It led to American banks withdrawing their loans from Germany, and the already struggling German economy collapse overnight.

Count Brockdorff-Rantzau, leader of the German delegation at Versailles said Article 231- the war-guilt clause - was: "a lie". Germany officially denied the war-guilt clause in 1927. He also stated “Those who sign this treaty, will sign the death sentence of many millions of German men, women and children.”-He is trying to portray that treaty of Versailles will make the German people suffer. The Germans also hated the loss of territory.
This is because the Treaty of Versailles was an imperfect agreement that punished Germany too much and negatively affected both Germany and Europe in physical, political, and financial ways. The physical alterations of German land by the treaty led to the expanding displeasure of the German people. As Macmillan (2001) mentions, many echoed similar opinions; "why should Germany lose 13% of its territory and 10% of its population?" As a result of the treaty, Germany lost its overseas colonies, Alsace-Lorraine, Poland, and more. Henig (1995) states that, "the Germans never accepted that they had suffered defeat".

The idea of anti-Semitism lead to the rejection of Jews as an inferior race that interfered with the economy of Germany. They were the enemy in the Fascist Ideology of Germany. They were also subjected to a lot of pressure due to sponsoring of boycotts by the leadership for their businesses as well as events such as the Night of Broken Glass in 1938 and this fostered increase in violence against the Jews (Stone, 2012). In year 1935, there was the institution of the Nuremberg Laws.
I will explain why I think that the putsch itself failed, but successfully, if indirectly played a part in how the Nazis rose to power. In 1923, Stresemann called off the passive resistance in the Ruhr and agreed that Germany would start paying the reparation fees again.

The Communists believed loyalty should be towards class and not towards the nation. The overthrow of the Tsar Regime in Russia and the internal problems in Germany gave them a hope of an impending proletariat revolution. By 1918, the communist ideology had taken its roots in Germany and other Western European countries and it was seen as a threat to democracy. Even after the crushing defeat of communists their presence cannot be denied during the Inter War Period. Fascism In opposition to the Pacifist and the Communist, extremist nationalists began to take charge of the situation.
When women realized this, they decided to go on strike and hold posters up in the streets that showed what they believed in. Quality jobs were limited for women, but especially during the Great Depression (Lewis). Women had to work even harder in the Great Depression to get quality jobs because jobs were limited in the first place. Men took jobs because they needed the money which made it difficult for the women that wanted to work and become self-reliant. This left women with the jobs that didn’t provide acceptable workspace.
After the abdication of the Kaiser in 1918, Germany became a republic led by President Ebert of the SPD, with its new constitution designed to avoid a dictatorial style leadership. However, elements of the constitution such as proportional representation, the army oath, Article 48 and democracy made it difficult for the Republic to succeed.

To another extent, this implied that a lot of parties had a right of implication in governmental decisions.

Nietzsche even pointed out that liberalism, like religion, can be used as a form of legitimation (Cristi, 2010). A modern liberal state is founded on “consent” of the people (ibid). The problem with this is that it cannot guarantee the compliance of every individual (i.e. if they do not feel obligated to obey the laws) and this would eventually lead the state to its downfall (ibid). Likewise, Weber argues that because of the democratic ideas brought in by the French Revolution, “people are reluctant to accept that anyone is entitled to rule except the people themselves” (Shaw, 2008).
