The weaknesses faced by the Weimar Republic was known which also enabled Hitler to exploit the weaknesses of the left and the moderates. Appearing to be the strong leader and withholding the communication skills needed to lead a country, he was able to gain the votes he needed (Orlow 'Modern Germany ' p.185). There were violent strikes in the streets, back and forth fighting, rioting. People were killed and the people of Germany, who feared Communism and despise chaos, sided with the “volkishe” parties, who promised to establish law and order. The people of Germany thought rather than having thousands die it would be better to have law and order and break a few heads than to live with that chaos.
If a democracy allows for people to be oppressed then the whole reason for creating a government would be pointless. Human rights are codified in the laws of a society.

Also, recommending that dying for personal beliefs is far better than succumbing to a figures’ plans for life, it portrays exactly what Harrison did and what he received as the result of standing up for his beliefs. Thus, the sign is significant because it summarizes Harrisons actions into a powerful statement that hints at the evils ongoing in the dystopian society and how death is far better than slaving away in the conditions of the

Furthermore, he wanted to change so that people could have the good healthy state of mind. The term fairness to Kubic means that the world does not know how to be equal to everybody and he used the Electoral College to explain his own term of fairness. In the story “Life Isn’t Fair - Deal With It,” he explained why life is not fair and how you can deal with it by doing it yourself instead of blaming other people for your mistakes. This is why he concurs that life is not fair so deal with whatever our own lives throw at us now because that is is based off mainly on the decisions you devise.
The only problem that would be bad for this is if the dictator seated is an extreme leader who would see violence as the best way to bring peace and stability to the country. If the leader does not have the public’s interest on his side, it would be hard to maintain his power and stability of ruling in that certain nation. In times of crisis, this type of government would be a good resort in order to bring back a good government to the country.

This democratic leadership style ignites Oedipus’ yearning to save his people. By all means, Oedipus attempts to get ample information concerning Laius’ murderer. He wants the plague to be expiated to the extent of even cursing himself. He proclaims that if by his knowledge the land’s pollution lives by his heart, let his curse fall on him (Oedipus the King lines 270-271). This provides a rigorous proof of Oedipus’ cleverness which can also be likened to the worth he gives to his countrymen’s wellbeing.
would teach each and every one a lot about trying to solve world problems and make an impact in the current society.
