They stored these hopes in their own Anthem, Beasts of England. “Tyrant Man shall be o’erthrown, and the fruitful fields of England shall be trod by beasts alone.” (Orwell, 7) Every animals destiny was to share equalities and to find their freedom with no tyrant leader. They longed for the existence of humans to vanish and finally have every animal feel free as they deserve. This dream only lasted until the revolt against Jones, the three main pigs felt in charge and to gain all rule from the start, especially Napoleon. Napoleon was the mighty, smart, persuading, demanding pig, and he brought his personality with him on the farm.
Anyone that he didn’t want alive, didn’t have much of a chance to survive. He used his influence to start World War II and influenced the Germans to fight for their country. Other ways that Hitler influenced the German citizens included making many appearances in front of large crowds by using military music. He had “elaborate ceremonies and dramatic speeches to demonstrate the glory of Germany and of his own leadership” (“Hitler, Adolf”). It is generally accepted that once someone is famous or popular, they can become influential and so it
Orwell’s novella Animal Farm shows how power gets to one’s head through dishonesty. Squealer demonstrates this by tricking the animals into doing many things that they are unaware of doing themselves. He uses propaganda to help Napoleon because it will give him access to power, which he, too, desires. Squealer is able to use their stupidity against them and make them do unreasonable things. He also gives Napoleon more publicity than he deserves, which leads to him being elected as leader.
Adolf Hitler 's rise to power in Germany was one of the most extraordinary things that happened in that period of German history. People till this day are generally impressed on how he seized power. For example, using the German’s disfavor of the results of World War I. Blaming Germany 's problems on the Jews, which gave him the idea of making Jew’s lives miserable by constructing many concentration camps for Jews, gypsies, homosexuals, and disabled people, taking away their jobs and treating them like slaves. Lastly, his use of incredible speech skills caused the German people to believe in him and the use of propaganda. To begin with, Hitler was the son of an Austrian customs official.
After World War I, Germany was struggling in many ways. Hitler promised to fix all of these problems and the people of Germany wanted and needed someone to look to for hope- Hitler provided that and more to the people. Not only did he promise better, he claimed he could make them the best country in the world. Of course, he is not the first leader to use this method so he must have learned this from somebody else. Hitler was many things and a bookworm
Hitler’s reign over Germany and Nazi Europe started with his skill with speaking, an essential for a demagogue. He also had a meteoric rise to power and utilized a profuse amount of propaganda. A third, and related to Donald Trump, is Vladimir Putin’s Russia. While Putin hides behind the alternating titles of president or prime minister, he also exemplified the characteristics of a demagogue until he infiltrated the government and currently leads a fascist state. These demagogues tell the story of what can happen when democracy is
He did punish hard, fast and all at once countless times during the holocaust and he was loved by his people but feared by his enemies. However, the only way he was not a “real prince” was by keeping most of his promises to his people, but this did not stop his rise to power, it merely helped him. With all of this information we can see that Hitler indeed followed the manual of Nicolo Machiavelli, “The Prince” to become one of the most remembered leaders of all
I believed in Hitler, don’t get me wrong. Germany prospered when he came into power, even the leaves on the trees were greener when he rose. But the more empowered he felt over ruling people the more hatred showed for specific people with racism against Jews, handicapped, homosexuals, or anyone else who did not fit into the class of German Aryans. He persuaded his people to try to expand Germany (Giblin 97). Adolf’s determination for Germany was endless.
All this power started to corrupt Napoleon and amplify his greediness. This made him become a dictator and he started to abuse his power. “Milk and apples (this has been proved by science, comrades) contain substances absolutely necessary to the well-being of a pig.”(Orwell 23) . Napoleon convinces the animals in the farm to give him and the pigs more milk and food. He convinces them by making up scientific facts that using your brain is more exhausting than physically working all day.
Victors often have certain crucial strengths that are instrumental to their victory, such as possessing ideologies and promoting policies that appeal to their targets and having a strong military force. For instance, in the rise of Stalin, Stalin effectively used his position as Party Secretary to control party membership. He doubled its membership to one million and his policies appealed to the new members, hence he was able to expand his support base. He was also extremely cunning, deliberately tricking Trotsky into not showing up at Lenin’s funeral, severely damaging his reputation and political prestige, and Stalin made the most of the funeral, setting himself up as Lenin’s disciple. In the rise of Mao, Mao called for and led the Long March, which inspired many of the Communist Party’s members and soldiers to see Mao as a courageous, selfless hero who saved their lives.
They were willing to drop everything and fight for Germany if their leader ordered them to. In addition to this, years before the war occurred, Hitler 's name and the Nazi swastika were inevitable throughout German towns (doc 7). This endowed the strong sense of nationalism within Germans. Their minds were trained to love Hitler and the Nazi Party due to their constant exposure to his name and symbol. Also years before World War II, a German newspaper accounted the Nazi Party Nuremberg Convention in 1936.
The youth wasn’t just influenced by propaganda posters and local announcements, but also the countries very own leader, Adolf Hitler. Hitler made it clear that he wanted a youth organization that would demonstrate Nazi values and make a stronger Nazi future when he said, “I want my Hitler Youth to be tough as leather, hard as Krupp steel, and fast as Windhunde” (Mahlendorf 95). By Hitler saying this, it influenced the youth exponentially. It’s easy for a poster to display recruitment, but when the leader of a country does it, then it’s a different situation. This gained mass support and by 1939, 8.7 million youth were part of the organization (Moeller 84).
One such doctor, Joseph Mengele, was known as the most feared man of the Nazi Regime, he was able to continue his work towards a master race with the full funding and support of the United States government. This might seem an odd practice through the filter of our current understanding, but without these studies we would never have made it to this point of understanding in the first place. Moral grounds aside, this research furthered what we know about the mind, drugs, and humanity as a
