    Mao, Stalin and Hitler was obsessive with power and control. The more power, the more craziness. If people said or did something the dictators didn’t like, they got punished. They either got send to prison-camp or got killed. Even though the directors was cruel and evil, they got most of the people under their power to think they were nice. One of the ways to trick them into thinking that, was to make a propaganda movie. The movie told lies, thoughts, and showed a side of their life that wasn’t true. The cold blooded dictators was the worst dictators in world history, and they made life’s of millions of people a living hell.

    Mao, Stalin and Hitler started with their kindness and ended with blood. They first tempted their citizens with perfect speeches and great promises. They started instance projects that people bearly did it and when they couldn’t do it, they teached them with force and fear.

      Mao, Stalin and Hitler started with their kindness and ended with blood. They first tempted their citizens with perfect speeches and great promises. Propaganda posters and films were the most popular ways to get them tempted. They started instance projects that people bearly did it and when they couldn‚Äôt do it, they teached them with force and prison camps. However not all projects were successful and when it was the case, it caused many kinds of problems such as starvation. Rather their projects were succesful or not, they had disagreements between the intellectual who thought government needed change. All three of them reacted in the same way to the intellectual by punishing them with force. As the intellectual disappeared from the government , it became a better place for three of them to rule the country. No matter how sweet and kind they are, don’t believe them because, no one knows when they will change.

    Hitler, Mao and Stalin were the world’s cruelest of dictators who without mercy led their countries into a time of starvation, social breakdown, excess labor, punishment and war. Thousands died as they resisted the strict regimes, and whole families scattered. Both Mao and Stanlin introduced communism in China and Russia where the peasant class tookover, and the upper class was removed. It was Hitler who wanted to clean Germany of the Jews and the other non-Gremans. His dictatorship was to rebuild Germany on the basis of superiority of the Aryan race. He sent 20000 Jews to the concentration camps leading his people into World War 2. For Mao and Stalin, it was the idea of ‘labor’ that made them start bloody revolutions by the proletariat against the nobility. All three commanded power and absolute surrender to them. They had extream personalities, full of ruthless, tormenting and sinful actions.

    Stalin, Mao and Hitler controled the power so people followed the powerful people. They controled the not only power. They also used the speeches. They gave to cheer and morale to cityzen. Who have a power people lure the people .So they could make a crowdand They used power for people and war. That time people followed strong people so Mao, Stalin and Hitler could use the power and got the honor

    • HanKyeol Kim says:

      Mao of the Communist Party of China believed in the power of the masses. He spent the power for farmers and the poor peolple. He used that power to destory the boundary between the rural and the urban, but gave the working class false promises.
      Stalin, the Soviet dictator of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republic ruled from 1929 to 1953 as Lenin’s successor, the former general secretary of the Communist Party. While He led the Soviet Union many people died from the war. So we call him dictator.He was cruel and many died because of starvation.
      Hitler led Germany into a world war for his policy of expansion. His superior thinking of being aryan made him killed the Jews. He set up concentration camps to torture and kill thounsand of Jews.
      All these dictators achieved nothing.Only china is a successful country after many changes.

    As the three different, but also similar dictators appeared, whole countries were faltered and replaced during 20th century. In China, Russia and Germany, each country had a ruthless leader who had absolute power among the nation. Three guys, Joseph Stalin, Mao Zedong and Adolf Hitler were the autocrat in the countries who wanted to be the number one and tried to brainwash people to think, they are the best..They were self-assertive, therefore if someone disagreed with them, they killed them or sent to the farm camp. At that time, all of sudden, neighbor were dragged by subordinates of dictators and forced to work on farms constantly and continuously. Moreover, dictators didn‚Äôt like educated people who were able to lead people. They thought intelligent people who knew what the right behaviors are, could interrupt them. They didn‚Äôt trust anybody and just killed and killed people with no reasons. They pretend, they were only one who could solve problems and direct teachers to teach their achievement to children. Forcing, forcing and forcing were their ways to control people, until they died. Under Joseph Stalin, Mao Zedong and Adolf Hitler’s control, country had been corrupted every minute. More than half of people were starving and rests of guys were killed, but nation just told advantages and lied to be safe. Since they became a director in a country, they didn‚Äôt change the ways to control people by violence, forced, used speeches and posters. Moreover, they didn‚Äôt stop dominated people until they died.

    The three greatest dictators, Hitler, Mao and Stalin started with a normal, common life like everyone else. But during their life time, there was an evolution. They became the greatest dictator by using advertisement, which is called propaganda. They lied through the advertisement and lured people to believe that its truth and others are false. They also used their army to send people to the prison camp or kill all the people without mercy who would stand up to them. Hitler, Mao and Stalin wanted their country to be powerful and wealth and equal but it ended up with starvation and without improvement and freedom.

  7. 17hji says:

    If you get power and money, even the person who lived high integrity and faith, you become arrogant. Mao, Stalin and Hitler were obsessive with power and control. The more people die, the more craziness. If the people whose against dictator, they got cruelly punished and persecuted. (Execution, either torture or got send to prison camp) But sometimes, I’m really curious about what skills the dictators to make people to follow them. One of the ways to trick them into thinking was to make a propaganda movie. The movie told lies, thoughts, and dictators’ persuasive speeches. These dark times have to remove in our history and not anymore. They made millions of people to living hell.

    The pig represents these three; Hitler, Mao and Stalin. They all three were leader of the country. They were not in good condition when they were young, underpaid from peasant parents. When they became leaders, they thought themselves as the best. And made people also think as him that he is the best. Often showed the acts like angel, on the other hand acted like cruel devil in secret. They didn’t want any other people to think bad about themselves. Also wanted people to don’t know about their bad things so they killed all people who has knowledge and burnt all books. By their leading of country, a lot of people lost life and the way to study.

    By the skillful and sustained use of propaganda, they could make the people see even heaven as hell or extremely wretched life as paradise. In 20th century, countries have been in disequilibrium and shifted by three vicious autocrat Mao, Hitler and Stain who had absolute power among the nation and certainly control the people. Their early childhood weren’t belong to those any upper crust, each of them were lower orders. It made them to have such a burning ambition. During the evolution, they lied to people that they were the only truthful person who can change the country better by showing up their propaganda advertisement. As soon as they got selected or gained power, they showed in their true colors. They force their people to follow them and support them. In the meantime, they also killed millions of people who disagreed with them. Hitler was known as that he killed a person every night for no reason, in my opinion it was their way to be known as powerful leader. They were also frightful but, also clever. They deliberately got rid all those who are intelligent so that there couldn’t be any counter forces against them. People were groaned in anguish. Under Adolf Hitler, Mao Zedong, and Joseph Stalin’s forces, the country had been corrupted every seconds. In conclusion, I think that these obsessive leader shouldn’t be anymore because, they put millions of people into the black holes and scream in fears.

    Are there any similarities between leaders in control? There are many differences and similarities between different leaders, but its hard to see them without thinking dipply. The first similarity between Mao, Stalin and Hitler is they all both killed many people in their way. They even killed people who did nothing at all. Another similarity is that both Mao and Stalin learned the children that they are great leaders, but Stalin thought the children how to shoot. They all where the number one leaders until they died, that is because they killed all the others in the country. For a conclusion, people do not like leaders like Mao, Stalin and Hitler, because they are going to kill you if you even think they are bad.

    When analyzing the 3 directors, the methods of control which were similar were that the 3 directors focussed on controlling the poor who were the majority in their countries and who had little hope & were feeling despair. They used their disbelief to manipulate & control by offering them hope by carrying out their cruel & nasty acts. The directors wanted “Yes men” who followed them & would not question them. Their sadness because of their economic status meant they were desperate & needed hope so listened to the wrong things. Poor people wanted to live and knew the dictators were powerful so could not rebel and so went along with them. But Ultimately even though they tried to save their lives & families by doing what they were told, most of them paid the price with death. The dictators never wanted to be questioned so focussed on controlling the weak. Their weak minds gave power to the dictators & they used to control the countries and change history.

  14. Natty says:

    Dictators such as Hitler, Stalin and Mao are known around the world for their power to control the population in their countries. They were born in poor families that have violent fathers and religious mothers. All of them liked to use their power despite the fact that being controlled by their authoritarian fathers and rigid mothers. They believed in no one and listen to no one. They killed numbers of intellectuals and people who were different in their countries, particularly the rich and people of different ethnic group. They gained a lot of power by creating fears. They caused wars and conflicts. People do remember them for numbers of the massacres.
