Farinata: Why do you want to go to war in the first place?; it's a waste of money and resources.

Frenchy: So if you had it your way you would have opted to let Hitler go on murdering Jews?

Farinata: No. I wouldn't have let Hitler take power in the first place. The heirarchical capitalist nature of the Weimar allowed a small group of extremists to place themselves in a position of power and influence.

Farinata, you've decisively answered Frenchy in so many ways, I'm surprised you responded as you did above. Yes, it would have been immeasurably better to prevent Hitler from taking power, but he DID.
Your response above is like the farmer who, upon being asked how he'd get the horses back into the barn after they fled through the open door, "Well, I reckon I'd be sure to lock the door next time." That's all well and good, but the horses still need to be rounded up.

And so did Hitler.
