Do you have an unanswered (to you) simple or dumb questions about history and have always been afraid to ask? Well, today is your lucky day. Ask away!

The nazis, notably the right wing, hated communists and socialists because the revolutions near the end of the war. To put it shortly the the German Foreign Office with Ludendorf and Hindenburg lied to the people to absolve the government of any blame. The war was lost but they did not want to be at the mercy of a people who they were lying to and were telling the were winning for 2 years.
For their convenience in November 1918 revolution broke out and it was the perfect target to dump all blame on. Mutiny in the navy spilled out and eventually Berlin fell to radical socialists. This is the stab in the back myth -- leftist revolutionaries stole victory from Germany's grasp. It isn't our fault we lost its those socialists and communists who are run by the Jews. Obviously this is full of shit but that's the propaganda. It didn't help that these revolutions took 2 years to put down and Bavaria even seceded as a Soviet Republic. They were seen as traitors who betrayed their people.
Success would be accomplishing whatever they proposed to. So in this case my question is who accomplished his goals the best. No monarchs.
Why and how was Austria-Hungary relatively useless during the first world war? As far as my knowledge goes they were still a very considerate power prior to the war.
Depends how you define success and dictator. Is an absolute monarch a dictator? If so just kings or local counts and dukes?
The Reichstag has intact Russian graffiti including "I fuck Hitler in the ass". I know about the graffitis, but rly?
In Germany specifically before 1933, why did the Communists hate the Nazis and vice-versa.
Just like why every political part hates their opposition; competition.
Who would you say was the most succesful dictator?
