Hitler, rise and fall of a common man

Hitler, rise and fall of a common man

Hitler was not a common surname in Germany.
His real surname was Hutler (those live in hut) or Hiedler or Schickelgruber. It was surname of his father Alois Hutler, a cobbler turned government employee and became farmer after his retirement. It is said that Alois received this surname from his step father whom his mother married after his birth. Alois's real father was known to her mother Anna Maria only, whether a Jew where she was working as maid or someone else, whether they were from Ohio origin or some other place, historians may debate, but his son Adolf has created a history in Europe. People may question purity of his origin but he was the strongest propagater of purity of blood and supremacy of Aryan, born to culture and rule the world.

He didn't want to become a government servant as desired by his father, opposed him, didn't take formal education and joined the drawing school in Vienna but failed and moved to the field of architect. His father died when he was 13 years old and his mother died when he was 15 years old. He was inspired by his history teacher and became a strong believer of superiority of German race and nationalism. He was working as draftsman to earn livelihood and read books for entertainment and educational knowledge. His major love was for books on history, politics and social problems. He had analytical mind that can accept the right things (as per his beliefs) of his use from the book and discard the waste. He hated Hamsburg Rule and was against the slavery of German people living in Austria and desired for their freedom and unity of German motherland.

During his stay in Vienna (1901-12), he read a lot and studied a lot about acts and behaviour of the people, union, press, Parliament a aand concluded his thought process with the greatest enemies of Germans: the Jews, the upper castes, their character and the Press under their command. He realised the negative side of the Jews Marxism and developed strong hatredness against them. He was finding a space for Aryan (special) supremacy over the Jews (democrats). He believed that the persons of foreign origin if get citizenship, shouldn't be a liability or burden over the nation. He referred Africans as slaves and Asians as Kafirs.

He didn't like the parliamentary system based on numbers not based on quality of individuals; the system of individuals experts in winning votes but not the visionaries. He was against racial mixture and propagate to preserve the purity of German Nordic blood as the most valuable of treasure. He wrote, "The Weltanschauung which bases the State on the racial idea must finally succeed in bringing about a nobler era, in which men will no longer pay exclusive attention to breeding and rearing pedigree dogs and horses and cats, but will endeavour to improve the breed of the human race itself".

He was carrying strong ideas on educational and political system. He believed in one man (able) rule over the nation with all the responsibility and support of advise of the intellectuals and specialists. He gave more importance to physical training and suggested to have two hours PT everyday in schools and thereafter till the youth reaches to the middle age. He believed that valuable hours of life shouldn't be wasted in educational institutes for learning the things those are of no used for life. History should be taught not to remember the dates and events but teaching to make the principal lines of historical development understood. For history must not be studied merely with a view to knowing what happened in the past but as a guide for the future, and to teach us what policy would be the best to follow for the preservation of our own people. Science may also be made a means of promoting a spirit of pride in the nation. Advanced teaching in various subjects may be available to those who want to specialise in them. But for average individual, education fundamental of various subjects with the study of the subject in which he intends to work during the rest of his life are important. He suggested clear cut division between general culture and special branches. He believed in patriotic education of the youths. He stressed more on character building.

He believed that talent and natural gift should be the decisive factor in qualifying for the right to a higher education. He gave an example of America where the gifted persons of lowest social classes have contributed more in discoveries with the help of higher education. The state may give definite education in primary to the average lot but also open the door of higher schools to grow the talent of the competent brains. This suggest that his concept of Aryan Superiority was not limiting to a selected social classes of Germans but all the social classes (upper of lower) of German (Aryan) Blood. Socially, he belonged to a cobble caste. He proposed that boys and girls after leaving school, will not be a semi pacifist, a democrat or something else if that kind, but a whole hearted German. The man who loves his nation can be ready to make sacrifices for the nation.

He objected the stupid habit of looking down on physical labour and favouring for the son of highly placed civil servant in the civil services. The individual will have to be valued, not by the class of work he does but the way in which he does it and by its usefulness to the community.

He believed that clothes make the man therefore was conscious about his clothing and saved from food but didn't compromise on clothing. He believed that young girl must become acquainted with her sweetheart and condemned the stupid manner of dressing of the girls to be led astray by Jewish mongrels, with their repulsive crooked waddle.

He created a large empire of his own but by a small mistake of attacking Russia in winter, lost it like leaf pile, which he had rule for at least a decade more. His acts of genocide of the innocents made the surname Hitler, the most hated Surname in the world that nobody take it and those had had, changed it after his death. Shiver passes through the body of many with the word Hitler and nobody wants to talk or discuss about him in many parts of the Europe even today after 71 years of his death. People may criticise him with harshest words but nobody had raised any doubt on his spirit of nationalism. It was a miracle of the history that a small man of very poor family who lost his parents in teen age and was managing his needs from the savings of food rose to the height of the highest power of the nation whom he loved from his childhood.

He was born on 20 April 1889 in a Christian family of a small village Linz located in Austria on the border of two empires, the German and the Austrian. The country was dominated by the Jews, and when he was denied employment or conscription in Austrian Army by the Jews (he might had left Vienna to avoid conscription in Austrian army), he took final part of his father's estate and moved to Munich Germany in 1913 with a bitterness in mind at 24 years age. Some part of Germany was under the rule of the King of Austria.

He joined Bavarian German Army, failed in the physical test of the induction training in Salzburg (Austria) but still served as infantryman in the Bavarian Army as Private. He was in the reserve company. After 40,000 (3/4) men were killed in the battle of Ypres, his regiment (List) entered into war with 3600 men, left with mustered 611 and his company 250 was reduced to 42. He was promoted from Private to Lance Corporal and was given the job of regiment message runner. He used his four years period in military education. During the war, he was injured and was confined to bed, Germany lost and signed treaty of Versailles. His mind on bed thought that he can liberate Germany and would make it great. The seed of WW-II planted in his mind.

As part of post war demilitarisation he returned to Munich and came in contact with the founder of DAP (German's Workers Party) Mr. Drexler and on invitation from him, he joined the party in September 1919, when he was 30 years old. Within 6 years exposure to the WW-I, he was a changed man. He made Munich as HQ of his activities and started finding public space for his 'German Nationalism' from within the Marxist and Jews dominance. He was the 7th member of his party that had 7 shillings fund balance. The party was unable to attract 3 digit audience, but his continuous efforts of 4 years, from 1920-24, he was able to raise it to 2000 and place his voice and principles before them. His autobiography written in 1930, describes his journey from zero to hero.

His oratory skill was his advantage made him hero and Fuhrer of Nazy Germany (1933-1945). The propaganda used by the Nazi Party was a crucial instrument of acquiring and maintaining power of the Nazis over Germany. Former journalist Goebbels was the head of the Nazi party propaganda. The word Goebbels became synonym of negative connotation of falsehood of the propaganda. They followed what Hitler wrote in Mein Kempf,

"Propaganda must always address itself to the broad masses of the people. (...) All propaganda must be presented in a popular form and must fix its intellectual level so as not to be above the heads of the least intellectual of those to whom it is directed. (...) The art of propaganda consists precisely in being able to awaken the imagination of the public through an appeal to their feelings, in finding the appropriate psychological form that will arrest the attention and appeal to the hearts of the national masses. The broad masses of the people are not made up of diplomats or professors of public jurisprudence nor simply of persons who are able to form reasoned judgment in given cases, but a vacillating crowd of human children who are constantly wavering between one idea and another. (...) The great majority of a nation is so feminine in its character and outlook that its thought and conduct are ruled by sentiment rather than by sober reasoning. This sentiment, however, is not complex, but simple and consistent. It is not highly differentiated, but has only the negative and positive notions of love and hatred, right and wrong, truth and falsehood. (...) Propaganda must not investigate the truth objectively and, in so far as it is favourable to the other side, present it according to the theoretical rules of justice; yet it must present only that aspect of the truth which is favourable to its own side. (...) The receptive powers of the masses are very restricted, and their understanding is feeble. On the other hand, they quickly forget. Such being the case, all effective propaganda must be confined to a few bare essentials and those must be expressed as far as possible in stereotyped formulas. These slogans should be persistently repeated until the very last individual has come to grasp the idea that has been put forward. (...) Every change that is made in the subject of a propagandist message must always emphasize the same conclusion. The leading slogan must of course be illustrated in many ways and from several angles, but in the end one must always return to the assertion of the same formula."

As a ruler, he govern his country on Bach System. The pillars of the so-called Bach system (Bachsches System) were, in the words of Adolf Fischhof, four "armies": a standing army of soldiers, a sitting army of office holders, a kneeling army of priests and a fawning army of sneaks.

During the World War II (1939-45), prisoners of war were the liability over the winner. They had three options: either to feed them in jail or to execute them or to free them. They put them on work but were giving only 20 gm food per head per day. The prisoners and Jews couldn't work for long with this little nutrition of 20 gm/day and had to stand in the queue of execution. How did they execute? They took the soft option of Gas Chamber, holocaust and executed millions: the prisoners of war, the Jews, the old, the young, the children, the women, all without any discrimination. The genocide was so big and cruel that when a Gujarati native of Vienna visited one of the Gas chambers located in Austria in 1988, he felt the pungent smell of human corpses after four decades of the genocide. It was a dark chapter of human history. Many were executed and many ran away to farther distances. Austria left with only 10% of Jews population.

It was a bad but widespread war across 30 Countries to prove superiority, claimed loss of 50-80 million human lives including the Holocaust of 6 million Jews and 1 million Japanese in strategic bombing. The war has given us two contrast personalities: Hitler the destroyer and Eisenstein the great physicist. Hitler committed suicide and Eisenstein opened the new doors scientific inventions and discoveries. The distraction of humans and resources was so big that the British couldn't hold command over it's empire. Many countries gained independence. India's Independence was one of the positive outcomes of the WW-II. The WW-II ended on 15 August 1945 with the surrender of Japan and opened the door of India's independence on 15 August 1947.

We pray the Almighty to save the mankind from the cruelty of human minds. Let the terrorists rest in peace. Let the wars of superiority and inferiority stops. Let all people live in liberty, equality and justice. Let our earth be the "Nandan Van" and the world be ONE family of "Vasudhaiv Kutumbkam".

Happy Independence Day. Happy Janmashtami.
