Hitler was Left-Wing

Here is an article on the lessons of the Holocaust which demolishes the preconceived notion of many people that the Nazis were "right-wing."

One of the biggest misconceptions about Adolph Hitler and the Nazis is that they were somehow fundamentally different from Joseph Stalin and the Communists. Hitler is "right wing" and Stalin is "leftist." This is evident in the insipid comparison of Bush and Hitler. Briefly, people believe Hitler an extreme Republican and Stalin an extreme Democrat. Nothing could be further from the truth – in fact they are both extremist in their hatred of private property and liberty. Hitler’s hatred of the Communists was mere rhetoric because when looked at, both he and Stalin did not differ in their Hegelian belief that "man owes his entire existence to the state." Share
