Was Hitler A Great Man?

very touchy subject and i expect a lot of fireworks from people

But guys cant we equate Germany's greatness mostly to the effort of the man Adolf Hitler?

Not a very good history student but i ve always been of the opinion that that country is where it is today cos of Hitler

Would i be right to say dat inspite of what the whole world think about him he was one of the best things that happened to Germany?

Personally 4 me i think he was. though i ve not read enough about it to back up this opinion, i stand to be corrected and educated

And pls people try not to insult urselfs, constructive criticism would be well appreciated.

Well an hierachy was established with the natives at the very bottom

the heirachy was created by the united kingdom. the indian servants still had minimal rights from what i've seen.

hitler was both nationalistic and egotistic.

Ah, my family was frustrated out of the country, so I know what you are talking about. You are at the receiving end of the Nigerian government's foolishness that's why your post did not depict Nigeria as great and to people like the poster you would be termed "sentimental". But the poster Don1deMaco do and did not live in the era of Hitler's reign that is why he can "keep sentiments out of this issue."

yeah i agree with u about the Red Indians, was trying to make a correlation, maybe i was outta line, like i said in my first post, its meant to educate not for people to start trading words, and im not interested in sentiments either, just plain facts.

like i said ive not done my complete homework on the topic reason for posting this thread, hoping people like u with facts/info would make my research easier. i know its a sensitive topic one of the reasons why i pointed it out in my first post. ur opinion and ur reasons is all i m interested in really, no be say i be german or i dey related to the guy. just want to know what people think dats all

Maybe you dont have a job because you dont know the difference between "leave" and "live"

you leave in Lagos, Nigeria?

and obviously you dont know anything about Hitler which is why you are comparing embezzlers to a mass murderer

I think is better to have people like Hitler than those bundle of criminals we have as leaders. come to think of it, those of you who say hitler is bad, is this,and that, do you realy leave in nigeria to experience what we face every day: Graduating from school no job, geting an apartment to hide your head is a problem and if eventualy you find one no water, no light from PHCN, AND THOSE OF US FROM POOR BACK GROUND every family member is looking up to you because the all suffer to put you through school. Dawn! what a hell country!!. moreover you summit your resume in a coy after passing their aptitude test and the start asking, who introduce you. if because i do not have any body in high place am not qualify to get a job any where i wonder what you think i should be thinking of my self being alife in the mist of all this chaos or being dead as of the days of hitler and let other poor people like myself be free in the future. what is the difference, are we not celebrating thieves in nigeria.

@poster,

I don't think if you were at the brunt of Hitler's pent up frustrations and wickedness (where you have to live in concentration camps to be eventually murdered in cold blood prior to starvation of you and your family because of your race/nationality) you would be writing what you just wrote.

I do not also think you would attribute greatness to wickedness if you were a descendant of people that suffered because of Hitler. Just imagine yourself in the shoes of these people and find time to listen to their stories.

Hitler is one of the greatest men that ever lived. The same year he was TIME Man Of The Year, he was also mentioned by top British MPs as a man far ahead of their time.

A lot of people go to various sources to find out information about Hitler but never to the man himself. The only way to really know Adolf Hitler is by reading his book "Mein Kampf" (My Struggle) which was actually written by him during his lifetime.

Hitler killed a lot of Jews not just for the joy of it but because he hated anything that came out of Africa and he hated Africans because during his research into Genetics and Eugenics, he found out that only Russians, Africans and People of mixed races had the natural, physical and mental ability that could supercede that of the Germans if properly harnessed.

He took the Russians as his brothers but went all out against the half-castes (which in Germany and Austria were referred to as the Rhineland Bastards) and the Africans (who were primarily Zulus, Moors and Jews).

There were Jews of pure European or Caucasian race in Europe, Hitler never bothered about them. In fact, the European Jews were so much a part of the Extermination of 6 million mixed and African Jews in Europe that they formed an advisory and support political group known as "Jews For Hitler" through which they provided valuable information on how to track down and exterminate non-European Jews.

Anyhow, that's that. The man was trying to take care of issues that may stand as future barriers to his people. Just the same way Christopher Columbus exterminated millions of Native Americans. Today, the man is a national icon.

I wish one of the Egyptian Pharaohs had foreseen that the Europeans would become such a burden on us and had tried to wipe out every single Caucasian by the year 15,000 AD. I also hope that when Africa finally achieves greatness, somebody would remember to do it and they'll be remembered as a truly great person. I wish us an African Hitler.

Germany doesn't have the best economy in Europe,it has the biggest economy by virtue of the fact that among developed Europeans nations,it has the largest population.

For instance,Switzerland,Luxembourg and Liechenstein have higher per capita incomes than most Western European nations but they don't have the largest of economies.

That being said,Hitler has nothing to do with the current state of the German economy.

Well, they didn't come all by themselves and at their own will did they? They were no different from the untrained Nigerians that were given guns carted to Burma by the Colonialists to kill during the General European Tribal Wars started by Hitler himself.

Are you saying that today the Burmese should hate Nigerians for coming to fight on their land?

It doesn't work that way. The Indians are our friends. The true enemy is the devil using them.

@topic

Hitler was no doubt a Nationalist; he claims all he did was for the benefit of the German people.

Now, the real question is this - How far do you go in the name of being a Nationalist ?

Hitler murdered thousands of jews in gas chambers - all in the name of Nationalism

Hitler invaded Poland, France etc and was on the verge of approaching Moscow, but for the blizzard

and the bravery of Russian General Zhukov. All of this for the sole benefit of the German people.

I am not against leaders looking out for their people, but not to the point where others are gased in

chambers as done by the Nazis.

@doyin13

With Time's Man of the Year,the title connotes positive qualities but arguably less so than [i]great man[/i]I think Hitler has also been Time's Man of the Year.

I think both sides of the argument are technically equally plausible but in common ordinary usage,greatness tends to be used in respect of "good people."

@I-man

I feel your argument. . .

But you can see parallels with the Time Man of the year award. . .Nominally Man of the Year implies something positive

but they have seen fit to issue the award to some 'EVIL MEN'. I guess it is the Time's prerogative to whom they give their award

but there you go. . .

Can the epithet,great ,be applied to a person whose contributions were decisively destructive?

I guess its a semantic question but greatness is more appropriately applied to people whose contributions were largely positive.Someone can have a greatly destructive effect to humanity but that doesn't qualify such a person as great.Greatness as applied to persons is different from its application to actions

To hold otherwise would entail describing folks like Cho,David Koresh and even Anini as great men

abi?

Either way the question ask if he was a "great" person not whether his "policies" helped Germany's economy.

what exactly is the viewpoint? Explain to me.

How about we look through the eyes of the caucasians who proposed Aparatheid and see how "great" it was for the black south africans thru their "viewpoint"

Instead of yaning dust, how about you enlighten me on the other "viewpoint"? What possible excuse can you have for killing millions of people? Seriously, let me know.

Is this a joke?

From "one view point", what other view point is there? What was the point of Achwitz?

Lol @ the German prespectives, alot of Germans are ashamed of that time in their history. Better dont go off running your mouth in public.

As for perferring Hitler over swindlers, maybe if he had killed you and your family,, you wouldnt be saying such garbage.

At least swindlers just embezzle money as opposed to having someone send you to chambers to burn just because you are of a different group of people. It's people like you that sold your brothers to slave ships for a mirror.

I fear some of you people.

How much do you know about Hitler before crowning him a great man? What made him a great Man? In what aspect are you regarding him to be great? How do you grade a man to be great? Well, you would be right because even most people regard Satan to be a great man.

You are wrong in your view, Hitler is not a great man rather one of the sons of the devil (ROTHSCHILD) Do you know that one of the sons of ROTHSCHILD is the father of Hitler? Do you also know that ROTHSCHILD is a Jew? Suppose i tell you those Jews the media claimed Hitler killed are not real Jews? Sure you are going to doubt me on this one. Do you know that Hitler gave up and ran away during the war but the Media informed the public he was killed and disappeared.

Brother, i advice you search deeper.You want to know the secret rulers of this world? Start with the ROTHSCHILD FAMILY and you be shock with your findings. In answer to your question NO!! HITLER IS NOT A GREAT MAN.

Hilter has been demonised by the west.

I have taken my time to read history from the German perspective

I urge you to do the same and make up your mind.

Hitler was a nationalist and should not be crucified for that

We should not judge people/history from one viewpoint

I'll rather have an Hilter than all these swindlers we have running our affairs now

The difference between Hitler and the other war-mongering pieces of scum is that Hitler lost the war.

The others (Herod, Alexander the great, all the conquerors in history) don't deserve the worship they get.

ummm. Germany is the Biggest economy in EUROPE.

They generate Biggest power 587,000GW while your country generate 3000MW. doom and tragedy indeed.

Hilter was not the one Bombing HIS OWN country but US, UK RUSSIA.

I Don't think David had world domination in his plans, just obtaining the promised land, nothing more.

you'll recall he didn't try to claim the land occupied by their arch-enemies the Philistines

Hitler deviated from the plan my attempting to fulfil his racial masterplan, the elimination of the Jews and other undesirables like gypsies.

Blacks even ranked lower than the Jews in his eyes in terms of racial 'inferiority'.

All the other names above brought glory to their countries. Hitler, however, ultimately brought doom and tragedy to his country.

Hilter is controversial figure.

1. USA wiped-out the red-indians but nobody was able to save them.

2. Europeans attempted to wipe-out AFRICANS but Malaria saved us.

3. Hilter also attempted to wipe-out his enermies but allied forces saved them.

meanwhile OBJ wiped-out his OWN people: ODI-village

You're right, you're not a very good history student.

Please, learn about issues before you form up an opinion.

Most importantly, Hitler is long dead and you're alive. have a splendid New Year!
