7. I agree too

In a twisted way this is what Hitler did at the very end of the war. He had backed himself into a corner and knew he had no future. Thus, he decided no German person should have a future. He even said, in so many words, Germans didn't deserve to live; they had been weak and lost. They had let him down, is how he saw it (which is insane, of course). By that point, he was sending untrained sixteen year old boys to the front lines as the Red Army penetrated Berlin.

It's worth noting, Hitler made the insane demands on the Wehrmacht that led to Germany's defeat. He micromanaged the war down to the movement of troops, and then punished the generals who "failed him." He even sentenced one to death in absentia, after that general had pleaded with Hitler to allow him to withdraw his troops.

Everybody else was to blame. And soon every German man, woman and child was to blame for the disastrous end of the war.

There's more to it, but it really did come down to him wanting to take everyone down with him out of ego.

Our crime is not appreciating that Trump is the "greatest president since Lincoln." We're tired of him, and he's going to punish us. He doesn't feel appreciated, and we're all supposed to pay for it.
