Most people's obvious choice is Hitler. But that would change everything.
First, he was the second forging act of the Greatest Generation of Americans and Western Civilization. Without Hitler the strength that so many of us learned from would just not have existed.
Now, the most important part is, without Hitler, I doubt there would be a thriving Internet. Besides Porn [of course] the multitude of conspiracy theorists who insist that there was no holocaust would be silent, mute to this vast conundrum of hatred without a focus of where to place it.
Mel Gibson [and his father] would just be lost.
The Middle East would be a far different place. Israel may or may not exist. Certainly the level of guilt that instigated the development of the Jewish State would not have been in place. Which brings us back to the Internet. How many threads on how many OTs throughout the interwebtubethingies would just go dark due to a lack of controversy over Middle East policy? The Mind Boggles.
And speaking of Boggled Minds...would we have W without Hitler? If Poppy had not been President and had both that Greatest Gen thing going, WW2 and then Desert Storm action, hard to believe that W would be anything more than a former governor of Texas [suspected of burning down the Governor's mansion in yet another drunken rage- Strategery!!!]. And that brings us back to the Internet. Without W, I just don't think the internet would have flourished in the past eight years like it has. LOLBush would just not exist [I cAN haS brAnZ?], Strategery would not be in the Lexicon of the World.
And then there is AIPAC. Would it exist, would we care, would Presidential candidates wander in to chat with them? And that brings me back to the Internet.
So, to simplify, If Hitler were to be killed, the Internet as we know it would not exist, the Greatest Generation would not have been forged and the biggest economic boom that they drove would likely have been much less which would mean less of everything. We NEED Hitler.
OH, And it's not our job.
Being smart is knowing the difference, in a sticky situation between a well delivered anecdote and a well delivered antidote - bear.
