    There’s a surprise ending…

    I was born in one country, raised in another.

    My father was born in another country.

    I was not his only child.

    He fathered several children with numerous women.

    I became very close to my mother, as my father showed no interest in

    My mother died at an early age from cancer.

    Although my father deserted me and my mother raised me, I later wrote
    a book
    idolizing my father not my mother.

    Later in life, questions arose over my real name.

    My birth records were sketchy.

    No one was able to produce a legitimate, reliable birth certificate.

    I grew up practicing one faith but converted to Christianity, as it
    was widely
    accepted in my new country, but I practiced non-traditional beliefs and
    follow Christianity, except in the public eye under scrutiny.

    I worked and lived among lower-class people as a young adult,
    disguising myself
    as someone who really cared about them.

    That was before I decided it was time to get serious about my life
    and embarked
    on a new career.

    I wrote a book about my struggles growing up.

    It was clear to those who read my memoirs, that I had difficulties
    accepting that
    my father abandoned me as a child.

    I became active in local politics in my 30s then, with help behind
    the scenes, I
    literally burst onto the scene as a candidate for national office in
    my 40s.

    They said I had a golden tongue and could talk anyone into anything.

    I had a virtually non-existent resume, little work history, and no
    experience in
    leading a single organization.

    Yet I was a powerful speaker and citizens were drawn to me, as though
    I were a
    magnet and they were small roofing tacks.

    I drew incredibly large crowds during my public appearances.

    This bolstered my ego.

    At first, my political campaign focused on my country’s foreign

    I was very critical of my country in the last war, and seized every
    opportunity to
    bash my country.

    But what launched my rise to national prominence were my views on the

    I pretended to have a really good plan on how we could do better, and
    every poor
    person would be fed and housed for free.

    I knew which group was responsible for getting us into this mess.

    It was the free market, banks and corporations.

    I decided to start making citizens hate them and, if they became
    envious of others
    who did well, the plan was clinched tight.

    I called mine “A People’s Campaign”.

    That sounded good to all people.

    I was the surprise candidate because I emerged from outside the
    traditional path of
    politics and was able to gain widespread popular support.

    I knew that, if I merely offered the people ‘hope’, together we could
    change our
    country and the world.

    So, I started to make my speeches sound like they were on behalf of
    the downtrodden,
    poor, ignorant to include “persecuted minorities.”

    My true views were not widely known and I kept them unknown, until
    after I became my
    nation’s leader.

    I had to carefully guard reality, as anybody could have easily found
    out what I really
    believed, if they had simply read my writings and examined those
    people I associated
    with. I’m glad they didn’t.

    Then I became the most powerful man in the world.

    And then the world learned the truth.

    Who am I?

    Answer: ADOLPH HITLER.
