Yes he most definitely was!Yes, it has always been so consoling and convenient to say he was insane. The truth is that he was not very different from a lot of his contemporaries, nor from many of ours.One of Hitler's biggest financial supporters in the very early days was a Jew.
It was the business community that put Hitler in power including Jews, because instability in Germany threatened a communist take over - they would lose everything.
By the time he came to power the particular Jew who helped them was owed so much money, and by that time they'd found out he was a Jew, and his shot up body was found in a hedge after the 'Night of the long knives'.
Leading politicians and the business community all thought he would soften the anti-Semitism once in power, and they could control him. Wrong!
Hitler was INSANE! So the question in the OP is non applicable.
Stalin, Franco, Truman, Mao - none even come close!
