Ascent of evil - The Story behing Adolf Hitler's Mein Kampf
This is a 58min video (first viewed on kanopy.com) on the inspiration which was present at the start
of Hitler's rise to power (the documentary is called the ascent of evil - the story of Mein Kampf) and the effects on the history of Europe
back then and since of the destructive influence of this book which criticizes so much of what Hitler confronted in what he saw as the
enemies of the German people at the time.
The documentary (which appears to have a great deal of French content in the commentaries offered) suggests that much
of Mein Kampf targets the people of France generally speaking as enemies to Hitler in his own mind and writings back then.
In my own reading of Mein kampf, I did not find this to be too much the case, I find Hitler mainly arguing for a model of
men that are "strong men" which in his view defines all which is "good' I thought, of his opinion on the matter, which
would be shortsighted of course, as men with strenght but lacking in moral goodness and decency are all too much around
and not worthy of recommending as citizens over other men who have better ideas of how to exist - with love and caring
for all those that deserve and require this of them collectively speaking as a community.
There is also constant paranoia in his attacks on "Jews" as he seems to target a peoples at various times that could
be defined by race or religion perhaps, but he doesn't establish in my own mind that he is speaking of "evil" as he
describes it as he stops short of making clear what character flaws he sees in the peoples he criticizes, and how
the criticism could be applied to peoples whoever and wherever they might be (including Germany certainly) and
not just ALL those that are 'officially" a member of this or any other particular race, religion or creed. After all, there
are arguably (certainly potentially) I believe good and bad people perhaps to be found in all the major religions and
targeting one with an extreme mindset as Hitler does, does a disservice to the cause of good in the community
I should say.
Many years ago I downloaded an audiobook reading by a very nice British accented reader at audiobooksforfree.com
which has since disappeared from that site (which no longer even exists on the net I believe - last time I checked).
I uploaded the set of files (79 of them in this series) as user "liberaladvocate" to various sites on the net and
on youtube recently in the past year. I am including this great reading (in a clear voice which has great command
of both the English and German language too certainly) in mp3 format for you. Each has an embedded image
which indicates the file number so that you can pick out segments of interest to come back to and re-listen for
purposes of clarification or repudiation as the case may be - and to share and discuss with others who might benefit
from a better opinion on the material than they or you might perhaps have had long the way.
By the way, suggest you use the free MPC-HC media player for your computer with these video files
especially 4K 2160p videos we upload from time to time or documentaries seen on kanopy.com
and for mp3's embedded with sequential images such as those contained in this audiobook offering
of Mein Kampf.
We have to make this material available I believe, so that we might judge it objectively, free of propaganda
and prejudices of either side of the issues, and with a clear objective to bring out the truth and understand
the developments in history more completely using the source documents - including the book itself
in the case of Mein kampf (in mp3 audiobook format offering here) otherwise we have only hearsay to
go on and that's no way for a civilized and enlightened people to exist I suggest.
Hitler pretty much destroyed Europe back then and in the effects since I believe. Its time
to stem the tide with a clearer understanding of where he went wrong.
Please seed this important material to the world community I ask
