Extreme punishment? The Marshall plan pumped billions into West Germany which allowed the nation to thrive. Ordinary Germans were not punished.

The Soviet block, on the other hand, was plenty of punishment for millions of people and could be argued to be behind the rise of fascism, much of it in Eastern Europe.

Look at Japan. Decades of occupation by the US didn't lead to a rise in fascism there.
