"But if I'd only known who he would turn out to be... I'd give 10 years now to have five minutes of clairvoyance then."

and to think how many people I walk past and don't kill, every single day, who might live to go onto become even worse than Hitler.

ThrobblefootSpectre: mome23: Yup. That's why time travelers are not allowed to kill him. Do you know how much work it was to change history so Rommel didn't end up in charge? Or to make sure that Heydrich caught a bomb in Prague?
As horrific as the toll was, it could have been worse. And was, in some possible timelines.

Obviously we should kill everybody we ever meet if given the chance to ensure no future Adolf Hitlers come to pass.

Killing him back in WW1 would bring up the moral paradox of punishing someone for something they hadn't done yet.  He may of become the world's biggest dickhead year later, but back then he was still a (relatively) innocent man.  So what to do?

I've got a better idea for our intrepid time traveler: Don't bring a gun, bring a giant bag of weed.

It's simple.  He was a painter, he was a vegetarian, he was basically one step away from becoming a before-his-time hippie.So change that.  Go back and get Hitler totally baked.  Turn him into a stoner.  Introduce him to the wonders of pot & cheetos.

Why this is a better solution: First, you've prevented WW2 and the Holocaust just as easily as if you'd killed him, and without becoming a murderer yourself.  Hitler doesn't join the nazis (too lasy), stays in art school and when you get back to the present all anyone knows about him is that he was this really far out artist back in the 1920s who did a bunch of groovy paintings.  All in all, a pretty well-liked guy.

Everybody wins.

Well, almost... the problem is that without WW2 happening you opened the door for a different mustachioed mad-man bent on global domination to invade a helpless Germany, along with the rest of Europe, and he's now got 20,000,000 more troops at his disposal than in your previous time-line.  Whoops!

GungFu: PsiChick: I wish I could sit this guy down and explain to him that he has  no reason at all to regret what he did. He didn't 'spare Hitler'; he refused to fire on a fleeing stranger. What Hitler did afterwards is his own damn fault and no one else's, and this man has both courage and compassion. There is never a reason to regret an honorable action.

You can't contact him psychically?

Anyway, as children, this future priest saved Hitler from drowning:

And if Wittgenstein, a Jew, was nicer to little Adolph in the playground and didn't tease him about his paintings, which he and the other boys deemed 'ghey'.

If only...


And if only Wittgenstein had gotten killed on the Galician front, I wouldn't have wondered post-1918, "WTF am I reading?" when perusing his books.

How DOES a suicidal person in the infantry survive four years of World War combat?

But he also killed the guy who killed Hitler, so still a bit of a jerk.

Of course one of the German soldiers he did kill was destined to lead Germany out of the destruction and economic catastrophe of WWI into a new age of peace and prosperity. But this bastard shot him and we got Hitler.

Shia LeBeouf: MadSkillz: "Many that live deserve death. And some that die deserve life. Can you give it to them? Then do not be too eager to deal out death in judgement. For even the very wise cannot see all ends. I have not much hope that Gollum can be cured before he dies, but there is a chance of it. And he is bound up with the fate of the Ring. My heart tells me that he has some part to play yet, for good or ill, before the end; and when that comes, the pity of Bilbo may rule the fate of many - yours not least."
 - J.R.R. Tolkien, Fellowship Of the Ring Shia LeBeouf

Couldn't resist.
