Modern Day Towers of Babel & Mankind's Quest to Be God!
Hitler’s design model for Germania with a dome that could accommodate 180,000 people and a boulevard that was to be five miles long.
"Berlin will be comparable as a world capital only to Egypt, Babylon or Rome." - Adolf Hitler (1942)
Few people now remember what World War two was actually about. Even fewer are aware of the plans Hitler had for a one world Nazi government.
The beginning of that dream was a new world capital. It was designed by Albert Speer and to be called Germania.
Hitler’s megalomaniacal project including tearing down much of Berlin and transforming it into his global Nazi capital. The effort got off to a slow start and ended quickly as Germany began to lose the war. In the process thousands were killed as they were drafted into slavery as laborers to do the will of Hitler.
The size of the buildings and the project itself was beyond the building skills of the Germans.
It was imaginative, grandiose and not to unlike that famous Tower of Babel. Just like the Babylonians Hitler wanted to make a name for himself.
The need for labor and materials led to many concentration camps being built very near to local quarries; to name a few - Buchenwald, Mauthausen and Gross-Rosen. In the aftermath they are no longer "places" but words for human suffering. Many POWs eventually made up a 130,000-strong workforce in Berlin. Demand for labor for Nazi projects became so great that from June 1938 forward, the police were ordered to round up any and all male beggars, tramps, Gypsies or other undesirables fit to work. Most died during their labor.
Babel & Berlin
The Tower of Babel
"11 Now the whole world had one language and a common speech. 2 As people moved eastward,[a] they found a plain in Shinar[b] and settled there.
3 They said to each other, “Come, let’s make bricks and bake them thoroughly.” They used brick instead of stone, and tar for mortar. 4 Then they said, “Come, let us build ourselves a city, with a tower that reaches to the heavens, so that we may make a name for ourselves; otherwise we will be scattered over the face of the whole earth.”
5 But the Lord came down to see the city and the tower the people were building. 6 The Lord said, “If as one people speaking the same language they have begun to do this, then nothing they plan to do will be impossible for them. 7 Come, let us go down and confuse their language so they will not understand each other.”
8 So the Lord scattered them from there over all the earth, and they stopped building the city. 9 That is why it was called Babel[c]—because there the Lord confused the language of the whole world. From there the Lord scattered them over the face of the whole earth."
Adopt Hitler was evil.
Many believe based on his behaviors he was possessed by many Demons or Satan himself.
His plans for world domination included the Master Race, a World Capital in Berlin, eugenics for the rest of the world as he intended slaughtering millions more.
Even though he may have been demonically possessed this does not diminish his responsibility for also being and committing evil.
Just like the people of Shinar, Hitler and his acolytes had very ambitious plans and nothing would stand in their way!
Yet we learn by looking back at history that God will frustrate our plans when our plans disregard his.
Hitler's Fantasy of a Jewish Conspiracy
For the Nazis’ the Anti-Semitic conspiracy provided for them a paranoid, explanatory narrative that seemed to solve key riddles of what was wrong in history. All of the agreements and treaties, all the events that had conspired to subjugate Germany were due to the Jewish influence and control of history. This narrative emanated from Hitler which was then modified by Goebbels into weekly written propaganda and radio addresses. Otto Dietrich, the chief of the Reich Press Office, worked daily in Hitler’s office and provided for him with a daily digest of the international press.
Following World War I Hitler denounced the Jews as alien to the German nation, and the ultimate cause of Germany’s problems from her defeat to depression. From a period beginning about 1920 through 1939, Hitler would frequently announce and call for the “removal of the Jews from the midst of our people.”
Before Hitler committed suicide in his bunker in Berlin he had written his “Political Testament.” He stated that it was “not true that I or anyone else in Germany wanted war in 1939. It was desired and launched exclusively by those international statesmen who were either of Jewish origin or who worked for Jewish interests.” The “truly guilty party of this murderous battle is Jewry!”
If we consider the fact that the Jews were chosen by the Nazis as international conspirators we must also remind ourselves of the many centuries during which Christian churches held the Jews accountable for the death of Jesus and attributed a murderous, satanic, nature to both Judaism and the Jews.
The Nazis’ Lebensborn Program And The Quest To Breed A Master Race
"Through breeding, kidnapping, and even murder, the Nazis' Lebensborn program aimed at creating a super race of Germanized children.
Among the cruelest policies put forward by the leaders of Nazi Germany — the ghettos, the concentration camps, the gas chambers — the Nazi Lebensborn program takes up a comparatively small portion of the public consciousness.
The reason, perhaps, is that the Lebensborn program was the inverse of Hitler’s genocidal policies. While other legislation focused on isolating and destroying those the Nazis considered unworthy, Lebensborn was meant to repopulate society with the best of the best: a new crop of racially pure Aryan children.
Yet as with everything the Nazis touched, the project spawned sweeping cruelty, brought about devastating losses, and had far-reaching consequences for a new generation of European children.." from the article: The Nazis’ Lebensborn Program And The Quest To Breed A Master Race
Chapter 15, Before Hitler, America's Master Race Program
“the concept of a white, blond-haired, blue-eyed master Nordic race didn''t originate with Hitler. The idea was created in the United States… decades before Hitler came to power.”
“I have studied with great interest the laws of several American states concerning prevention of reproduction by people whose progeny would, in all probability, be of no value or be injurious to the racial stock.” (Adolph Hitler)
"Eugenics is the self-direction of human evolution." (Wikipedia)
Eugenics, an American obsession
In recent years attention has returned to American eugenics, and its role in promoting and advancing Germany’s Rassenhygiene, its race policy that would justify the Holocaust. Edwin Black has been particularly prominent in describing America’s national effort in the early 20th Century to achieve racial purity, to develop its own Aryan super race. Black also described America’s fascination, support and contributions to Nazi Germany and Hitler’s “social laboratory of the future:”
“Eugenics was the racist pseudoscience determined to wipe away all human beings deemed "unfit," preserving only those who conformed to a Nordic stereotype. Elements of the philosophy were enshrined as national policy by forced sterilization and segregation laws, as well as marriage restrictions, enacted in twenty-seven states. In 1909, California became the third state to adopt such laws [the first was Indiana, 1907]. Ultimately, eugenics practitioners coercively sterilized some 60,000 Americans, barred the marriage of thousands, forcibly segregated thousands in "colonies” [concentration camps] and persecuted untold numbers in ways we are just learning.”.." from the article: Chapter 15, Before Hitler, America's Master Race Program
Architecture to Challenge God
In Genesis 11 we find humans that sought to control other people and supercede God in all things. Using our God given gifts and abilities we often sinfully ignore His grace and try to make ourselves the source of all knowledge and wisdom.
Then even as today we humans are overly ambitious, arrogant and as such we are always entertaining ambitions beyond our capacity.
Hitler is a recent example but there are many throughout history.
Those that built the Tower wanted a world capital, a place above all places.
Have you noticed how nations want to build and have the largest Dam on earth or the tallest building. The Russians have some of the largest submarines, aircraft and more. America has its share of super projects.
But like Hitlers evil ideas and dreams all of these things will be dust someday.

"The Volkshalle would have been seven times the size of St. Peter's Basilica with a dome 16 times larger and room for 160,000 people. Germania: Hitler's Dream Capital and Albert Speer’s plan to transform Berlin into the capital of a 1,000-year Reich In the years leading up to World War II, Adolf Hitler didn't just see Berlin as the capital of Germany — he envisioned it as the capital of the world. But according to historian Roger Moorhouse, Berlin was poorly organized and hardly the menacing giant the Nazi leader thought it should be. So, in 1937, plans surfaced for "Welthauptstadt Germania," or World Capital Germania, an awe-inspiring metropolis inspired by ancient Roman architecture. Rooted in a spirit of intimidation, the designs were about as grandiose as urban planning gets. The centerpiece of the mega-city was the Volkshalle, or People's Hall, a colossal domed building that would have been the largest indoor structure in the world if completed. At the halfway mark would have been a gigantic arch, similar to the Arch de Triomphe in Paris, but large enough to house the French arch underneath." from video introduction
