I don't feel like we can really be experts on Hitler. He's beyond most of our time. Yes there is his book, a few of his visual and audio recordings, a ton of movies, etc. We don't know him and his supporters personally. We're relying on second-hand accounts.

My summation of Hitler based on those accounts: He was a nationalist, "Germany First" perhaps. He was a member of the "National Socialist German Workers' Party." He invaded Poland, France, and a bunch of other countries ...

Ok nevermind, there's always more to learn about Hitler. A lot of people know that Hitler invaded Poland but until today I never bothered to ask why. I assumed it was over land and natural resources but https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Invasion_of_Poland has a slightly different view. Apparently, he was trying to annex a German majority area of Poland and claimed he was defending those ethnic Germans from persecution in his proclamations/propaganda. That kind of sounds like the Crimea/Ukraine/Russia thing we have going on in more modern times. Now I supported Russia's annexation of Crimea but not so sure about Germany's invasion of Poland, especially the non-German majority areas.'

The Molotov–Ribbentrop pact and the invasion of Poland marked the beginning of a period during which the government of the Soviet Union increasingly tried to convince itself that the actions of Germany were reasonable, and were not developments to be worried about, despite evidence to the contrary. On 7 September 1939, just a few days after France and Britain joined the war against Germany, Stalin explained to a colleague that the war was to the advantage of the Soviet Union, as follows:

A war is on between two groups of capitalist countries ... for the redivision of the world, for the domination of the world! We see nothing wrong in their having a good hard fight and weakening each other ... Hitler, without understanding it or desiring it, is shaking and undermining the capitalist system ... We can manoeuvre, pit one side against the other to set them fighting with each other as fiercely as possible ... The annihilation of Poland would mean one fewer bourgeois fascist state to contend with! What would be the harm if as a result of the rout of Poland we were to extend the socialist system onto new territories and populations?

A third party laughing about warring nations "weakening each other" seems to happen a lot in history. I don't think Russia's laughing so much now after the human losses they suffered in World War II.

I've been studying both world wars for over 30 years. The second world war was a direct result of the first in my opinion. France went crazy on punishing Germany despite Britain and America telling them not to. As a result the German people really suffered, they were so poor, a loaf of bread was more valuable than a car. Google Germany in the 1920s and 30s, you'll begin to realise why there were so many angry people wanting Germany to make big changes.

Hitler is ALWAYS portrayed as evil, but the truth is very different. He wasn't evil, he was a normal guy, he loved animals. Everybody that worked for him liked him. He wasn't a born politician though, he was very much like Donald Trump in my opinion. He needed a cause, a target to keep himself relevant, he only knew one way.

Another thing that is NEVER mentioned is that people in concentration camps were free to leave. If they could get a visa, they could go. Britain and all their allies REFUSED to take anybody. At first the camps were just to detain them, then they grew into work camps. Only towards the last part of the war when Germany had no spare food did they start not caring about them, letting them starve to death then burning the bodies.

I would not excessively sanitize Hitler. I'm of the opinion that he was a Satanist/devil worshipper especially considering his choice of suicide date. He also allegedly believed in reincarnation. And the funny thing for those comparing Trump to Hitler is that he does fit the "reincarnation timeline" if you add up time in the womb and all that but several other millions of people were also born around that same time. (Trump also supposedly has a nice copy of Hitler's book My New Order according to his ex-wife Ivana) .

Hitler's personal involvement with witchcraft, his associations with Mengele and the other SS doctors, and his suicide all push him into the "clearly evil" category for me. How he handled the war and the prisoners of war that's secondary to his religious and personal beliefs about human conduct and human rights (how to treat your fellow man). The wikipedia article on his religious views sums him up as anti-Christian. The evil label sticks quite well to him ... I'm kind of shocked you would label him as "normal" as I don't believe normal people lead powerful nations. Yes, they're still human and prone to all the sicknesses of the human condition. Plenty of people love animals. If he was normal I don't think he would have been that famous/infamous.

Is Donald Trump the reincarnation of Hitler?

Great post, that's more or less what I've picked up, too. But I didn't know about the visas thing, they really would've just let them go?

Early on in the war, absolutely. Things got nasty later on, so I don't even know if Germany asked again. Why would they when we already refused?

http://www.history.ac.uk/reviews/review/221

"London's work goes beyond September 1939, when all issued visas were cancelled on the start of war. She emphasises the government's reluctance to admit Jewish refugees during the war and the consistent government line that the rescue of Jews was not a war aim. In fact, the government maintained that the only way to rescue European Jewry was for the Allies to win the war in the shortest possible time. This is the most contentious part of the book and the section that with which a critic such as Rubinstein, would focus upon. London has very much followed the lead of Kushner in his criticisms of British inaction when it came to the issue of Jews during the war. Britain did not want to be seen to be fighting a war on behalf of Jewry is the standard accusation levelled. "

Just heard about a radical extremist feminist "Megalia" group from South Korea comparable to ISIS/ISIL and Kathy Griffin. Now you know why Park Geun Hye got impeached. :lol:

"few days ago, Nexon terminated contract with famous korean voice actor because she declared support of 'daughters of megalia'. DoM is new feminism ideology extremist group who promoting violence against men and planned abortion of all boy childs. the feminists went full mad and hundreds, thousands of famous celebrities, artists, authors, intellectuals starting to openly support DoM and demand feminism revolution and boycott of Nexon.

the public panicking, the whole fucking nation devided, internet, college is now battleground of DoM supporters and anti-feminist resistance. fucking biggest shitstorm ever seen. politicians went radio silence and the media went full retard.

this is the time, the quote from the bible. "a person's enemies will be those of his own household.". it's now real in here. a fucking culture civil war between men and women.

famous artists, voice actors, webtoon authors declared full support of DoM and there's panic everywhere. no one is our friend. you can't trust anyone. news magazine companies picked sides and beating each other now. even famous independent media/news companies supporting DoM. every fucking korean community forum, boards are now battleground against DoM outbreak.

this is the age of revelations. the end is nigh."

Fuck notifications from cellphones apps! They always seem to have them turned on by default and they're accompanied by extremely annoying loud noises. Text messages are bad enough! Hate annoying notifications that keep you up at night. I think YouTube overrode my notifications volume (off/mute) and pissed me off just now!

Yeah I need to get another phone (I do have that scheduling when to mute notification feature on this old phone, thanks for telling me about it though cuz I didn't know about it).

I was looking at a few more today at Amazon. I saved a comparison list on May 1st and back then the product pages showed "Date First Available on Amazon". Now all the phones don't have that specific information! I called into Amazon Customer Support (actually I had them call me) and I was pleasantly surprised at the excuse their front line agent used on me.

They explained that back then on May 1st, one of the phones was brand new so they were highlighting/emphasizing the "Date First Available on Amazon". Now that the phone is over a month old, they decided to obscure that information because it's no longer a key selling point. :lol:

Anyway that phone is getting poor/average reviews (glad I didn't buy it back then). And I figure I can still look at the oldest reviews to determine when the cellphones were first released so I won't demand that they absolutely put that information back on the product listings.
