HITLER, MUSSOLINI, STALIN

Hitler, Mussolini, Stalin…..

These three names have a vast impact on the idea of dictatorship. These men established
dictatorship and guided this type of rule throughout most of their lives. Dictatorship is
a form of government in which absolute power is exercised and practiced by one person
without hereditary right or the free consent of the citizens living in the country. It
takes a person with a lot of courage and grit to become a dictator. These three
proletariats possessed that exact power to become a dictator. Their childhoods had a
massive impression on what they turned out to be.

Adolf Hitler was born in the April of 1889. In 1895, at the age of six, two important
incidents occurred in the life of the young Hitler. One was that the unrestrained,
lighthearted days he enjoyed up to now had come to an end. Hitler had entered a primary
school. The second occurrence was that his father retired on a annual support from the
Austrian civil service. This meant that young Adolf had been under the watchful eyes of
both his teacher at school and his father at home. His father, Alois, was used to giving
orders and having them obeyed from his kids because of his occupation in the civil
service. Therefore, he was very strict. Alois Hitler never had a pleasant relationship
with any of his children.

Hitler was said to have a really good singing voice and took part in his school's choir.
He also was a very smart boy, doing well in school.

Hitler was very religious, idolizing his priests. At age nine, he was caught smoking a
cigarette by one of his priests but was forgiven and had no punishment.

Hitler was obsessed with German Nationalism when he was in school.
Hitler once said of himself that he was an argumentative ring leader who liked to stay
outside and hang around tough boys. Although his toughness, he had a hobby of drawing. He
was a expertise at artistry. Hitler had the ability to look at a building, memorizing the
details, and accurately sketching it on paper, all by memory. After his grade school was
over, Hitler wanted to go to a classical school to become an artist. His father, however,
objected, and the two had many, many arguments about Adolf's future. Hitler's dream was to
graduate from an art school in Vienna and become a professional artist. Sadly, this was
not the case. He failed to get accepted by this school and his ideas went south from that
point.

The second dictator I introduced is Benito Mussolini. Benito Mussolini was born on July
29, 1883. His mother, Rosa, was a popular and respected schoolteacher and his father,
Allesandro, was a committed socialist. Mussolini had a brother and a sister, neither of
whom he ever got along with. Mussolini also had a hard time with his father, who beat him
numerous times. During his early childhood, he quickly became a bully, pinching people at
his church and throwing rocks at others. In 1892, his parents sent him to a boarding

    1984 George Orwell was not only a writer, but also an important political reformer. Orwell was born in India in 1903. He considered his family a "lower-middle class" family. He said this because his family was a part of the middle class, but had little money. His father worked for the British government and was able to be apart of the middle class without money. Orwell lived in Britain and went to boarding school there on scholarships. He was the poorest student among many wealthy children. Orwe

However, the idea that species mutate over time has been around for a long time in one form or another. Therefore, by Darwin\'s time the idea that species change from one type into another was by no means new, but was rejected by most because the proponents of evolution could not come up with a satisfactory mechanism that would
