What are the peculiar features of Nazi thinking?
Nazi propaganda skillfully projected Hitler as a messiah, a saviour, as someone who had arrived to deliver people from their distress. Having acquired Chancellorship in 1933, Hitler set out to dismantle the structures of democratic rule. The Fire Decree of 28 February 1933 indefinitely suspended civic rights like freedom of speech, press and assembly that had been guaranteed by the Weimar constitution. Then he turned on his arch enemies, the communists most of whom were hurriedly packed off to the newly established concentration camps. The repression of communists was severe.
On 3rd March 1933, the famous Enabling Act was passed. This Act established the dictatorship in Germany. It gave Hitler all the powers to sideline Parliament and rule by decree. All political parties and trade unions were banned except for the Nazi Party and its affiliates. Special surveillance and security forces were created to control and order society in the ways that the Nazis wanted.
