But the reason we see him as a hero today is because he won the war and Hitler instead loss.

Hitler killed six million innocent jews, the other two did not.
>>
>>281547
Probably not, the industrialized, intentional mass-murder of civilians was a pretty dumb thing to do, if he was going for "great legacy".
Then again by some theories that kinda just got out of hand.
Anyway, the next generation will be too occupied liking memes on snapchat to give a shit about the guy their great-grandfather might have fought for/against like, a million years ago, gramps.

They've practically already forgiven Genghis and Alexander.
They'll all be associated with their indirect contributions like the above.

We see him as a hero?

Mongolia certainly does.

After that, it's 50% "oh yeah, that's the guy who murdered all of those people, what a dick" and 50% "it's kind of cool how good that guy was at murdering large numbers of people."

I'm in the second camp.

History will not. Besides just killing Jews, Hitler did not many any lasting impacts on the world, like Napoleon with his laws, and Genghis Khan with his uniting the tribes and fucking up a good portion of the world, like the Middle East.

Genghis Khan was more widespread and can easily be considered the more brutal conqueror (especially considering he personally commanded and committed much of the acts), but people don't really give a moral fuck about him.

Nobody really sees genghis khan as a hero. It's more that nobody really cares anymore. And the main reason for that is that it was so far in the past that it is completely out of the collective memory of society. The further away in distance or time you are from something, the less real it feels and the less people care.

Ernst Jünger wrote of war as a sort of natural disaster, a horrible, but in no way avoidable occurrence where one just has to do one's best to get through it and hope to be alive when it's passed.

Seems like horse archery is one of those things you need to live and breathe to be any good at. Enter the steppe peoples, who rode a horse before they knew what sex was. Running down the soft, agricultural men who haven't got a chance of being that skilled in war.

Because to combat horse archers with antique technology you need to face them on your own terms with equally skilled and well-equipped forces and doing so was largely impossible at the time. They were utterly alien to the west in both motivation and means and so there wasn't a hard counter available besides taking them out of their element - but that was easier said than done because if they smelled a trap they'd just go raid someone else while the would-be trappers played catch-up. You really couldn't ask for a better method of warfare at the time.

Oh. I'm sorry. But due to the intense warfare of WW2, you had to innovate in order to one-up your enemy. So as a direct consequence of Hitler, technology prospered. He didn't do it himself but WW2 created the avenue for many kinds of research. Even in the medical field since the invaluable knowledge collected by the Germans on their experiments on the volunteer soldiers and then the various people that were under Germany that gave a vast pool of test subjects.

I dunno.

Even when he was Fuhrer and had the chance to have a harem like chad thundercock, he was still a gentleman and remained faithful to whatever girl he was seeing. The girls he dated weren't even 10/10. He was modest, and a romantic when he could of had a harem of 1000s of German girls.

He was a robot til the end. He was able to give charismatic speeches with the help of meth, but that was it. Accounts of personal meetings with Hitler gave the impression that he was shy, meek, and likely autistic. That's part of the reason why he hid his private life so much. I mean just look at that picture of him in WW1. Does that look like an alpha with leadership material?
>>
>>281800
>He couldn't write what he REALLY felt in his writings
How do you figure?

>his views of war were pretty fucked up
Odd, to the modern reader, surely, but I wouldn't call them fucked up.
Besides, have you read his other stuff? He was obviously a very feeling, sensible person, even in his novels, take Gläserne Bienen for example, that feeling of alienation, the closeness to nature, the sense of belonging and also longing for companionship in a "strange" world, that's intensely human.

Hitler had problems with girls his entire life. Before the first world war, he would have his friend stalk his crush and report to him what she did throughout the day. He never had a gf until he was in the nazi party, and was considered very shy and beta. There is a lot of evidence that points to Hitler being autistic.
>>
>>281816
>He was able to give charismatic speeches with the help of meth

Calling bullshit on that if you don't provide a source.

>I mean just look at that picture of him in WW1. Does that look like an alpha with leadership material?

He was a political genius by any measure. Within one year of getting into power he destroys everyone who opposes him and becomes absolute dictator and the people loved him for it. He had some serious skill in the political arena.
>>
>>281823
To add to that, I'm >>281820, I recently read that book of that US sniper guy who got shot by a friend of his recently, I found his casual descriptions of gunning down towelheads and being all giddy about it a lot creepier than anything I've ever read by Jünger.
Jünger's writings, to me, always had soul, pathos. There was a sort of mutual respect and honour for the enemy there, if you will. Completely missing in most modern accounts of war I've seen.

Then why was he never promoted to corporal? His regiment was constantly losing men, yet he kept getting passed for promotion due to lack of leadership ability. This is fucking corporal, not even an officer rank, yet he can't do it. He could give prepared speeches but that's it. Everything else he had to have help with politically. At his heart he was still the loner homeless bohemian. You don't radically change your personality like that. He was 25 years old when WW1 broke out.

Social skills are not that neccesary, politics is an profession full of autists anyway. He navigated the political scene very well. Just look how he outplayed Heugenberg, von Papen, the SA leadership and other troublemakers. All within a year, that is not the hallmark of some beta fuck.
>>
>>281872
Hitler was apparently good enough at his low-ranking job to survive the war. The messages he carried probably saved soldiers' lives.

Meanwhile Churchill was abysmal at his high-ranking WWI desk job which got thousands of men killed.

By the logic of not being good at what you're doing before becoming a leader translating into not being a good leader, Churchill should have been worse than Hitler and Mussolini.

>>281903
Political skills are more about being cunning, ruthless and proactive. Social skillz are only that important for middle-management.
>>
>>281666
Satan trips is right. I don't think of Genghis as a "hero" by any means, but I can recognize his immense contribution to history and think it's interesting how powerful a single man became.
Also, it's a little inspiring that he (allegedly) came up from a herder of only 5 horses to the Flail of God.

No one says Alexander was a shitty conqueror, but keep in mind he was literally handed one of the most advanced armies of the time and a plan to kick Persia in the dick from his father.
>>
>>281923
Ok lets assume you're right. But why for the first 29 years of his life was he such a beta fuck? What gave him the ability to radically transform like that?

I'm gonna stop posting because I'm tired and these captchas are pissing me off. But just consider what I said. It's quite the feat don't you think? If you studied his early life you would not expect that out of Hitler.

I don't think Gengis Khan was evil. Most of his slaughtering was retribution. For example the Khwarzmians or however you pronounce it he had originally simply tried to open trade with them but they repeatedly executed his ambassadors hence the invasion and brutality. Also everyone did it at the time, you had to look tough to survive it was just that Khan conquered so many places that his kill list snowballed. If a king of England had conquered as much as he did they would have looked just as bloody.

As for Napoleon nobody ever thought he was evil even when he was alive. He had great respect from his enemies. Hitler now is a different beast, he was actually trying to exterminate anyone who wasn't white which is most of the planet. Nothing to do with the war effort he just wanted to kill people.

Wanna know how I know that you know nothing about the era that you're talking about?

Hitler was a big proponent of "democratizing" the Wehrmacht in so far as merit-based promotions went. I find it very unlikely that his experiences in WW1 didn't have something to do with that.

>You don't radically change your personality like that. He was 25 years old when WW1 broke out.

Well I can't agree with you guys really. Certainly he isn't idolized as a hero, but more or like he's thought of as a badass, cool crazy guy.

No, on account of the Jews.

Napoleon didn't practice any kind of mass extermination. Hell, of the seven Wars of Coalition, five were defensive on Napoleon's part.

Genghis Khan, meanwhile, is generally forgiven because he was a barbarian from the steppes. No one expects much of a barbarian from the steppes. We had low expectations for him to begin with in terms of how a person should treat other people. Surprisingly he actually generally met it, though. His small acts of kindness or restraint stand out as a result.

Hitler, on the other hand...

Germany wasn't some backwater frontier. It was the center of Europe. It was a fully industrialized nation that had been industrializing along with the rest of Europe, keeping pace and even surpassing on occasion. It was for centuries the center of philosophy and science. It wasn't like Japan, which went from Medieval technology to becoming a Great Power in less than 100 years, and so was unreasonable to think that they would act any different.

Germany should have *known better*. Hitler should have known better. But he didn't. He reverted to a level of barbarity and cruelty that the rest of Europe had largely left behind, or at least had the decency to acknowledge as barbaric and cruel.

And thus, history will never forgive Hitler.

Additionally, at the end of the day, Napoleon surrendered before too much damage could be done to France, seeing the writing on the wall and understanding that an Emperor's first duty is to protect his people. Sure, he tried to stage a comeback, but again, when he knew he was beaten, he folded.

Hitler honestly wanted the German people to die for failing to win WWII.

>>282818
The term "Aryan" refers to an Indo-European group that originated somewhere in central to west Europe. They entirely migrated to India over the course of a few thousand years.

Hitler argued that there were Aryans who stayed behind in Europe, however, and these Aryans were the German people. However to him, both Vedic Aryans and German Aryans would, in fact, be Aryans: different branches of the same ethnically superior tree.

I think it depends.

If we ever get a regime with comparable motives - not necessarly "kill all jews" or nazis at all but anything ideologically comparable to nazism - history might emphasize different parts of him.

Our views of historical figures constantly change with the values of the society. Alexander the Great has been getting a bad wrap academically the last few decades since imperialism fell out of fashion, for example.

Changed the course of European history as we know.

WWII was one of the most significant events in human history and it is tied into the Cold war another hugely significant event.

When were they forgiven?
>>
>>285478

Effectively forgiven. Khan's reputation is primarily as "world's greatest conqueror" and not "butcher of entire civilizations." Napoleon is remembered as arguably the greatest general in history (certainly one of the greatest,) not usually as the guy who tried to pull off "on European neck a Frankish yolk." Although I will say I think comparing Napoleon to Hitler is insulting to Napoleon in numerous ways, not least that France was at least partly acting in self-defense, and didn't try to exterminate entire races.

Well for starters he didn't really conquer shit as much as just walk in pretty much undefended land, as soon as he got resistance Hitler was stopped.

Likely because the atrocities of the 21st century will greatly overshadow those of the 20th in both scale and brutality. So we will only look at them through the prism of far worse crimes. And thus as Napoleon's 'oppressive regime' looks comically ineffective when compared with modern fascism so will we view Hitler through the same lens.

> Genocide has become an official term used in international relations. The word "genocide" was not in use before 1944. Before this was established, Winston Churchill referred to it as a crime with no name. In that year, a Polish-Jewish lawyer named Raphael Lemkin, described the policies of systematic murder founded by the Nazis as genocide. The word genocide is the combination of the Greek word "geno" (meaning tribe or race) and “caedere” (the Latin word for to kill). The word is defined as a specific set of violent crimes that are committed against a certain group with the attempt to remove the entire group from existence or to destroy them.

And yet the "rock solid" information continues to fluctuate. Until recently it was well understood that every single camp was a death camp. Now, as it turns out, only the Soviet held camps were.

But yes, Hitler has had an enormous impact on culture and is the de facto villain. For now. Historian channel is making a show detailing Hitler's escape from Germany to Argentina where he tries to continue murdering Jews. Eventually people are simply going to stop giving a shit about the Holocaust. What makes it worse than any other genocide or mass murder?

He might not be forgiven but calling someone "Literally Hitler" will certainly at some point be the equivalent of calling someone "Literally Saladin" or "Literally Genghis Khan".

Not to mention that Hitler is mostly demonized in the western world. In the Arabic world he's seen very differently and in Asia he's mostly regarded a dictator like many others, with no such strong feelings like in the west. If the western influence diminishes, then the view of Hitler will also be affected by it.

but like... half of those are not true
hyperinflation was tackled by the prenazi government
germany was by no means a world economic power thanks to hitler "less than 10 years" after the treaty (which was by no means unjust)
world class scientists were produced all around the first world, and most of the german ones before the nazi regime
autobahn was once again a prenazi project, in fact, hitler and co. opposed the large scale construction projects originally!

Germans are completely irrelevant after Hitler, they are kekolds that honor BBC and build mosques. (they also get get arrested for hate speech)
"German culture" nowadays is worst PC culture on the planet.

They are much worse then a nation of nomads who is not afraid of putting up statues of their greatest leader.

I'm not even a stormfag, but Hitler is one of my greatest inspirations. I've read a few biographies about him and I can absolutely relate to his life, it's scary how similar he was to me personality-wise.

I'm not standing by the actions he did, but a nobody to the leader of a nation that had the potential to absolutely destroy the world and become the new world power is pretty amazing.

No. But I expect STEM students should know the fundamentals of STEM studies.

Hitler's painting looks good until you look at the details. See his third picture, the one in the center?

Look how fucking flat those people are. That's because he doesn't actually understand perspective, he's just aping it.

Because Hitler never tried art lessons, or fucking practicing for his exams. The ones blow show dynamic, consistent perspective, even if it's not realistic.

That's way more important for doing basic work in the art field.

Hitler's work was exactly typical of his talent level: He could paint postcards to sell to tourists. There are a million people like him in my city who will spraypaint spider-man on velvet for you in under a minute.

He'll probably be remembered like Cesare Borgia.
Ambitious, with a vision, maybe cruel (regarding his race theory), but in the end failing.

Although Cesare led his troops rather well compared to Hitler who had no formal military training beyond basic training.

But that's just not true. German medical experiments are of basically no value - even the much vaunted (on the internet) ice cold water experiments. As for other fields, the Germans did not even produce penicillin... the "German technology" is a myth largely based on their pursuing avenues of warfare which the allies - correctly - did not pursue either because they were not useful at that point in time (rocketry, a field largely championed by Goddard, an American) or they did but did not felt the need to deploy (jets).

Art lessons, yea, because a homeless bohemian can afford art lessons.

All I'm saying is that preventing someone from learning more because he hasn't learned enough is bullshit. Dude obviously enjoyed picking up the pencil, obviously wanted to be better and his only functionary way to that was being accepted, which didn't happen.

What if someone really, like, seriously wants to get into STEM. They know the basics and have even made some strides to progress but they're stymied. They want it though to the point that they're willing to starve to get a shot.

And you tell them, sorry! You don't know enough STEM. Maybe try learning STEM.

Well, that is literally how it works in tertiary education. To pursue tertiary education, you must first prove your qualifications for it. Whether by having learned them or possessing talent.
>>
>>300283
So if someone shows promise, but isn't talented 'enough' we should show them the door?

Define talent. How much talent is necessary? Does not knowing the basics of perspective, yet being able to bang out a pretty boss facial study preclude someone from joining the righteous learned elite?

Define talent.

>a homeless bohemian
Ah, the "sad" days in Veinna. That's the story Hitler wanted you to believe, but like much of his personal story it's aggrandizing bullshit. He had income from a government pension he received after the death of his mother, and made a livable sum selling his art on the streets. He earned enough money that he could afford a ticket to a Wagner concert whenever one was available, which often was several times a week. From beyond the grave, he's duped you too, anon.

The only reason Hitler and National Socialist Germany are demonised so much is WW2 attrocity propaganda like the so called "Holocaust". From the very beginning the propagandists of the time tried to frame the conflict as a "war of civilisations". And the brainwashed idiots eat it up even today.

He's whitewashing history if he thinks Genghis Kahn and Napoleon are "forgiven". Genghis is primarily remembered as a bloodthirsty warlord, and you can still find people who are still genuinely butthurt over Napolean.

Napoleon was beloved in his time and France mourned his death.
He was well respected even amongst his enemies as a great general and ruler.

As for Hitler, he won't be "forgiven" as such but he'll eventually just become another ruler who waged a war.
Right now we're still subject to the "HITLER WAS LITERALLY SATAN AND THE HOLOCAUST WAS THE WORST THING EVER." shit.

But Hitler's actions aren't unique and will eventually be regarded as just another piece of history.

History will forgive Hitler as a product of European colonialism. His racial views were not radical, the act of killing people were not exceptional, nor the act of hating the jews. It was merely his ambition to take over the European states and disrupt the status quo, is what made him a hated enemy of the west.

Racism was rampant in US and Europe still held themselves racially superior to the Blacks/Asians. The real threat of Hitler/Germany wasn't racism or the jew extermination, it was the encroaching of other colonial powers.

The current version of Hitler of "racist" "evil" is just simply a propaganda of west to make themselves the good guys. If the future's political leaning ever changes (aka chinese disruption), the historical view of Hitler will change with 99% certainty.

Probably, given time. I am sure he would still be seen as a generally bad guy (the whole bit with what he did meant we had to make a word for it) but the World War 2 aspect of his leadership would probably just be seen as yet another overambitious leader whose nation collapsed just as it met its zenith.

I have a follow up question:
How will history's view on Germany's capability to win the war change in time? Over the last 20 years it seems that it went from "Germany nearly won the war" to "They had no chance".
>>
>>304849
The only war Germany could have won was Political. Had they stomped Britain early and took Moscow when the time was ripe, MAYBE they could have secured a ceasefire with the Allies. These are all big ifs, and the reality of Holocaust would have become public eventually. And mass genocide simply wouldn't be tolerated in the long term. Even if they managed to hold all the potential capacity for war from their conquered territory, there was no chance of outpacing the US in production.

>Over the last 20 years it seems that it went from "Germany nearly won the war" to "They had no chance".
That's... just not true really. Historical research has always been much closer to the 'no chance' camp. For example the books used for the 1970s series World at War. But even contemporary views - the most famous being the relief of British leadership at US support and entry into the war and the subsequent general feeling of 'it might be very hard and take very long but we will win eventually'. The issue is rather clear simply because the Germans waged war against a collectively massive industrial and economic juggernaut. They had no chance of knocking out Britain, the Soviets had stopped their best - and already slim - chances of a victory at Moscow, and then followed up by Stalingrad shortly afterwards.

Nope. It's not that hard to make some random guy to look like Hitler. Someone vaguely similar looking guy, add fancy haircut and very recognizable facial hair.

Film and photographic paper they used in 60's and 70's is already pretty different from more modern equivalents, yellow or orange tint. If you would say color photographs were super ultra rare prior to 1930's or 1920's I'd agree, but by late 30's color photography was becoming common.

but the industrialisation and sheer barbarity of his actions in the east like death camps, pogroms, plans to enslave a whole language family is shocking. And it always will be. Romans brought civilization, Temujin was just a cruel nomad conqueror, Napoleon - genius and desu product of circumstances. Hitler was a madman who failed due to his stupidity and a person who killed 15 millions of civillians. Don't you see a difference?

Hitler simply did what had to be done in order to get rid of the elements that would threaten the war effort. He eradicated those that would erode culture. I mean: look at the state the world is in. People are beginning to realise that Hitler was right. He was a visionary and a great man.

>Hitler was a madman
You're mythologizing him. Hitler was very much a SANE and NORMAL person. His actions were very much a rational choice given the situation he was in and the environmental determinism at play.

Yes he killed millions of people and he's one of the worst offenders in the history, but that doesn't make him a madman. He's in fact very much inline with the western thoughts and only diverged with the overall strategic decision. Difference really lied on the scale of the deaths and the color of the skin of the victims. Do you think the west would've given shit if Hitler was killing africans or indians?

Hilter as a racist and a madman is a myth. Hitler as a mass murderer is reality. West as a bastion of equality and freedom during WWII is a myth.
