In democracy, the leader of the country cannot bear complete control over the country and is very easy to loose their position because the public has power over the government, and Hitler believed that Germany could only become stronger under his dictatorship. So it is obvious why Hitl... ...e similar things to Hitler, he also tried to decrease the unemployment rate and the most magnificent achievement was that under his order the railroads were completed.
