    Imagine that you've somehow tumbled backwards through time and find yourself in the small Austrian village of Braunau just across the border from German Bavaria. You're alone ...well, not quite. You're in the home of an infant Adolf Hitler who's laying swaddled on counter top in the small kitchen, next to him a metal tub filled with warm water. Would you drown Hitler ...?

    Well, I'd assume he wasn't alone in his uhh..."Eugenics" endeavor, so drowning him and him alone wouldn't quite solve the problem in my opinion. You'd have to also bitch-smack all of the co-conspirators until death do they part.

    No. I wouldn't drown infant Hitler. I might see if I can oversee his upbringing and straighten him out.

    I probably would have smothered him rather than drowned him, but I take it that really is not the question.

    What I wonder is, without Hitler would Germany have tried to extinguish the Jewish people anyway?

    But just to be clear: yes, I'd have burned down the house with everyone in his family trapped inside if that was the only way I could be sure he died.

    Well that's telling.

    You're saying you believe in eugenics. So essentially, you have the same core beliefs as Nazis. The end justifies the means, and those we don't like are less than human. We have the right to butcher them.

    Would you have drowned Bush as an infant?

    How about Christ? Lots of people have died because of God, after all....

    He was not alone. He was the crowning glory of over 60 years of German socialism. He was very much the child of his age.

    He got the largest percentage of votes in the last election, his ideas were not (And from what i see here and around) and are not all out of line for socialists in general.

    While he was the overall voice of the party, there were better brains than his that carried out most of the real work of his revolution. Most of them, like Heydrich, Boreman, Schaact... have been forgotten.

    He was like the rash that shows you have measles. But the disease goes far deeper.

    And you don't cure evil by using evil methods.

    People are so fucking stupid. It boggles the mind.

    In order to prevent the Holocaust much more than reforming or drowning Hitler would have been necessary. There were multiple causes and conditions that lead to Germany going crazy.
