Basically the Nazi phenomenon is mystery to me.
And it scares me...I wonder...if something like this were to happen again...would we even see it coming before its too late ?
Actually, it isn't much of a mystery. If you take a group of 20 people from all walks of life and you ask them a question and you listen carefully to each one of them, it's reasonably likely that you will find at least one person who is fairly intelligent and thoughtful and sane.

If you take a group of ten million people and you ask them to check the yes box or the no box, you get a collective opinion that is the intellectual equivalent of a coin toss.
