Amazon (UK) pressured into banning Mein Kampf and other historical Primary Sources

Recently, Amazon (UK) was pressured into banning certain historical texts – including Hitler’s Mein Kampf, and Streicher’s The Poisonous Mushroom. The pressure came from the Holocaust Educational Trust, which may have had the backing of British Politicians. Having resisted for years, Amazon finally gave in to the pressure. Let’s discuss the implications of this banning of primary sources for the historical community.

I am NOT a Fascist, NOT a National Socialist, and NOT a Marxist Socialist. And I am NOT promoting such evil ideologies. This video is discussing events or concepts that are academic, educational and historical in nature.

ABOUT TIK

History isn’t as boring as some people think, and my goal is to get people talking about it. I also want to dispel the myths and distortions that ruin our perception of the past by asking a simple question – “But is this really the case?”. I have a 2:1 Degree in History and a passion for early 20th Century conflicts (mainly WW2). I’m therefore approaching this like I would an academic essay. Lots of sources, quotes, references and so on. Only the truth will do.

Comments

  1. It appears that this ban is only for Amazon in the UK… (and maybe Canada?)
    Note: if you're a racist and want racist texts, you can still buy Karl Marx’s Das Kapital on Amazon –
    “The capitalist knows that all commodities, however scurvy they may look, or however badly they may smell, are in faith and in truth money, inwardly circumcised Jews, and what is more, a wonderful means whereby out of money to make more money.” (Karl Marx, Das Kapital Volume 1, P107.)

  2. Personaly i think its idiotic to censor this. In fact especially Nazi-Propaganda is a good example to educate people about the tricks and traps
    of propaganda in general,because its pretty obvious and not that smart like todays propaganda. However,critical thinking and a broad education
    is no longer a topic in most schools.

  3. Is it really because Shoah, or because of the similarities with Feminist screeds, as evidenced lately by the Boghossian hoax, in which he and his team published excerpts of Mein Kampf with fitting words exchanged to make it contemporary & Feminist themed? To re-affirm in some too curious SJWs how verboten the book is and not accidentally discover the similarities. Analogous to that, "Der Stürmer" is basically the mother of the style which today "critics" of "capitalism" and "privileged" groups and so forth are using…

  4. I always had a problem with Streicher being hanged. He put out vicious manipulative inflammatory stuff that probably did a lot more than Mein Kampf to actually convert or influence people, especially the least educated or intelligent, and at a gut level. But did he ever personally harm or even give an order to harm?

  5. I think the reason they want Mein Kampf banned is because they don't want people to realize that Hitler was actually left wing, not right wing. They don't want to acknowledge that their ideology comes from Hitler and thus the phrase "Democratic Socialist" will not be tied to "National Socialist" if no one reads Mien Kampf. The same goes for them trying to remove the American Civil War from the history books. They don't want people to know that the Democratic party was the party of slavery, racism, Jim Crow, The KKK, and segregation. If the history just goes away, they will look squeaky clean and can blame all the wrongs of the past on the Republicans and call them Fascists when Fascism is also a left wing ideology. Right wing is freedom, left wing is slavery to your Government.

  6. Wile I am watching this, I go over to Amazon Books, low and behold what do I find, Chairman Mao's Little Red Book. 4.2 out of 5 stars. True Mao wasn't a racist, he just killed anyone that wouldn't go along with his Communist form of government. That's why more people there and in other countries died under Mao than Hitler and Stalin combined.

  7. Mein Kampf isn't even forbidden in Germany, it's just that Bavaria did have copyright on it for 70 years until a few years ago.
    And they decided to never publish nor sell it.
    There have been certain commented versions.
    Copyright running out led to a few people selling it.

  8. All of the Allied countries that fought against the Nazis are now in steep decline, and are threatened with destruction. Reading Mein Kampf can help people understand how and why that is happening, so that is why it needs to be banned. Can't allow the sheep to put the pieces of the historical puzzle together.

  9. It is one of the best Anti Marxist books ever!…I only read Mien Kampf this year… A brilliant peace…..I would give it 5 stars…If you want to understand how a hundred Million people died do to MAXIST ideology….don't blame Hitler blame Marx..Hitler was only the reaction to save Germany from the Communist threat…Not only is the book fascinating but Hitler is funny great humor… the stories he tells are great and you can see the flaws in Hitler ideas all ready there…so even though he does not know whats going to happen., written in while in prison, not a high point. You on the other hand do know making it all the more remarkable to read…..And last especially in these terrible days with Antifa and BLM….a.lot can be learned of value in combating these scum, very relevant for today..As for the book itself, I thought so much of it i bought a copy on eBay for 300 pounds an originally copy 1939… I have never payed so much for a book in my life!…As for the history guy talking, stop being so political correct…Oh, thats right you don't want to lose your channel…..Sad!

  10. Hitler was clearly an amazing orator, because it sure as shit wasn't this god awful, drunkenly meandering sexual-assault-of-a-typewriter which convinced a nation to vote for the guy.

    I didn't think any author could possibly be more pompous and long-winded than Chomsky, but Marx and Hitler both make him look like a writer of punchy captions.

  11. Didn’t even get two minutes in, fuck you. Read up on the context of why it’s important, you don’t need to directly platform Nazi propaganda to understand its importance in history.

  12. Good video TIK, I agree with your thinking that this will help the Holocaust deniers more than hurt them.

    If you censor what the Nazi leaders said about the Jewish people, then you lose the level of malice and their "rationality" of it.

    If you lose the level of malice and the Nazi's "rationality", then we lose the ability to see that in their mind the only "solution" was the "final solution".

    If you lose the ability to see that in their mind, the only "solution" was the "final solution", then it becomes a lot harder to accept the Holocaust because who could believe that one group of people could commit such horrible atrocities against another group of people like was committed against the Jews during the Holocaust.

    "Those who cannot learn from history are doomed to repeat it." George Santayana

  13. They ban it because they are terrified people might stop listening to their propaganda and lies and start thinking for themselves, so they censor certain information that goes against their agenda, wake up.

  14. You can download Mein Kampf Ford Translation , Murphy Translation , Chinese Translation , Spanish Translation , Japanese Translation, as well as original German Translation . Audiobook also available for download in English , German , Spanish , and Chinese.

  15. Amazon is well within their right to limit whatever they want on their platform.

    Tbh the best way to stop someone from becoming a Nazi/Fascist is to let them read Mein Kampf. It is a horrid and boring book. I bought a copy just cause I wanted to see why it was so popular in Weimar Germany.

    Made it 100 pages in and couldn't take it anymore. The droning on and on about his youth and life in Vienna were so boring and pointless.

    Fuck Hitler was a terrible author.
