A Lesson from History

I recently read Mein Kampf by Adolph Hitler which he wrote in 1924.  He had two fundamental beliefs: the first is that the German (Aryan) race is superior to all others and must be preserved in its purity for the world to advance. His second belief was that the Jews were responsible for everything wrong not only in Germany but in the world.

He believed that he as the leader had absolute power and was above the law.  He believed in using propaganda (this includes lies) to convince the masses of his goals.

He demanded absolute loyalty from all around him.  He created a private army to enforce his decisions. An analysis of his talk and actions revealed that he was destructively narcissistic and blamed others for his failures and shortcomings.

George Santayana said, “Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.”
