Sapper, you are confusing plant-pilot's listing of the reasons why Hitler was so popular with defending the Third Reich. The fact is that Hitler WAS popular before the war and there were reasons for this. The question of how a nation that produced such figures as Martin Luther, Goethe and Einstein could produce such a horrific regime may never fully be answered. The regime was appalling and was inherently evil but dont be fooled that this could never happen in any other country. It could have happened anywhere, USA Britain Australia with the right conditions.
