Hitler was acting in the best interests of Germany in the mid 30ies.  Sometime between 1934 and 1938, he began acting in his best interests, and in the interest of owning a bit more of the world than he was controlling then.

He was, before his brain went south, a gifted speaker, capable of swaying thousands of people to his point of view.  By accusing unpopular portions of the population of horrible crimes and actions against the State, he eliminated any chance of organized opposition from within Germany.  After all, if you disagree with Herr Hitler, you must be a Jew sympathizer or worse.

At the opening of the war, Hitler was quite sane, although it appears that at this point he has slipped over the line from using scapegoats to feed the mob to believing that some people are actually less than others by reason of their race only.

By 1943, he was severely unstable and his list of mental conditions would fill the page.  His career, as tracked by his speeches, is a slow fade into insanity by a brilliant man with a true gift for giving the mob everything they wanted while taking everything he wanted.

From 1924 to 1933, he went from prison, (Tried for High Treason after a failed coup.) to Chancellor of the state.

I think his dictator ambitions, racial beliefs and sociopaths ways were evil as hell.

I also think that had he gotten a bit of treatment, he might have brought Germany to the prosperity he promised when he was appointed Chancellor in 1933.

Well, this sucks. I agree with everything said apart from the idea that his dictatorial ambitions, racist views and sociopathic tendencies made him evil, and I think that they're just characteristic of politicians. Why else would you become one? But that's probably due to me being a miserable bastard who hates politicians, so I wasted your time with baseless opinions, and am still doing so, sorry.

Not all politicians are evil, per say.  Some of them are simply greedy and self absorbed.  I wouldn't allow any of them to eat at my table though.

I'm not certain I would allow most of them in the house.  I know how to get rid of bugs and mice, but I don't know any Politician repellents.

Hitler was a 56.69 on the Evil Scale. That's pretty high when compared to Al Pacino's 56.68.

It's all in the wording; I'm more or less just nitpicking on the accuracy of her statement. That is all.

I said that she wasn't incorrect in her opinion, but I was more so speaking in regards to the wording or how I thought it should have been more accurately stated.

Evil is purely a subjective call.  I assume that Hitler saw his actions as needed for his country to become stronger and found nothing evil in his views.  From his point of view, he was acting in the greater good when he ordered the mass murder of thousands of people.

From my point of view, what he did was evil.

Hell, as I used it, was a descriptive term, meant only to be used as a reference.  Everyone knows that "Hell" as the place of punishment for Xtians, is a terrible place full of evil things and demons.  The phrase "Evil as Hell" is merely a description.

Hitler was ill, although what that illness was is a subject of serious debate.

http://en.allexperts.com/q/20th-Century-History-3242/Hitler-mental-illness-nervous.htm

That there was something wrong with him is not the question, by the end of the war, he had a visible palsy, noticeable even in the film of that time.

I have not been able to find any proof that he did more than mild experimentation with drugs.  Correction, he did take the Speed tablets offered to the German troops, Starting in 1942.

"From 1942, the Nazi leader Adolf Hitler received daily injections of methamphetamine from his personal physician, Dr Theodor Morell. The F?hrer was also familiar with cocaine. Hitler's ailments have been attributed to everything from tertiary syphilis to Parkinson's disease. But many of The F?hrer's clinical signs and symptoms may have been caused by his exotic drug regimen.

In Hitler's Wehrmacht, methamphetamine tablets branded as Pervitin were liberally distributed to German fighting troops throughout the War. Amphetamines are "power drugs" that reduce fatigue, heighten aggression, and diminish human warmth and empathy. "

(http://amphetamines.com/adolf-hitler.html)

Even a regular dose of speed wouldn't account for all of the problems he had in the last part of the war.

Raist is technically correct. While "douchebag" would be feminine, it is not a French word (let alone a coherent insult) and when rendered to its proper translation, it is (oddly enough) masculine.

Sweet. How do you know douchebag would be feminine though?

(the rules for figuring it out are fuzzy in my head)

You are probably remembering the important 'e' rule for feminine words. "Douchebag" would be somewhat of an exception to it; literal consideration is meaningless ("douche", which is feminine, simply means "shower") and the foreign word latched on to the end would not register. Morphologically speaking, I am certain it would be rendered feminine.

As far as it matters though, you would be correct. Bag (sac - in French) is masculine and would be the subject that decided the form when translated.

I do not actually know if "douchebag" even has a simpler equivalent in French. I am intrigued enough to do some research into it. I shall report on my findings.

Thank you.

Don't really find that video funny. It was a true statement nonetheless.
