How, according to O’Brien, does the The Party as an oligarchy differ from Nazism or Russian Communism? How does he define the role of the martyr, both in terms of The Party and the other totalitarian systems?

The Party is different from Nazism and Russian Communism because they don’t allow there to be saints no one is safe. In the other two societies, when you killed someone that person was seen as a martyrs. But the party first turns everyone into criminals to love the party by threatening them stawith their greatest fears.  Basically, they can’t be killed as martyrs because they have switched sides, from fighting the Party to supporting it.  Nazism and Russian Communism would kill this people in front of others so that they would lose their dignity but the Party is destroying all evidence that may lead to what really was going on by controlling the media. O’Brien explain to us the success the party had in not being martyr and their people is 100% loyal to them but when their minds change they kill them.
