Dishonourable ways to turn a buck, or rather a euro

Sticking with fascists, the Bavarian government is cashing in on Western Europe's most odious C20th leaader, recckoning it should make one last throw of the dice before its copyright expires. Not that they put it like that, naturally:

Bavaria’s science minister wants to publish a new scholarly edition of Adolf Hitler’s book “Mein Kampf” ahead of 2015, when the state’s exclusive rights to the work expire, daily Handelsblatt reported on Monday. “There is a danger that charlatans and neo-Nazis will usurp this infamous work when the copyright runs out,” Wolfgang Heubisch told the paper from Munich. “Which is why I believe we need a scientifically grounded, excellently prepared critical edition.”

Yeah, right. On the basis that a good doctor has to study disease, I had a go at reading an abridged version a few years back and failed dismally. I doubt whether many would-be Nazis get very far with it. However, on the upside I have had much fun giving out extracts from the NSDAP's manifesto to various lefties to see what they think of them:

  • Abolition of unearned (work and labour) incomes. Breaking of rent-slavery.
  • We demand the nationalisation of all (previous) associated industries
  • We demand a division of profits of all heavy industries.
  • We demand a land reform suitable to our needs, provision of a law for the free expropriation of land for the purposes of public utility, abolition of taxes on land and prevention of all speculation in land.
They tend to nod vigorously....
