  1. I really like the way in which you structured your blog post. Your use of the ACLAIM Method seems spot on. I would like to add my own input as Hitler really emphasizes the “citizen”, as they should be the only beneficiaries of the works of the state, and no other non-citizen, shunning other races and ethnicities out. Even through publications that non-citizens want to make for the publics use, it needs to be approved by people of a specific race and ethnicity and follow specific guidelines in order to be even considered. Hitlers way of spreading nationalism in his head would generate a distinct form of nationalism that would only benefit Germans, but there were many more downturns to his thought process that had worldwide affects in that time and in the coming future. By obtaining total control, he could manipulate the system in any way he saw fit. Great message.
