This essay will compare the three leaders who are famous for their dictatorship and totalitarianism during the 30's decade-Adolf Hitler, Benito Mussolini and Joseph Stalin. Totalitarianism is when a government gains absolute and total control over the country, including the freedom of thought and will as well as the citizen?s lifestyle, no other political parties are allowed and has the concept where the country is most important. The difference and similarity between their ideology, usage of propaganda & censorship and the method of improving the economy would be stated and explained through examples. Basically, their ultimate aim was the same, they all tried to make their country better. However, there was their own ambition wanting for power included in their ruling which was probably why they all ended up dictating their county. They all abolished the democracy idea and used similar methods to rule their country, they all had control over the media for example censoring media and books and editing them in order to favor their own image. There are major similarities and minor differences between the ways of these leaders?s ruling. There would be a bigger gap between Stalin and the rest because he claimed himself as a communist whilst Hitler and Mussolini were fascists.

Firstly, the three leaders all had similar ideology-they rejected the democracy idea, this is because they all dictated and dictatorship is a complete opposite of democracy. In democracy, the leader of the country cannot possess complete control over the country and is very easy to loose their position because the public has power over the government, and Hitler believed that Germany could only become stronger under his dictatorship. So it is obvious why Hitler needed ban to the democracy idea, this would apply to Mussolini too, as he was also a dictator but he might not have obtained such a strong side on improving his country comparing to Hitler. During World War I, Hitler had joined the army and his experience especially his injury was believed to be one of the main reasons for him being so eager to improve his country quickly. His emotions such as pain and hatred towards the army stimulated his hidden ambition. In Germany, Hitler used the power of enabling law to get rid of most things he didn?t want, for example he used his secret polices to arrest the opposition. On the other hand, under the influence of Marxism Stalin emphasized the idea of communism, where all citizens worked for the country is different from the concept of democracy where individuals have priority. In communism, a dictator leader is often needed in order to put the policies into practice, because other political parties cause the communism regime to fall apart, especially in undeveloped countries. The public needed to believe that communism was absolute and the only way to good life in order to make the system work smoothly. The similarities here were that they rejected all opposition political...
