RE: Thoughts on Hitler?
For better or worse Hitler began the custom of a big opening ceremony for the Olympic games in 1936. Of course it was all propaganda for the superiority of the "master race" but from 1936 onward each opening games has had to have a huge ceremony.





He also was instrumental in the creation of........ Spring Time for Hitler.....

"Thoughts on Hitler?"

He was a solid 7, I'd say. I just don't care for a guy with a mustache.

RE: Thoughts on Hitler?
Hitler was acting on inadequate science - he got what he deserved.

That being said, inadequate people are over-populating the world.

Humanism - ontological doctrine that posits that humans define reality
Theism - ontological doctrine that posits a supernatural entity creates and defines reality
Atheism - political doctrine opposed to theist doctrine in public policy
I am right, and you are wrong - I hope you die peacefullyCool

RE: Thoughts on Hitler?
My thoughts on Hitler are many. Too many to leave here by posting on a phone.

Time's man of the year. Just like a Pope.

An interesting book is Getting Hitler into Heaven, authored by his batman.

Someone mentioned earlier in the thread that Fascism is dead. I disagree as strongly as possible and state that it is on the rise and getting stronger every day. That the 20th century's ills are no longer with us is also something I deny. Israel exists as a direct result of WWII. And WWII was the direct result of WWI. History is connected. There is no cut off in history.

Adolph Hitler's legacy remains.

RE: Thoughts on Hitler?
Sorry, thoughts on what? I'm not sure what a hitler is. Is it a profession? Someone who hitles?

Some human beings show no respect for other people's lives. What do we give them in exchange? Virtual immortality in our memories. But when I ask others about names like Vinton Cerf or Robert Kahn, the answer is often along the lines of "who the hell is that?"

I'm not too keen on idolising anyone, but if I were, I think I'd choose different idols.

Usually it's the person who is utterly repulsive in their actions that garners more attention than the people who we admire. You'd think the reverse would be true, although it's very surprising to people when we see another commit such an inhumane act. I think this is because people generally think, "how could somebody do something like that"?

When somebody like Martin Luther King JR rises up against racism with courage, we admire them. When somebody ruthlessly murders a stranger out of cold blood for no apparent reason, we tend to not idolize, but remember what they did, and the thought of that resonates more than somebody doing something civilized.

In a garden full of beautiful flowers, we tend to notice the one ugly flower because it stands out and is different from the rest. This, I'd say, is why you see some people always saying the world is such a bad place. They just notice the unfortunate things more than the fortunate things.

One could also say that whatever the person does (good or bad) is entirely indifferent to how much we'll recognize them. Rather, I argue we mainly remember somebody not of their actions but the magnitude of them. Actions "bad" and "evil" generally have more of an influence or magnitude to us than "good". It is like the ugly flower that has more of an impact on us because of its uniqueness to its surrounding.

Everyday is judgement day. Use your judgement, use reason.

RE: Thoughts on Hitler?
Perhaps it is best to remember Hitler beyond the man, and look to the impact of National Socialism as a whole.

To do this we must take into account WWII and it's legacy. Like WWI, WWII exists beyond the years confined to it by history. Just as the First war led to the Second, we see the implications or ramification, in the news each day. Just as we have since 1945.

The existence of Israel, the Cold War, the Nazi presence in South America, the rise of American power policy and political meddling, Korea, Vietnam etc etc.

There is too much to discuss when considering Thoughts on Hitler. This single thread cannot hope to even begin to scratch the surface. It is a pointless thread.

All threads are pointless and only scratch the surface...

What I mean and perhaps failed to express is this; we need more specific questions when looking into such a comprehensive topic.

Fair. Currently this is just a thread for discussing anything vaguely Hitler themed Tongue
