Since the question asks for your opinion, I can't answer that for you. Have a look at some other causes for the Weimar Govt's downfall and consider which you think had the most impact.
To give you some pointers about the second part of your question, the Stab-in-the-back myth made many citizens turn against the government because they thought that they had betrayed Germany. The Nazis used this in their propaganda, referring to the government as 'November criminals' and telling people that they had used the armistice to seize power. People began to become bitter and accused anyone they felt were benefiting from the Weimar Republic of stabbing them in the back. How do you think this affected a) the relationships between ordinary citizens, and b) the stability of the country overall?
