can we wreck his bunker too while we're at it?


No, that needs to remain so the world doesn't make the same mistake as he did. Besides, he didn't die in the bunker, anyway. I've watched a documentary about what happened to him after the war.

You know, as many horrible things as Hitler did, I think pre-holocaust Hitler would've been an interesting guy to talk to. He wasn't born "that guy that killed 6 million jews", he became that way over time. It's interesting to think how the events of one's life can lead to that. We shouldn't forgive what he did by any means, but there's no harm in studying him as a human being rather than just thinking of him as just the big bad mustache-twirling villain or something.

If anything, I think it's important to treat historical villains as human beings; not because we want to humanize them, but because we need to remember that regular people are capable of unspeakable evil.

One can imagine a whole number of possible universes where Hitler is "just some guy", and someone who's just some guy in our timeline is responsible for even worse atrocities.

Well, even beyond just "evil" people, you could argue that many historical figures are antagonists in their own right. The origins of the word have been translated loosely as "one who opposes another" and "one who initiates change". There are many people who fit the bill for this that you can sort of make a case for being good and/or bad at the same time.

Like, if you take a lot of the early leaders of the industrial revolution in America, such as Andrew Carnegie, JD Rockefeller, Thomas Edison, and other such people there's the argument of whether or not they are "captains of industry" or "robber barons", and the answer generally lies somewhere in the middle but people will generally prefer to simplify it to one or the other.

History in general is grossly oversimplified a lot of the time, with the American Civil War being one example. Many people genuinely seem to believe that it was the morally righteous North versus the big bad racist South when in reality most Northerners were actually about equally as racist and mostly opposed to slavery for economic reasons, and most Southerners were dirt poor and weren't huge plantation owners. In general, it's important to treat history and by extension people as a whole as if they're just that, people. There's really too much moral grey in the world to simplify everyone down to just "the good guy" or "the bad guy".

This is why I suspect history has looked upon Hitler and the Nazi party as they have; they were about as evil and blatantly villainous as anything could ever be.

In a world with so much moral grey areas, having a clear villain can be strangely comforting in a way.

I hope so. There's this stray cat that's always walking around my neighborhood but I never get a good opportunity in to pet it. Any time I see it, it always runs off somewhere before I can even approach it. Occasionally I see the motion light in front of my basement door go off, see the cat, and I go outside and it's already gone somewhere else. Nimble little fellow he is.

It's not. SCSI I don't know what it is, IDE is an ancient HDD standard and SATA is a current one.
