If you don't see how idiotic that statement is and have paid money for your education seek compensation immediately

Yes and another will emerge. Its not a question of "if" but "when".

After another great depression perhaps? Though some have said Putin is the modern Hitler.

What else do you expect the Western media to say?

It's not Putin I fear. Putin is a potential evil with a known face and name. The real threat is brewing in the shadows. Biding its time, patiently waiting for a time of global tension. It's an evil that the world had not seen since the 1930's. It frightens me.

The simple answer is yes.

...

In terms of ethnic genocide not only did we sit back and watch it happen in Rwanda 94 but its happening right now with ISIS and the worst thing is that people don't wish to put boots on the ground against them.

In terms of national socialism then certainly. In the UK the BNP got half a million votes, in France the National Front will poll above 20% and in Greece Golden Dawn is doing pretty well (remember that Hitler only needed 29% to get into government).

The more questionable thing is whether we could see a fall to dictatorship.

You'd need to see unemployment pushing past 30% though I imagine.

It's not me. I just wanted to make that clear.

Interesting question. He/she'd have to come from a country that's:
1. Reeling from a war.
2. Hit hard by reparations/sanctions from other nations.
3. Either strong enough to endure a war against global alliances on its own or be able to form a coalition to compete with them.

Hitler was really just somebody in the right place, in the right time, with the right set of skills. You'd need to create a 'perfect storm' of conditions to produce another person like him.

I think this is a little silly. The Nationalism sweeping Europe and the world is nothing like the Nationalism of Hitler. Hitler wanted to expand Germany's borders and to conquer. The Nationalists of modern Europe want to strengthen their borders and keep out outsiders. Nationalism today is a repudiation of authority - particularly of the EU - and not an attempt to extend it really in any way.

There won't be another Hitler. If the centre of gravity in politics shifts too dramatically, we might end up with a Chairman Corbyn, though...

Chairman Corbyn 😂 Agree with your thoughts. What's your opinion on the whole Corbyn situation?
