An examination of how a cultured people could have allowed Adolf Hitler's rise to power.
At the same moment as the pact was being signed in Moscow, Hitler stood with his guests on the terrace of the Berghof and stared at the sky.
During the "Chaos and Consent" segment, the tune "Happy Days Are Here Again" which is associated with drinking (it was FDR's Prohibition-repeal campaign song) is played while showing Hitler raising a glass stein within a crowd of stein-holding pub visitors. The visuals, music, and certainly the narration imply that Hitler might have been a drinker, yet (as cited in non-fiction histories by William Shirer and by Albert Speer) he was a well-known alcohol-abstainer.
