gulag for his crimes lmao
it's fun, check it out

he's talking about people being programmed, and about him getting taken out
Kanye says that Bone Thugs-n-Harmony was approached by the feds to make negative music that would make black people get sent to prison

I've heard a lot about Soviet inefficiencies in the economy, but getting into Imperial Japan, apparently it was also a total shitshow
they had entire divisions in China that didn't have rifles, but remember, "we had to nuke them or else we would've lost a million troops invading"
they ran out of shoes too. yeah, I don't think this would've been a dozen Iwo Jimas
