It's a way of reconciling what he did with the fact that he's a

human being. It's easier to accept that he did such horrible things

if we say "well, he's just some crazy monster, he's not like

us."

The problem is that he was just like us. He was a

human being. He had a particular ideology, and through various

means, was able to inflict his ideology on the world, resulting in

millions of dead people. He wasn't some alien or a monster. He was

a man with some messed up ideas, and was able to convince a lot of

people that those ideas were good.

We would be wise to remember that.
