Assim, os mais diferentes tipos de postulados antissemitas adquirem uma tonalidade condizente com o conflito em pauta. O mito das sociedades secretas, como regentes do mundo, tem algo de bizarro. Com as sociedades secretas, ocorre a mesma coisa. Apesar de idas e vindas, Dreyfus nunca mais foi declarado juridicamente inocente, apenas anistiado. Hoje em dia se fala em populismo, em eleitoralismo, em demagogia.

It takes the form of three bits of advise, as I truly believe Some Tips For The Reader To Be Having just finished this monster of a book in just under three months not sure if any book has taken me so long to finish, perhaps Infinite Jest might surpass? It goes as follows: 1. Unless you have experience in understanding the language of Political Science or any complex subject , or you are very well read with in-depth politics, or you just so happen to be able to process complex ideas and writings from paper to brain in perfect unity, then you may find that the first pages of this book will hit you like a clean round-house kick to the head.
What Arendt is setting out to inform the reader of. It was only after having a minor freak out finishing part II of this book Imperialism in a computer room late at night that I fully grasped what Arendt was attempting to convey to readers when forming this book. Instead, The Origins of Totalitarianism reads like a slow motion dread-fest that builds in momentum as the reader learns about the collective thoughts of the population at the time.
Arendt goes from informing us about the various peoples of pre-WWII Europe and the hatred pumped into their consciousness which found a voice in anti-Semitism; Racism; the eventual Pan-Movements, and finally exposing how Imperialism nurtured it all. All as the pre-requisites for what gave birth to the Nightmare Ideologies of Hitler and Stalin.
So what makes it different in its explanation of these events? Simply put, Arendt attempts to show the reader the mindset of western society at the time. Not of an individual, but of the subconscious, unquestioning attitude toward the world the elite and in-power peoples of Europe such as Britain and Germany held, and how they ended up seeing reality in this warped, divorced way.
This is what makes for a difficult read. Arendt attempted to create a book that weaves human thought together when we are assembled together en-masse no easy feat , and display the inner workings of those who inhabited an Imperialistic world full of expansion and domination.
But what follows is the bone chilling chronicling of how men became convinced they were servants to the never-changing, always forward moving cogs of history as viewed through the eyes of imperialists. How the reader should tackle the book. Attack this book pro-actively. Most importantly, be humble when reading this book and realise this is one of those texts that requires time and thought to read. It is the least we can do to mentally arm ourselves against this carcass of a thought-trail, and arm those around us also.
I feel I can sum this subject up in one final paragraph. Humans, being the organically grown creatures of mother earth that we are, are not separate from the laws of nature that all other creatures must obey. The exact same can be said of societies for what are societies if not humans expressing their desires and aims into a physical collective I believe.
Totalitarianism is a modern societal disease. A society that has failed to nourish itself with all the needs and basic requirements for humans to flourish will decay.
