In each of these traumas, the cause of loss of liberty and unbearable living conditions is the oppression by a totalitarian or authoritarian government. The totalitarian or authoritarian government tries to mold the society to be perfect by controlling it in many ways such as: corporate control, bureaucratic control, technological control or philosophical control. Governments are in charge of making sure everyone does what they believe is correct and ideal and that way they ensure no conflict or war. The way they are able to do this is with the use of rules, drugs, serums, fear, and torture. Some methods they use are the elimination of any human emotion and memory that may enable the person to think for themselves.
Leadership In Uncommon Societies The outstanding ways that people can be brainwashed. Hitler was a dictator that didn't so much brainwash people he would just capture them and make them slaves in World War ll. In the book Anthem, they have been taught to think a certain way and make them live the way they want. Comparing the Hitler Youth: Growing Up in Hitler's Shadow, and then putting Anthem next to it, it shows that Hitler was a dictator that did not care about anyone.
Hitler was a demagogue that obtained power over the German people by promising them to create a future powerful Germany comprised of a perfect Aryan race and a unified people. To do this, Hitler had to put carry out the Final Solution, save the Germans from their dreadful economy of unemployment, and free them of the conditions of the Treaty of Versailles. In document six, we see that during the 1920’s in Germany, there was a great economic failure which mainly affected the middle class. Throughout this economic recession, “savings of a lifetime and small fortunes melted into a few [pennies].”
It was thought that negroes in the 20th century were lazy panhandlers. The bourgeoisie seeked to rid France of their current politicians because it was assumed that anyone with political power during the king’s reign seeked to overthrow the new government. The term “witch hunt” best describes these scenarios, and it is no coincidence that Arthur Miller writes about the inspiration for the term when he describes McCarthyism in The Crucible. It is through this use of hysteria that influential people gain more power.
The tone helps to display Albert Speer’s feelings towards the party all throughout the biography. Later after the war, Speer stated, “He had accepted Hitler’s commands and must share the responsibility for their consequences” (304). Here Speer wants to show that although he was only following orders, he shows remorse and deserves punishment. The tone helps to make him seem remorseful and accepting of a punishment.
Fahrenheit 451 contains many dystopian themes and ideas to make the world come to life. The machines have caused people to rely on them. The government insists on controlling everything such as books. These ideas show just how bad the future could become, but people must find a way to stand up against these things. Everyone doesn’t always have to use violent methods either things can be accomplished peacefully.
Governments from all over the world take part of censorship because they want to keep the people from explicit content to protect them. However, the government can be excessive in censorship and not tell its citizens enough content that they are left to wonder. Ultimately, the government sabotages any concept that conflicts with its own and the control of the people. First, in Fahrenheit 451 the government censors different forms of literature.
In the book, we are introduced to a dystopian society in which the Capitol of Panem holds entire power over the different districts. This power it’s based on the wealth that the Capitol possess and in the mere meaning of the word violence. In order to maintain that domain the districts are warn continuously of the dangers that rebellion may bring, and the stronger oppression under they will have to live in if a rebellion was to happen, arise clearly. The Hunger Games themselves are the vivid exhibition of the violence that the Capitol inflicts over the different districts. Its basic principle comes from the idea of warning the population about the consequences of a rebellion, but at the same time, it’s a vehicle for the government to keep the districts from joining forces and once again demonstrate the powers of the totalitarian regime.
Fahrenheit 451 and The Hunger Games are both examples of titles that are included in the dystopian genre. This genre includes a futuristic society where government has supreme control and gives citizens the illusion that they have a perfect society. Firstly, both Fahrenheit 451 and The Hunger Games have a society where they are kept away from information, independent thought is discouraged, and freedom is restricted. Also, they both have a society where the general public is constantly paranoid that they are under surveillance. Lastly, both societies dehumanize those living in it.
Do you ever feel like someone’s watching you? We may not see it, but government surveillance has skyrocketed throughout the years. Anything that we do with our electronic devices can be monitored by the government. Our privacy can be intruded on and we don’t even have a clue. Once our information is in the government’s hands, it can be spread widely and kept for years, and the rules about access and use can be changed entirely in secret without the public ever knowing.
Human rights is something really important to people, but Totalitarian leaders broke down this democratic ideal because Totalitarian leaders wanted to be the only leaders ruling. Human rights is something that helps us have an opinion on what we believe is acceptable for every person. Human rights was something that was limited when Hitler and other Totalitarian leaders had power. Document D was written by Joseph Goebbels, the Nazi Chief of propaganda in 1930. “Why do we oppose the Jews?
