I'm with Independent Tre, Hitler was the right guy, at the right time. There's always the potential for another Hitler too. Germany was still bitter after WWI, and the sanctions placed upon them crippled their economy. Those seeds of discontent laid there, and other European countries took it for granted that Germany was controlled, when really there was no super power in Europe, it was up for grabs at the time. Germany initially played their hand better than the other countries. They got the drop on everybody else. A side of me respects them for it. As far as the "evil" aspect of it, was he really so "evil" when you consider there's a LOT of people who hate or are suspiscious of Jews today, as they were then? Then it was more open I believe. I don't think he was evil as much as he was a product of his enviroment. All throughout Europe people had and still have negative outlooks towards Jews and "others."
On the other hand, economics plays a role too, cuz when times are bad, people look for someone to blame, the Jews are all too easy. Even now, countries that were enemies of Germany during the WW years, have segments of their population embracing Nazism. Russia has the highest percentage of Neo Nazi Skinheads now, and the goverment just banned Mein Kampf. Even Poland has Nazi Skins now. Who would have thought 50 years after WW2, those countries would have a significant portion of their population taking a liking to Hitler's ideology? I wouldnt be surprised that with a Black president, and a mediocre economy, questionable immigration policiec, I wouldn't be surprised if out of one of the major political parties, emerges a Hitler-Lite.
