LOVE the design & textures ^^ my own design idea is similar to this type of concept but the name is a little too radical... maybe ?
You have more views?

If your referring to the fact that the name is "führer" which Hitler referred to himself as, then I must disagree on the name being "radical". Führer only means "leader" or "guide" in German and has only been tied to Hitler because of society, just like the swastika (which to many cultures was, and could still possible be, their sign of peace).

It's not really dumb, people just miss-take the meaning since that's all they've ever encountered for it.

It is actually something that must be taken into account. CCP doesn't want anyone to get the wrong idea. The instant I hear " Fuhrer" I think Hitler and it seems so with many others posting here. I understand the concept of leader. it just has gotten a bad name which no one can really do anything about.

I understand many link Hitler with "Fuhrer" but you got to see it from the other side.
If the English word "congressman" was linked by many to some horrible person who did inhumane things to, say people with IQs lower than 90, then wouldn't you be at least annoyed that a word, which is almost commonplace in America, would be linked to such a horrible person and, in turn, means saying it would offend many people?

I do disagree that no one can do anything about it, its just a matter of education. Schools first, if the student even takes German, teach WWII and Hitler then the actual definition of "Fuhrer". So kids are only hear Fuhrer used when the teacher is talking about Hitler. This usually leads to ignorance, with the students mentally, if only on a subconscious level, associating Fuhrer with Hitler. If teachers would stress the actual definition of fuhrer and its place in the German language, I'd bet that more people would be lest apt to link the word with Hitler.

Sorry for the length, I tried to shorten and clarify as much as possible.

Actually, WWII effectively wiped this word from german language, it's hardly used anymore because of the association.
What is kind of sad.
