Overview

Hitler's Youth: An Analysis of Mein Kampf by Isuru Abeysinghe

Hitler's autobiographical book Mein Kampf, the official doctrine of the NAZI regime during WWII, is not a book that many would consider to read. Modern society is generally very well acquainted with Hitler and the ultimate outcome of his philosophical stances and will automatically denounce such notions based on a purely humanitarian and moral standpoint. The book remains illegal in many parts of the world (particularly Europe) and it rightfully considered one of the most powerful, destructive and divisive doctrines in modern history. While the book is often confronting in it's content it is still to my opinion an essential read because contained therein are the techniques of a master manipulator. It shows clearly that the doctrine of genocide-inducing hatred is not always - or even generally - a chaotic ramble of spiteful extremist verses but rather a considered and deliberate propagandist argument, one which at many points seems benign and even agreeable and always poses a compelling emotional narrative.

About the Author

My life has generally been devoted to the pursuit of technical ambitions, being a graduate of Software Engineering and working for a financial services company as a software developer. However, I have many interests in humanities - history and politics mainly - providing fuel for my creative outlet of writing. I try and integrate equal parts of bleak and almost brutal analysis together with sardonic comedy to produce works that I hope will offer new perspectives and reflect actual social issues in the real world.

The book is way too short to give any clarity to Hitler's "Mein Kampf". Although many people wouldn't read Mein Kampf it's a great study into the personal world of one of the greatest madmen who ever lived. Interestingly enough it was a book written while he was imprisoned before coming into power. Once again it was demonstrated that there is no more effective way of concealment than publicity in the eyes of blindness and complacency.
