Later in the story Tituba under the pressure of the court confest which ignited a hunt for witches. in both the salem witch trials and the red scare people where both paranoid of something. At the time of the witch trials the people were afraid of evil spirits, and the devil if you were accused of being a witch you would lose almost everything you owned. With the power of the church the people of Salem where easy overpowered by Propaganda and hysteria, with this people started so claim any was a witches for power, land, and even political strength. “We are what we always were in Salem, but now the little crazy children are jangling the keys of the kingdom, and common vengeance writes the law!”( Arthur Miller.)
Xunzi, in Chapter 23 of his book, stresses on the regulation of natural human feelings to bring about virtue or man would resort to violence. Xunzi claims that people are born with desires and a fondness of profits. Two prominent examples of this nature are the Nazi totalitarian regime and African Slavery. In both these cases, a group of people were discriminated against and exploited for personal gain. The Jews in Europe, and the Africans in the United States, were treated like substandard citizens, and were violently abused and murdered.
Jewish men and women are portrayed similarly to rats in Nazi propaganda, sneaking everywhere, stealing, and spreading disease. Nazi propaganda was effective because it began desensitising the inhumanity of the Jews to the christian populus. Furthermore, Jewish people are portrayed as: short, dirty, and hairy, further subhumanizing the jews and adding to the morality behind the genocide. How did these elements legitimize the systemic dehumanization of jews. Convincing the German people that Jews were subhuman was vital to the dehumanization, and ultimately, the attempted elimination of the Jewish People.
As stated before, propaganda is used to manipulate people in order to get them to act a certain way, and in the case of World War II, it was used for anti-Semitism purposes. Anti-Semitism was, and still is, the term used to describe the belief in hostile treatment towards Jews just because they are Jews. This term was introduced by Wilhelm Marr to designate anti-Jewish campaigns back in 1879, and it resurfaced when Hitler took over Germany. Adolf Hitler believed, as stated in his book “Mein Kampf”, that Jews were
Contrary to Islamic antisemitism, Nazism is a despicable ideology of the past , forever (G-d willing) discarded into the ashbin of history. Of course, this does not mean we should ever forget the atrocities committed by Hitler. Today though, so-called ‘anti-Zionism’ is the greatest threat to the Jewish people. For example, violence against Jews increased following
The hysteria that occurs in Arthur Miller’s play about the 1692 Salem witch trials, The Crucible is used the explore the rawest form of human cognisance. Characters contained within the play exemplifies the many layers a human can have. Underneath the Puritan facade, the characters hold complex, layered personifications of emotion. Many involved within the Salem witch trials undergo stressful situations whether short term of long term. The plays name, The Crucible, seems to derive from the stressful, heated situations that occur.
Hitler preached his prejudices to the Nazi party and found that prejudice (especially hatred of Jews) made him more popular (Rossel 56). Since Jews were “different” non-Jews did not trust them. They were suspicious of Jews and they considered Jews outsiders, potential enemies and a threat (Rossel
This event was similar to slavery with the Native Americans when they were held against their will when the white men was taking over. The holocaust with the jews is an example of hatred and genocide . I believe the holocaust is one of the worst event that happen to mankind history because of the nuremberg laws,propaganda,and anti-semitism There is a lot of things the germans did to make the jews suffer.
The holocaust was not just a movement to mass execute the Jewish race; there were reasons behind this tragic event. Hitler, the Nazi leader, believed that Germans were “racially superior” and the Jews were “inferior”, therefore they should be eliminated. Does this not happen today? Stereotypes, racism, prejudice and discrimination keep us from evolving and living at peace with each other. We see discrimination and racism happen everyday in our lives.
An example of a prince that would not be ideal in Machiavelli 's eyes would be Adolf Hitler. Adolf was the leader of the Nazi Party and a German politician. Adolf was extremely anti-jew, so bad that he made concentration camps to have all of these jews killed. They were gathered from all over Germany to be put in camps and killed or tortured. According to Machiavelli’s standards, Adolf had part of a good leader right.
