5.0 out of 5 stars brilliant required reading, April 26, 2009
This review is from: Mein Kampf (Hardcover)
It's not fashionable to admit that one has read something written by Adolf Hitler. But, I did, in order to obtain balance from the other literature I've read and to better understand the psychological conflicts within the man. First, Hitler was no intellectual lightweight. I found that his analyses of military, political, historical, and economic affairs was quite insightful! Not bad for an artist from Linz (beautiful town by the way). Hitler seems to lose rationality and experiences emotional flooding when he discusses the aristocracy, the marxists, and the jews. odd, in that it was the marxists who were supposed to rise up against the aristocracy. karl marx was jewish i believe, so the source of his hatred against the marxists might have been from that angle. it's amazing how all throughout the book, when it asserts a claim, he backs it up with brilliant logic and cites examples to support it. always, that is, except where the jewish people are concerned. there, the flood gates are opened and the ravages of hatred are unleashed. given the level of hatred for marxists expressed in this book, i'm stunned that a brilliant tyrant like stalin would ever have trusted hitler's promise not to invade russia. i had hoped to find more information on the financial sources that supported hitler's rise but it certainly wasn't to be found here. this is heavy reading and, frankly, i don't know if it is because the man was evil or because i approached the book believing that the author might be evil, but, it wasn't easy to read. nevertheless, for anyone who wishes to study history, ww1 or ww2, jewish studies, or political science (and, maybe even psychopathy), this ought to be required reading. Oh, another downside, I felt that the organization was lacking and he rambled.
