^^^ Jacob yeah those videos were seriously the wrong way to go for him. The rest of TIK's content is extremely informative however. The socialist detour was just misguided I hope.

I just ignore it since the rest of his content is great, yes. He's been busting a couple myths about the Wehrmacht too so you can hardly call him a wehraboo/nazi too.
 

Dystopian

Definitely not a nazi. :grin: Yeah he really is red pilling most of the time, I use his arguments against the Wehrmacht sometimes. Its not even like he is denying what made them (Wehrmacht/OKW/OKH) good, its just that Russia was never gonna happen end of story.

He may not be a Nazi but he's a naïve Nazi enabler. Liberals have been guilty of this since the 40s, putting Nazism on a "let's hear what they have to say" pedestal and taking propaganda at face value when analysing their ideology. Pretty sure tik brings this up in another video as well, where he points out how dumb it is to use the accounts of Nazi generals in determining why the wehrmacht failed in Russia.

Nazism is fine-tuned as a counter to the rotting corpse of liberalism, hence why so many people who consider themselves "classical liberal" or "libertarian" with no other ideology can eventually become something resembling a Nazi, or giving far more credence to nioh-nartzees than to socialism.

But he doesn't think Nazism is any good at all! He's an anti-nazi, he just thinks it's a (really bad) form of socialism. I don't think that's how "Nazi enabler" works.

Although according to some people being against political violence makes you a nazi enabler as well, so hey, what do I know?!?

Nazi enabler in that he takes nazi propaganda at face value rather than being extremely critical of anything they say. I'd feel the same if someone used Soviet propaganda to explain what ideology the USSR was, seeing as everything that state produces was made specifically to mislead people and explain away their failures.

Why
On the matter of the Hitler's quote, I highly, highly recommend this article:
https://www.jstor.org/stable/40407004?seq=1#page_scan_tab_contents

It is basically about additional political divide in that to classical left/right and authoritarian/democratic sliders it adds primacy of economics/politics. On a development of original Marxist Communism it observes different Socialist parties that emerged in 19th/20th centuries. There are some very interesting observations, including some about national socialism.

Amazing documentary, very touching. Just the narration would have made it quite an outstanding work, but it alongside the coloured videos brought it to a whole new level. I gasped for air a couple of times and almost shed a tear on another. Highly recommend it. Should be the kind of thing that every history teacher around the globe brings to his/her students.

In fact the only issue is that it was too short!


Peter Jackson outdid himself and that is quite hard to accomplish...
