The Hitler issue.

Recommended Posts

Nicolas

I was going to post the following text as a response to KerrTexas on the thread http://timetravelinstitute.com/threads/regardless-of-consequences.9112/ but as I wrote It I realized it would be a whole other subject. I also would like to know what you guys think about it. Well, here it is:

 

I've always thought about the Hitler issue, regarding time traveling, and I tend to face it differently. One wouldn't have to kill him. Not even kill anyone for that matter. Going back a bit further in time would be enough to just avoid his parents to meet. I don't know, but going back somewhere in time where his mother met his father (I mean, if you have the technology to travel through time like that, you sure could dig up at least the year they met), and intervene in her life in some way that you could change HOW or even better, IF, she met Adolf's father.

 

I do believe that small changes in the past, could mean big changes in the future. Let's say you change the day they met. She was going to the bakery where she met him but you lock the gate of her house with a padlock. She gets late to the bakery and he's not there anymore. For some reason, probably because that Austrian city is small, they met some other day. They still got married, and she still got pregnant. The whole embryology would be different this time. The baby could even be a girl. If it was a boy, it would not be Hitler. She could even name him Adolf Hitler but again, his genetics would not be the same. Then history would've change because of a padlock.

 

Any thoughts?

When I have a bit more time (no pun intended), I'll respond to your post, but in the mean time, here is a link I posted to this forum a couple of years ago. You may find this twilight zone episode interesting:

It was not Hitler's genetics, it was of the fact that his father was over controlling along with being highly abusive.

I'm pretty sure that's not the first father who is labeled as over controlling and highly abusive. But the others don't generate a Hitler. It has nothing to do with his father.

 

Even if it had, a different baby would handle a abusive father differently. Each person deals with things their own way.

To start with the social situation was not as it is today were inter-media violence is much more prevalent today.You must examine the situation surrounding Adolf Hitler and why Germany started out as it did after world war one.

 

Germany had lost the war, so was constricted to the Treaty At Versailles.This agreement, there do writ, where foreign troops, plus the French could enter Germany and do as they pleased.

 

There was a rape of German women, by then guested League Of Nations Ethiopian troops. This rape infuriated Germans when news of this act had gotten out.Adolph Hitler rose to power on the commotion of belittlement from the past rule of the Kaizers, to a now something else.This something else, looked more as if it would be socialism every day.

 

Hitler's father, Alois, was maybe not the best dad for young Adolf then.This is as the boy, Adolph showed the skill to be a budding artist. Since artist are a little closer to nature, the act of Aloise beating the boy, may have driven in what talents he did have as a young lad, to the point to where he began to justify homicide.

 

Historians feel that it was arsenic and this metal may have been skillfully delivered over time.When Adolf attended architect's academy, he had the ability to render in drawings acceptably, however because of his past abuse by a too strict father, he would never flowers as a practicing artist.

 

Immediate world war one Germany is about survival and trying for Germany to attain a true re-do of its own self cultural identity.From the early days of the brown shirts to black shirts, then the rise of Naziism, seesmed to be a divergence point to around just before the mid 1930s.This noted political change, to where a now seeking the office of the German chancellery, where Adolf Hitler was headed.

 

Tremendous technical, as well as in the arts, science and other avenues of social development were taking place.There is only one showing of the people behind Adolf Hitler and this was the very well posted by LIFE Magazine's photographically captured Joseph Goebbels.The photographer came up to the blind side of Goebbels and noted as soon as he turned, by the stare he had given, that the man was nothing but pure evil.

 

You must go back and open the history books and very carefully go through them.Although Adolf Hitler was estranged to a good relationship with his own father, it was the people surrounding him that seemed to help steer him towards a darker course for greater then Germany.

 

It is rumored that an escaped from Germany post world war two Hitler, had been allowed to retire in a remote village in Argentina.The veracity of this claim is not known today.

I'm not questioning what brought Germany to war. Or what made Hitler rise to power. This is another discussion that, I think, belongs somewhere else. All I'm saying is that if you could go back in time and alter some small fact on the life of little Adolf's mother, and she ended up giving birth to a girl instead of our favorite dictator, how would that have changed history.

A lot of what if's. If it was possible to travel back in time and do anything to anyone that would eliminate Adolf Hitler as he was historically ; there are numerous alternatives. My example was that maybe Rommel took the place of Hitler, which could have potentially been far worse. But that is only one scenario out of how many possibilities?

 

What about the ramifications if a traveler did cause the holocaust/WW2 to NOT take place ? What hypothetical circumstances and events could arise from that ?

Hmm, I see your point of view and am now walking along the top of a white picket fence in the old American southland.Do not want to fall, "this hurts".:(

Great! Indeed, a lot of what if's! Well, if it wasn't Hitler: Bormann, Göring, Goebbels could easily be the next führer. (I don't see Rommel closer than these three, sorry.)

 

But then, the butterfly effect strikes: if Hitler wouldn't have been born, Mein Kampf wouldn't have been written and who knows where these guys would be! These gentlemen are only known to us as they were, because everything happened the way everything happened. Who knows how history would have unfolded itself if Hitler had never existed? I think we can never say with certainty.

 

But, just for the sake of the exercise: Let's say someone else walked in the steps of Hitler and did things somewhat similar to him. What would prevent us to use the time machine again and avoid that person all over again?

Avoid Hitler's parents. So Yosef Stalin prevails in Europe instead of Hitler in the 1930's. How does that change the outcome for Europe or the European Jews? I'll give you a hint. Hitler was a piker as compared to Stalin with regards to Jews. They were both mass murders. Stalin didn't take the historical hit that Hitler took because he was on the winning side. Hitler murdered 8 million. Stalin murdered 32 million.

 

So what's your point?

If we accept a world where time travel to the past is achieved then nothing prevents us from using the gadget over and over and over and over and over... And that's the rub (I've made this point a few dozen times before).

 

Nothing prevents you, he, she, they from changing his, her, our, their past ad infinitum. In such a world "history" has no meaning. No one would even ponder changing what Hitler or Stalin did. Why would they? There would be no specific memory of what happened in the past because it would be possible for an infinite number of people to make an infinite number of changes an infinite number of times over an infinite length of time. If it is possible to make such changes then it will happen.

 

Do you have a finite sense of the past? Does the vast majority of the people you "talk" to agree, in general, with your sense of the past? You answer the question as to whether time travel to the past is possible.

My point is strictly hypothetical. I took a famous hated character from history and conjectured about the what if's of a society who controls time travel, tampering with his atrocious acts.

 

Like I said before, this wasn't meant to be about who won, who was the most dangerous, who killed more people or who had the worst mustache... :D

 

By any means I wanted to discuss history and how it happened. How it -would- have happened perhaps.

I agree. The only thing I diverge from you is that, in this hypothetical state, access to a time travel device wouldn't be available to everyone. I was thinking more like the technology being controlled by a government and less like a household appliance available in every home. I think that would prevent "he, she, they from changing his, her, our, their past ad infinitum". Or maybe not? Too much of a speculation to be made if you asked me...

 

I didn't understand your question about my sense of past, sorry :confused:

Darby (on numerous occasions) has stipulated that a time-travel device could never remain secret, no matter how hard a person tries to do so. Once the device is used once, then the device is NO longer a secret.

This is an interesting question. There are numerous people who have "false" memories of the past; their recollection of the past does not reconcile with the vast majority. The most popular event that doesn't seem to match up with some people, is the alleged death of Nelson Mandela in the 1980's. Many people have clear memories of the funeral service in the 80's and of the disingenuous speech made by Winnie Mandela etc.

I do agree that it can't remain a secret after first use, but is that the same as being accessible to everyone?

 

I know my country has developed time travel, but I as a citizen don't have access to this technology.
