Nazism

First as tragedy
Then as farce

In this essay we will examine how Nazism is a self destructive ideology when put into practice. We will do so using the Third Reich, more commonly known as Nazi Germany as the primary basis for the claims put forth. The reason for such is that Nazi Germany is one of the few historical examples of an outright Nazi regime rather than merely a Fascist or Pseudo-Fascist state. As such our fictional example of a Nazi state shall be referred to as the Aryan Republic, or AR for short.

First, the AR shall be broken down into three major categories:

  1. Economic: How is the money managed and what is it spent on?
  2. Political: How do the leaders behave and what policies, legislation, etc do they write into law?
  3. Social: How do the citizens behave?

Second, we shall pit various events against the AR and examine their effects on each category.
