It very well could. I believe one of his famous quotes went along the lines of "If you tell a big enough lie and tell it often enough, it will be believed." The reason Hitler was more successful than many dictators is because he got to the top by way of diplomacy. If you can gradually snake your way into the hearts and minds of a people and their ruling body, you can seize them and gain control. And that he did. His image hid his intentions well. He was doing great things for Germany and it took a while before people really realized what he was ever so gradually doing. The reason he so easily won over the people was his excellent oration and the fact he was living his intentions. He had reasons he thought to be logical behind his conquests and attacks on the Jews. He lived it, therefore his people did too. It really isn't that hard if you take a step back and look at the minds and patterns of people through a deeper perspective. Anyone who knows this could become the next Hitler. Determined, logical, brilliant, and most important of all: sly. You have to be the devious and crafty son of a bitch that Hitler was. It took him so long to rise to the top because he was so careful and gradual. He gained the trust of his targets and left nothing to chance. We could all learn a thing from his ambition and careful reasoning.
