    His party affiliation was with the National Socialist German workers Party. During his reign as Reich Chancellor and as Furher he set into motion many programs that centralized government,redistributed wealth,nationalized banks and industry,regulated pay,controlled media,controlled firearms,youth indoctrination programs and had cabinet members who were concidered "radicals" by many. Sound familiar? Definitely left wing! firearmsyouth indoctrination programs cabinet members concidered radicals sound familiar wing

    And he rallied the masses!

    A Dictatorship cant be socialistic. It may pretend to be thats all.

    That's what Hitler was though. He was a dictator and the government was a socialist system.

    Pity it wasn't a shining example of a Republic, like, oh, the People's Republic of China.

    The National Socialists were a reactionary, ANTI-socialist party. They were created to fight socialism. That was their primary objective.

    Why then were programs like "Strength through joy" set up that were extremely socialist in nature?

    Every government that has ever existed has featured at least a small number of programs which can be described as "socialist in nature", but that doesn't make the government a socialist government. The military is a socialist program, but even the Nazi government of Adolph Hitler had a military.

    How little you know about this subject,Strength Through Joy was no "small" program.Nor was the Nationalisation of the banking and manufacturing industries(another socialist trait). The Leibensborne Program was yet another that was not a "small" program. Would you like me to name off at least a dozen more socialistic programs that were by no means "small" that were instituted under Hitler and the NSDAP.

    It isn't socialism unless the little guy gets a fair part of the pie.Any government can step in and dictate how business will run to increase profits.This is fascism not socialism.The two are close,but the difference is who the government is trying to help.Hittler lied and ran on a "socialist" party,same as we get now a days.Hittler was only conserned about building as much money as possible to take over the world,not about people.

    German citizens did get a fair part of the pie ,do some research on the Strength Through Joy Program.This program was for the most part in full swing until the war started going badly for Germany. Also you could read Mein Kampf if you would like to find even more socialistic views.

    Hitler actually privatized banks, ship yards, railways etc. That is a historic fact. Hitler has more in common with Reagan than he has with Obama.

    A fact that cannot be denied.

    I don't know with who you spoke about Hitler before but at least I got detailed knowledge about Hitler and Nationalsozialismus in school..and yeah, naturally as a German I'm interested in such an important part of the German history and therefore I have knowledge. You say that you're German, too...so did you grow up in Germany?
  • Nighteyes gwts 2009/10/30 20:19:37

    this is like deja vu ... have we talked before?
    and no i did not grow up in germany.
    and what about big gov't is right winged?

    yep, I think we have talked but I can't remember about what.
    and well, I grew up in Germany...maybe that's the reason why I see the German history with different eyes than you do.

    and I have no clue what you want to ask me with your last question...what government are you talking about? could you explain please?
  • Nighteyes gwts 2009/10/30 20:30:41

    i think we talked about germany..... and hitler.... haha!!
    uh.. i meant that hitler's germany favored big and controlled-ative govt and how that suffices the general construct of the right winged values.

    did you think about the fact that "right winged values" differ from country to country? Here, take a look at the history of right-wing politics: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/...

    *and here a link to an article about an official project against "right wing extremism"...could it be any more obvious?

    i realize that through history different names have been applied to the same veiw point.
    but republican's back then were not liberals.
    when i say left wing i mean libs. radical libs.
  • gwts Nighteyes 2009/10/31 07:18:57

    well, at least in Germany radical libs are a completely different thing...usually they're fighting with the right wing extremists.
