  2. Mostly not. Hitler was elected chancellor well after writing “Mein Kampf”. Obama was elected TWICE after “Dreams from my Father”.

    1. Well technically von Hindenburg appointed Hitler Chancelor. He gained dictatorial power after the Enabling Act was passed that gave him the authority to act without parliamentary consent. After Hindenburg’s death, Hitler merged the presidency and chancellorship. I would submit that the subsequent plebiscite can’t exactly be considered an election. I doubt that obscure tome he scribbled in 1925 had anything to do with his rise to power.

  3. My point exactly. Anyone who wanted to vet Hitler could have read his book, and yet he and the NSDAP got second place in the ’32 Presidential election. Just like all the communism supporters in Korea, Vietnam, Cuba, and Venezuela; anyone with half a brain could have seen how the communists had ruined the countries of the USSR and China, yet they still wanted it, like Ratbert!

    1. I think those societies were much more closed off than we think. No one really had a full understanding of them until the fall of the USSR. And Mein Kampf didnt really take off until Hitler gained power and popularity. I think that much like today, people were ignorant and apathetic – too busy with their own lives and troubles to research anything. And STILL the Nazis lost votes that year.
