Saying that Hitler's rise to power and the war resulted from the failure to communicate non-violently is nothing but an empty tautology. It is also extremely naive: some people have no interest in communicating peacefully, and some people are congenital liars.

Your basic premise is simply wrong and has the unintended consequence of making everyone except Hitler responsible for the war.
Naw, it were France what done it.
