Hitler as an icon of conquerable evil

The daily The Times writes that people are obsessed with Adolf Hitler in Britain, where the newspapers and television regularly attract large audiences with the tiniest details of the dictator's life. What is it about Hitler that people find so fascinating, the paper asks: "The difference between him and Stalin or bin Laden is that Hitler was properly defeated. He's a one-man morality play. He was evil in what seems to be a clear-cut and uncomplicated way and he also got a proper comeuppance. ... Perhaps the knowledge that he ultimately failed and was beaten in a war that seems, at this distance, more obviously justifiable than most recent wars makes him a reassuring example of what happens to bad men in the end, or what we wish happened to them."
