Good paper back book,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Mein Kampf (Paperback)
Hitler did some bad things but as a political figure he was one interesting and amazing guy. This book is an eye opener. It really helps you appreciate just how visionary he was seeing and carrying out his own future, and writing it out before hand. He doesn't write like some stark, boring politician. His writing is full of passion and artistry, and you really get a personal feel for his background, and views. Everything he writes down has so much meaning to him and you can really feel that. I was impressed. Given the right background and historical setting, I can image how this book was inspiring to many german people. In terms of staunch individuality, he makes a great political figure, he has views and he doesn't care how radical they are, he believed in and carried out everything he promised in this book. It's too bad we don't have politicians like this anymore.

"It's too bad we don't have politicians like this any more." Congratulations on being a fascist.

No. You have only misinterpreted my statement. Greatness is not measured by good or evil. Greatness is. Fascist or not, Hitler was a great leader. His charisma was unparalleled. Once in power everyone answered to him and him alone. He was a commanding leader. That's what makes a leader great. I don't care if it's Genghis Khan or Teddy Roosevelt, greatness is greatness. Compared to now, it'd be nice to see a president with some real backbone, especially if one as ugly as Hitler were elected by sheer fact of merit or charisma. Isn't that what a leader is? Isn't that what he should be? Not some ethnic version of the Kennedy family like the Obama's. Or a "Good 'Ol Boy" George W. I shudder to think of what comes after Obama... In fact I weep for our leadership in its entirety which has become nothing but dancing puppets acquiescing to the orders of an invisible plutocracy who probably rank in terms of evil with Hitler or more.

So..Hitler showed 'backbone' by exterminating innocent men, women, and children?

"Once in power everyone answered to him and him alone. He was a commanding leader. That's what makes a leader great." That's what I mean by backbone... Please, I am not trying to glorify the extermination of the Jews, homosexuals, mentally ill and handicapped, or any of the minorities persecuted. I never glorify any of the crimes against humanity committed by the NAZI party, the context of my review was leadership.
How do you define backbone? Do you think it takes backbone to kill men? Being named Barry I'm guessing you're a man. Have you ever had to kill a man Barry? If it was necessary, could you even do it then? My point is not whether or not you are a ruthless killer Barry. My point is that, it probably could be argued that the very act of killing, yes even murder, takes backbone. But that is off topic.
However, keep these comments coming. I enjoy brutally shooting them down and burying them into the ground, but to give you an idea of how much, only slightly more than I like pooping, and this is because pooping can be physically painful sometimes. Though I could imagine this thread getting painful to comment on soon.

"Once in power everyone answered to him and him alone. He was a commanding leader. That's what makes a leader great." What you call backbone is also known as fascism.
