The Hijacking of Democracy Hitler Seduces a Republic

The Chairmen and women of Liberty Christian Academy School Board need to educate their students on how Hitler seduced and conquered German Democracy, so as to prompt students to think critically and see Hitler's strategies being implemented in modern politics.

Students need to be educated on how Hitler captivated the German people including the German youth. These posters portray pro-Nazi German young people in a glorious way, thus encouraging Children to join the Hitler Youth and other Nazi youth organizations.

Hitler promised the Germans many things, many of which he could not deliver on, nevertheless they still supported him and traded their democracy for a dictatorship. Students need to be taught to discern political promise from a certain reality.

Students need to be taught to not get entangled in the facade that many politicians portray themselves to be. Hitler portrayed himself to be a savior to the German people; hence he was able to manipulate their dreams, declaring himself to be the only one to deliver them.
