Mein Kampf gives an insight into one of the evil
geniuses of the last century, Adolf Hitler. His
barbarities during his years in power can best
be summed up in his own words: "… Cruelty
impresses, people want to be afraid of
something. They want someone to whom they can
submit with a shudder, the masses need that.
They need something to dread.…"
His ideals were highly influenced by his
teacher, Dr. Leopold Potsch, who taught him
German Political History, and by Dr. Jorg Lanz
Van Liebenfels, a defrocked monk who founded the
Temple of the New Order. Dr. Liebenfels's theory
stated that "the world belonged to the fair
skinned and the superior Aryan Race, and all the
others belonged to sub-human culture." It is
believed that they were the cause of Hitler's
Hitler envisioned himself as the captain
throughout Mein Kampf, and this struggle became
a leitmotif for his entire existence in his
later years. That he actually would bring death
to millions of people he probably did not yet
imagine in the middle of the 1920s. His
bestiality and mental distortion will go down in
the annals of history and the survivors of the
Holocaust or the common people would fervently
wish that history never repeated itself.
Mein Kampf, the only notable work of Adolf
Hitler, was written in 1924, in two volumes. The
first volume was written while he was in prison.
He was arrested for taking out a mass
demonstration in favor of national unity for the
formation of a Socialist German State. The
People's Court in Munich tried him and he was
imprisoned for thirteen months. The second was
written after his release.
Mein Kampf was written with fanatical confidence
that his National Socialist movement would be
victorious in Germany. Using about 500 proverbs
and proverbial expressions on 782 pages of the
German edition of Mein Kampf, Hitler reached the
high frequency of one proverbial utterance for
every page and a half. Through his ample use of
metaphorical folk speech, he wanted to lay a
successful foundation for his program of
National Socialism. In his "philosophical"
obsession, it was obvious to him that his
struggle would eventually make him the
indisputable "Führer" of Germany.
This book gives you an insight into Hitler's
political ideals, his beliefs and motivation,
and his struggle to consolidate Germany into one
great nation, and a Nazi-Third Reich.
