Would You Kill Baby Hitler?

Knowing what you know about Adolph Hitler today, would you kill him as a baby, possibly preventing the holocaust, WWII and the many other atrocities that are blamed on the existence and actions of Hitler? If you were living back when he was born, and for some fantastic reason, you knew the future of the world, would you do it? If you were to kill baby Hitler, you would possibly be labeled a psychopath. Since killing a baby that hasn’t done anything yet, only a psychopath would do something that twisted and that disgusting. If you did kill baby Hitler, no one would believe that you possibly saved millions of lives in the process. No one would know what you know. You would be completely and utterly alone. If you were found out, you would probably be imprisoned for the rest of our life, raped and beaten until your death, all for saving millions of lives. Honestly, is there anyone of us, that can truly make that commitment, throwing ourselves on our sword, even though no one will ever believe you?

Hindsight is 20-20, we don’t know until we know, it’s as simple as that. The fact of the matter is people die in the process. But people do die, all the time. We cannot control life just as we cannot control death. People control, both attempted and fulfilled, is how all of these atrocities throughout history happen. It’s easy to look back and choose what you would have done different, always hoping for a better situation than what you are currently in. But why aren’t people adult enough to deal with their situation at hand, it’s always someone else’s fault, right? That’s what Hitler did with “Mein Kampf”, he blamed all of Germany’s problems on the Jews. How is anything we do different? We blame the right, we blame the left. Bush was racist, Obama was a race baiter, Trump is racist, maybe these accusations are true and maybe they are false, the bottom line is they do nothing for us. All they do is allow us to choose their sides, instead for our own side, our individual selves.

The more we look to correct history, the farther we will be from creating our own destiny. The past is the past, we all have been wronged, and all of our ancestors had it worse. Pretending that you are constantly attempting to be on the right side of history, only allows and furthers the same goal that Adolph Hitler laid out. Sure, you might not be attempting to create a super race, but the outcome is the same, some must pay with their lives and their rights, so the ones you have chosen can be placed on a pedestal.

Instead of fantasizing about what could have been, be satisfied with what you have right now. Be responsible for yourself and only yourself, your reputation is all you have at the end of the day. Any attempt at people control, always has the same outcome, death, mutilation, rape and sodomy. We are all human, we are all fallible and corrupt, sin is sin. If you only answer to yourself and you are always true to yourself, no one else will bother you. Popular culture, as history has taught us, is no true indicator of right versus wrong. What makes us think now is any different?

In the Absence of Hitler’s evil, what other evil will replace it?

  1. You asked — “Knowing what you know about Adolph Hitler today, would you kill him as a baby”

    My answer — Yes

    You stated — “If you were to kill baby Hitler, you would possibly be labeled a psychopath.”

    My response — Not if it’s a car accident or any type of accident. You have many options.

    You stated — “If you did kill baby Hitler, no one would believe that you possibly saved millions of lives in the process.”

    My response — That’s a good thing because it prevents someone from going back and stopping you.

    You stated — “No one would know what you know. You would be completely and utterly alone.”

    My response — Not sure why that matters unless the person wants some form of hero worshiping.

    You stated — “Bush was racist, Obama was a race baiter, Trump is racist, maybe these accusations are true and maybe they are false, the bottom line is they do nothing for us.”

    My response — I would say that these statements do a few things. They do expose a person’s belief system which does provide insight into what they believe or how they think. They also start a conversation or expose a fear, either of which is good information for someone to improve the situation or take advantage of a weakness.

    I would also go as far as to say that everything encountered does something for, to, or against individuals. Cause and effect.

    You stated — “The more we look to correct history, the farther we will be from creating our own destiny. The past is the past, we all have been wronged, and all of our ancestors had it worse.’

    My response — There are two key places where history must be corrected if it is incorrect. The first being medical history since we base current technology on that foundation. The second being in school, if something is incorrect (like the role of black people in historic events), then the history must be corrected since it is still being taught. We are always better with more truths than more false understandings.

    You stated — “Instead of fantasizing about what could have been, be satisfied with what you have right now.”

    My response — Only be satisfied if you have achieved what you desire otherwise continue to grow above your past failures or shortcomings.

    You stated — “Be responsible for yourself and only yourself”

    My response — Agreed.

    You stated — “In the Absence of Hitler’s evil, what other evil will replace it?”

    My response — None. If he can be killed then the rest can also.

      Very solid points, although I must say how far would anyone go back to right all of the wrongs? What would the guarantee be that simply killing Hitler would stop anything? It’s nice to think what could have been, but will you ever truly know that you did the right thing? As far as history is concerned, it already happened and ain’t nothing gonna change it. So where do any of these people today somehow believe that they would’ve been strong enough to do something to stop Hitler?

      It’s easy to talk about the atrocities of yesteryear, today, and feign heroic action. Knowing that you’ll never actually have to carry out such deeds.

      As far as the whole Bush, Obama, Trump dynamic, it’s the same game that has been played since the founding of our country. In everyone’s mind, there always has to be a bad guy, yet they can’t look at it from another angle. Since everyone is simply selfish and self involved today.

      As far as the satisfied point, I wasn’t suggesting to simply relax or give up. I was saying, accept your situation and either do something or do nothing, but blaming history for anyone’s lack of action only promotes the same problems over and over again.

      How many would have to die throughout history, before you would become a mercenary? How many would you kill, before you became the bad guy? At what point would there be anyone remaining? Lastly, you couldn’t stop at Hitler, what about Mussolini, what about Stalin, what about Hirohito? What about Rasputin, what about the cannibal tribes throughout Africa and Central America? What about the lives that Mandela took during his terrorist regime. At what point is there anyone who hasn’t done something evil, based on the standards of today or tomorrow?

      1. You stated — “Very solid points, although I must say how far would anyone go back to right all of the wrongs?”

        My response — Since we are just talking hypothetically I would say if you have the technology you would treat it like a job. So, they would just come to work, go back and change time. I’m not sure how right and wrong would play a role. It would most likely be done for power rather than morality.

        You stated — “What would the guarantee be that simply killing Hitler would stop anything?”

        My response — Since we are talking about a time capability then once you stop one event stopping any number of additional events at that point are just action items on a spreadsheet. Rinse repeat.

        You stated — “So where do any of these people today somehow believe that they would’ve been strong enough to do something to stop Hitler?”

        My response — This is the one thing I’m not understanding about your point of view, what do you mean by strength? I understand you have an assignment and you carry out the mission but are you speaking to some type of religious limitation?

        You stated — “In everyone’s mind, there always has to be a bad guy, yet they can’t look at it from another angle.”

        My response — I think at the “Masses” level then “Yes”, obviously for critical thinkers “No” and for people at the top they most likely stage most of this for power and money and don’t care about good or bad guys. I seriously doubt any of them are in prison when arrested.

        You stated — “…accept your situation and either do something or do nothing”

        My response — Agreed. We should not blame history (it’s in the past) we should act now.

        You stated — “At what point is there anyone who hasn’t done something evil, based on the standards of today or tomorrow?”

        My response — No one wants to fix everything just a few things. I think Hitler is a good choice and maybe throw in a couple more for good measure.

          I chose Hitler, since every Republican is compared to Hitler. Whereas, the dems are always compared to, I don’t know, except every communist leader ever. You’re right though, this type of hypothetical power would be used for power rather than moral.

          The strength comment was directed at “Monday morning quarterbacks” or “armchair generals” people who have no skin in the game, yet they want to act morally superior or simply tough to their audience in the moment, when they know their claims will never backed up with actual action.

          I began my post in the hypothetical sense, yet it’s said over and over, “be on the right side of history”. When in fact, more often than not, the perceived “right side of history” in present time is not yet known.

          I’ll agree that more often than not, the critical thinker can see or at least attempt to see both sides of an argument. But I was speaking in the sense of the masses.

          Everything, ever, has always been about money, power and influence. No matter what anyone says, with a smile or a frown. This idea that the wrongs of the past need to be judged, corrected or simply stricken from history is how this stuff keeps on happening. Not to the drivers, but to the passengers. The drivers know where they are going, the passengers are simply along for the ride, hoping for good intentions and a wonderful outcome for them, yet they are too lazy to navigate.

          You brought up black people in an earlier comment. I concur, the slanderous revisionist history that is and has been taught about black folks is another planned attempt to force servitude and continue the idea of perpetual victimhood. All to enrich the peddlers of this hysteria.

          Then again, whatever side you are on dictates everything. What if a group of people thought that Hitler was right, would they then kill FDR? How would that work out for the rest of us?

          1. I look at this from a much different perspective. I see the world like the world sees the Aztec’s. They had a vast empire and then one day “POOF”, all gone.

            I think we can change history, create political parties, yell and scream, it’s all a great show. But in my world, I’ve learned enough to know that the singularity is coming. No matter who you are or what you believe you can’t escape what’s coming.

            At some point in the future one of two things will happen and they will most likely feel the same for anyone standing on the sidelines watching.

            (1) We don’t solve our petty problems, but our technology continues to advance at frightening speeds until we end it all.

            OR

            (2) We solve all our conflicts while technology advances at a frightening speed and we change into something that isn’t even human anymore and the world goes silent as we all move on.

            Either way the only option is to enjoy what you have today. Pizza, a good movie and some laughter.

            Enjoy it while you can, let the mad people entertain you.

              No matter how advanced we think we may be, the human mind and the persistence of the human spirit have yet to be defined, mimicked or cracked.
