Imagine a "time machine" is constructed and Adolf Hitler is brought back in all his gruesome gory. Instead of a Jesus, an Einstein or Groucho Marx, we get Der Fuhrer.
Many of the programs the Nazis had established are with us now. Reduction of meat consumption, smoking verboten, eugenics in a "kinder and gentler" format, control of speech (political correctness). I think more than Hitler has returned. Stalin, Mao, the Communist were no different, but the Nazis get the big slam. Winners write history; loser go to Nuremberg.
America and Britain are the all-time useful idiots of history. We destroyed the evil Nazis but allowed Communism to spread. Obviously, total war does not root out evil. Evil was preserved under new management.

I am first-generation American. I was encouraged to embrace the melting pot concept in Catholic school. Pride in my people always existed, but in the "marketplace" of America it was Yankee Doodle Dandy all the way. Now we are in the era of diversity. Diversity divides us, making a culling process possible down the road. It won't be a little guy with a mustache coming for you.

Watch American History Channel detail the scope of Nazi plans for humanity, that which is allowed to survive. It is all occurring again with an assist from AI (Artificial Intelligence), the new Gestapo.
