 The Train - An open appeal for unity in the American Political Left : SF Indymedia   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
Once Hitler took over, as the result of a democratic election, I might add, he and the Nazi’s initiated a policy known in German as Gleichschaltung (literally, ‘synchronization’) whereby through a series of legislation, individual liberties were curtailed and eventually eliminated and totalitarian rule firmly ensconced.
As wikipedia indicates, Gleichschaltung legislation commenced after the Reichstag fire, where it was alleged communists set fire to the building.
Gleichschaltung was thus initiated supposedly as a response to a threat, but was really a red herring (pun intended) used to crush and discredit as traitors and non-patriots opposition parties and movements.

 Stephen Pagaard | Teaching the Nazi Dictatorship: Focus on Youth | The History Teacher, 38.2 | The History Cooperative
Gleichschaltung ("coordination" or "synchronization") is a word that indeed summarizes the program of the National Socialists especially in the first months of power when they set out to reform all aspects of German society according to their ideology.
In fact, their slogan was "Eternal War on the Hitler Youth." The Edelweiss Pirates were locally organized and usually met spontaneously in small groups, sometimes on street corners, sometimes in the woods, often with some females along (which was frowned upon by the authorities, who kept the branches of the Hitlerjugend strictly separated by gender).
The Nazi leadership was annoyed and perplexed by this movement that frustrated their efforts at Gleichschaltung and, although somewhat tolerant of the movement before 1940, cracked down on the ringleaders and principle swing clubs during the war.
