LikeLike Carole: Yeah, sure, gentle soul. Well, they say that artists are nuts, a notion my experience with them confirms. He simply went overboard with it. LikeLike Versatile fellow, that Adolf. LikeLike Señor Lanier: Versatile indeed. He did have talent. I wonder where along the line he went insane. LikeLike The history channel had a very interesting program on the Nazi use of crystal meth. Apparently the soldiers used it in pill form to overcome hunger and fatigue. And Hitler himself got regular injections by his doctor. That was apparently the key factor in him losing it. The meth-induced mood swings just became too much and he lost his mind. LikeLike Kim: He was clearly insane. Hard to know when that started. He was a pretty good artist, however. Would that he had been more successful in that field, staying out of politics. LikeLiked by 1 person I think most people have some sort of talent that is more or less unseen by others. Perhaps someone told him that he wasn’t very good, or he himself thought that. It’s a shame in this case. Thanks for bringing his talent to light. I wish he would have stuck with it. LikeLike Ray: Yes, would that he had stuck to painting. What a different 20th century we would have had. LikeLike That’s an understatement! LikeLiked by 1 person Now that is an interesting talent, should have stuck with it and let go of politics. LikeLike Tancho: Just one of those “if onlys” that travel through the pages of history. LikeLike I heard that Adolf was refused entry into the Academy of Fine Art in Vienna in 1906. https://www.quora.com/Why-was-Adolf-Hitler-rejected-from-the-Academy-of-Fine-Arts-Vienna One might wonder how his life might have turned out if he had been accepted. LikeLike Brent: Thanks for the link. Interesting. Aside from wondering how his life would have turned out if he’d been accepted, let’s wonder how millions of lives would have been different. LikeLike Yeah. Not sure whether someone else would have taken his place a similar outcome or not. My history is a little sketchy especially pre WW2. After all, isn’t it the winners who write the history books ? LikeLike Brent: Hitler was a piece of work all right. How Germany would have turned out post-WWI without him is impossible to know. The nation was left in financial ruin due to the harsh peace treaty they had to sign. In a way, the victors created Hitler. LikeLike Thanks for that. That’s what I suspected. If you corner a rat and starve him out he becomes dangerous. It makes one wonder about North Korea and whether punishing sanctions are the way to go. LikeLike Brent: Starving a rat is an excellent analogy for what the allies did to Germany. As for North Korea, something must be done. Rocket Man is quite young, quite dangerous, and totally out of touch with reality. LikeLike Comments are closed.
