Bin Ladin and Hitler

1 September 1939: Adolf Hitler invades an unsuspecting Poland that started one of the most
devastating wars in the history of the world. From this attack, Hitler went on to concur
other great nations in Eastern Europe. Hitler's reign of terror resulted in the death of
millions of Jews living in Eastern Europe and countless lives of American soldiers.

11 September 2001: Two planes hit the World Trade Center, a plane hits the Pentagon, and a
plane crashes in Pennsylvania. It is immediately thought that terrorism is the cause of
these disasters. Later, Osama Bin Laden is named the prime suspect in the first attack on
American soil since the Pearl Harbor attack in World War II. This tragedy resulted in the
death of over 5000 American firefighters, businessmen, and other civilians.

Though these events in history seem rather different, there are some connections in the
main parties involved: Hitler and Bin Laden. These two men are reasonable for a lot of
death and devastation in the past 100 years, and they both basically had the same goal: to
take over the world. First, to understand why these two men wanted to take over the world,
we must first understand their background.

Hitler was born in 1889 in Braunau, Austria. Hitler's early child was fairly normal, as he
received high marks in elementary school. In 1903, Hitler's father died and Hitler dropped
out of high school two years later at the age of 16. After his mother drew a widow pension
and bought some land, Hitler stayed home and did not work. He dreamed of being an artist.
Hitler moved to Vienna in 1907 were he tried to pursue his dream of being an artist. He
wanted to attend the Academy of Fine Arts, but he failed the entrance exam twice. In 1907,
Hitler's mother died and he received an inheritance from his mother, an aunt, and he
received an orphan's pension. He lived ideally in Vienna for the next few years and got
interested in politics and admired the effective leadership of the Social Democratic
Workers' Party of Vienna. He also developed a strong hatred for the Jews and Slavs. In
1914 Hitler joined the armed forces of the German Army and gradually moved his way up the
ranks as World War I progressed.

After Germany's defeat, the country was in turmoil. Hitler wanted to bring power back to
Germany. He joined the National Socialist German Workers' Party and it became known as the
Nazi party. Through the next years Hitler created the storm troopers, which were his
personal army. Though the 1920's Hitler tried to overthrow the German government but he
was unsuccessful and was incarcerated. After he was released from jail, Hitler reorganized
the Nazi party and by 1933 the Nazi's were a major political party. In 1933 Hitler became
the Chancellor of Germany and by 1935 started limiting the rights of Jews in the country,
and by the late 1930's, Hitler was the dictator of Germany. Hitler started invading lands
and in 1939 he invaded Poland and started World War II. Hitler occupied most of Eastern
Europe by 1945, but when he realized that he was losing the war and might have to
surrender, Hitler killed himself in April of 1945.

Bin Laden was born in 1957 in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia to a wealthy Saudi family. He studied

Abstract: Different arguments are needed to show that a state is justified and that it is legitimate. Justifying the state is associated with the treatises of 18th-century philosophers. The Lockean approach to this issue captures features of institutional evaluation that the Kantian approach does not. Standard justifications of the state are offered to those motivated by obj
