Do you understand how scary this picture is



god forbid a real person do real person things he wasnt just a robot who killed people jesus fucking christ



uh yeah its not like he killed and tortured six million jews or anything



Hold on just a tick. Listen, I’m Jewish, so I’m perfectly capable of understanding that what he did was just…..well, there are no words for it. But let’s not round it up to simply Jews that got killed. It was six million people that died in those camps, not just Jews. Did you know that homosexuals were sent there, too? Yeah, I’m sure you did. They had to wear special little symbols on their clothes. Do you know what it was? It was a pink triangle.
It was six million PEOPLE. 
But you let that roll over in your mind for a while and you are going to forever see this man as a monster, but that’s not what he was. He was someone who thought he was truly doing something right for his nation, no matter how shitty he was doing it. Believe me when I say that I don’t like him. I really don’t. My grandfather’s brothers died in those camps, and my grandfather escaped to Spain, then to Mexico. He was lucky.
This is not a monster holding hands with a little girl.
This is Adolf Hitler, a man, holding hands with a little girl. 
Yeah. It’s fucking scary. It really is. Do you know why?
It’s because you’re seeing that he wasn’t, in fact, a monster. You’re seeing in this picture that he was a man. He was a man, and that’s really the saddest part of it all.






As a History major who specializes in the history of early modern Europe, I’ve studied a lot of dictators in detail, not just Hitler. The number one mistake anyone could ever make in history is making the assumption that only inhuman monsters are capable of doing terrible things. Stop dehumanizing Hitler just so you can reassure yourself that “normal” humans aren’t capable of doing bad things. Hitler liked children and dogs, he was a vegetarian and he cried like a little boy when his mother died. I’m not saying he was a good, innocent person, but when you stop attributing human characteristics to historical figures like Hitler, it’s how you overlook people just like him in real life, and it’s how people like him end up back in power.


That last statement.

But yeah, THAT IS WHAT IS SO SCARY ABOUT THIS PICTURE. You reassure yourself that he was a monster who kicked puppies and stole candy from orphans, a complete, irredeemable monster. You blot out the fact that he was a MAN. A person, who had motivations, and wasn’t just doing all this for the evulz. That he could be any ascendant politician…and as was said, if we ignore that fact, that politician could ver yeasily come into power again, and repeat that vicious cycle.

The thing that gets me, is that everyone always points out how “one man” did what he did. No. The scariest thing about this is not what Adolf Hitler as one man did, but an entire planet of human beings helped or watched it happen. The fact that the human race is capable of such horrors. We as creatures have evil and destruction inside each and every one of us and we can bring it out of each other and help each other grow into bigger, worst, more horrifying minds. All while able to switch it off and do the exact opposite. The human mind and what we are capable of not just as individuals, but as a race, is what scares me the most.

    Cellphones have made it easier for us socially impared people to look less awkward when we’re sitting alone at a table in a room full of people that have friends. Plus, makes it so we don’t really notice when people are choosing to sit at another table, stand, or go somewhere else just to avoid sharing a table with you. God I feel like I’m in fucking high school again. God damnit I hope it doesn’t stay this way at my new job
