Most will not read this but . . .,
This review is from: Mein Kampf (Paperback)
As the review title states most people will put this book face down and refuse to read it because of the author. As other reviewers have stated, this book probably shaped the political, social and economic environment of the latter 20th century like no other. As you read and analyze, based on the knowledge of the outcome, one can only scratch the surface of how insane this person and his ideas were but still very much alive in the world today.
In the United States the instant association of Hitler is linked to the white supremist movements, but the same philosophy is also present in the feminist movements, pro-abortion lobby, the compartmentilization of cultures in the differing diversity programs etc. Unfortunately most are afraid to read this book but if they do these associations and the parallelism are readily apparent.
This book should be required reading in any history program but it never will be.

Mr. Sample: The affirmation of women's or minority groups' rights to equal treatment and the support for abortion in certain situations (rape; danger to the life of the mother) is not the same as a half-baked and murderous doctrine of racial superiority justifying a war of revenge, enslavement of whole peoples, and mass extermination.
