From 1933 to 1939 Hitler aimed to achieve a social revolution in Germany Through his concept of volksgemeinschaft meaning peoples community he hoped to transform Germany into a strong country based on traditional peasant values Historians have debated how far Hitler actually achieved a social revolution Some such as Schoenbaum have argued that Hitlers social revolution was a fake perceived as being real due to the influence of Hitlers propaganda Hitler wanted Germany to be a classless society He believed that if he made everyone equal it would be easier to control them He wanted them to unite and follow his orders He believed that the peasants were the blood and soil of Germany and presented them as the back bone of the community The peasant family and old aged were idealised in public They were used in various propaganda campaigns Hitler believed that they were decent and hard working He tried to take Germany back to its rural roots by enforcing labour intensive work and cutting back on machinery However he needed machinery for rearmament His policies as shown later on were never going to work as one contradicted the other Propaganda showing men ploughing fields using horsepower was a mere dream for Hitler something he would never achieve if he wanted to rearm He relied on big businesses - something that also contradicted the peasant values Hitler needed support from the working class to achieve his aims Trade Unions were a threat to Hitlers power He closed down big businesses and open smaller ones His aim was to win over the workers through State benefit and material improvement All the people needed to make them happy was food and entertainment - or bread and circuses as Hitler put it Hitler had many policies towards the working class On the day after May Day holiday in 1933 Trade Unions were ransacked In the end 169 Trade Unions were under Nazi control
