The propaganda poster of all the armies pointing to Germany was made by Germany because they wanted to show that they were once an underdog with the least amount of troops and the least change of winning. This shows how everyone surrounding Germany hates them and how they outnumber them. In the poster, all of the surrounding countries have numerous weapons and troops and such while Germany has one single troop who seems to be smaller in scale to the other troops around Europe. The troops of the surrounding countries are bigger, have better weapons, and better machinery like airplanes and tanks and boats. While Germany had all of that but didn’t depict it in the poster because it makes Germany look more like an underdog because all they had was one troop and even though Germany was almost double of the size of some of the other countries, they almost the same amount of troops.
In the biology book for 5th grade girls the excerpt explained how the life of an ant is to work and all that stuff. It is similar to how life is in 1984 because the point of life is to work and the only way you can achieve success is if a whole group works. And those who are not helpful are eliminated. This excerpt was from after World War One, but around the time of World War Two. And this was a girls book directed towards girls not boys which is weird because only men fought in the war. I get the idea of trying to instill the work ethic in the children from grade school, but why in girls and not boys. It is possible that the boys book has the same information, but I think that the girls book would have said something different. Like facilitating and supporting the army by donating and such because girls were not allowed to fight to my knowledge.
In the what needs to be done article, it says that no movement can be stabilized without an organization of leaders. And those leaders must be engaged in the sole purpose of supporting the movement. And only select members were to be included in the movement. It also continues to state that large masses of people will benefit of they go through a dozen revolutions. This was the mindset of the German people and also the government and big brother of 1984. Simply that a community would benefit if there is a group of people to lead them. But only if select people were elected into that said group and their sole purpose is to lead the revolution. In 1984 big brother and the thought police have just about total control over Oceania except for the junk shop. But other than that, the whole oceanic community is in the palm of big brother. Germany was like that previous to the war when they were forced to become a democracy.
Biology for the Middle School For 5th Grade Girls, Germany, 1942 (excerpt)
Talks about bees and ants colonies; Says how they are better because they have a much better system of living, because they don't have any individual will, but rather think as a whole. They say how ants have a perfect system of living that makes them a efficient as a well functioning machine. The article suggests how people should be more like ants and bees
Talks about devices that aren't carried around but implanted into you; Seems like the "feed" is some device that everyone has (like apple); Says how the "feed" is just a trick and it seems all great but people are being watched by the feed companies; Kind of like people giving up a bit of their individuality to become a bit more superior, like how they were talking about in the other document about giving up
individuality to become more superior like the bees and ants
Propaganda poster: boy missing in picture; In one picture there is the kid in the next he's missing; Can't really tell who made it or why; Maybe it was made to say that if people in a country's government don't like you they can make you "disappear" just like the kid in the picture; Maybe the guy next to him in the picture is the cause of his disappearance; (Stalin's the guy I think right?)
The things that motivate people the most are sex and survival. In the photo “HALT the HUN!” The colors are red, yellow, and black. I think there that colors to get people fired up about stopping Germany. I think they use a women and child because they want to install fear into people’s eyes. This poster is effective because they are targeting one of things that drives as humans. The poster is trying to get people to buy bonds and help the cause. I think it’s trying to show that America needs to survive and you can help them by donating.
In the photo “Mutter and Kind” I think the point of the photo is to show what Germany is fighting for. I think it targets the part of the brain that is about sex and reproduction. The poster looks happy because it shows Germany not so bad. The saying means fund the mother. I think that means help start a better race with reproduction. This connects to 1984 because the ideal person is a blonde hair blue eyes person just like in Germany.
In the photo “AEHH-XXH” I think the point is to show Lenin like the man. I think this because he is standing alone by himself with the Soviet Union flag in the background. The colors are very bold with red and black. They make you feel excited to get pumped up. He is like facing the wind like he is a hero. When you see heroes you often see them look glorified. Lenin looks very heroic which makes me think this poster was used to get people in the Soviet Union excited about there new leader. I also notice the year in background which sort of makes me think that they are trying to get people to remember the year because it will be important.
In the excerpt of “Biology for 5th” I noticed that they don’t talk about the anatomy of the bee but the way the society of how it works. I think this reading is trying to manipulate the young kids into thinking that having thoughts is bad. It’s much like 1984 because the reading talks about bees just do there job and not care about themselves but only for the whole country. In 1984 people are just suppose to there job and do it everyday no questions ask. At one point they talk about how bees go and fight for the beehive without and hesitation. That is used like propaganda to get people to fight.
In the “Hymn to Stalin” I think the point is to be used as propaganda. I notice the hymn uses words such as the man who brought us to birth which sort of gives me the impression that Soviet Union was in love with Stalin. I think that the purpose of this was to praise and hype of Stalin which feeds into his ego. This is like 1984, because everyone loves Big Brother even though he is still a bad guy. No one even notices how bad he is just what he did in the past.

When I first look at the poster I see anger and excitement. I think of anger because of the colors. Colors of fire and destruction makes me angry. But excitement makes me want to hurt someone in the war. I see Americans fighting against the Germans. If I were back in time I would want to join the army if I saw this. Also I see sex and survival. The two main points in the human mind. I see a lady with a newborn child. That would make men and women excited. Also we must have solders for survival. To survive against the enemy we have to defend and attack the opponent.
When I first look at the second picture. I think this is the answer the Germans want. I say that because the writing looks German also the Field looks like Germany. There is a lady Brest feeding.nit is very peaceful and nice.
The first document I have chosen is the picture of a dictator having amen around his face. When I see this picture it makes me angry and like I have to worship this man. So when I see this poster I am guessing this poster is German. First of all I think this man is hitler cause he was a dictator and he has a mustache. Also it’s not American because we don’t worship one man. We look up to our government and congress. Lastly it makes me mad because of the color. The color is dark red and black. That to me makes me feel like the dictator is evil.
The second document I chose was Vladimir Illyich Lenin: What is to be Done, 1902 (excerpt). The document reminded me of revolution. When I was reading it I felt like it was Germany’s restart plan. The talked about having new jobs. New society. And making a brand new evolution. example, trade unions, workers’ circles for self-education and the reading of illegal literature, and socialist and also democratic circles for all other sections of the population.
The next article I chose was the biology of middle school for girls in 5th grade. In this article the Germans are making rules for kids. This will make the rules follow German rules throughout their life. Germany is smart because the taught these kids everyday at a very young age. Eventually they will grow in to the rules. Later they will follow the rules as adults and have their children follow the rules. This is another propaganda the German government used for their society.
The things that people care about the most is Sex and Survival. In this photo of "Halt the Hunt" it makes you angry at the germans and want to buy U.S bonds. The color just makes you angry and angry at the enemies that you are fighting. Just trying to get everyone fired up. The u.s was very good at making people want to spend there money. It was affective because everyone is mad at the enemies and there willing to give there money to help win the war or at least feel like they are.
This photo "Mutter uno kind" I think it is trying to show that Germany has families and everyone isn't bad. This photo probably right out of hitlers office. She is breast-feeding with her babe and you can see a city in the background and its probably trying to show that there about family and having a community. It could be showing everyone that these are the people who are perfect in Germany and they might be showing the soldiers this is what you have to fight for. Reproduction is being showed, the colors are calm and happy and Its trying to show light and life. This is telling Germany to support there children and wives and everything that they care about.
In this photo "Lenin" is trying to make himself look very tough and like he is the biggest leader. The red background I think is trying to show that he is very crazy and he could easily kill you to get what he wants. This photo actually kind of makes you scared of him, everything is in such deep color and things. You can see the reflection of fire on part of his body. He's standing by himself and I think thats what he wanted people to think and see that he was such a good leader he did not need anyone else. The writing in this almost looks like a song or something that the russian army created to be different from other armies and groups.
This photo of hitler saying "wonder how long the honeymoon will last" is saying like how long will the rain of hitler last? This photo was rather made by the U.S or by England. Or it could have been a team thing because they both speak english so they easily could of done this together to try and make fun of hitler. The whole point is to make hitler angry and maybe make his anger make him do something wrong. Because this photo was made so that hitler would end up seeing it.
In this" biology of middle school for girls in 5th grade" is really just trying to tell young people who live in Germany to follow these rules. If Germany could get around to kids by doing this, then the kids would take what they had been learning and then Germany would also get around to adults by making other propaganda. This was a very smart thing to be done because it still goes on today and these are the rules that everyone wants and needs to follow.
Vladimir Illyich Lenin in this document its showing that you don't always have to trained to do something. Some people that are trained to do stuff are not always great. You could have ten professional people and they could be trash. I think this article is helpful to see something that was written before WW1 and it still sounded like something that could be said after the war had already been over.
Halt the Hunt
• Angry colors of emotions
• Colors represent threading and killing

The feed reading
• The feed is like totalitarianism because it controls every aspect of the person
• It persuaded a lot of people because they said it would be a huge advantage in education
• They are obsessed with the feed and can't really function without it
• It is personalized to your personality and lifestyle
• The feed corporation controls everything which nobody likes but they were the one who gave them the feed
Hannah Arendt Origins of Totalitarianism
• It shows the history of totalitarianism
• Talks about the purpose of why people like Hitler want totalitarianism

• Hitler and Stalin have the same goal/ purpose
• But they have different philosophy- different beliefs
• Different types of power in totalitarianism
• Everybody is committed to the leader/ party/ state
• State is the party

This propaganda poster I think is made by Germany. I think it's made by Germany because they wanted to show they were once an underdog. This poster shows everyone around Germany hates them. They are surrounded by a numerous number of countries and all these countries are pointing there powerful weapons at Germany. By powerful weapons I mean tanks, submarines, generals, just all the strong weapons and strong soldiers in a war. And all their weapons are enhanced by being big, while on the other hand Germany has a small soldier. This small soldier is about to take on all these countries with all there powerful weapons. The are many different colors and I think it's purpose is to show that the colored countries are ally's and the white is Germany and this other country. So I think the purpose of this poster is to show that no likes Germany, Germany is weak, and they are going to take Germany on.
This article is titled "Biology for the middle school 5th grade girls, Germany". The person is the Germany government. This is a government document stated to the young children. This is useful for us because it shows why the people of Germany might have followed the government orders. The government wants the community to follow their rules such as bees and ants do. They tell the community how bees and ants work which is by being loyal and sacrificing themselves to their leaders. This relates to 1984 because the leader is big brother and he wants his party to be loyal to them and most of them are. They say if you follow them and be loyal you will have a good life. And that is how the German government wants it. The purpose of this article is supposed to persuade your thoughts on following the government. I don't question this article because its just stating on how they wanted people to follow them. The community and insects views are being represented.
This article is title is "A.O. Avidenko: hymn to Stalin". The person is Hymn. This is from a book by this author. This is useful for us because it gives us hymn perspective view on Stalin. He's saying you should follow Stalin because you will be happy, filled with joy, and all these good things will happen to you. His name will carry own from generation to generation and his name is all over the place from buildings, to machines, to all over the world. This connects to 1984 also because Stalin is similar to big brother. His party said if you followed big brother you will be happy and all these good things will come to you also. Big brother and Stalin were both being viewed as gods from the people in their community. The purpose of this article is to persuade you to follow Stalin because he is a great leader. I don't really question this article because Stalin had a bunch of people under him. Hymn view is being represented.
