In 1930
When Hitler got released from prison on December 20, 1924, I was optimistic that things
would change. The major event that made most of us change perceptions on the potency of this
party is the fact that Hitler managed to convince the Bavarians to lift the NSDAP ban. It was also
apparent on the intentions of the party since the new leader, Hitler, disavowed plans of grasping
power through force. I have been confident in the leadership of Hitler from as early as 1925
when he assured political and economic stability of the nation. However, the most essential
factor that accelerated my trust on the party is the fading of extremist upsurges thereby,
promising the reduction and ultimate seize of upsurges of revolutions or adventures of such kinds
(Chris, 2011). Currently, the leadership structure of the party shows how potent and visionary it
is. After Hitler, there is the nominal Deputy Party Leader called Rudolf Hess. However, it is
surprising that he has no particular role designated for him in the party. However, other senior
leaders in the party include Joseph Goebbels, Heinrich Himmler, and Hermann Göring (Richard,
2018). Under the so-called “Leadership Corps” are regional leaders known as the “Gauleiters.”
Every Gauleiter commands the party in his region, also known as the “Gau.” As I have
described, it is noticeable, how strictly hierarchical the party’s structure is. Orders come from
Hitler himself and the subjects portray uttermost loyalty. Currently, the “Hitler salute” - "Heil
Hitler!" can be resonated whenever political endeavors become a subject for discussion (Allen,
1965, pg. 50).
I might be quiet uncertain about the intentions of many opponents towards the
achievements of the Nazi party. However, I am sure that the ascent of the party to power shows
how hopeful individuals are towards the leadership of the great Hitler. I am convinced that the
administration of Hitler will whip out the streaming depression in the communities and boost the
economy by employing most jobless men (Marc, 2016, pg. 226). Businesses will also find means
of rising again under such able leadership. Otherwise, I give credit to Hitler who, for so long, has
proved to be an active campaigner, a champion for peace and prosperity, as well as a pioneer for
cooperation in stressing moments. Those who work with or under him are loyalist who only
advocates for the betterment of the country and the strength of the party under the able leadership
of Hitler (Chris, 2011).
In 1935
In 5 years, I have witnessed two different life-changing elections in the history of
Germany. Those who oppose truth create political coalitions and parties in an attempt to
disorient the development agendas of the Nazi party. Hopefully, such parties have been dissolved
or outlawed. I believe that by introducing the law of securing party unity, in 1933, a continuous
intertwining of the structures and components of the ruling party was developed as well. I am
also aware of the fact that the "Night of the Long Knives" happened in 1934 in which Hitler was
engaged disempowering SA's leadership.
Most importantly, it is worth noting that the leadership belonged to the "Strasserist”
faction of the NSDAP (Martina & Bernhard, 2018, pg. 91). Even if Hitler ordered for their
slaughter, it would arguably be proved that they were involved in staging an attack on the
government, or rather, a coup d'état. However, those that oppose such courageous actions of
Hitler on the grounds of justification pretense with the aim of suppressing intraparty opposition
may be ill-natured. The death of Kurt von Schleicher, an anti-Nazi conservative, should not be
