This article, How the Hitler Youth Turned a Generation of Kids into Nazis, shows the power these young nazis had in the fight for Hitler’s reign. They were ruthless and wanted nothing more than to help Hitler, whatever the costs may have been. And some were quite severe; according to the article, “some members of the Hitler Youth even denounced their parents when they behaved in ways not approved” by the Nazi Regime. To be so ruthless as to throw your own parents under the bus shows some deeply rooted beliefs of the Nazi Regime even their own parents couldn’t keep away from them. And this relates quite nicely with the book 1984, for Winston’s neighbor’s kids are Spies, young kids trained to fight against “the enemies of the State, against foreigners, traitors, saboteurs, thought-criminals.” These Spies “denounced [their] parents to the Thought Police” if they “overheard some compromising remark,” because just like the Hitler Youth, they were taught to destroy individuality and dissent for the means of what they believed was to be a better world. These two situations are eerily similar, for they were both controlled through propaganda, lies, and deceit. The kids in the book, for example, are more valuable to Big Brother than they originally seem, for when they grow up they’ll still have that loyalty drilled into them, and soon they will consist of the entire population. His society will consist of only those loyal to him unless someone does something quick, alike when the Nazi Regime was defeated. Both of these sources show the value in individuality; if people disagree on topics, getting rid of them won’t do any good. For big problems in society to finally be solved, people need to compromise and have many different, individual minds at work that have varying arguments and points of view, or nothing will ever change.
