I shouldn't have to, because it violates Art Rosenthal's dictum at the New York Times. Still, Hitler could have been prevented from taking power before he did, and that could have been accomplished by the German people. En masse, in groups, individually. History has seen many examples of situations where people did not submit to oppressors or oppression...the Montgomery Bus Boycott started with a single clerk refusing to move out of her seat. And nobody will ever forget that magnificent picture of the Chinese guy standing down a line of tanks....the ultimate statement of man vs. the state. Sorry, I reject T34's argument. It's just the same old conspiracy theory garbage. Maybe one person can't win all the time, or even most of the time. but one person can light the emotional, intellectual, and organizational fire needed to achieve progress...just like Hitler did, to our eternal pain.
