Overall, Hitler’s Third Reich was concerned with preservation of power in order to ... ... middle of paper ... ...ng the Holocaust. Orwell’s dystopian novel 1984 warns against a future of “men all over the world [losing] their most human qualities, [becoming] soulless automatons” due to the corruption of modern politics (Fromm 324). The manipulation of truth through propaganda, purging of undesirable elements, and overwhelming desire for power that were expressed as fears in the novel became realities in Hitler’s Third Reich. Both governments imposed oppressive rule in pursuit of a supposed “greater good” but ultimately, the only thing both governments achieved was creating a society of fearful, imprisoned people who lost sight of truth due to the oppressive environments they were living in. Winston, who strongly desires to rebel against the government and despises Big Brother, speaks of the lack of privacy due to the massive amounts of technology monitoring his every move.
Propaganda within Nazi Germany was therefore taken to a new and frequently perverse level and was a crucial part of Hitler’s plans (Welch). He claimed, "Propaganda tries to force a doctrine on the whole people... Propaganda works on the general public from the standpoint of an idea and makes them ripe for the victory of this idea," in his book Mein Kampf, in which he first advocated the use of propaganda to spread the ideals of the Nazi party, including racism and anti-Semitism (Welch). Hitler and the Nazis had two main propaganda tasks. First, they hoped to ensure that none of the media or news presented in Germany contained anything hostile or damaging to the Nazi Party.

They were quickly dealt with by the Nazis and subsequently executed. The Nazi party also encountered political opposition during February of 1933 when the German Reichstag was set on fire. A Dutch communist called Marinus van der lubbe was blamed for the attack.

However, arguably the key factor that helped Hitler deal with opposition most effectively was his use of propaganda.
Throughout the book, he is reflecting on his past as a child when Hitler was the ruler of the fatherland. He is conflicted between following Nazi propaganda that he questions, or taking a stand for what he believes in which may result in dire consequences. In The Boy Who Dared, Helmuth dared to speak out for what he believed in even if it meant walking into the hands of death. Helmuth decided to spread his views on the way the Nazi Party deceived and manipulated the Germans. The Nazi Party started indoctrinating the youth of Nazi Germany by teaching the Nazi ideology at a very young age.
So, they decided to form a government, but soon the kids mutinied against the leader and later nihilism and terror ruled. Anyway, many reader ponders, why did at the end, anarchy and savagery ruled, and many analysts blame the theme of the book. The author William Golding says that the theme of the book is “an attempt to trace the defect of society back to the defect of human nature”. Yes, the theme of the book is the conflict between Civilization vs. Savagery and the loss of innocence. The main conflict in Lord of the Flies is civilization vs. savagery.
The Rise of the Nazi Party Hitler’s rise to power was the result of many factors, but Hitler’s ability to take advantage of Germany’s poor leadership and economical and political conditions was the most significant factor. His ability to manipulate the media and the German public whilst taking advantage of Germany’s poor leadership resulted in both the collapse of the Weimar Republic and the rise of Hitler and the nazi party. During the early 1920s, Germany was struggling with economic instability and political uncertainty. Germany, after being defeated in the Great War, was forced to sign the unforgiving treaty of Versailles, which the Weimar Republic was held responsible for. This brought forward feelings of fear, anger and insecurity towards the Weimar Republic.
Hitler also realised that democracy was failing and locked into this by creating a preference of order over freedom policy, he made it clear that Germany needed a leader, a dictator. One of Hitler's other objectives was to overturn the Versailles Treaty. He made this no secret, and the German people were attracted to this aim. With this Hitler managed to say that Marxists and Jews were a threat, that they were the criminals who signed the Treaty. People were convinced and manipulated to believe this, and so gave one of Hitler's aims more support, which was getting rid of Jews, Marxists and Communists.
In a psychology book I had read once, it said that we would lock up mentally ill patients not only for their safety and those around them, but because it was hard to face the fact that we could relate to that feeling of insanity, of not being able to cope with reality the way it is. While Hitler Youth isn’t the same as mental instability, it scares me for the same reasons. At this age, I depend on authority figures to keep me on track. As a rule-follower, it’s even freakier- do my morals mean anything? Can we blame the Nazi soldier that policed the concentration camp to make his father proud?
His name was Adolf Hitler. His message of hope combined with weak and decided left wing parties created the perfect situation for the Nazi party to be elected into office. Another favorable quality of Hitler's Nazi party was that it provided for the country a scapegoat for all problems, the Jewish people. The Nazi government persecu... ... middle of paper ... ...erman nation during the Nazi era was misled and even brainwashed. From the way this dictatorship trained the children in school for war and hate, to the way it convinced its people that they ere the master race, Hitler created a population of followers who did not see the truth in his actions.
