To what degree is Angela Merkel's role in the Greek crisis a continuation of WW2 Germany's goals of dominating Europe?

Asked by elbanditoroso (29106points) June 30th, 2015

I don’t think that Merkel is as powerful as Hitler, and she certainly doesn’t have the territorial ambitions. The similarity to me is in the influence that the leader of Germany has over the continent.

What I observe is that Merkel’s singlehanded influence on Europe’s economic status, and her intransigence, and her ability to attempt to destroy Greece, is somewhat analogous to what Germany attempted to do during WW2.

Is Germany’s ascent to this role in Europe a new Reich?

Does anyone else see the parallels (and the dangers) of German hegemony?
