Well, for example, you can read Mein Kampf, (and if you haven't, you should try to sit through it) and sit in total amazement that a nobody / total loser turned politician (don't they all?) gets convicted of treason/sedition, is standing to get deported, and WRITES HIS FREAKING MASTER PLAN IN THE VERY SAME JAIL AND PUBLISHES IT!!! WTF, over?
Looking at it that way, and the fact that Hitler was most likely at least part Jewish (the much discussed "mother was a maid in the house of Rothschild" connection), it might put it into perspective that he was simply a classic politician. He was a miserable doer of everything else, but when it came to adopting the principles of his party, and becoming the standard german authoritarian ruler, he did a bang up job. Well, technically even that's only half accurate, he technically snagged defeat from the jaws of history (or is that victory?), so we can't assume he was as ruthless and badass, nor as goofy as some portray the guy. He was simply a slimy, oily politician who managed to slime his way to power and stay there long enough to get a whole shitload of people killed. Interestingly his work just so happened to provide the context that those "enemies" of his from the West and East just needed to enter into a war and tighten up their own collectivist rulerships at home. FDR sure needed the help, and so did Stalin. Hitler magically provided them with unifying catalysts to use in getting the masses behind their collectivist designs.
That said, lets not go and deride the Germans for being natural born authoritarians, a lot of the more modern geeky types have given us a lot of the freedom enhancing ideas and technologies that combat the very scum-thuggery which states and statists such as the Nazis seem to worship. From Germany comes that fantastic Chaos Computer Club (CCC) to whose members and publishers we owe quite a bit of the freedom technology we have today.
