Colin Gallo In the matter of using some form of time travel to attempt to avert the downfall of  the Weimar Republic and the rise of Nazism, there are two concerns that must be kept  in mind when deciding what it is that one will do in order to achieve this goal. The  restrictions placed on this ability obviously require that a great deal of thought be put  into exactly what suggestion is to be transmitted to Hindenburg. The first concern is that  a specific event must be identified which, after being undone, would actually put the  brakes on the Nazi’s plans. It would be a waste to simply tell Hindenburg not to let them  get too strong—he already did not want them to gain more power and significance;  instead, an event that pushed their power over the tipping point must be targeted. The  second precaution that must be taken is that something plausible and possible must be  communicated. For example, an obvious blow to the Nazis would be if Adolf Hitler was  to be assassinated; however, this is not a method that Hindenburg is likely to employ,  no matter how effective it may be. A more likely event to occur is one that Hindenburg  may already be partial to, and perhaps is only in need of someone else’s opinion  (perhaps someone with the gift of hindsight). Throughout his political career he often  relied on those people who made up his cabinet for advice and suggestions, and so it is
