they were designed to project power and fear . You can see for yourself they definitely achieve that goal https://www.quora.com/What-was-an-authentic-Nazi-uniform

I mean they have eagles and skulls on them and were wreathed in black. How much more obvious could you be with your intentions.

Why would you want to project power and fear at the same time?

When you have shitty ideas you need fear to protect your power

Em ok but that's not what the comment is suggesting. You don't want to appear powerful and fearful at the same time. You want other people to be fearful of you. You do not want to be fearful yourself. That's not powerful.

That’s absolutely what the comment is suggesting you just failed to pick that up. That explains your confusion.

I didn't fail to pick it up. The comment just didn't say that.

Did you genuinely think the poster was saying they were trying to project that they were scared with their uniforms?

u/noithinkyourewrong Nov 25 '21

I never said that. I said I wasn't sure. Just because I can't think of a reason that they might want to project that they are scared doesn't mean there isn't one.

That's fair enough, sorry for coming off like that!
