That was a great show.  Was what X files and Lost should have been: they actually answered at least _some_ of the mysteries and advanced the plot with continuity.  As if the writers had an idea where it was going.

At least seasons 1-3 1/2. Off the rails a little bit at the end, but I didn't dislike it as some other folks did.

That literature breeds distress.


By the same principle, most of the Tea Party and Republican Party are excluded unless they bought it as a gift or souvenir without any intent to read it.

Maybe it was bought by the History Channel as a publicity stunt, but they seem to have given up John Wayne movies and Hitler for aliens and ghosties and things that go bump in the ratings.

I was in the rare book room of Colorado University's library for a class project.  The librarian there showed us some of their extra rare things in a protective glass case.

First was a folio of Shakespeare's.  Then a letter by Emily Dickinson.  Next was a book with a small autograph.  As I leaned in to read what it was, the librarian told us it was an autographed copy of Mein Kampf.

I got the hell out of there.  Immediately.  I get the historical value of it, but it was just farking creepy.

"For you I have a gold necklace. And for Dad, I have a great leather jacket...I took a coat with no Nazi symbols on the outside. Unfortunately, the name of Nazi Albert Speer is stamped in the jacket..."

By the same principle, most of the Tea Party and Republican Party are excluded unless they bought it as a gift or souvenir without any intent to read it.

Maybe it was bought by the History Channel as a publicity stunt, but they seem to have given up John Wayne movies and Hitler for aliens and ghosties and things that go bump in the ratings.


Yeah, the History Channel is no longer into history, because that stuff is all in the past.  They're into new stuff, like the Nazis getting together with aliens and building flying saucers, but, still manage to lose the war, for some reason.  That has a little history, but, not too much, so that's OK.  They working on a Nazi ghosts, Genghis Khan's ghost, and aliens in flying saucers, attempting to escape from a mega-hurricane hitting a mega-volcano, while a mega-tsunami come from the other direction thing, but, that's still months off.

I don't get your disbelief. Mein Kampf isn't like the goddamn Necronomicon or something. You're not going to spill baby Jewish blood on the book and then Hitler's ghost will inhabit your body. It's an object of history. Hitler happened. Mein Kampf happened. The holocaust happened. Destroying the book isn't going to do anything but maybe help people forget the stupid reasoning and distortions that Hitler used to convince a people that the Jews and the communists were the reason why Germany lost World War I and thus deserved punishment. Hitler was big on using scapegoats in order to avoid accepting blame on any shortcomings. Germany lost World War I because the local Jews and the communists sapped the will of the German people! It's not because we just got our asses handed to us! Germans are perfect! It was those damn commies and Jews! They're not real Germans! They're the reason why Germany sucks so bad right now!

It's important to remember this style of scapegoating and not accepting any responsibility for one's own shortcomings. I see a lot of that in the modern day conservative parties.

I was in the rare book room of Colorado University's library for a class project.  The librarian there showed us some of their extra rare things in a protective glass case.

First was a folio of Shakespeare's.  Then a letter by Emily Dickinson.  Next was a book with a small autograph.  As I leaned in to read what it was, the librarian told us it was an autographed copy of Mein Kampf.

I got the hell out of there.  Immediately.  I get the historical value of it, but it was just farking creepy.

One, it's practically a textbook on mass propaganda. Hitler knew how to attract the interest and hold the belief of millions of people. There is no question he was an inspired orator, and gave practical advice in Mein Kampf to others who wanted to understand how he did it.

Secondly, if you bothered reading it, rather than just using it as a platform to attack your ideological enemies, you'd find it was an important record of the start of the N.S.D.A.P., including the 25 Articles of National Socialism--very valuable for political historians.

Finally, the counter-attack by the German Army in 1918 was destroyed, not by the Allies, but because the Communists created a national strike in Germany, which stopped all the trains. With no trains running, the Kaiserlich Reichswehr couldn't get the supplies that would have allowed them to roll up the enemy and reach the Channel. Then the Allies took advantage of the German Army's weakness, and crushed them. So, yes, it was the Communists' fault. Why the Jews were blamed puzzles me, but that's neither here nor there.

Well duh, of course I have an e-book copy of Mein Kampf. I've read it several times. It's indispensible to any informed person's understanding of 20c political history. I wasn't commenting on anything in the manner you seemed to take it. I was only making fun of what I considered to be an incredibly shallow and uninformed viewpoint. In my view, someone with "$65k with nothing to do with it" has bigger problems anyway. I mean WTF, there's always needs to be met in Somalia. Or closer to home - in New York City, 100k people are homeless. Why bother with a signed copy of "Mein Krampf" (an old German joke)? Just put one in the Holocaust Museum and let it go. Now if someone had a signed copy of "The Prophet", or an original Picasso, that would be worth owning. Mein Kampf? Not so much.

It would be worth about $4500 today, very few copies have survived.

In addition, I have read the book cover to cover, something very few people have done---I had to be shamed into it, I met a dropout who had finished it after I had tried and put it down six times.

It is the work iof an extremely disorganized mind, but it bears a strong resemblance to what I hear today from the librtards, more frequently than the right wingnuts.

You have problems with historically significant memorabilia?

The book was almost certainly bought by someone who didn't give a damn about the political ideology or the content of the book. It would have been some collector of rare books or WWII/Nazi memorabilia.

Just because something was connected to a horrible person and events doesn't mean it isn't an interesting piece to have from a historical perspective.

You have problems with historically significant memorabilia?

The book was almost certainly bought by someone who didn't give a damn about the political ideology or the content of the book. It would have been some collector of rare books or WWII/Nazi memorabilia.

Just because something was connected to a horrible person and events doesn't mean it isn't an interesting piece to have from a historical perspective.


Hitler was an evil, evil man who did evil, evil things. Instead of keeping him fresh and alive in our collective minds we should instead erase him from history and prevent any of his legacy from living again.

I'll play along - I'm guessing the dislike of Jews and big business, enthusiasm for social engineering, annoyance with people not obeying the government (at least when your guy's in power), persecution complex, and almost desperate search for victimhood.

Which basically means that liberals are exactly like Nazis and Obama is an ODESSA plant trying to turn the IRS into the Gestapo.

I can think of a couple of WW2 memorabilia dealers that might, although not for that high of a price.

I wouldn't be surprised if the buyer is an intermediary for a European based collector (where possession is illegal).

GentlemanJ: One, it's practically a textbook on mass propaganda. Hitler knew how to attract the interest and hold the belief of millions of people. There is no question he was an inspired orator, and gave practical advice in Mein Kampf to others who wanted to understand how he did it.

Secondly, if you bothered reading it, rather than just using it as a platform to attack your ideological enemies, you'd find it was an important record of the start of the N.S.D.A.P., including the 25 Articles of National Socialism--very valuable for political historians.

Finally, the counter-attack by the German Army in 1918 was destroyed, not by the Allies, but because the Communists created a national strike in Germany, which stopped all the trains. With no trains running, the Kaiserlich Reichswehr couldn't get the supplies that would have allowed them to roll up the enemy and reach the Channel. Then the Allies took advantage of the German Army's weakness, and crushed them. So, yes, it was the Communists' fault. Why the Jews were blamed puzzles me, but that's neither here nor there.


One: and your point is...what? That Mein Kampf should be banned because Hitler outlined how to sway people to a point of view?

Two: Again, what the hell does this have to do with anything? Are you trying to say that Hitler's Nazis and modern-day socialists have a lot in common? The Nazis might have called themselves "National Socialists" but they were fascists that fought against Germany's socialist political parties, jailed them and murdered them.

Three: The 1918 failed German Spring Offensive, like the failed Battle of the Bulge of World War II, wouldn't have changed anything, except the duration of the war, the number of dead and perhaps the terms of Germany's surrender. But we'll never know for sure.

There's no people with a taste for morbid history? I'd categorize a signed copy of Mein Kampf with an original oil painting by John Wayne Gacy. Both were created by horrifically twisted mass murderers.

2014-03-03 05:15:35 PM
meh.  I've read it.  I own a copy in english.  It is one of the more convoluted piles of shiat in print I've ever read.  Yes, it can be used as a manual to social media relations, but one has to read enough of it, looking for the reasons behind everything Hitler writes.

I very much doubt that Hitler wrote it, either; going into prison, he was a bumbling idiot who was sent alone into the parliament building to start an "uprising" ... Did I mention he was alone?  He didn't have anyone behind him, and there was no great takeover plan to come behind him.  He was arrested and sent to prison for a year.  His entire work in the print industry before that was making(and failing) greeting cards, and suddenly he can put pen to paper and turn out a thousand plus page manifesto.  I'm guessing a lot more people were working on this before he went to prison(sounds like a piece of legislation we all know and love.  One no one bothered to question after the 9/11 attacks).  Afterwards, his "great oratory powers" were much trumped, but little tested.  He could get crowds into a frenzy, but if he strayed from his topic, he'd flounder about until he got back to the "Jews are evil" and "Commies suck" themes.

If you want brilliant, his self-propelled rise into the strata of the Nazi party was one of the few smart moves he made during his political rise:  When there are 3 people vying for power, he set the other two against each other(their names escape me), playing friendly with each of them, and took first place in the election.

All-out war, turning on the Russians, and fighting a military campaign against the US, even by proxy, were some of the failings he was to visit on the people of Germany, to their everlasting shame.

/oh, and Germany lost WW1 because the people at home finally got the truth about what their boys were dying for, how the war was going, and the atrocities they were all guilty of.
//the German soldiers came back from the front and got the last order from their chancellor of war to suicide themselves on the front lines in a last bid to win the war through sheer body count, figuring to take 5-10 of the enemy for every German dead.  While it may have worked, if the US hadn't gotten involved(better late than never, I guess), the soldiers recognized what the orders were and essentially said, "Fark off" to their commanders.   One of the idiosyncrasies of the German army was that any soldier could basically say, "No" to an order, and just be reassigned to another unit.  In this case, N-O O-N-E wanted to return to the front to die, so they just sat at port or in garrisons and waited for the war to end.
///the same idiosyncrasies stayed in place for WW2, so I feel no pity for the soldiers who were at the camps when the russian and american troops came through.
////I do feel some pity for the men and women who were taken at the start of the war(in russia, the Nazis swept through villages, gathered the women who looked Arian enough, or were considered good breeding stock, and either kept them as camp whores, or sent them back to germany for the same purpose ... the rest of the village having been rounded up and usually burned alive in a communal building: this was Hitler's salted earth policy) ... the russian troops didn't much distinguish between germans and captives when they were outside their own country: even as they were liberated, many hundreds of russian women died at the hands of their own countrymen, thinking they were going to be freed, only to be gang-raped to death by the soldiers who were "rescuing" them.[these reports come from a jewish russian reporter covering the front with an armored division, Vasili ... something]

Not according to this article.. in fact according to this he already owns a signed copy of the book.


"The adjoining room contained objects from Glenn Beck's personal collection. This included a hooded KKK cape and a swastika banner which had been used at Nuremberg. Underneath was an illuminated vitrine containing a copy of Mein Kampf signed by Adolf Hitler, a stack of love letters by Hermann Göring, and a satin handkerchief browned with Hitler's blood. Nearby was an early edition of Anne Frank's Diary.  "

I down most signed books would be worth that much. Unless it has some specific significance.

Signatures for significant 20th century figures are going to be fairly common, so that on its own won't be worth much.

Now, if it has a message of some significance the value would be higher (if you found a book signed to Lee Harvey Oswald by JFK, that would be valuable) and the value in the book itself would affect it.

Here, a lot of potential value is lost because many collectors wouldn't want anything to do with Hitler stuff.

You have problems with historically significant memorabilia?

The book was almost certainly bought by someone who didn't give a damn about the political ideology or the content of the book. It would have been some collector of rare books or WWII/Nazi memorabilia.

Just because something was connected to a horrible person and events doesn't mean it isn't an interesting piece to have from a historical perspective.

On the other hand, why does it being a "signed copy" make it so much more historically significant? One doesn't need to go autograph collecting to have the historical significance of the book.

I guess I could understand the original manuscript having real historical significance that would make it valuable, but a farking autograph? Meh.


It isn't a "signed copy" it is a first and second edition eached inscribed as a Christmas gift to one of Hitler's early followers and a senior Nazi Party member at the Beer Hall Putsch. That is what makes it so valuable.

If it was just a signed book, it would be considerably less valuable. But still an item of historical interest at the very least.

The uniforms were crisp and stiff. They looked good.

Repsej: My father is a world war 2 buff. For his birthday once I got him a Third Reich cigarette-photo card book with all the photos attached. It was signed by Hitler and Goering (authenticated).
Think of it as nazi issued collector cards...a very strange artifact from a nasty time.
I did not pay any where near that price though, low 4 figures if I remember correctly.
