1913 Hitler, Trotsky, Tito, Freud & Stalin

5 posts in this topic

Didn't really know where to post this so weird bizzare and offbeat it is :yes:

From the article:

Trotsky and Stalin were just two of a number of men who lived in central Vienna in 1913 and whose lives were destined to mould, indeed to shatter, much of the 20th century.

It was a disparate group. The two revolutionaries, Stalin and Trotsky, were on the run. Sigmund Freud was already well established.

The psychoanalyst, exalted by followers as the man who opened up the secrets of the mind, lived and practised on the city's Berggasse.

The young Josip Broz, later to find fame as Yugoslavia's leader Marshal Tito, worked at the Daimler automobile factory in Wiener Neustadt, a town south of Vienna, and sought employment, money and good times.

Then there was the 24-year-old from the north-west of Austria whose dreams of studying painting at the Vienna Academy of Fine Arts had been twice dashed and who now lodged in a doss-house in Meldermannstrasse near the Danube, one Adolf Hitler.

There are no coincidences.

It was probably easier for the Devil to keep them all in one neighbourhood so he doesn't have to travel around much while giving them instructions.

Hardly surprising really, when you realise that during the second half of the 19th and the first 30 years of the 20th Centuries, Vienna was the 'in' place where everything was happening.The city was a centre of high culture and modernism and remained comparatively untouched by the economic and industrial turmoil that affected most of Western Europe at that time - a sort of 'Silicone Valley' of its time.

I don't understand the reference to the Austrian Empire 'imploding' in 1918. The Austrian Empire may have ceased to exist, but Vienna continued to expand and flourish right up until the Anschluss of 1938.

Sounds like the Cafe was the equivalent of the internet today to get your message out discuss hot topics and ideas.

Austrian Empire indeed didn’t “implode”, it was ripped apart between the winners of the WWI. With absolutely zero regards for rights and well-being of populations being traded. But that's what wars are for.

Josip Broz (later a man under that identity will become Marshal Tito) was hardly literate locksmith from Hrvatsko Zagorje. It’s a province in Croatia.

So it is surprising he was drawn to flourishing Vienna, right before entering Austro-Hungarian army where officers deemed him stupid. The great infallible Marshal Tito. In fact, everything about him is surprising. Josip Broz was the only known man in history of mankind to grow severed finger back. He was also the only man who got out WWI Russian POW camp with newly acquired piano playing skill, which is probably why he grew a finger back.

He was the only man ever who learned foreign languages so well he forgot his own mother tongue and never got the accent right.

Then he was the only satellite dictator who seemingly refused Stalin and yet Stalin didn’t invade ex-Yugoslavia.

Back to time between WWs: in the darkest depth of economic breakdown of 1930s, Tito lived on mysterious source of income so he didn’t have to actually work. Instead, he was chasing women and plotting against competition in the top of Communist party.

And so on.

It’s almost a shame this godforsakenlandia is insignificant enough Tito and other phenomena are not studied enough. Everything you need to prove existence of some of the nastiest conspiracies can be found here, in this area’s history.
