2012 anti-Hitler rage. How logical is it?

Advertisements

We live in 2012. And when you open your TV or open a news web page, you read a new article against Hitler almost every week. Why Hitler was bad, why Hitler did that, why Hitler did the other et cetera, et cetera… Every day you are bombarded with History Channel’s documentaries or reports of journalists writting something about the German leader who once made the whole planet go at war…

How logical is that, given the times we live in and the current star date?

Yes, we all know by now what Hitler did. BUT how logical is it to hear over and over again attacks against Hitler and special reports on how flawed he was, how utterly evil he was, how how how…

Recently a report from the person who wrote the book “Hitler’s Private Library” described the thousands of books the German leader had in his library [source]. And the report actually mentioned the vast number of books in an ironical way, stating that we should actually laugh at how Hitler was “ignorant” (and, thus, had the need to read so many book) !!! WTF?!? Really? Is that what you’ve got to say after knowing that the man had thousands of books and read every minute he had free? Really?!? How many books hane YOU read you idiot?

Ooops! Some people DID think Hitler was good back then…!!!

Similar attempts include people trying to tell us that he was not actually a vegeterian, that he did smoke secretely in his bathroom, that he did not pass the first laws to protect animals, that he did not pass the first laws against smoking, that he did not help conduct the FIRST research which linked smoking with cancer, that he was not faithfull to his loved one but fucked any woman he found (thanks History Channel for the so much INTERESTING documentaries!), that he did not found Volkswagen and that he did not create the autobahns…

Was Hitler simply wrong not to attack his enemies at Dunkirk, or maybe they weren’t his “enemies” after all?

Oh, and let me not forget my favorite one: Hitler made a “mistake” not to destroy the whole army of England at Dunkirk and not to invade England after that. And of course it was the “heroism” of England which made him not do that. (and in no way the fact that Hitler and all too many British Parliament members considered themselves allies against the communists!) …

Accusing Hitler as evil is one thing (and JUSTIFIED one, let me not be misunderstood). But this mass attempt to nullify his whole existence into something which was “bad” in every aspect is just… wrong and hypocritical!

OK.

Let’s all shout loudly once and for all: HITLER WAS EVIL!

There. Did that take care of your problems? Do you now feel better as citizens or as individuals? Have you taken care of your personal need for blaiming someone for everything bad existing in the world? DO you feel relaxed and pleased?

What is the REAL NEED of having someone to blame and point the finger at constantly? What is the REAL NEED of saying accusations over and over again for someone who has died for so long?

Didn’t we had other EVIL people in the past? (yes, Stalin, I am talking about you) Don’t we have other BAD people anymore? Don’t we have other EVIL people killing other people today? Don’t we have other CRUEL leaders leading their peoples into destruction just for personal gain now? Don’t we have LYING leaders leading their countries into unjustified wars as we speak? (yes, USA, I am talking about you…) Don’t we have other genocides which happened besides WWII? (yes, Turkey, I am talking about you) Didn’t we have other EVIL doctors performing atrocious experiments on innocent people? (yes, CIA doctors, I talking about you – see Doctors, Medicine, Horror) Don’t we have anything else to point our finger to?

Let’s face it.

Hitler helps us from seeing reality in front of our eyes…

In a sense, he is the excuse we always wished for…

Spiros Kakos (or Spyros Kakos or Spyridon Kakos) [Σπύρος Κάκος] is a thinker located in Athens, Greece. He has been the Chief Editor of Harmonia Philosophica since its inception. Spiros has a diploma in Chemical Engineering, an MSc in Advanced Materials' Technology, an MBA in Decisions' Science, a phD in the use of conductive polymers in PCB industry and is still learning. He also worked as a technical advisor and a researcher in the Advanced Materials sector for many years in the past. In his free time he develops software solutions and contributes to the open source community. He is the creator of Huo Chess, one of the smallest micro-chess programs ever that is perfect for educational purposes. He believes that science and religion are two sides of the same coin and is profoundly interested in Religion and Science philosophy, as well as the philosophy of the irrational. His philosophical work is mainly concentrated on an effort to free thinking of "logic" and reconcile all philosophical opinions under the umbrella of the "One" that Parmenides - one of the first thinkers - visualized. Since our thought is dictated by our assumptions, the only way to free it and know cosmos as it is, is to think irrationally and destroy everything we have built. The "Harmonia Philosophica" articles program is the tool that will accomplish that. Life's purpose is to be defeated by greater things. And the most important things in life are illogical. We must fight the dogmatic belief in "logic" if we are to stay humans. We should stop thinking in order to think. Credo quia absurdum! View all posts by skakos
