He played his subordinates off of each other to promote infightingand rivalry among them, in order to secure his dominance. He utterly deceived the german people, the countries he occupied "bloodlessly", the rest of the world, and his subordinates. These are mere examples, and I could cite much more. This may be an example of principle, but I would have to say it's a truly reprehensible principle. <P>Additionally, what good is a principle if it is truly and utterly evil?
