Is it acceptable, in a limited sense, and as even Churchill did, to acknowledge Hitler's oratory, charisma, industry and determination?

It would be dangerous not to. These kinds of people are around us.
Psychopaths a serial killers are intelligent and charismatic. That's how they get people to fall for them and manipulate them. They just don't have a conscience.

A lot of books and documentaries about the Second World War touch on those elements. In that context I think its acceptable.

He was also a descent artist. If he was all shit, he never would have risen to power. Just to be clear, fuck that guy.

[@1999,Dolimyte] Was a vegetarian, teetotaller, animal lover and possibly virgin too apparently. Might have been better for the world as a whole if he hadn't had these minor virtues.

[@1026913,Aussie69] Maybe if he had gotten laid once in a while he wouldn't have started a World War

[@1026913,Aussie69] hard to say. A different leader may have won WWII for the Nazis.

Yeah, I guess so.
I would [b][i]not [/i][/b]support Nazi Pride Month and wouldn't want even your acknowledgement of his [i]oratory, charisma, industry and determination[/i]construed as acceptance of his brutal, murderous policies.

You can admire people’s abilities without condoning how they use them
The only way to explain his accomplishments would be to [i]acknowledge [/i]them. Lauding them would not be.
