The world needs a non-religious and still relevant figure to hate on.
No one remembers him for the wonders he did for Germany in morale, economy, and pride. No one remembers him as the man who led a nation on a near-continental conquest out of sheer charisma. They simply despise him because he lost the war and was the most relevant person to direct hate on at the time.
Anyone who finished Code Geass R2 should be familiar with this concept.
Also, to quote the Dark Knight:
"Because he's the hero that Gotham deserves, but not the one it needs right now...and so we'll hunt him...because he can take it...because he's not a hero...he's a silent guardian, a watchful protector...the Dark Knight"
No, as killing one man you think you'd save history, but with the millions saved x2 30 years of population who knows what other disasters could have happened because of over population, what person might start what new war or new atrocity...
No. What would happen if Hitler died? WWII might have been prevented, or it could still have happened. Hell, we might have actually had to go against someone who actually listened to their generals. If WWII never happened, who knows what today would have been like? We might have have nuked each other multiple times if it weren't for Hiroshima and Nagasaki.
Absolutely not. It's easy to say yes without thinking, but can you even really picture yourself killing a baby? I bet you can't even really consider how you would do it...at least I hope you can't...
Anyway, butterfly effect etc. etc.
Also, this songs lyrics sums it all up nicely: Time travel will be
the death of man,
only the devil fools
with the best laid plans.
Because World War 2 dragged a number of countries out of an economic depression and was a huge leap forward in technology and medicine.
As well Germany would have snapped eventually anyways. The war Guilt Clause was horribly crushing. It pretty much condemned the country to an eternity of poverty. If it wasn't Hitler someone else would have eventually made a move.
World War 2 is an important time in history. As much as we wish it had never happened its very important that it did.
I would kill him if he was in his teen years and not have a problem with doing so just to see what changes in the time line I am interested in that sort of thing but I don't think I could Kill a baby or a child.
Killing a baby Hitler wouldn't change history much, some other baby would just turn into an evil dictator and cause a world war in an attempt to bring their country pride and glory. Who knows this one might be worst, or win. Besides back when Hitler was a baby he had a chance to not turn evil, there are infinite possibilities in all things, and anything can change or happen differently.
I'm not the violent type, let alone the baby-killing type. Not the drastically-changing-history type either. Save, you know, preventing something like annihilation of the human race. There's nothing that guarantees removing Hitler from history wouldn't just make everything worse. I don't think time travel would be enough to resolve the many flaws of the human condition...
And even knowing everything, who can kill a baby in cold blood? I'd just say hi to baby Hitler and then leave.
