When masses of people are raised with as strict hand

up to Hitler’s rise to power and throughout his reign. When masses of people are raised with as strict hand to be disciplined, unquestioning, and obedient, they are more likely to be wooed unconsciously by a charismatic and authoritarian father-figure who “knows what’s best” for them. The following is a quote of Miller, A. (1998) in one of her papers,"The Political Consequences of Child Abuse": Of course children in other countries have been and still are mistreated in the name of upbringing or care giving, but hardly as babies and hardly with the systematic thoroughness characteristic of the Prussian pedagogy. In the two generations before Hitler's rise to power, the implementation of this method was brought to a high degree of perfection in Germany. With this foundation to build on, Hitler finally achieved what he wanted: "My ideal of education is hard. Whatever is weak must be hammered away. In the fortresses of my militant order a generation of young people will grow to strike fear into the heart of the world. Violent, masterful, unafraid, cruel youth is what I want. Young people must be all that. They must withstand pain. There must be nothing weak or tender about them. The free-magnificent predator must flash from their eyes again. I want them strong and beautiful...That way I can fashion things anew." This education program revolving on the extermination of everything life-giving was the forerunner of Hitler's plans for the extermination of an entire nation. Indeed it was the prerequisite for the ultimate success of his designs. Miller, A.,(1998). The Political Consequences of Child Abuse. The Journal of Psychohistory 26 (2), Fall 1998.

RE: Consider the TCO Ayanna Smith 5/14/2016 5:52:37 PM Professor, I thought of those two experiments, desensitizing and reprogramming a society to view things as normal and acceptable so that a leader may be able to easily manipulate and unify them in their campaign.

They reveal things about people that well, are not so flattering. Sigh... RE: Consider the TCO Brooke Secor 5/15/2016 1:39:37 PM I don't know, sometimes when I watch the Trump rallies and listen to the more hardcore supporters I think it really wouldn't be all that hard to probably take over a little nation down on its luck. If you can get Americans, who are made up of immigrants, to say "yes ban all Muslims". "yes, build a wall to keep Mexicans out" and want to put someone in charge who wants to put these policies in place. It is no longer the leap for me on how someone like Hitler was able to take over and convince people to do what he did anymore. It is really sad.
