I like his paintings. That's pretty damn good! That takes some serious skill.

The skill is undeniable, I always found it a bit strange people said "he couldn't paint", and then I actually saw his paintings. By whose standards, exactly? There is also really sound architectural draftsmanship going on there. I'm sure if he wanted to be an architect instead, maybe we wouldn't even be having these discussions about him, heh.

From what I remember, I don't think he had the right aesthetic for the time period and what art schools were looking for then. I also don't think he was super interested or specialized in painting people either, which was probably what they were looking for, but you need training (probably in something like the French academic style) to be extremely skilled at it. Everyone does. No one is magically skilled at anatomic realism without practice and the right background knowledge.

@modmyth I think the competition was fierce. He didn't just have to be good, he had to be brilliant to make it as an artist. Can't blame him for that.

It´not that difficult to love Hitler in 2021. Try to love him in the 30-40th. Being a jew.

Though he is just a dreamer, a psychopatic dreamer. Sometimes I wanted also all bad people be dead, all good people be left.

WHat I am wondering, how he could find millions of followers implementing his dreams into realitiy, doing the job? Murdering all that "bad people", seeing them not as un ugly picture in a newspaper but as real people, seeing their suffering and the absurditiy of the dream?

People (art nazis?) complain about the perspectives being wrong and things being crooked.

Personally I dont see a problem with it. His art is really nice.

I have never liked Michael Jackson, so I don´t have to ask me this question. Maybe I am wrong, but I think, onlly a sensitive compassionate person with a smart heart is capable of real masterpieces. Everything underneath of masterpieces are "nice to have", but I could do without them.

I cannot imagine Hitler sitting down to paint. I have this image of him in my head as being an evil tyrant all the time. He is a good painter though, that takes a lot of practice.

Hitler was a German hero in his time. People who hate Hitler just aren't able to the get into the context of that time from Germany's point of view.

Yes, I love Hitler like every being, connected through consciousness.

@Leo Gura I'm Hitler indeed, I created him, I gave meaning to him, I created the holocaust.

Note: I do think systems like Nazisms can be considered a dangerous trap, I equally love all Jews too and I do think Nazism can induce a lot of suffering into beings, but so does capitalism, feudalism, communism, or any political system based within “the first tier of spiral dynamics”. My sense of personhood doesn't vibe with the holocaust, but it is not “wrong” not to do so. Disapproval of this is a judgement of the ego as well. This is not wrong either and you could loop my words to infinity from here. Ultimately, Nazism is also based on disapproval/judgement, disapproval of Nazism is as well and we can learn from this.

Happy? No problem. Not happy? No problem. It might be helpful to cut ones attachment to happiness, it's up to you to decide. There is no right or wrong here. I can only tell you that from past experiences I've come across what I consider the dangers of using spirituality as a way of escapism.

I'm nobody to say this, but perhaps it's better to close this thread just to avoid controversy. It's not wrong what we do here, nor is it right and I think most of us got the point on this topic by now, but if we continue it might be us “jacking off” to our open-mindedness, which might also feed our ego, especially due to the perceived controversy around this topic. I notice it feeds mine or at least gives me a excited, tense, sweaty vibe. Not that this is wrong, nor it is right, but perhaps better to keep it short.

Do not turn this into a Hitler praise thread.

@Leo Gura The line between love and praise can be thin indeed. It can truly scare the ego.
However, even though conditioned disapproval/hate feels comfortable it consumes us.
The perceived controversy of this topic can cause a lot of cognitive dissonance whatever one does.

There's a Hitler in all of us, and if you meditate you KNOW this.

It's just that evil is much more easier to enact. Good requires courage and willpower and purpose and all the rest of it.

One could call this Trump, Putin, Satan, Sjejtan, Babylon, etc. as well. Or our integration of “stage red” ego. Whatever one calls it.

I got angry yesterday, it gives me the same kind of vibe.

It's not wrong, but it can often be a dangerous trap once a society or “individual” has evolved past “stage red”.

I think I have integrated stage red a bit too much to my own liking, having dwelled there for most of my life.

A good painting is a good painting. Of course it could be enjoyed by anyone. You could be marvelled by the talent of it, before you became aware it was Hitlers, then once you find out it’s hitlers you completely reverse how you feel about it. Which shows it’s just completely illusory your feeling toward the painting itself. Just projections placed over what is actually there. There’s a great documentary on Netflix called ‘Hitlers circle of evil’ 10 hour long episodes. Well worth a watch. Hitler was one bad bastard of course, but he was manipulated himself by others around him I’d go as far as saying that maybe some of those around him were even worse than him himself. Just Hitler was at the forefront and takes the wrap for everything aimed towards world war 2. Understandable.  Don’t get me wrong, an evil evil man but there was worse who fed him all sorts for their own selfish reasons. This was not a praise of Hitler btw just incase anyone may misinterpret

That's interesting. Some time ago I watched some YouTube video about his future plans after winning the war and apparently he wanted to build a giant new city with some really exaggerated architecture. Even though corrupted by his ideologies, I feel like he could have been a great architect or at least the passion for it was slumbering inside of him.
