I have to admit I read a translated version, so I can't say I understand how the book seemed to hypnotize millions of Germans. I can only assume that a book written by an absolute, all powerful, ruler who could lock you up for having the wrong attitude, probably helped make it a "best seller".
And the fault of England and France for putting them in their state after WWI.
Not saying he was right or wrong, but people were desperate & poor and the best way to deal with it is to blame everybody else, focus on that anger and use it to get yourself out of the mess you're in at the expense of those you blame.
.... It worked..... for a while. Then they went too far. They went waaaay too far.
Is there a danger that Hitler's book,"Mein Kampf" could help spawn another monster?
Adolf Hitler's Mein Kampf at centre of fresh controversy - World - CBC News
The merit of that idea was always a matter of perspective so when it was encouraged and bankrolled and finally defeated they assured us, they were safe to continue it's refinement under the cover of its supposed elimination.
Hitlers handlers acctually won the second world war and they intend to win this fresh chapter. The numbers of victims don't concern them in the least. Their uncontested continuation is all that matters to them.
If normal people read it in the right context its harmless. I read it in grade 10, it was rather dull. It had some interesting parts though. It surprises me that he made a lot of his plans public nearly a decade before coming to power and still no one really took him seriously til it was too late.
darkbeaver is that avatar battery run or does it pulse on wind power?
The most important thing to bear in mind is that Hitler did not act alone. He was part of a large group of fanatics whose crazed ideas were circulating throughout Germany since at least the 1870s. For half a century they were spreading these ideas and convincing people that it was a form of inevitable 'manifest destiny' that was going to happen regardless of anyone's wishes. Therefore, the key in preventing what took place was not in stopping Hitler but in stopping his many supporters and financiers. Had his many henchmen been stopped, and the financing they got taken away, all the conflicts could have been avoided.
