  1. Hitler was a practical, smart guy within his fucked up worldview. He didn’t tolerate bullshit much. When the history channel does all their bullshit shows about The Nazis and the occult and all that stuff, none of that was Hitler, it was all Himmler and other weirdos. Hitler thought it was all bullshit but tolerated his senior managers indulgences because he needed them.
