Is it true that Nazism was a form of Socialism?

    Well fucking look it up - it's all in the historical record.

    The large industries that supported the Nazi war effort - which began building up as soon as Hitler took power - were private, corporate, capitalist, profit-making concerns. That was the basis of the German economy under Nazi government. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Krupp https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IG_Farben

    The German Nazi government did not even own its central bank - the Reichsbank was a privately owned, for -profit, capitalist entity. You can't get much less socialistic than a capitalist owned for-profit central bank.

    Look: German industry was not just an example of corporate capitalism at the time, it was the world's premier example - as of 1938, when Hitler launched the European phase of WWII, those were some of the largest, oldest, most profitable, best established industrial corporate capitalist entities on the planet. The current attempt to present the Nazis, and fascism in general, as "leftwing" or "socialist", is one of the most bizarre features of the current Republican propaganda operations - just the strangest thing.

    The Big Lie is very real.
