You can read great many of these at https://99bitcoins.com/bitcoin-obituaries Those who don't know the truth about DPoS and other great projects which amounts to the majority of the cryptosphere only believe in few projects like BTC, LTC and ETH which are all practically relics. Hitler rose to power through Democratic means:

> I am surprised at how many people get this incorrect and wonder how many of the people saying “No” are Americans that have no experience of, or understanding regarding parliamemtary government? The correct answers are either “Yes,” “Yes and No,” or “It’s complicated.” I hate semantics myself and would declare a straight up, “Yes, Hitler was democratically elected.” > > Weimar Germany had a parliamentary Reichstag, based on a quota system. The focus, like all parliamentary systems, is on the party, not the individual and parliamentary systems have multiple parties. They do not just have two as in the US, so having 50% of the vote or more is irrelevant, all that matters is that you have the largest minority and if that minority is insufficient for a clear majority as defined in their constitution, you simply form a coalition government. > > Hitler becoming Chancelor in 1933 resulted from the democratically elected seats that his party held. As head of the party, Hitler could either be directly elected to a position, like the one he lost to Hindenburg, or he could gain the Chancellorship by his party having a clear majority in the Reichstag and get appointed by the President, OR HE COULD become Chancellor without a clear majority via a coalition government… It is the last option that saw Hitler rise to power and the “back room deals” many Americans lament as having got him there, were simply a normal part of forming a coalition government in a democratic parliamentary system. Hitler’s party was elected, it formed a legitimately democratic coalition government with a condition of that coalition being Hitler’s appointment to the chancellery… Which was just the German title (although much weaker position) of Prime Minister. So yes, Hitler was elected via his role as party leader within a democratic institution.

Most people also used to believe that the Earth is flat and now about half of the US population favors socialism. It was commonly accepted that the abolition of slavery would wreck the economy. Does any of these things I mentioned make any of those things right?
