The Resistible Rise of Arturo Ui


The "Resistible Rise of Arturo Ui" is a didactic drama of the manner in which Hitler - the monstrous figure who shocked the entire world - rose to power in a manner that was simple, rapid and entirely preventable. He achieved what he did by exploiting capitalism, and the psychological mechanisms of a nation whose existence was in danger. Using at first minor corrupt methods to accumulate power, he refused to acknowledge responsibility for his actions. The story reads like a narrative of the post-industrial, post-democratic era of today: Arturo Ui, a typical Chicago gangster from the 1930s, gains power over all of the cauliflower vendors.
