Why not?

Oh, and because it invariably leads to comments which are in breach of HN guidelines. See these comments about Donald Trump?

This is a good point and it's a shame you got downvoted for it.

Really? This is an old text saying that nazis were stupid and americans were not. I don't think that this qualifies as "[something] that good hackers would find interesting". It must have been posted here as a way to warn people to "not be stupid" or something?

I don't think it's saying Americans were not stupid. To me it reads more as Americans were not (at that time, in his assessment) allowing stupidity to triumph to nearly the same degree.
