Yes, Nazism Is Socialism
August 4th, 2019 | RR
Germany during World War II can't be considered a socialist nation, but the Nazi Party was a socialist party at its core. Academics will always teach history based on Germany's brief direction under Adolf Hitler during the war, without fully teaching the overall purpose, goals and principles of the National Socialist German Worker's Party. It's through this short history and limited scope that we're made to believe that the Nazis were right-wing when, in fact, the Nazis and Adolf Hitler were socialists who used privatization, slave labour and authoritarian policies as a temporary means to quickly build an army to conquer Europe. Their overall goal was to build a socialist ethnostate designed around an ideal race and culture.
Even modern neo-Nazism is based on creating a white, socialist ethnostate with the purpose of supporting white unity, comradery and cooperation. These groups are called “far right” only because they support nationalism and ethnic cleansing, which are two things mainstream media and academia have attributed to right-wing politics and movements—on their own, made-up political scales. When it comes to social and economic policies, these groups are based on the original Nazi Party's goals and platform, which aimed to achieve complete social ownership of labour and production by ethnically pure whites. These policies make neo-Nazism and the Nazi Party left-wing in their ideology, but modern academics and media find these facts too inconvenient to share with the rest of us.
The Nazis and Adolf Hitler, himself, were socialists. Hitler hated “communism” and Marxism not as ideologies, but as trademarks of the new Soviet Empire. The Soviet Union was a massive empire that stood in Germany's way, meaning his hatred of communism was more about who bared the moniker than about the actual ideology itself. It was also about optics. At the time, it was important to paint communists (Soviets) as foes who posed a threat to the German way of life.
Most of Hitler's writings and recorded beliefs are in line with Marxism, despite his professed hatred for the ideology.
Modern media and academia are wrong about Nazis, not because they're unaware of what Nazis actually stood for, but because they don't want us to link Nazism to modern socialism—which is already tainted, undeniably, by Stalin and Che Guevara, whose atrocities are also ignored by proponents of socialism in North America.
A Socialist Ethnostate - Ethnosocialism
The State's primary role under the Nazi Party was to provide a livelihood for its citizens. “We demand that the State shall make its primary duty to provide a livelihood for its citizens. If it should prove impossible to feed the entire population, foreign nationals must be deported.” That was from the Nazi Party's first official proposals in 1920.
Hitler's Minister of War Production, Albert Speer, quoted Hitler as saying, “One of these days I’ll sweep away this outrage and nationalize all corporations.” Hitler said this during the war, after he had privatized German industries.
The main objective proposed by Hitler as a founding tenant of Nazism was, “The common interest before self-interest.”
That sounds an awful lot like modern socialism to me. Without the twist on multiculturalism, Hitler's views on common interest and the role of the state were identical to what modern socialists believe. The defining purpose of the Nazis never changed during World War II, it was only Hitler's ambitions to quickly conquer Europe that changed Germany's course on a temporary basis. Had Hitler won the war or retreated and settled with just Poland and Eastern Europe, the Nazi Party would have likely re-nationalized most of its industries and finished cleansing the population of elements Hitler deemed undesirable, like Jews and the unfit.
Privatization was only a means to an end in Nazi Germany. One of Marxism's most popular tenets, exercised even today, is “the ends justify the means”. Modern Antifa radicals use the same principle when they smash storefronts, cause riots and use violence against people they deem unworthy. Today's Antifa are similar to yesterday's Brownshirts. Both rely on intimidation, fear and violence to achieve the goals of their powerful overlords.
When the Nazis first came to power, before the war, they enacted massive public works programs, one of which included the construction of the famous Autobahn. The eventual purpose of war was then to acquire “living space” that would help disperse any of Germany's surplus population and gain land to feed and support Germans. This concept was started by the first German empire during World War I and they called it Lebensraum. Hitler's version of Lebensraum was more extreme and involved killing and removing indigenous populations from conquered land, including Jews and Slavs, to prioritize ethnically pure Germans.
Hitler's overall goal, or endgame, involved eventual world domination. His minister of propaganda, Joseph Goebbels, once said, “Whoever dominates Europe will thereby assume the leadership of the world.” At the time, Europe was still the global centre of cultural and economic influence and, therefore, offered the most clear path to world dominance.
The problem with modern academia is that they never talk about the economic intentions of the Nazis as they were written in the party's many manuscripts and records. Instead, we are taught mostly about Hitler's New Order from a social and racial perspective. His plan to rapidly implement a new order that centred around ethnically pure Aryans is the main focus of historical teachings, with no emphasis on what Nazi Germany's final economic and social goals entailed after such a state were successfully created.
Hitler and his Nazis knew that perpetual war and conquest were impossible. Eventually, there would be nothing left to conquer and no new land to colonize—so, then what? The endgame involved creating an Aryan superpower that would go unchallenged, but that's where history classes stop. They don't tell us much about the plans that Nazis had to manage such a society, despite top intellectuals within the party, Hitler himself and the Nazi platform clearly stating those plans.
The Nazi Party's plan to manage a perfect, ethnically pure Aryan state involved public ownership of manufacturing, production and the economy. Radically transforming Germany into a rapidly expanding military machine was only one small part of a long term plan. The plans to manage this new society sounded a lot like what we call socialism today. The evidence for this is in the many documents and writings of Hitler and other Nazi leaders and scholars.
War would have eventually become unnecessary and Aryan whites would have been at the top of the social and economic food chain. A socialist utopia made up of one race, one religion and one culture was the overall goal of the Nazis. It sounds a lot like the stuff John Lennon sang about in “Imagine”.
Why Hitler Hated Marxism And Capitalism
Hitler identified with a lot of Marxist principles, despite throwing heavy shade at what he called “Jewish Marxism” in his book, Mein Kampf. To Hitler, both Marxism and capitalism were tools for Jews to dominate the world and extort wealth and power from gentiles. He viewed Marxism as a means to transfer power from a working class of people to powerful, elitist Jews at the top. He thought the same about capitalism.
In 1920, Hitler told a crowd in Munich, “We are convinced that socialism in the right sense will only be possible in nations and races that are Aryan, and there in the first place we hope for our own people and are convinced that socialism is inseparable from nationalism.”
"A socialist utopia made up of one race, one religion and one culture was the overall goal."
Hitler was a Marxist at heart, in principle and at his core. The only way socialism would work, according to him, was in an ethnically and culturally homogeneous society without Jews. The only real reason Hitler hated Marxism was because Karl Marx was ethnically Jewish. As for the values espoused by Marx, Hitler found a place for them among ethnically pure Aryans. In essence, Hitler rejected Marxism in name, not in principle, and he rejected Karl Marx due to his blinding and irrational hatred of Jews.
Hitler hated capitalism for the same reason he hated Marxism: it worked to enable and strengthen Jewish supremacy and wealth. “The Jews have shown real genius in profiting by politics. This capitalistic people, which was brought into existence by the unscrupulous exploitation of men, has understood how to get the leadership of the Fourth Estate into its own hands; and by acting both on the Right and on the Left it has its apostles in both camps,” Hitler told a small crowd in 1922.
Hitler hated both capitalism and Marxism because he believed they were linked to Jews and Jewish supremacy. To say that Hitler's hatred of Marxism automatically makes him right-wing is like saying his hatred for capitalism makes him left-wing. So, which is it? We can only judge by what he said and believed.
Hitler never made the link between Marxism and socialism. To him, socialism was separate from the views of communism in practice and in principle. Theoretically, they are different despite their similarities. In today's political discourse, we spend a lot of time making communism, socialism and Marxism synonymous, but Hitler never did the same.
Hitler tried to redefine socialism as an ideology exclusive to Aryans. The principles and practices were the same, but the purpose and history were different. Hitler tried to separate Marxism from Jews by separating socialism from Marxism. One of the most interesting quotes from Hitler happened during an interview with George Sylvester Viereck in 1923:
“Socialism is the science of dealing with the common weal. Communism is not Socialism. Marxism is not Socialism. The Marxians have stolen the term and confused its meaning. I shall take Socialism away from the Socialists,” he said.
“Socialism is an ancient Aryan, Germanic institution. Our German ancestors held certain lands in common. They cultivated the idea of the common weal. Marxism has no right to disguise itself as socialism.”
The most interesting part of Hitler's statement was when he said, “We might have called ourselves the Liberal Party. We chose to call ourselves the National Socialists. We are not internationalists.”
Hitler summed up his definition of socialism in a speech to the Reichstag in 1935 when he said, “National Socialism does not attach importance to only a theoretical rule of the working class, but especially on the practical improvement of their living conditions and standard of living.” In the book Spandau:The Secret Diaries, by Albert Speer, Hitler is quoted to have said, “They bring in high earnings without work. One of these days I’ll sweep away this outrage and nationalize all corporations.”
Hitler's own definition of socialism is that of those who support modern socialism today. The only difference between Hitler's brand of socialism and modern socialism is the emphasis on multiculturalism and globalism. Hitler's brand of socialism rejected internationalism, but it was still socialism.
The Purpose Of Privatization
The Nazis used privatization as a means to finance and build the German military for conquest. Hitler's privatization of manufacturing companies and auto makers wasn't ideological, it was practical. Hitler's massive and rapid military budget created enormous budget deficits that required immediate remedies. Those remedies involved teaming up with wealthy German (and American) industrialists and corporations to develop machinery and weapons.
In exchange for public contracts, the Nazis made deals with wealthy businessmen and companies from around the world. By no means did this make Germany a capitalist country—it was crony capitalism and oligarchy, similar to what Russia is under Vladimir Putin.
As quoted by Albert Speer, Hitler had intentions to some day “nationalize all the corporations” in Germany. Privatization was temporary, but necessary to quickly build a war machine using other people's money on a basis of mutual exchange. By getting private corporations and industrialists to invest capital into the German war machine, Hitler found a way to build his military more quickly than socialism would have allowed. Once his objectives were complete, the Nazis would have nationalized all of the remaining corporations—just as Hitler had intended.
Hitler used private money and investments to replace a depleted public treasury. As public money ran out and Germany went broke, private money given by industrialists who sympathized with the Nazi agenda was used to fill the void. Had Hitler won the war, these wealthy industrialists would have been rewarded and their corporations would have been nationalized at no cost to them.
It was a win-win situation for wealthy anti-Semitic elites and the Nazi Party.
Nazism Is Ethnosocialism
Next time you hear a politician or a leftist tell you that conservatives are Nazis and that Hitler was right-wing, correct them. Yes, Nazis used capitalism and cronyism to their advantage, but capitalism was never their overall intent. Hitler's own words made his intentions clear. He wanted to build a war machine and conquer Europe quickly, hoping to install an ethno-socialist Aryan state.
Had the Nazis won the war, or quit while they were ahead, we would have seen a different scenario unfold. The wealthy industrialists who helped build the Nazi empire would have been rewarded, as they already were by Nazi Germany, and their corporations would have eventually been nationalized. Sadly, anyone who was deemed unfit or genetically inferior would have been used in slave labour or murdered. Hitler's despicable ethnic cleansing would have continued until his “New Order” and Thousand Year Reich was realized, leaving behind a homogeneous Aryan culture based on comradery, socialism and community. To describe his perfect world, Hitler said, “There will no longer exist any individual arbitrary will, nor realms in which the individual belongs to himself. The time of happiness as a private matter is over.”
Spoken like a true socialist.
