Adolf Hitler had gained full and total control over Germany by 1934. At this point, nothing could stand in the way of him being the Führer of Germany, a single-party state. If one looks to other countries, to see the ways in which one ruler rose to power of a single-party states, one will discover that it does not happen overnight. Following the Bolshevik Revolution of 1917, it took Stalin and the Communists five whole years to gain total and utter control of Russia. But the Bolshevik Revolution itself took advantage of the right conditions in Russia, in order to insure success.
To rise to power he tricked Trotsky, who was at the time Stalin’s opponent. He wanted to USSR to spread communism across the world. The ruthless Stalin told Trotsky that Lenin’s funerals, Lenin was the leader of the party at the time, were 26th January which were actually the 27th.Trotky that was in south of Russia could not make it in time for 26th and in result to this decided to stay where he was. After all this people did not want Trotsky to be leader of the party they though he was a bad person. In the end Stalin became leader.
Nicholas was a very selfish leader that did not take the citizens’ opinions into account when making decisions regarding their well-being. Both Farmer Jones and Czar Nicholas were autocratic leaders that possessed control until one day their captors had enough. This helps to show students the reason for the Russian Revolution and help them to understand what trials the Russians faced from an overbearing government. This leads me into my next similarity which is between the Battle of Cowshed and the Bolshevik Revolution. During the Russian Revolution the first fight that set off the whole uprising was the Bolshevik Revolution.
Joseph Stalin was a nasty villain, whose fire was fed by the hardships and disapproval of those around him. Calling him a Hero would be far from the truth, as he presents no qualities that could deserve him such a magnificent title. In the dictionary, a hero is described as a person who is praised for outstanding achievements and outstanding courage. If deliberately killing off an entire class of people and making people fear you instead of working with you fit the criteria of a hero, then clearly someone needs to change the
So people like writers, intellectuals, and artists are a major threat to Stalin. They could try to sway public opinion of Stalin being a perfect man through their works. So Stalin censored their work and arrested them. The poet Osip Mandelstam was one such writer and was arrested for reciting his famous anti-Stalin poem Stalin Epigram to his circle of friends in 1934. Another example would be theatre director Vsevolod Meyerhold who was arrested in 1939 and shot in February 1940 for supposedly spying for Japanese and British intelligence.
But he has no choice but to let Justine take the fall for the death of his brother because he fears being seen as a madman. Later when Victor is told by his monster that he would leave to South America if Victor makes a second creation, he agrees until he selfishly destroys the second creation. “You have destroyed the work which you began...Do you dare to break your promise?” (181). Victor knew the consequences. He failed his parental duty to take care of his child and his needs and as a result he got Elizabeth killed.
The difference comes in when a study is done on their different focuses in regards to building up the country and economy. Throughout the essay we can see that Stalin’s’ main focus was industrialization of Russia and wasn’t too focused on the military side of things, where as Hitler was known for his military success. This could have been Hitler’s downfall. Hitler was too focused on building the army and ultimate military success, that he was not aware of the other issues going on around him, such as needing a strong economy to supply his soldiers with necessities during war, such as medical supplies and food. When those resources ran out, his economy was not strong enough to sustain war and therefore his army was weakened.
The conspirators thought that the plebeians would understand their motives, but, instead,“the city was in shock, and people became increasingly more hostile” after the assassination (Wasson). The commoners sided with Anthony and Octavian, ignoring the lack of justifications that the conspirators and Brutus provided. They were angry that their beloved king had been assassinated by the senators who were supposed to be working and supporting him. The author of The Assassination of Julius Caesar. A People’s History of Ancient Rome and political scientist, Michael Parenti, stated that Caesar’s assassination “marked a turning point in the history of Rome.
Creon almost seemed like he wanted Haimon to be angry so he put Antigone in the vault. He couldn’t see that Haemon was in love and Antigone was just trying to honor the dead because of his hubris. Creon also says, “My own blind heart has brought me from darkness to final darkness.” This shows he knows he didn’t use his intelligence to solve his problems. He was already heading the wrong direction with his pride and it finally was too much. Creon’s hubris has not let him effectively deal with his
By the end of Russia’s involvement he was sending poorly trained and ill-equipped men into battle and was losing the confidence and backing of the Russian army. This was one of the major factors that led to his demise, he was a weak leader and commander but also he was running a very undemocratic government and this was shown with the creation of the Duma. The first Duma was established after the defeat in the war to the Japanese in an attempt by the Tsar to retain power. The Tsar however did not expect when he offered free elections to the Duma that the electorates would begin to criticise him and demand change. This resulted in the collapse of the first Duma which showed that the people hadn’t a right to an opinion and nothing could be changed as long as Tsar Nicholas II was in charge.
Who Killed Reconstruction People arguing and Americans dying, what’s next? The death of the rebuilding of America happened next. Who killed the Reconstruction of the United States? I believe that Northern neglect killed Reconstruction because they were more worried towards their corrupt government and Blacks being in the government then they were on rebuilding their country. Northern neglect killed reconstruction because the North was worried about the corrupt government.
“Few Americans knew about the Hoover’s extensive charitable efforts during the Depression because they insisted on making them a private affair. And while Bert and Lou scored an “A” in the individual-good-works department, they flunked the official course altogether, failing to come up with a style of leadership or legislative agenda that was equal to the enormous task before them. The result was sad and predictable: America got sick to death of the Hoovers. In 1932 they lost the White House to a couple of radicals named Roosevelt whose ambitious ideas, so Bert and Lou believed, would ruin the country. Events would prove them wrong.” (193) Herbert Hoover and his wife Lou Henry were the Roosevelt’s predecessors and for the most part, not a
The INF Treaty eventually led to the destruction of 859 American and 1,836 Soviet nuclear missiles. (Hoekstra Database) The amount of courage and optimism Regan put towards ending Communism was remarkable. He was the first president to ever really attempt to make progress with Gorbachev because many other presidents and world leaders had a great fear of Gorbachev. Regan did not fear Gorbachev, actually from his first day in office, he tried to mend the relationship between the two nations. Many people thought Regan or any other U.S. president did not have the ability to end the cold war.
