An ideology refers to a set of ideas that are either conscious or unconscious, and incorporates an individual’s goals, actions and expectations. Ideologies incorporate ideas that apply to the general society and thus making the concept to be the central point of politics. In the modern society, humanity has been eroded due to continuous fights between nations, societies, tribes among others. However, this erosion of humanity virtue in the current society provides a golden opportunity of individuals of good faith to develop ideologies that would help to prevent the violation of human rights, economic stability, and democracy in government among others (David, Andrew & Richard, 2014). This paper focuses on the ideology of Nazism that could be applied in the modern society in order to enhance the understanding a number of ideals.
Nazism as applied in Germany by Adolf Hitler has a number of ideas that can lead to the understanding of many aspects in the modern society. For example, Nazism in Germany had the ideology of nationalism that was greatly concerned with German interest. Like in the German state, Nazism can help to rebuild the military and to provide to the residents of the current societies, restoring our economy and also help in achieving economic self-sufficiency. The Nazism in Germany faced little support from the international states but if only these countries could have known the ideas that Nazism ideology had, these countries could have understood the importance of Nazism (Office of the Spokesperson, 2014).
In addition, the Nazism ideology can help to incorporate the idea of totalitarianism in our modern society. The state has the ultimate role of ordination, shaping and regulating the society for the betterment of the nation failure to which the societies would collapse and lead to devastating consequences. Nazism believes that the government has a mandate to control the unions and press, manage education and restrict freedoms and civil liberties. However, most anti-Nazism argues that, Nazism can propagate the emergence of war and thus it is a rag-brag of incoherent and inconsistent views (Office of the Spokesperson, 2014).
Moreover, Nazism has the idea of militarism where the proposers argues that, it is the role of the state to ensure its societies have the proper defense mechanisms for the betterment of its societies. In Germany, the Nazis believed that the proper arming of the military would help to expand its territories by conquering the neighboring states and also preventing any other state from attacking them. However, in the modern society, the idea of maintaining a strong military can help to keep the state and its societies well equipped and armed to face terrorists that are attacking countries day In day out (Henley & Jon 2005). The societies that have a weak military has high vulnerable to invasion by terrorist since the latter is opportunistic and highly trained than the expectations of most governments military systems.
Additionally, the Nazism had the central objective of reviving the Germany economy that had collapsed as a result of the war. In the most societies, the economic status has deteriorated due to corruption, poor governance, and climatic changes among other factors. In is, therefore, of great importance in incorporating the Nazism idea of restoring the economic situation of the societies through mobilizing the government either to curb the factors that are contributing to the deterioration of the economy or through forcibly hanging the leadership system. In Germany, the Nazism ideology mobilized the individuals to work hard and this helped in the recovery of the German economy. In addition, Nazi in Germany, enhanced the creation of jobs to most unemployed individuals, dictating what is needed to be produced, managing labour and allocating resources. This creation of job opportunities made Germany be economically active and eradicated poverty to most unemployed individuals. Consecutively, adopting this Nazism ideology in the modern society can help to eradicate poverty, improve the growth of the economy and reduction of crimes such as robbery, theft and murder cases (Ondřej & Klára 2002).
Nazism can also involve the aspect of comprehensive back-up from the entire public so as to succeed in addressing its associated ideas. Therefore, the Nazism ideology helps to unify the individuals in the society thus promoting unity in the long run (David, Andrew & Richard, 2014). For example, Nazism in Germany gained popularity and made many Germans support and this unity made them realize some of the major objectives of Nazi movement. In addition, promoting Nazism in the modern helps develop a new society that have no affect the traditional values such as religious beliefs and ancestral beliefs on land. For example, in Germany, Nazism neither promoted nor exploited the traditional values and thus maintained the traditional cultures.
It is, therefore, evident that, promoting Nazism as an ideology can lead to the creation of a new society that is free from eroding the humanity virtue that have a great significance for the peaceful coexistence in the modern society. Nazism would help to revive the economic status of the country through creating jobs to most unemployed individuals, re-arm the military system of the country that would keep the latter always equipped to attack terrorists among other great achievements. In addition, Nazism ideology would help to enhance unity among the society members and this is a great improvement in eradicating wars, crimes and others vices in the modern society.
