Be a bit more criticle towards the source...

But on the other side of things, he never did much over in Asia. So that might be why they don't really see him for what he did

People can sit back and praise other historal dickwads for a few things, like Ghengis Khan and Qin Shi Huang. Hilter isn't off-limits.


Exactly. People only focus on the bad things they did until enough time passes. Great accomplishments are great accomplishments. It doesn't follow that I'd want Hitler to come back and lead again, because I wouldn't, but much can be learned from many famous leaders in the past, whether they were considered villains or heroes.

What's the point of learning about history if you're not learning FROM it? It's more than just a story. It's humankind's collective experience. It's a total waste to lump history into "good" and "bad" and ignore all you consider bad. It would be like discarding all the scientific data gleaned from the human experiments that were done. You might as well use the data.

Go ahead and rage. Even go on a rampage. Even if you kill 100 or 200 people, that act will never as historically significant as Hitler's accomplishments since it's just another mass shooting. Hitler was no ordinary person. His story was unique and his achievements were many. We wouldn't even be talking about him as badly if he led Germany to victory.

Heil Hitler! Not. Really, asians are strange, though. I find it more funny than disturbing (because I'm not there lol )

He was a nut. His own officers repeatedly tried to kill him, and hoped to leave the country open for deals with those accommodating British who were so willing to compromise at the beginning.
(Might have had something to do with his aberrant mood-swings going from glory to defeat to paranoia at the drop of a hat once the hard wartime work didn't go as promised after the rally speeches--Like when he at one point wanted Berlin to go out in a blaze of glory, by burning it down with the citizens still in it, rather than let the Russians get it.)

I'm assuming this is trolling, but it's so lacking in the general troll cliche's, or the adrenaline of campy hammerhead subtlety, that I'm taking the 1% chance that it's genuine nuttery. Or naivety/wishful historical-illiteracy, which is what the thread is about in the first place.
As for the latter, Rod Serling already covered it:

I never thought I'd say this but Ejanss is right. It is absurb to entertain these ideas. The man isn't a victim or misunderstood. Unequivocably he destroyed Germany and led to it having to be split it in two for decades. He was a monster and a psychopath who rose to the top by exploiting a nation ravaged by a world war. And yes, he was quite paranoid and delusional. Mostly those that revere him think he's badass but he was just a loudmouth racist that decived a nation and murdered millions of people.

Ghengis Khan was a mere conqueror he never pretended to be otherwise. And Qin Shi Huang's only real downside was his obsession with immortality. The first emperor of China brought a country ravaged by war peace, economic reform that vastly increased the wealth of said country. Sure the man didn't care for the myths, lies, and outright fantasy some scholars of the day were pedalling but there is no evidence he did any more then imprison a few and burn some books. I mean we do the same to anyone else trying the same thing.

I can't really believe you're comparing the best tactician of his day and the first emperor of China to a man like Hitler. Did your momma feed you lead as a child?

Dude you know those 2 guys aren't exactly saints. They are just has bad has Hitler. The only difference between them and Hitler is that Hitler didn't succeed in winning history, but they did. Since I no a scholar on Hitler I would no claim he did amazing things. I do know the other two did amazing shit, while still being just has bad has Hitler. That being say you have to admit Hitler did had inhuman charisma.
He made an entire country do has he will. That pretty impressive by itself. That Hitler only redeeming quality has a leader. Because everything after that he fuck up. While the others didn't. No I not defending Hitler. He still shit. Charisma means nothing if you lack proper judgment and decision-making too. Something the other two did had.
This a bit rude dude. In more quantitative terms, ~10% of the men who reside within the borders of the Mongol Empire as it was at the death of Genghis Khan may carry his Y chromosome, and so ~0.5% of men in the world, about 16 million individuals alive today, do so.


Ghengis Khan was a mere conqueror

There also the fact he has a monument. Call Genghis Khan Equestrian Statue. Pretty sure Mongolia respect the dude while still being an inhuman cum.
