This clip is a little off topic but funny it does have some Hitler elements so I believe it on topic enough.

Actually, it does matter. If we prove that Hitler was autistic, we can prove that someone autistic can basically do ANYTHING they might want in this world. We've already proved that someone autistic can run a huge company (Bill Gates), now we just need to prove someone who's very powerful in politics is autistic, and we will have proven autistics are capable of everything.

Another approach, from another thread, would be to prove Jesus was God and that Jesus was autistic. Let's keep abstracting isomorphisms, people.

Exactly. Even if Hitler did have Aspergers (or HFA), it still doesn't change the fact that he didn't like anyone with any type of differences, whether it be physical, mental, racial, or religiously.

Now, let's not bring up this rotting carcass of a thread up again.

When you hear it said of someone "he isn't capable of murder" do you think they've been complimented or insulted?

I doubt Hitler was on the spectrum.

Hitler wasn't going to wipe out Asperger's Syndrome, which was first diagnosed in Nazi Germany as it could be useful and was unaccompanied by mental retardation.

That seems too tolerant for Hitler to me, I think he read something of himself in there. Cool

Who knows, maybe under the Nazi regime they might have found a way to nuture the high functioning autistic mind creating uber specialists, scientists, and engineers.

Hitler had parkinson's disease and clearly sociopathic. There is nothing that suggests aspergers.

Asperger's syndrome was discovered after Aktion T4 (the killing of disabled people) had officially ended. It was originally called autistic psychopathy and included people across the spectrum. The term "Asperger's syndrome" as we know it today dates to Lorna Wing's use of it in 1981. Hans Asperger spoke out in defence of people on the spectrum and against Hitler's programme of eugenics.

Hitler's understanding of autism (if he was aware of it at all) would have been influenced by his belief in eugenics. He would have wanted to remove autism from society in the same way that eugenicists do today.

As a child, adults said that I was 'backwards'. If I was a child in Germany during Aktion T4 I would have been injected with phenol or gassed.

When I was little people always thought of me as being cute, bright, and very shy. I was constantly spitting out facts about animals, dinosaurs, WW2, and the films of Ray Harryhausen. Everyone thought I was a little genius or pretty damned close to one. They use to tell my dad he is going to college when he gets older. When they put me in special education my dad's friends were constantly reminding him Einstein did not do well in school when he was young look what he did with his life. I sure fooled them when I grew up and never did well for myself. Razz

Everytime I watch a documentary on Hitler's elimination of the mentally disabled on the history channel I often wonder if I would have ended up being put down for being different. I am not crazy just a little weird. Confused

Twisted Evil Twisted Evil Possibly Hitler did have Aspergers, but his high ranking inner party held the leash and used his quirky persona as a means hold onto Germany and their power. They probably told Hitler what to say and do at his speeches' and in public. When things looked bad their was a plot to get rid of their strange little leader remember. By the way, Hitler had Asperger's symptoms' all his life. As a small boy he was obscessed with Art and being an Artist and did poorly in school at subjects' that failed to interest him. As a teenager he was obscessed with a girl, but never approached her for a date. He just fantasized about her. That is why I think it was doubtful he ever got Syphilis. Towards the end of his life his doctor, an inner party member, gave him weird drugs' as probably a way to keep control of him. He was really nothing more than a well controlled puppet with a case of Asperger's Syndrome.
