Many historians look at this issue with hindsight, comparing Hitler’s government to the model of one today. Instead, Hitler’s government should be analysed while keeping in mind that Germany was a totalitarian state. Since the country believes in a one ruler system, the government is very likely to be structured similarly as well. This in turn raises the question, through the system Hitler implemented, how were politicians able to prove themselves worthy of power to Hitler? Did this structure of the government truly hinder the rise of these politicians?
The movie depicts the despotic rule of the government and how it curtailed the freedom of the people. An interesting thing about the government is that its past is similar to Hitler’s reign. The concentration camp, hatred against a particular community, the superiority over all and using secret police to control the public and use fear to prevent any uprising are some of the examples which show the resemblance in the Chancellor Sutler’s persona and style of ruling. He came to power in a difficult time when England was under political unrest and economic troubles and used the condition to their benefit by winning elections
Absolute power can make the reader think that they are god like. And if the leaders think that they are god like they assume that they are at higher power. They start believing they they have a god like complex so they think that they can do things like lie, bend the rules, shoplift, and that they are above the law. For example, Hitler thought that he was above the law and that it was his duty in life to kill all those Innocent Jews and fooling everybody in other places unaware of the millions being killed Hitler told all that the camps were Red Cross camps for the needy. He let the power get to his head and started believing that he was above the law so he started lying to all and manipulating and threatening innocent people to death if they did not participate in the moment that he thought was the correct one.
Hitler was a powerful speaker. He told the people what they wanted to hear. Hitler planned organized the execution of thousands of jews, homosexuals, and Gypsies. Everything that went wrong he blamed on the Jews. They feared Hitler because he threatened to potentially wipe out and entire group of people.
However, Big Brother has taken on forms and people whom may never have been expected. Big Brother not only has total control of surveillance, but of history as a whole. O 'Brien told Winston to repeat, “Who controls the past controls the future; who controls the present controls the past.” (p. 204) Oceania changes history on a regular basis to fit the political environment and decisions. Such acts made the populace more ignorant and reliant on the government for information. The dangerous and heinous acts committed with no doubt cause extreme aggression.
Julius Caesar led many attacks to expand Rome’s empire into northern Gaul which helped Rome to conquer most of modern day Europe.

The site goes on to explain that a great example of Julius Caesar’s war strategies is when he was in his thirties when he was sent over to Hispania to deal with a very violent group of rebels.
A guiding ideology is one of the most important features of a totalitarian regime, since it gives the people a reason to be united and loyal to their government. The Nazi Party had a theory that the Aryan race, which the German people were a part of, was superior to all others. Also, the party itself was seen as a way of life dedicated to the re-birth of the nation, rather than one more political party amongst many. Finally, the interests of the state always came before the interests of the individuals, which was something promoted by the government. All of these aspects show how indoctrinated the German population was towards their government.
Because of the great power that Hitler had, plenty of his political opponents would be commanded to be scared away or executed. An example of his aggression towards his opponents/enemies is the “Night of the Long Knifes”, where 77 political leaders were executed on his orders. Soon the SA (a Nazi paramilitary group) got complete power and allowed to arrest anyone that did something bad and were seen, it made them
Out of the two world wars, World War II is known to be the bloodiest and brutal war. The main reason this is to believed is because to the Holocaust. The Holocaust was the time period where many were persecuted for their beliefs and race. Hitler is who is to blame for the Holocaust, he is the one who organized all the horrific things done to the people who did not fall under his Master Race. Despite the many theories about the purpose of the Holocaust, the real purpose make those who weren’t members of the Master Race fear the Nazi Regime, to force them to obey the Nazi’s without question.
