"National Socialist" translates to Nationalsozialistischen So "Nazi" for short.

The Nazis weren't capitalist. They seized private property, mandated extensive state control in the economy, and loathed trade with nations that didn't share goals of the Nazi ethnostate.

Socialists seize private property, mandate extensive control in the economy, and loathe the existence of capitalist market societies.

I don't think all socialists are Nazis - but there's an undeniable similarities between the two that make it clear that Nazis were/are socialists.

The word privatization was literally invented to describe Nazi economic policies. Then people still try to say they weren't capitalist

Did you know that 10% of Austria's current parliament consists of people who are members in clubs that would like there to be no border between Austria and Germany?



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

They did gather up thousands of Japanese people and put them in camps because of their race during ww2.

Names means nothing, only polarizing intentions. Socialist National is a term with a purpose: to create membership of the left and people of the center's workers to grow the strength of the party. Just the purpose, nothing more. And yet, the Nazis cultivated private enterprises and privatized masses (1930), expanded military force, spread injustice, false news and Nazi propaganda, the Aryan slogan of superiority, and so on. Nothing like socialism, actually different from most socialism applied in society. There is no nationalization of production assets, no attempts to equalize social life between people and reduce inequalities, the internationalism that socialism was known. There is similarity in the totalitarian question, above all. Until then, the military dictatorship in Chile and Argentina are similar and are notably of the extreme right while the socialism implanted until then is notably left.

Watch the video posted in firts page, it's a great explanation.

The Nazis weren't the biggest advocates of free market and free trade but that didn't make them socialists or left leaning. the Words "socialist" and "worker"(A) in NSDAP weren't really more than camouflage.

Once the Nazis got in charge they destroyed the worker unions, the private property they seized were mostly owned by Jews or regim critics and often times they sold the seized property to germans, they even privatized firms who got aquired by the former german governments. The Nazis were pretty opportunistic in regards to the economy, they did whatever suited their goals the best.

You should really watch the second video I linked, it gives a good idea of the economic situation in germany during that time.

Agreed.  I always love when people try to use the rhetoric that the Nazis were for free market capitalism.  Yea, sure they were.  Well, unless you were part of a group they decided to hate, like the Jews, then they would seize your business and throw you into a concentration camp.  Or if you weren't part of those groups or one of their appointments to run said business, and you didn't do exactly what the Fuhrer wanted you to, then they would seize that business, again, and probably kill you.

Such a wonderful example of free market capitalism. /s

And then they bring up their opposition to Communists as further proof.  Sorry, but that doesn't mean they were completely opposed to their ideals, it just means they were fighting for the same power.  No different than different factions of radical Muslims fighting each other for control.  We can compare them to Communist Russia to see an example of how there is barely any difference.  It all just leads to fascism in the end, while the people lose freedom and suffer at the hands of a totalitarian government that says it's only doing things for the betterment of the "mother land."

And formed the KKK.  And led to its resurgence in the early 1900s.  And were the ones who put Jim Crow laws in place.

It's comical to see liberals say Trump is the exact same and Hitler, and conservatives say he is socialist.

Neither is correct, nor does it even matter. He was a fascist who got complete control. Learn that lesson. You can hate on socialists or conservatives for other reasons.

First they came for the socialists, and I did not speak out—
     Because I was not a socialist.

Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not speak out—
     Because I was not a trade unionist.

Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—
     Because I was not a Jew.

Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.

I think I will trust the words of someone who was ACTUALLY there.
