Hey Larsen,

I don't agree with you but I want to know why you have this opinion. What do you like about this book ?

Mein Kampf is German for "mine camp" and this is a story about a group of underground workers who dig coal during the day and fight right wing trolls during the night. It is a morality tale about how shallow the nationalist mind is, and how these nationalist trolls are like little goslings looking for a King Troll to follow. That's what I liked about it but it was a few years ago that I read it.

There are 2 books I was unable to complete...This one and 'Battlefield Earth'...I came close with the latter, but this one was completely unreadable...I tried to read it in German, but there was just no fucking way...Such tripe...

I started reading this a couple of years ago but didn't have time to finish, even though the part I read was fascinating.

 

I thought it was quite interesting to get into the mind, not just of Hitler, but probably of many German nationalists of that period.

 

Because what the Nazis did was so comprehensively evil that only diseased minds can today say anything good about it, we tend to avoid trying to see how the world looked to proto-fascists during that period. We just dismiss it as 'evil', the way we dismiss ISIS today.

 

But this is wrong. If you want to understand the world, you've got to try to understand the subjective viewpoints of the players in it. The typical Nazi supporter did not think, "Ha ha ha , how can I wreak death and destruction upon the planet and cause the maximum of human suffering?"  He had genuine grievances. Not everything he said about his enemies -- Jews, intellectuals, socialists, Communists, liberals  -- was entirely false.

 

If you don't understand how these people thought, you'll not understand why Hitler called his party the National Socialist German Workers Party, or why the Nazi political programme stole many of the Socialists' clothes. (Leading today to the ridiculous claim by some that the Nazis were "left wing".)  Hitler was not stupid, as is evident from reading his book. Although some people act like 'intelligence' = 'virtue', that's not true.

Mein Kempf translates to "My fight". 

 

I have read this book and the second part, Zweites Buch. Both are very hard reads due to being poorly written and based on circular/flawed logic. However, if you really want to get into the mind of Hitler, this is the way.

Obsessed Duck615?  Seems my screen name is constantly in your head now.  Not to worry ...  It could be a lot worse.

I have only met 2 people who have read Mein Kempf. Both were white, very traditional, and old fashioned. Pretty safe to say that they were not Liberal.

People like bludog still idolize Hitler!!!

Show me explicit evidence that BluDog advocates the extermination of Jews. No opinions, no interpretations, no rhetoric... just explicit, word for word, concrete evidence. Should not be too hard to find if what you say is true.

That is not evidence.... This is your opinion. The two are not the same. Now, just go out and find some concrete evidence. Why can't you back up your claims with explicit, concrete evidence?

Translation.... My opinion is fact..Sorry but I dont view your opinions as fact (nor does anybody else but you). Keep dodging like a good little coward. You have no evidence just opinions which are not sufficient to back up claims.

I am not defending him/her. I just do not have respect for those like yourself who can't back up your claims/accusations. You do your cause no good by always reaching for shock value i.e, Hitler or Stalin. Comparing anyone on this forum to them is disingenuous to those who actually suffered the terrible wrath of those monsters.

No one has to do anything. I just do not respect those like yourself who do not have the smarts/character to back up their claims. Just because I do not respect you does not mean you should not be able to express your views. First amendment says nothing about quality of speech.

Its a matter of character. If I was to make the claim that you are a child molester, I would think that I would want to have some concrete evidence and not just running my mouth. Your whole censorship complaint is bogus because there is an almost infinite number of ways that you can express your views. Just because one avenue is closed does not say that you are out of options. Still a couple of million others out there.

Again, your opinions are no more valid than anyone else because you lack the smarts/character to back them up. Just more verbal diarrhea. Nothing that you say is of any value because there is no substance behind it. When called upon to back it up, you run like a coward. If you could supply some substance, you would have. 

 

BTW, there is nothing Liberal about respecting those that can back up what they say.

I see this is going nowhere, kinda of like your life loser. THAT IS A FACT. YOU KEEP DISRESPECTING OTHERS OPINIONS LIKE YOUR BUTT BUDDY BLUDOG.

I have a Phd and a great job, so life is good. I need not your approval. I am just imploring you to put some substance behind your claims. Nothing liberal or censorship about that. In short, you want affirmation and because I do not give it to you then you need to make accusations/name call. That really helps your cause....not.

My grandfather, incredibly Conservative man who fought in WWII, would laugh in your face. He had no respect for those who threw out accusations but could not substantiate it. "Common Sense" is code for "This is my opinion and I am too lazy to back it up, therefore you should agree with me".
