Was Hitler Human? Controversial New Movie.

Greetings!

Check out the trailer and the buzz on this new movie "Max":

Seems like it might be interesting.

I want Cornelius to direct a film in which all the Nazi's are Jews, rounding up arabs and putting them into camps and exterminating them wholesale.

Bit of a niche market, I think CNN already has it wrapped up.

I'd pay €10 to see that.

Of course he was human...

I dislike the demonizing of humans, even when they commit henious atrocities.

In my book, there are no evil humans. Evil resides in the act, not the person. Im quite sure that Osama bin Laden is(was?) a loving father and a good friend to some. All dictators, murderers, rapists etc, etc have redeeming qualities. They are much more than the content of their labels... even if we often dont see it that way.

That doesnt mean that criminals shouldnt be punished. I just think it important to appreciate what humans are, and especially arent.

When acts (especially when conducted between groups or populations) are evil is very much in the eye of the beholder.

the examples are legio

"Eye of the beholder"?

Well, most eyes would consider Adolf Hitler to fall into the "evil as they come" category.

Though I heard he was fond of dogs.

The demonization of men due to their actions is counter productive. It breeds an opinion that these beings who could perpetrate such atrocities are not human.

We need to realize that the opposite is true. They are human. It is possible for a humanbeing to breed such intense hatred. That being the case it is possible for MAN to destroy MAN. It has been happening for years, and it will continue to happen unless man choses to stop.

When we dissassociate these genocide capable men with the human race, we abandon all hope of learning of the potential of the human being. In doing so, we abandon hope of learning how to successfully stop ourselves and those like us from commiting such acts.

So in answer to the original question, yes, Hitler was a man.

Greetings!

My original post merely paraphrased the Jewish Defense League, and others, critism of the movie.

By the way, I've recently heard that the JDL changed it's tune (after it's "film reviewer" actually watched the movie).
