lol this topic makes me laugh, all of this talking about that we have learned alot after ww2 and it will ever happen again is a LOL, thats what people were saying After ww1 there will be no more great wars any more and wait there was ww2, so i bet there will be a ww3 some time down the line maybe.

thats why ww1 name was the Great war and not ww1 to after ww2

Its a hard question. If Hitler was killed as a child (which would be barbaric if someone did) i would think the world would be A LOT different. But theres no telling if it would be better off without him. One thing that never happened in the past could lead to a massive chain of events. So the world could be better of, or it could be a lot worse. So i'm voting for "I dont know"

I have watched back to the future the next day and came to the conclusion that if we change the time line we mite all disappear out of existence. It is weirder then it sounds.

Well I would not kill him, but i would certainly keep him away from his father.
His father abused him. A lot of adulthood insanity can be caused by former child abuse.
(He was a megalomaniac)

I would certainly have kept him off the streets. Before he was a dictator, he was a hobo.
Stressful things such as being homeless can drive some people over the edge.

I wouldn't necessarily kill him but i would try to keep him to where he is raised like the average kid.

@Aperture inc.
I would try to change history, without causing the evil of taking life.
(WW2) I wish i had my grandpa back.
Im sure you know somebody with relatives who died in WW2.
And thats a lot more than me, because over in America (Where i am sitting atm), Its all like [WE WON WW2} but one thing that people dont realize is that Russia took blows from a lot of germans, and Russia did a lot of the effort to stop Hitler as well.
So more died I believe.
I would try to make it so nobody died.

I think all that America won mostly on its own was against the Japanese.

oh god... and i see hobos on streets every day.
i'll start being really nice to them, just in case they transform into dictators someday. D:
Come to think, considering how many hobos there are in the world, we should have new totalitarian regimes sprouting every week!
I bet FBI just assasinates them before they become too popular.

Wow Blaze_k your stupid. All he is saying is that usually traumatic events such as being homeless can push people to do things,murder,rape etc.

Nov 25 2010, 6:42am Anchor

Well, no shit Einstein. I can read so it's damn obvious that I know what he meant.
You on the other hand continue to make a fool out of yourself by writing "your stupid".

If being homeless can turn someone into a murderer then the potential to do so was present in him to begin with.
It does not matter much what triggers the psycho mode, it can be divorce, loss of job, a quarrel, public humilation or shitload of other things.
If Hitler indeed had some childhood trauma then keeping him off the streets wouldn't guarantee anything. The problem was in his brain.

I'd like to think we all have the potential to become an evil person like hitler ... hence it is that important to treat people with respect and kindness unless there are very good reasons not to.

I mean, I once saw a documentry where they watched his home movies and used lip reading to figure out what people were saying ... historians said he acted eerily normal in his life. He didn't act insane ... he was defending what he thought were his countries best interests.

That suggests that Ideals and Mental anguish can corrupt regular people ... we are not immune to becoming bad, we're just lucky we grew up in a situation in which we haven't ...

yeah, and just to remind you, he thought that it's in his country's best interest to cleanese the world from jews, the handicapped, gypsies, homosexuals, slavic people, opposing politicians and basically everyone who questioned the need of such purge.

do we all have the potential to become -as- insane as this? i don't think so.

Raised under the "right" conditions? Yes! ... Even if we don't all have the potential to become as bad as hitler, we need to treat each other as if that can happen because it is undoubtfully possible someone could ...

That's why treating others respectfully and keeping a sense of general sense of peace (especially children) is so important!

People are like sponges when it comes to the attitudes and ideals around them. If they're around happy people they become happy, if they are sad, they become sad ...

Its pretty much the same for ideals as well ... however, once an ideal is conditioned in someone, contradicting ideals become harder to accept.

Well - If you choose "I would do nothing", though morally a different choice from the other two, it is IN FACT as the same as saying "NO, i wouldn't".

Dec 6 2010, 8:20am Anchor

I would not kill him, because if I did that would alter time and I probably wouldn't be born, and I like being born. It would also be impossible because of paradoxes.

Dec 7 2010, 6:25pm Anchor

Letting the moral choices for later, i would not kill him. The way the time works is too much complicated to just go and change it, at least in a rush.

About that thing of killing babies and childs i was questioning myself just an hour ago about that. Why is that so unaceptable in society? Killing them is just bad as killing an adult. The both acts are killing and - in most of, but not in all, the circumstances it is bad. It doesn't matter if is a child or an adult, killing is killing. It just get worse inside our heads.

It's the difference in potential, I'd say. An adult has had the chance to make their mark in society and achieve some things on their own, a child still has all that ahead of them. Really, it's quite a primal thing - at a primitive level, if you lose a few adults (especially adults that have already produced children) the pack/tribe will probably survive. Lose infants and the future of that pack/tribe is in much greater trouble.

As a matter of society, yes you are right. Sometimes i just throw away the concept of living in it.

Dec 8 2010, 5:26pm Anchor

Actually to me it's a matter of that the adult can defend themselves and the infant can. The bigger question is on the opposite ends of a spectrum. Why are murders that have killed babies than murders who have killed the elderly. Really again Murder itself or atleast in my opinion is human ideal in that is is techanically used in killing someone unlawfully in society. Where as a Lion can kill an animal just for being in it territory,food etc.(Yes some reasons are in laws but Lions will kill for unexplained reasons.) Really don't know why I used Lions but just an animal that popped up. Sorry to rant

i would go back collect my powers and return because you never know how it will effect the future maybe if you killed him you yourself would disappear or become a different race so.. i would leave things be.

Even disregarding the question of how it would be physically possible to be "you" of a different race by changing the events in the past, my first reaction is still ...

Well since My grandparents on my father side are german it might effect me but then I wouldnt be me would I? It might change the events and my mom and dad wouldve never met. Sure maybe my dad would have a child with another woman and the sperm that created me would be the baby but It wouldnt be me due to missing genes from my mom. Sure I might still kinda look like me(I look alot like my father) with little diffrences but still just saying you wouldnt exist period if it changed some events.
