"The most common argument that I hear against socialist systems is that they are inefficient."

no the most common arguments are that they result in more suffering for communities as a whole because standards of living fall, individuals lose opportunities to advance themselves and in extreme cases like in nazi germany it results in genocide 

Ah yes, Nazi Germany. Well known for it's capitalist socialist policies like widespread privatization of sectors like mining, banking, railways, public utilities, transportation, banning collective bargaining and banning all independent trade unions. Also some very friendly socialist political measures like imprisoning, executing socialists, communists and aligning with the Germany right. Anyways, Ronald Reagan is my favourite socialist.

 

"Ah yes, Nazi Germany. Well known for it's capitalist socialist policies"

 

yes but first off the term "NAZI" means NATIONAL SOCIALIST WORKERS PARTY

now onto his socialist policies:

 

Employment for All

"As Fuhrer, Hitler’s first priority was jobs, or the lack of them. German unemployment had peaked at 6 million due to the Depression devastating the economy. With innovative public works schemes such as the building of autobahns, Hitler put every German back to work. He also advocated schemes such as KdF – Strength Through Joy – which gave workers increased benefits for increased levels of production."

 

mandatory public education

"When the mothers had to go out into the work force, the government immediately established child care centers. You could take your children ages 4 weeks to school age and leave them there around-the-clock, 7 days a week, under the total care of the government. The state raised a whole generation of children."

 

Nationalized Healthcare

"After Hitler’s health care was socialized, free for everyone. Doctors were salaried by the government. The problem was, since it was free, the people were going to the doctors for everything. "

 

Gun Control 

Abortion

and of course we couldn't leave out blaming the ills of society on the wealthiest members of society (the jews)

 

with regards to your points firsts off

 

"banning all independent trade unions"

 

you do understand that this is a socialist action right? capitalism encourages the setting up of independent institutions, socialism and communism due to their reliance on the government to put policies in place for everyone would be where we would expect independent institutions to be banned

 

"s like widespread privatization of sectors like mining, banking, railways, public utilities, transportation"

 

um since the nazi regime was totalitarian this is interesting, can you identify the entities within germany at the time that owned these sectors?

 

" Also some very friendly socialist political measures like imprisoning, executing socialists, communists"

 

yeah socialists and communists aren't very loyal to their own... that's no surprise to me might have a lot to do with their ideology being completely logically incoherent

 

"and aligning with the Germany right."

 your link didn't work but i hope you aren't down the ridiculous line of calling hitler a christian?

hitler was an occultist who worshiped the sun and man(the aryan race)

the swastika is itself a symbol which represents the sun
