Adolf Hitler1




Anger and hatred can be produced with such little integrity it is frightening. Adolf
Hitler’s work, Mein Kampf, is filled with such fury and abhorrence. Millions of people
bought into his ideas without even stopping to question the validity of his work.
Considering at this time many Germans were freezing, starving and suffering from a huge
economic depression not much had to be said to get people on Hitler’s side. Hitler makes
many false statements and provides no evidence to back many of them, he simply finds the
Jews as something to blame Germany’s problems on. In Hitler’s work he also contradicts
himself on numerous occasions. If people had stopped to think about what Mein Kampf was
really saying these falsies and mistakes would have been noticed.

Adolf Hitler makes many statements in an attempt to evoke anger towards people of the
non-Aryan race, but he provides no proof to back up his statements. “All the great
civilizations of the past became decadent because the originally creative race died out,
as a result of contamination of the blood,” states Hitler. That is simply a statement and
nothing more. There is no evidence that the Greek or Roman Empires fell as a result of
“cross-breeding,” and if there is Hitler provides no such information. Hitler also says,
“All that we admire in the world today, its science, its art, its technical development
and discoveries are the products of the creative activities of a few peoples, and it may

that their first in beginnings must be attributed to one race.” There are many
discoveries in all areas mentioned which were made by different races; there is not one
dominant race responsible for all advances in the world today. Also, Hitler still
neglects to provide proof or example to back up his statements. Hitler provides the
reader with many ideas and beliefs but no facts or truths making his work a rather invalid
piece.

Adolf also makes statements that contradict his own ideas. The idea that Jews came up
with this “crazy” notion that “Man can control even nature,” is mentioned by Hitler.
Oddly enough, with his idea to rid the world of all races that aren’t Aryan, he is in a
sense also trying to control nature. By trying to control nature, Hitler seems to agree
with the ideas of the Jews despite putting them down. He also believes that people who
take in the “Jewish babble” only have “a mere idea, and a very preposterous idea.”
Ironically though, all Hitler has is an idea, and a ridiculous idea at that. He can’t
possibly call the words of the Jews “mere idea[s]” because his feelings that the Aryan
race is superior are also merely ideas. In a sense then, Hitler is criticizing himself,
taking everything he’s saying and removing all integrity from it. He also talks about how
a “sin against the will of the Eternal Creator” will be avenged. Well, murder is surely a
