Hitler always showed the smiling faces of
Germany, he never showed the death and ill
treatment of the Jews. Hitler always showed
his public that he is a charismatic leader and
very strong, he never showed them how he
acted when he was alone.
With propaganda the individuals do not know what
is really happening behind the scenes in society, they
are not thinking for themselves. In this technique, a
dictator will brainwash its people into thinking
whatever they want and in some cases make groups
fight against each other for power.
Terror and fear
Hitler killed many people and even saying
that you didnt like him resulted in prison or
death. He made people in his own country
fear him because he was powerful and he
controlled the army and government.
This technique is used to make people fear
and not express themselves like they
would in a liberal society, they are not able
to express themselves because they fear
the chance of being killed.
Hitler used youth groups to
make the youth of the nation to
assimilate to the German
culture, and the Nazi Party.
This technique takes
away from an individuals
right to express
themselves and their
rights and freedoms.
Hitler used the Jewish people as
scapegoats, he made the people fear the
Jewish people and hate them. Hitler had
made the Jewish people a common enemy
for the Germans.
This makes people believe
what the dictator is saying
rather than thinking for
themselves, and this takes
away from their rights.
Made the opposition leave town,
he controlled who participated in
the elections as well. All the
members of the election were
chosen by the Nazi Party.
This technique of dictatorship
rejected the values of liberalism
because it took away peoples
individual rights and their
Terror and fear
The Purge and Show Trials were basically
put in place for Stalin to get rid of any of
his opponitst or those who did not agree
Stalin had many scapegoats he
used. Stalin claimed a conspiracy of
anti-Stalinist communists that
planned to assassinate the entire
Soviet leadership. This was the
begining of the Purge trials.
Stalin used the education system to win over
the youth of his day. He created youth groups
called the Young Pioneers. There they would be
taught about Stalin and all of the good he was
doing. He also strongly discouraged any form of
religion that was not Stalinism
Stalin always showed the good and postve
that he was doing. He had posters of him
with children and being surrounded by
smiling faces. Stalin's speeches were also a
legendary form of propaganda.
