Oliver Stone is at it again. He has already manufactured an historical fantasy regarding the assassination of JFK. He has cast two serial murderers as sympathetic figures. He has villainized George W. Bush. This time he is going to make a film that will correct other historical misconceptions we might have. Specifically he will help us to the see the warm fuzzy side of Hitler and Stalin. I'm assuming their current bad reputation is the result of a Republican conspiracy.
"Hitler is an easy scapegoat throughout history and it's been used cheaply," he said. Then he mentioned the S word. "Stalin has a complete other story. Not to paint him as a hero, but to tell a more factual representation. He fought the German war machine more than any person."From an article in the Guardian
Stone told the Television Critics Association that "we can't judge people as only 'bad' or 'good'. [Hitler] is the product of a series of actions. It's cause and effect. People in America don't know the connection between WWI and WWII."
