They've both succeeded their goals and shaped the world the way it pleases them. You've got to choose where to live. Which one is it?
I am not an Aryan White, so by default I am not even supposed to exist in Hitler's idealized world...?
Like zionists, Hitler was more a segregationist than a true racist; He planned to ship Germany's Jews in Madagascar after the fall of the French regime, and he got into deals with several zionist groups pre-war - before the "final solution" was adopted, obviously. There were also numerous "foreign legions" amongst nazi armies, some of them muslim.
Still, he regime was a autoritarian, if efficient one, which was running along a modified Mussolini design. I have this huge problem with authority telling you what's best for me, so I don't think it would be my cup of tea.
Thanos eliminated half the population then left. I am pretty sure Hitler being a hometown monster would stick around to continue to terrorize the world. I’ve played 2014’s Wolfenstein The New Order, seen the HBO movie Fatherland (1994), and a few episodes of the Man in the High Castle. Hitler’s world is long-term scary.
@nucleon: Do you think it's likely he would continue to exterminate every Jew after the war was over, assuming he won it?
Hitler was a segregationist; he believed in the separation of "races". The "Final Solution" was only adopted in 1941, two years into the war and 8 years after the Nazis took power.
To understand Hitler, one must be in the interwar's mindset, the bitter, unresolved ending of WWI, the economic crisis, and most of all, the not-so-cold war between communism, and the force that grew to fight it; Fascism. According to "Mein Kampf", Hitler saw in the fall of Germany the hand of communism and treason from jewish elites (the two of which were often linked in these times), both at home and abroad.
Answering your question, Jews were not the reason Hitler wanted war, just as much as killing Hindus was not the reason the colonial English were in India. His main reason to make war - the reason he did everything - was to "make Germany great again". He was an uber-nationalist. He was just exercizing a form of authoritarian power that was, frankly, in fashion during these times - Stalin, for exemple, killed a lot more people than Hitler did. Churchill himself advocated gassing the Kurds.
