As you know ,Cal, there's no shortage of neo-Nazis here on Care 2.

Thanks Stan--absolutely. I didn't post the accompanying historic picture of Hitler that the article provides so as not to cause too much excitement and hero worship.

Sadly one wonders if the people of my parents generation fought and died in vain to rid the planet of this evil man as there are many more like him to a greater or lesser degree who espouse the same level of megalomania and ideas of racial purity etc. Mein Kampf has to be one of the more boring tomes written and delving into Hitler's mindset is a recipe for insomnia once one strips the paranoia and ludicrous tenets of the man away from the fable. His level of insecurity is mirrored in many places on the planet and one wonders who he would have chosen to hate had he not have had a Jewish classmate whom he disliked at school! Such speculation is of course pointless as the damage he inflicted not only on Jews but many other sections of society and his own people as well are well documented Hitler should stay where he belongs, in the history books of a dark period of the last century! However we should never forget the havok he wrought and learn from history and perhaps not repeat the same errors in the future. Sadly few politicians read history and if they do they believe it will not happen to them!

imho, anyone who 'likes' "Mein KRampf" (as i prefer to call it; Krampf = cramp/spasm) must be mostly-illiterate or seriously deranged and/or never read the book; even putting aside WHAT adolph&helpers wrote - the (extremely unadept) way HOW they put it into words makes it some of the worst writing i've ever studied.

HeilT [=heal] Hitler ['s worshippers] !

What's the difference - Religious fanatics and any form of fanatics - none. They're all just as bad

Hitler brought a country that had been brought to its knees (by America demanding a full repayment of loans because of the depression) and had run away inflation & unemployment back into self pride.

Obviously, I do not admire Hitler or anything that he did but others can and do admire such an achievement without liking the terrible things that Hitler did.

Actually, Gillian, the German hyperinflation caused by the reparations problem peaked in November, 1923 when a trillion old marks were converted to one new mark, which was stable until Hitler came to power a decade later.

Thanks for the link. This was a long read and worth every page. If you are not at least a little scared for the future, you didn't read it carefully enough.
