Hitler did not force his will on the German people. On the contrary, after a long struggle of 13 years, he was freely elected to defend the German people against the deliberate destroyers of their country. He announced very clearly on one pamphlet what his plans were and who he intended to defend the Germans against, by implementing 25 specific points, and ONLY those 25 points, back in 1920:1936 German (Berlin) Olympics

Germany hosted the 1936 Summer Olympics at Berlin. These games were televised by two German firms, Telefunken and Fernseh, using RCA and Farnsworth equipment, respectively. This marked the first live television coverage of a sports event in world history. Both systems broadcast at 180 lines and 25 frames per second. Four different areas were telecast using three cameras. In total, 72 hours of live transmission went over the airwaves to special viewing booths, called "Public Television Offices" in Berlin and Potsdam.
There was never an artificially created discontent of the masses by the NSDAP. The masses were fully content, more content than at any other time in German history and the Austrians were also so desirous of the contentedness of the Germans that they voted by 99% majority for re-unification with Germany. There was the worldwide boycott of 'Judea Declares War on Germany 1933' which they managed to overcome and then there was the war forced on them which again they never wanted.http://www.hitler.org/writings/programme/
The Programme of the German Workers' Party is designed to be of limited duration. The leaders have no intention, once the aims announced in it have been achieved, of establishing fresh ones, merely in order to increase, artificially, the discontent of the masses and so ensure the continued existence of the Party.
Of course the main overriding tenet of the program of the NSDAP and the root of the matter in its self-defence operation was:
THE COMMON INTEREST BEFORE SELF-INTEREST -
THAT IS THE SPIRIT OF THE PROGRAM.
BREAKING OF THE THRALDOM OF INTEREST - THAT IS THE KERNEL OF NATIONAL SOCIALISM.
This is exactly the same thing we are fighting against today: THE THRALDOM OF INTEREST or USURY, which has been very conveniently forgotten by those who control the world's mainstream media and shills like Alex Jones, who declare 'the thralldom of interest' wrong and then lie about the fact that Hitler, Mussolini and Franco were fighting it. The State Bank of Japan in WWII was also fighting the thraldom of interest as was the State Bank of Russia prior to the Bolshevik takeover.
Aside from those 25 points, however, the NSDAP was not anti-capitalist or anti-private-property, just anti predatory-mercantile-capitalist, anti-usury, anti-fraud. Also, if your business worked against the moral health of the nation, they'd shut it down. However, even this was very progressively defined. For example, they shut down outright pornographers but promoted nude sunbathing, nudist gymnastics, allowed tastefully done nude books and even later a topless nude parade, freedoms not allowed in the so-called 'land of the free,' USA. They banned Jazz as Jewish-Negro degenerate music but due to the tremendous popularity of American jazz among Germans, later had to give-in and start their own German jazz bands to keep the 'degeneracy' under control.
So, Adolf got in with 44% of the free vote in an 11 party race (the communist party only received 18%) in 1933 and a whopping 98% of the free and independently monitored vote (Goebbels especially invited foreign journalists for exactly this purpose of monitoring the integrity of their free elections) in 1936 after full employment and zero inflation was achieved.
On April 13, 1928, Adolf Hitler clarified section seventeen in the programme in order to stop political mischaracterizations: "Because of the mendacious interpretations on the part of our opponents of Point 17 of the programme of the NSDAP, the following explanation is necessary:
Since the NSDAP is fundamentally based on the principle of PRIVATE PROPERTY,
it is obvious that the expression "confiscation without compensation" refers merely to the creation of possible legal means of confiscating when necessary, land illegally acquired, or not administered in accordance with the national welfare.
It is therefore directed in the first instance against the Jewish companies which speculate in land."
True to his word, on March 29th, 1936, the German nation was given as promised the opportunity to express their approval or disapproval of the National Socialist state. It was an entirely free election without fear or intimidation with adequate provision made for monitoring by neutral observers.

Also as far as German propaganda is concerned, here's what propaganda expert and one of Huxley's own favorite scholars / sociologists Jacques Ellul had to say about Goebbels:
The postwar image of Goebbels as a master dissembler is itself a propaganda distortion, explains French scholar Jacques Ellul in his classic study, Propaganda. He writes:
“There remains the problem of Goebbels’ reputation. He wore the title of Big Liar (bestowed by Anglo-Saxon propaganda) and yet he never stopped battling for propaganda to be as accurate as possible. He preferred being cynical and brutal to being caught in a lie. He used to say: `Everybody must know what the situation is.’ He was always the first to announce disastrous events or difficult situations, without hiding anything. The result was a general belief between 1939 and 1942 that German communiqués not only were more concise, clearer and less cluttered, but were more truthful than Allied communiqués … and, furthermore, that the Germans published all the news two or three days before the Allies. All this is so true that pinning the title of Big Liar on Goebbels must be considered quite a propaganda success.”
Of course, Huxley had mainly promoted Ellul's previous book "Technological Society" and by the time "Propaganda: The Formation of Men's Attitudes" was published in 1965, he had already been dead for 2 years.
His active engagement in the events of the century nourished a considerable amount of writing: almost a thousand articles and fifty or so books translated into more than twelve languages. The Technological Society, the first volume of his trilogy on the subject, appeared in France in 1954. This book was discovered and promoted by Aldous Huxley, the English author of Brave New World, and brought him fame in American universities ten years later - a fact borne out by the hundreds of Californian students who came to study at the Institute of Political Studies until his retirement in 1980. Ellul was a demanding professor but open to discussion, knowing how to capture the attention of his audience without resorting to dramatic effects or giving in to fashion. He regularly taught classes on the technological society, propaganda, Marx's thinking or that of his various disciples (be they German, Italian, Russian, Chinese or Czech)
“Naturally, the educated man does not believe in propaganda, he shrugs and is convinced that propaganda has no effect on him. This is, in fact, one of his great weaknesses, and propagandists are well aware that in order to reach someone, one must first convince him that propaganda is ineffectual and not very clever. Because he is convinced of his own superiority, the intellectual is much more vulnerable than anybody else to this maneuver.” ~ Jacques Ellul - “Propaganda, The Formation of Men's Attitudes"
