New World Order

The idea of one dominant republic has been around for centuries. As times have changed and people have evolved, technology has grown and stronger ways with all of them. New World Order is one of man-kinds deepest darkest most kept secret the universe has ever heard of, although thankfully nothing major has occurred one man made the attempt. Adolf Hitler and his secret police for years plotted and strategize on how to take over Europe. Backed by propaganda, fascism, and Hitler’s every own 25 points, or laws he was able to change the world forever. In this essay I am going to analyze Mein Kamp, The 25 points of Hitler’s Nazi Party, Hitler on Propaganda, and What is Fascism; to try and get a better understanding of the thoughts and ideas running around in people’s heads during 1932-1944. First, what is Fascism and why is constantly connected with new world order? Fascism is a political philosophy that is led by a dictator that by force and pure fear suppresses the rebellion of this central government. This is what Hitler and his followers believed in as a party. They believed through a strong army and fear they could control and dictate the world. “Fascism denies that the majority, by the simple fact that it is a majority, can direct human society; it denies that numbers alone can govern.” That was a quote from Benito Mussolini: What is Fascism, 1932. What that particular part means is this political party doesn’t believe in a whole, but in fact a individual, one ruler. People or the population have no say in what goes on in the world they live in, there is no voting. A village or worse a country controlled by a Fascist led by a strongly feared imperial leader will order his society around and the people will listen. A dicator never stands alone because he believes in a strong back-hand. What I mean by that is behind every dicator is a large army ready to step in front of any bullet. Benito Mussolini: What is Fascism, 1932 backs this by stating “But empire demands discipline, the coordination of all forces and a deeply felt sense of duty and sacrifice.” This type of leadership lead to The 25 Points of Hitler’s Nazi Party. Before continuing with Hitler’s 25 points of his Nazi party how did he come to become an icon and leader of Germany in the first place? According to . N.p.. Web. 9 Dec 2012. <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Adolf_Hitler's_rise_to_power>. “Hitler came into power mid September 1922”. In 1920 he was able to infiltrate the DAP later known as the Nazi party. He was able to take the original members and transform into a strong and powerful party. At first no one takes him seriously, it isn’t until Hindenburg dies 1934 and Hitler replaces his position. Hitler is able gain more followers and a loyalist population. He persuades them with many opportunities and benefits that weren’t seen or heard of for many years: such as jobs, and stability. In 25 points of Hitler’s Nazi Party it states
“13. We demand the nationalization of all trusts.
14. We demand profit-sharing in large industries.
15. We demand a generous increase in old-age pensions. “
These are all things the people of Germany felt were good and well deserved for their country. Soon after coming into power Hitler changed the oath to praising himself not Germany. He continued to create these ‘Youth’ programs. Now these weren’t our today boy scouts and girl scouts. He used propaganda to get youth boys into military training and women into home care and child rising.

After Hitler was able to rise to the top he released his 25 points to the Nazi party. Each of his points were another law that all had to abide by and obey. One of Hitler’s points were right to choose a government and to have laws depends on the state. Now Hitler the smart man he was told people this but did not follow through with it because he was a fascist. He was a dicator and led the country with his word and his word alone. In Adolf Hitler, Mein Kampf, translated by Ralph Manheim. Boston: Houghton Mifflin Company, 1943. He states “The art of propaganda lies in understanding the emotional ideas of the great masses and finding, through a psychologically correct form, the way to the attention and thence to the heart of the broad masses. The fact that our bright boys do not understand this merely shows how mentally lazy and conceited they are.” This is Hitler’s own words on propaganda and how its used. Ironic isn’t it, he basically exposes himself and tells his soon to be followers how he plans on manipulating them into abiding what he says. He understands exactly what the people want mentally and psychically , so what does he do he promises them by using different forms of media; such as newspapers’, TV, bulletins, and radio speeches. Another bold statement made by Hitler in 25 Points of Hitler’s Nazi Party “In order to carry out this program we demand: the creation of a strong central authority in the State, the unconditional authority by the political central parliament of the whole State and all its organizations” It continues to say ….”The leaders of the party undertake to promote the execution of the foregoing points at all costs, if necessary at the sacrifice of their own ,lives.” Hitler had these people promising to sacrifice their own lives to ensure his bidings were properly excuted.
With Hitler’s 22nd point he “demands the abolition of the regular army and the creation of a national (folk) army.” This new army becomes his large Nazi army. The difference between the regular army and his new army was first of all the size. Ordinarily there were 100,000 soldiers, after Hitler’s say in it there were 2.5 million soldiers. Out of this large number more than half of them were well trained military leaders. This gave Hitler the advantage he needed to start his New World Order. Hitler believes that every race has a lowest class that is needed to be stepped on for the rest to advance. In Mein Kampf by Adolf Hitler on page 355 he writes “ the Aryan would never have been able to take his first steps toward his future culture, without the help of various suitable beasts which he knew how to tame.” We all know who Hitler felt this was the Jewish population, and the mentally challenged as well as others. He contines to compare horses to cars and the connect to what he feels is the lower class. It sounds a little confusing but it makes sense. “..but without his previous collaboration man might have had a hard time getting where he is today” Mein Kampf page 356. What he means by this is without us abusing the horse and learning the ways to manipulate and harness his strength and power. We were able to rise and create better and more powerful world for ourselves using this same idea. Hitler believes that by killing or forcing labor upon all Jewish, mentally disabled, homosexual, dark skinned people, and anyone else who attempted to disobey him, he would be using his horse to the max. Today’s present day view on New World Order hasn’t changed much. Its still present in today’s media and manages to surface to the public every once and a while. Why is it on the news every story we hear and see is sad and horrible? It’s because New World Order followers continue to use fear just as Hitler did in present day. If we as a society are in constant fear of our backyard then slowly but surely we are falling under the trap. This order executes most of the population as Hitler attempted to do at the start of the Second World War, a mass genocide. Even today the “secret police” are still around. Every once and a while a murder takes place most likey more than we are aware of and kills someone who tries to expose those who believe in the same policitcal party as Hitler. New World Order believers are always good at cleaning up their tracks, whether they try and censor someone or even if they are silencing themselves. In conclusion throughout this essay I was able to break down bits and pieces passages from Mein Kampf by Adolf Hitler, 25 Points of Hitler’s Nazi Party, Hitler on Propaganda, and What is Fascism. To get a better understanding of the mind set during this particular time period after World War 1 and right before World War 11. As well as analyze the ideas behind New World Order

    methods of propaganda. In Hitler’s Mein Kampf, he describes one of the main approaches to propaganda – repetition. He says, “[The] slogans should be persistently repeated until the very last individual has come to grasp the idea that has been put forward.” This provides insight on propaganda as a technique because he states (and restates) that repetition is a very effective way of making sure the message stays in the readers mind. The next citation I’ve come to choose is, “all effective propaganda must…

    Although it is thought of as having been 'written' by Hitler, Mein Kampf is not a book in the usual sense. Hitler never actually sat down and pecked at a typewriter or wrote longhand, but instead dictated it to Rudolph Hess while pacing around his prison cell in 1923-24 and later at an inn at Berchtesgaden. Reading Mein Kampf is like listening to Hitler speak at length about his youth, early days in the Nazi Party, future plans for Germany, and ideas on politics and race. The original…

    important factor in Nazi Germany. When he wrote ‘Mein Kampf’ while serving out a prison sentence at Landsberg, Hitler wrote “whoever has the youth has the future”. In Hitler’s Germany, education would be the key that ensured that he had “the youth” of Germany.
