I'm glad this is creating a discussion & points can be made both for & against.
As history shows & is factual in real life, the Nazi party was heavily funded by heads of major financial & industrial corporations from America & other countries. (google "who funded the Nazi Party/Third Reich" - this is no longer just a conspiracy theory) Also refer "Operation Paperclip"
Many of these people had either German/Aryian heritage or just financial interests for self promotion.
Another type of 'Metephor' I've always thought followed the story of Dr Maxis & Dr Richtofen is that of the illumanti.
From what i understand the original 'Bavarian Illumanti' was established by influential leaders TO "Improve the Human Condition" - Maxis Intentions.
Whereas, the 'New World Order Illumanti' is just for self preservation/promotion - Dr Richtofen's intentions.
(don't quote me on any of this, I'm way out of my league. hahahaha)
Back to our Game!
While I'm fully aware of ALL the radios/reels & other documentation in-game (I think I have a solid grasp of the storyline) these are the only references in which we can understand the story.
We are at a point in which what we think is the correct story, may take major plot twists. We have been introduced to the mysterious 'Abigail' & her background purpose will only unfold.
Another thing to speculate would be why Dr Maxis calls the tower a 'Spire' & Dr Richtofen refers to it as an 'Obelisk?'
A spire is a tapering conical or pyramidal structure on the top of a building, particularly a church tower.
Etymologically, the word is derived from the Old English word spir, meaning a sprout, shoot, or stalk of grass.
(Currently, the largest spire to be part of the architecture of another building is the spire mounted on the recently completed Q1 residential tower on the Gold Coast in Australia. - Off Topic, this is about half an hour away from me)
An obelisk (from Greek ὀβελίσκος - obeliskos, diminutive of ὀβελός - obelos, "spit, nail, pointed pillar") is a tall, four-sided, narrow tapering monument which ends in a pyramid-like shape at the top, and is said to resemble a petrified ray of the sun-disk.
