I was once told that the best way to understand the opposition is to watch them. However, since I could not watch Hitler, I decided to read him. 700 Pages of Madness; that was Mein Kampf. Hitler begins by telling people who he is, his story. He speaks of himself as a child, as a cute little boy wanting to paint and not being allowed to.At Hitler’s time in history, in 1918, Germany had lost World War I, and the country was in massive turmoil. They were falling apart. The parliament was doing nothing, and the government was little more than a joke. But then, Hitler promised something new. The National Socialist Party. They were new, they were interesting. Hitler looked around, and the found an enemy for himself to latch onto.
Charles Darwin prepared Germany for Hitler. In his book On the Origin of Species, Darwin says that there are different levels of people, and then states that only the best must survive. Hitler then states in his book that he has found that master race: the Arians.
All who are not of the good race in this world are chaff.1
