However it does kind of point out the flaw in any real sense of morality, in that it is so different.
Also, and here comes the nasty part. there are people who believe that Hitler was morally justified (I AM NOT ONE OF THOSE PEOPLE) That puts and entirely different spin on it, though I understand your knee-jerk reaction to point to the most extreme case of "evil" you can think of. Of course when the British were exterminating african tribesmen, or when 2/3rds of the "civilised world" ran on slave power those actions were justified at the time by popular opinion, much like Hitlers actions were in Germany at the time.
That brings me to something a little to the side, but from my heritage it's always come up.
According to my family history, there were a great deal of people living in Germany that did not know anything about Hitler going after the jews. They only saw the face he presented. that being of the economic savior of the people, who overthrew a corrupt government and helped Germany recover after unfair sanctions pressed onto them. These people supported him politically during his rise to power, with no idea where it would ultimately lead.
Are those people as evil as those who knew better?
What if I told you there were people within the Nazi party that had no idea what he was going to do, supporting him merely on the premise of the economic reform (which he delivered on)
Were those people evil?
What about after Mein Kampf, the book that laid out all of his plans, and his psychotic theories was released. Were they evil then?
