Differences and Similarities Between Adolf Hitler, Benito Mussolini, and Josef Stalin

they shared 2 things they were greedy, and murderers! Hitler, Mussolini, and Stalin were all dictators with very different principles. Hitler's principle was the cultural and biological superiority of the Aryan peoples. Mussolini's was a more of a nationalism based on remembering Rome's glory. Along with Stalin's principle, which was a fundamental principle, Marxism-Leninism. They all started with very different first principles, but they all actually wound up running very similar totalitarian states.

Here are more opinions and answers from other FAQ Farmers:

  • The USSR citizens fought with amazing courage against the Nazis, and saved Europe from Hitler. The Germans themselves were amazed at the bravery and tenacity of the Red Army, the Partizans and the ordinary citizens - including women and children. The Western allies contribution was pathetic in comparison, so the Germans stripped the Western Front of the best troops to fight the real war in the East.
  • The above answers are all very strange they all seem to think that the biggest difference is what the Dictators believed in. However this was all part of the Cult of personality that they created in order to gain power. One may argue they used they Cult of personalities of which the Arian race or former glory was a part of in order to gain and maintain power. The biggest difference would surly have to be the extremism they managed to achieve, the extent of there totalitarian dictatorship. Of which Stalin was surly the greatest and Mussolini the weakest this is again backed by the amount of people they purged and the varying degrees of control.
  • The answers above are rather discouraging. Peasants, that had to be led at gunpoint? Where have you been? These "peasants" were THE reason the Wehrmacht was destroyed and Europe was freed from
  • extermination.
  • Hitler himself was a genius if it wasn't for the Japs bombing Pearl Harbor America would have played very little role in this war. The Americans helped Britain and France in the war, without them they would have fallen prey to Germans might.
  • Stalin was mostly concerned about improving Russia through Communism whereas Hitler and Mussolini were expansionist. Both Hitler and Mussolini wanted to gain territory and restore prestige to their countries. However Hitler was way more radical and influential than Mussolini and in the end Hitler is remember as a brutal tyrant while many people know very little about Mussolini because he never really did anything of significance as far as I know.
  • Mussolini was the first person to really come up with a plan to dominate. Hitler and Stalin saw his geneous and copied him in different ways.
  • Hitler was interested in the decimation of the Jewish people, Stalin was determined to defeat Hitler after he attacked them.
  • Mussolini and Hitler were both Fascists while Stalin was a communist.
  • The first bullet point said that Stalin saved Europe is a lie. He couldn't of cared less for the people of Europe. All he wanted was territory. The allies liberated Europe Stalin took as much of Europe as possible.

Politically there was a great difference between the three leaders. Hitler was a true Nationalist who firmly believed in the concept of Pan-Germanism. He had no real "political" program and National Socialism was never more than a handy vehicle for Hitler to rise to power - one of the reasons it's never really revived (in any form) as a political force is because it never existed to begin with. Mussolini's Fascism, while better organized and more genuinely socialist were also largely a nebulous concept. Stalin's Communism was quite real and an actual political philosophy - although it's debatable as to whether Stalin was a committed Communist or whether he just used the party in the same way that Hitler used the NSDAP - namely as a vehicle for his personal advancement.

Neither Hitler nor Stalin hated one another. In actuality they admired one another on a personal level - Stalin praised Hitler's ruthless commitment to purge Germany of opposition and Hitler regarded Stalin as the only leader who was truly equal to him - in a very weird way these two remained connected right to the bitter end.

Other minor points:

Hitler was not a sickly child. He was a robust child who often feigned sickness for his mother's attention (a lot like Teddy Roosevelt actually).

Stalin's father did abandon his family. Hitler's father didn't abandon his family - Hitler (and probably the World) would likely have been better off if he had abandoned them.

I've read just about every history book there is on 20th century European history. I don't recall ever reading that Hitler's mother wanted him to be a priest. Similarly, although Hitler's grammar school was in a church, Hitler was not ever, in any way, enrolled in a Seminary or anything like it. Hitler greatly admired the Catholic Church's administrative structure and adopted much of it for the Nazi Party but that's about it (and it was a good call since the Church itself took its structure from the old Imperial Roman system - which was pretty damned good).

Hitler was an excellent artist with a penchant for architectural studies. Stalin was not an artist of any particulat ability - he was more noted as being a poet of some promise when he was younger.

Hitler did graduate from High School but got drunk after his graduation and used his certificate/diploma as,,,um, well, toilet paper (no this is the truth!) and when he was subsequently unable to produce the certificate he was ineligible for admission to higher schools in Vienna.

Hitler spent a cushy time in Landesburg Prison following the failed Beer Hall Putsch (imagine, he could've come to power ten full years' earlier than he did. What a mess that would've been). Stalin's imprisonment(s) were largely for general thuggery - bombings and armed robberies. Hitler was much more like Lenin than he was Stalin when it comes to his political career since both of these were the fountainheads of their political movements. Stalin was much more of a political intriguer who picked his enemies off from within.

Similarities Between

What is the relationship between power and justice?

The relationship between Power and Justice is similar to the relationship between Money and Happiness, in that it is not a direct relationship, but a complimentary one. Sufficient Power possessed by a group inclined to enforce justice fairly makes for a more just system. Power possessed by a group inclined to enforce justice in a discriminate, haphazard, or other unjust manner will make a system less just. Similarly, a group with Power may choose to deliberately counter society's efforts at achieving and maintaining Justice, which may also make that system less just.

Power is an actuality, whereas Justice is an idea/concept/goal that can be actualized only through the deliberate actions of persons who choose to act toward that actualization.

A system can function without justice. No system can function without power.
