sure Hitler was a dictator, a racist, a murderer, a hater of jews, and many other things; but, was he crazy? He alone sought to unify all of europe under German rule. Why did Hitler lose WWII? was it because he became to arrogant or selfish. Discuss this man's sanity, his tactics, and the dream that had as much beneficial things as it did negative things.

Germany lost WWII because British radar pwned their planes and their failed attack on Stanlingard exhausted their resources. And they got owned by D-Day.

or conspiracy theorist believe it's because he lost control of the spear of longinus ( destiny ).

but Hitler wasn't crazy, upset perhaps @ a bunch of old men for not letting him into the art school. But the man was a master of propaganda speech and quite an amazing strategist in terms of war.

Of course his tyranical rule over the jews isn't being overlooked, but the man was actually pretty damn smart.

A lot of interesting things to say you guys probably don't know. For instance the first time Hitler tried to take over he was put in jail. But, he was given a relativly light sentence, and refocused on winning elections rather then uprisings.

The catholic party supported him and the Vatican gave him diplomatic recognition, but then he banns the catholic party and kills the leaders off, ha.

Can't speak for his sanity.

If you want a detailed explanation why he lost the war it would be better to do a search.

Indeed he was crazy. He was a druggie (watch Discovery channel!) I read "Mein Kampf"... it was quite interesting. He had poured his own thoughts and opinions out onto paper, regarding his life story, rise to power and the power he held at that moment; to another person reading this however, they might think he is absolutely insane because of his thought processes.

Even if Hitler fell for his niece... people may not deem him crazy, because that is what he was brought up with... being the son of an abusive peddler. Others who absolutely abhore incest would disagree though...

I suppose it is all a matter of opinion. Your morals and values all play a part in deciding whether Hitler was actually insane or not.

(If the above seemed a bit vague and rushed, sorry! )

Hitler was a dose of reality for people at that time....a wake up call per say to the decline of society during that time period. He was able to do a lot of what he did because he was first and foremost a very cunning man who knew how to use what he has to the best of his ability. I think that a lot can be learned from him, Hitler's story definitely show a gradual decline of his sanity and by the end of WWII he (in my opinion) was no longer a sane man.

What helps make hitler an ideal choice for fuhrer was that germany was in a state of depression, because of the results of WWI. Germany should not have been blamed for the war; because of that though Hitlers ideas of revolution, and revolt had the german people eating right out of his hands.

Hiltler wasn't that special, he just took the easy way to develope a poor economy. Men like
bismarck revolutionised agriculture and then allocated the revenues to modernise the military, hitler only took advantage of the weak. The wealth that the economy saw was only temporary, and most of the countries he defeated was already in a weakened state. Hitler was so desperated thst he sought an alliance with japan and had the hipocracy to spread his race shit. He lost his empire because there was no real development only foolish ideals, they would have bankrupt sooner or later and the famine would have followed.

I will say this and this has bothered me for quite a while......
How does a man get to be the President of Germany and teach every German citizen that blue eyes and blond hair are the traits of the true German race and he himself is an Austrian......?.......How does that work out exactly?

Also I loved how he reinvented Jesus as "Jesus the Jew Killer....."


I don't think you can call him just the "president" of Germany... he was much much more than that.

Psychological repetition (play on the emotions, fear, hate, superstition etc.)...they psyche played a huge role in that (my opinion). Noticed how after watching the commercial a few times...for example, hamburger? suddenly you feel as if you're hungry and or you're craving for a hamburger? Or during WWII Japanese Americans were sent to Internment Camp....hope it makes sense, I'm really rushing as I type

i know a lot about that subject,he wasnt stupid at all,and he wasnt "crazy",
but at some point this leader who would have never gotten this kind of
attention in another period of german history,lost all sense of reality,
and send thousands of people into a worthless death.so he was kind of "crazy",
not even mentioning the race stuff.just like stalin and all the other dictators,
besides their ideas they all got kind of insane by the power they had.i think its
because those kind of people only get the chance to gain that much in certain unstable
times,but psychological they are far away from using it properly.

Hitler failed for two major reasons - The japanese brought america in too early, and he pissed off the russians.

Had he focused on europe first, let the japanese play with china, and ignore russia... the third reich might just still be around today.

Funny you should mention that because I'm eating hamburger right now......

Anyways, one more thing I have to say, and that is, that the Holocaust was a major catastrophe I wonder how come almost no one has heard of the Holodomor?



It could be because Holodomor did not last as long as the Holocaust and it was not as cruel as the Holocaust...I mean death by stravation is nothing to overlook but it is not as epidemic as what Hitler did. Also, I think on a small scale all over the world this is still happening (Africa, Laos etc.) and a lot of time people choose to over look or pretend not to be aware.

Hitler was indeed insane but that doesn't make him any less smart(Not that I'm praising what he did.). Holodormor? I'll have to research on that. I honestly never heard of that before. I wish people would consider Japan and how evil they were as well. No one really talks about that. Of course, I'm talking their nationalistic days of about 1910 to 1945. I hope I don't sound racist to any of the Japanese people here. People I know in Korea still talk about how much injustice they faced. They came to our country burning our books, forcing us to speak Japanese, experimenting on us, etc. That's why I feel like the Rising Sun flag is no different than the Swastika but I see a lot of this everywhere.

I may get flamed for this but I'll state it anyways......
Hitler was one of the greatest leaders ever in the history of the world.......No one can deny that fact and if you do then you are admitting your own ignorance........
Although he was out of his mind he turned Germany from a third-world into a major world power by the end of WWII.........


No he was not, anyone who says Hitler was great is kinda a moron, now the defination of a ood ruler is a ruler that is helpful to ALL his subjects, alienating a certain race and waging war created a void that needed to be filled by the unemplyed. No doubr he had some pretty damn good tactics and a scary charisma but as a leader I can think of no one that I dislike more

BTW SWASTIKA IS A HOLY HINDU SYMBOL BUT HITLER SHIT ALL OVER IT <_<
