There is a very common question asked by many historians, who was a better ruler, Joseph Vissarionovich Stalin or Vladimir Lenin? Although not an easy answer, I personally believe that Lenin was a better ruler than Stalin. For starters and perhaps the most obvious of reasons, Lenin did not kill as much innocent people as Stalin despite the frequent arguments he would have with his party members. He was also able to restore the country after the Great War or World War One. After the war had finished, he educated his citizens and then sent them out to different countries so they could prosper elsewhere.
It was easier for people to believe they were great and stab them in the back than to believe they had been failures and deserved what was happening to them. His message resonated with the masses and therefore I am reminded of Marx and Religion and the Opium of the people Hitler became just that, so as the German economy crashed, his popularity rose, the business community wanted Hitler to succeed, they financed his party and supported his movement. The business community wanted a strong man to fix the anarchy so that they could continue in an orderly fashion with the business of making money. Another reason was that they saw Hitler as a very simple, even a stupid man who could be directed and dangled like a puppet from above with an only limited understanding of politics
This did cause struggles in the beginning, but eventually paid off in the future by creating more equal politics. When these major events occurred in the Gilded Age, it caused periods of success, failure, and sometimes overall no change. Some outcomes of these new ideas being formed caused corruption, but led to the government and politics becoming much stronger and more organized. Most of the ideas published wanted to increase wealth and rivalries between businesses. Even though the Gilded Age benefited with the reforms created and fell with it’s poor use of money, it helped create the way we run our government
It helped Hitler get just what he wanted. Everybody in Germany was on his side. But it wasn 't until Hitler became chancellor in 1933 that the book really took off. It became a common household item and a very common wedding gift. Hitler later used the Berlin Olympics as a huge propaganda opportunity.
he also used propaganda to help people join his party. the way to Hitler Rise in power was quite unique because Germany needed a strong leader after them falling into the depression, Hitler getting status in the German Workers Party and how he control over the government. After World War II Germany was destroyed with a huge bill to pay for the war, land getting taken from Germany, Germany Army being restricted to a smaller amount of people. Germany was bankrupt with it 's on money worthless. many of the German people felt humiliated Germany has become.
The Gilded Age was the time Civil War and the World War 1. It is also known for the population and economic growth that went rapidly during this time. All the good things led to a lot of political corruption and bad deals. The American political landscape during this time was more corrupt and they didn’t care about political ethics. The business owners had more power than the politicians.
Like so much in the American system, it was not devilishly contrived by some master plotters; it developed naturally out of the needs of the situation”( Zinn, 200). Most wars in America are not well planned which is a bigger problem because more men will die. To start, a war, men are needed to fight and the poor have no other option. The rich can pay their way out by the power and money that has always been in their favor. It is a significant problem
In this essay, I will analyze to what extent was Germany responsible for the outbreak of World War 2. German nationalism was one of the major causes which led to the Second World War. Nationalism in Germany increased after 1871. It continued to grow and in early 1930’s was frequently used by Hitler to gain support. Many people in Germany resented the Treaty of Versailles, as it signified German weakness and had very hard criteria which made it a huge burden on Germany’s shoulders.
They wanted Hitler and his Nazis on their side because they were strong and out spoken. Hitler had great propaganda skills that Hindenburg thought he could use by controlling Hitler and Hitler controlling his Nazis, but this back fired and did not work out as Hindenburg had in mind. In January 1933 Hitler became Chancellor of Germany and quickly rose to power. These significant factors allowed Hitler to rise to power. He was a great speaker, he grabbed the people of Germanys attention and could easily get them to change their mind by using propaganda, the moderate political parties would not work together which allowed the Nazis to gain support, the storm troopers attacking Hitler’s opponents, Hitler became Chancellor, the fact that the German people were still furious with the Treaty of Versailles, and the depression.
Unsurprisingly, Germany desired to seek revenge on the treaty. In conditions like this it is evident why Hitler was able to rise to power in an unstable society/nation. The economic collapse in Germany affected the everyday lives of the population and gave Hitler an “inroad to the masses” who had struggled with hyperinflation and unemployment as well. Unlike the failed Weimar Republic, Hitler was able to promise “food, employment, and the restoration of national pride” to the people and this earned him national popularity (Graebner, Bennett 120-122). The German people hoped for a revolution.
Consequently, many rich Americans believed in this view, and used it as an explanation of why some are poor and some are rich. Additionally, a similar view is expressed in Progress & Poverty, written by J.M Dent. (Doc. 11). In Progress & Poverty, Dent explains that an uneven distribution of wealth will aid social progress, because it will drive people to work harder, which in almost all cases, never worked, and only caused social unrest and strikes.
The first way in which Hitler appealed to the Germans can be attributed to nationalism. Nationalism, excessive pride in one 's country, caused Hitler and the Nazi Party to seem attractive because it was almost second nature. Germans ' hearts burst with pride and "supreme love of their fatherland..." (doc 2). The people of Germany loved their country, and therefore, loved their leader. They were willing to drop everything and fight for Germany if their leader ordered them to.
As President, he nullified the Great Depression’s effects on the American people. He worked day and night on the Depression for a while at a quick pace and he did some great things in his first few years as president. He led the US through arguably some of the worst years in recent American history, World War 2. He did so many great things for America and it showed in the form of three terms as President. FDR helped Americans with the Economy after the depression, he helped America through World War 2 and set up an organization to ensure a better future.
Likewise, other agencies insured bank deposits, managed the stock market, supported mortgages, and provided assistance to the unemployed. Substantially, much had improved due to FDR’s efforts. The economy had improved by 1936. The gross national product was up to 34 percent and unemployment had dropped from 25 percent to 14 percent. Unfortunately, FDR’s criticism had continued for increasing government spending and unbalanced budgets.
The growing of large businesses in size, number, and influenced changed the United States severely. The economy was greatly relieved but the politicians were corrupted and the people very unhappy. The businesses were smart in using the reduction and increasing of prices to link all the businesses but taking advantage of the people by silencing them and increasing their labor hours really hurt them. It also did not help that the politicians that were corrupted made bad decisions for money and no the
