    The greatest men in the World, like the greatest rivers in the World, can fairly be judged only by studying both the good and harm they have done in their lifetimes. The greatest rivers, in their journey from the highest mountains to the sea do great damage to nations; but the good that they do invariably exceeds the harm. But such is not the case with the greatest men, as observed in the starkly contrasting destinies of the German Fatherland, after the total defeat of the Marxists; and the Russian Motherland, after the total defeat by the Marxists.

    Naturally, the respected judges of the greatest rivers and men, are never those who were defeated and destroyed; but rather, those who conquered and created. And an eternity of wailing, ranting, ideological rationalization, and historical fabrication can never change the World's final judgments of the greatest rivers and greatest men. The higher purpose of historical objectivity, in the study of Hitler, is to learn from his successes and failures; so as to do better in the inevitable future struggles for national survival.

    Actually, if not for Hitler, eastern europe wouldn't have spent 40 years under marxism. Also my guess is WWII prolonged the existence of the soviet union, and probably created the PRC.

    Any sort of conquest like hitlers invasion across europe, or the romans centurys earlier, were early stepping stones to globalisation if you want to look at them in a productive way.

    Hitler was also a vegetarian and a real nut about pollution and making a “green” planet.

    A real environmentalist, maybe the first in the long line of them!

    P.E.T.A. would have loved him, so would AlGore

    He was also a heterosexual, so that means that all straights love him too.

    Oh yeah, a real enviro starts wars that destroy half the world, good thinking. Jesus F. Christ, is there no length to which you will not go to defame, denigrate, and deny the humanity of your fellow Americans?

    On the plus side, he gave us an icon that can be used whenever there is any politician with whom we disagree. Just paint a silly little mustache on your favorite whipping boy, and voila! he's no different from the most hated man of our times.

    Actually , The Obama Administration is much like Hitlers in term of Agenda , Low Character of members , hate of Capitalism , Distrust of Clergy, and the total CORRUPTION of our Congress , regardless of party. The use of FEAR, BRIBES. and Hate ,to scare politicians to follow Obama and Gang!
    There is little or no difference between the two!!

    Wait, aren't you the one who wants compulsory re-education for half the American population? I note that you never answered my questions about this re-education process. You are advocating Mao and Pol Pot re-education and you have the gall to abuse Obie?
