Re: What a load of crap

How can you consider Naziism left wing when the NSDAP did not hope for the abolition of capitalism, nor for workers' control, both elements of socialism?

It's true the NSDAP started out socialist but Hitler had other ideas. In fact, the Nazi party at one time had two wings, a nationalist wing under Hitler and a socialist wing under Gregor Strasser, who considered himself a personal friend of Hitler's.

Having said that, the book "Liberal Fascism: The Secret History of the American Left, From Mussolini to the Politics of Meaning" by Jonah Goldberg argues that the original fascists were really on the left.
