The inevitability of anything can logically be subverted by saying that people have free will. In the case of Hitler and the reasons and consequences of his getting in to power because of the Weimar Constitution is simply not true because the people of Germany also have free will which means they can choose to either follow the Constitution or not. No Constitution could work unless people work with it, and within it.

President and Chancellorís power in times of emergency. It is the duty of the people, like Hindenburg, who were in power to be the check and not allow for the abuse of power. One must separate the Weimar Constitution as something that may have allowed Hitler to get power and the Weimar Constitution as something, in and of itself, the reason a man like Hitler got his power.
