RE: Why? ShaKeirra McKnight-Lewis 5/18/2016 1:23:40 PM Professor, According to the lesson and the text, these men were charasmatic leaders who, after their respective countries were left in terrible shape with the Great Depression, were able to make promises of a great future. They were able to tap into the needs of the people and offer pretty much the opposite of what they had been experiencing. They were all "men of action" and that's what the people wanted desperately. ShaKeirra RE: Why? Rebekah Kang 5/20/2016 10:00:25 AM Shakeirra, During the post-war depression, these men were able to come to power in their respective countries because like you said, the countries were in terrible shape and they were the right men at the right time for the job. They gave hope to the people of their countries that they can make their countries great again, stability, and protection. RE: Why? Professor Jones 5/20/2016 2:08:52 PM I fear that people are willing to give the German people a pass for choosing a man of action in tough times. Rarely does that sort of choice end well. Sigh... RE: Why? Andrea Whetsell 5/22/2016 6:48:02 PM ShaKeirra, I, most certainly, agree with your post! As you stated, these men were all charismatic leaders, with a great gift of gab and persuasion. Again, as you stated, these people were in desperate times in desperate measures, so I feel that these unknowing citizens were holding onto any inch of hope and promise of a better future ....... much like today's society.

Emily Mahoney 5/18/2016 4:02:39 PM In the 1930s era there was a worldwide depression economically, in which "extremist prophets proposed drastic political solutions"(Brower, 2014). The conditions in Germany, the Soviet Union and the United States were dire, and charismatic men who could offer large-scale restructuring of these countries became an attractive option. According to our lesson, conditions which exist to give rise to such charismatic leaders are as follows: "a crisis situation, potential followers in distress, and aspiring leader, and a doctrine promising deliverance"(Lesson week three, 2016). Hitler was able to come to power in Germany by instituting a new doctrine consisting of nationalism, militarism, anti-communism and anti-Semitism. He promised hope, and faith to a country full of desperate people. Franklin D. Roosevelt promised a 'New Deal' to the struggling American people. In this "New Deal" there would be new jobs for the unemployed, protection from bank foreclosures, economic recovery, the conservation of farmlands, child labor laws, and the regulation of banks. Stalin came to power by "creating a dictatorial regime as despotic as that of Nazi Germany"(Brower, 2014). He promised the people of the Soviet Union that his revolution "pointed the way to human progress and deliverance from economic hardship"(Brower, 2014),
