  •  And Hitler was an unemployed worker -- no kidding (1+ / 0-)
    Recommended by:

    read the biography:  In his Vienna days, the young Adolph was a homeless beggar and postcard painter from a lower middle class civil service family.   Until 1923 in Munich he was a jobless military veteran secretly in the employ of the Army's intelligence division.

     On his release from prison he began to schmooze rich and influential possible supporters -- doing so under the social  patronage of industrial aristocrats like steel magnate, Hermann Goering, .  Young Hitler was being promoted as the embodiment of the German Masses ... a patriotic pet proletarian ... who the Business/Industrial establishment types thought they could befriend, empower and control.

    Then Hitler began to believe his own press ... believe in his own Destiny.

    While some of his sponsors were hanged as war criminals ... others went on to be the architects  post-war German Economic Miracle and patrons of the Austrian (austerity) School of economic theory.
