Berlin, Germany—There were three major blunders by Adolph Hitler that brought about his defeat.
1. A valiantly fought air battle over Brittan was lost by the Germans. They would have instead clobbered the UK with a ground invasion. The Brits had an unarmed population and their young men trained with sticks to fight the enemy that never came. The unarmed cops and population was no match for armed invaders. The Brits never learned from that blunder. Additionally the politicians in the UK like Neville Chamberlain were accomplished Nazi collaborators. American politicians collaborated with despot Communists back then as they still do today. The UK would have gone along with Nazi rule with a stiff upper lip!
2. There was a huge population of Communist hating Ukrainians in Russia that would have aligned with Hitler to defeat the Soviets. Instead the Nazis enslaved and further victimized the Ukrainians. That was a colossal blunder.
3. The Nazis developed the Messerschmitt fighter jet that could have easily defeated all of the Allied bombers and their prop plane escorts. Hitler just didn’t understand the value of the fighter jets and put his money on the failed V1 and V2 rockets. The rocket program was beset with constant sabotage as Germany and its people were being bombed into a burnt cinder.
Adolph Hitler was a brilliant communicator and Socialist politician who was loved and admired around the world. Hitler eventually was revealed as despised despot. Hitler’s desire to conquer the entire world and obvious mental illness thankfully was his undoing. Hitler’s reign caused 50 million needless deaths along with hundreds of millions of additional lives destroyed by ghastly injuries and tyranny.
Germans are a loyal group of people that were programmed for centuries to accept authority. Accordingly they gave unquestioned allegiance to their Furher.
Beware of any overly popular politician since history redundantly shows they are all tyrants in the end. Small governments that work for the people are the answer.
Here is a test. Switzerland has not been in a war in many centuries despite all of the killing that has surrounded that nation. They Swiss are trusted as safe-keepers of the world’s wealth. Name at least one Swiss politician and William Tell does not count! I guess they keep a pretty low profile, don’t they. Perhaps the USA could learn from the Swiss? That will never happen.
