So, there are still Hitlerites out there. Not perhaps as genocidal, but people who are anti-Semite, Aryan-supremacist, and perhaps not so fond of cosmopolitan democracy. I got part of my audio book from Radio Aryan. Although it's always hard to judge by websites -- websites are easy to create and, as Dan Carlin said in his Hitler podcast, if you put a swastika on a book, sales can be expected to go up 10% because people have a sort of morbid fascination. I found a few 'was Hitler right?' online polls, but I consider the results of those pretty worthless.

But, of course, you can't have a NAZI-like system without the circumstances from which it grew. The first circumstance is the fresh string of a lost war and chocking reparations of the victor. America has never known that.
