I mean seriously if you think that a command economy is somehow the hallmark of the Nazi party then you're a moron. First of all, the Nazis' economic policies were scattershot and in no way the center of their dogma. They believed in some form of capitalism as social darwinism to weed out the incompetents in the same way that they rejected government aid to the poor. Eventually taking control of those corporations that they originally claimed that they were leaving to their own devices was the whim of the Fuhrer and not based in any kind of central political belief beyond the idea that business should ultimately benefit the German race. The Nazis had no economic policies to speak of that made sense. They just did what Hitler wanted.

The entire point of any kind of Nazi economic policies was based entirely around the benefit of the German race (as already stated) as the Nazis were obsessed with the preservation and rejuvenation of a prelapsarian ideal of the German people that is entirely a right wing ideal based in a religious zeal for THE PAST. Nothing that the Nazis did was for a socialist revolution. Everything that they did was for the kind of City on a Hill worshipping, conservative, nationalist dogma that rejects progress and deifies an idealized form of the perfect German man, which is ultimately what right wing, conservative ideology does as well, if in a less concentrated, terrifying form.

But hey they didn't like American capitalism so they're commies, right?
Upvoted.

Hate to burst your bubble, Goofle, but didn't Hitler also try to weed out the Communists in his quest for power? If the Nazis were left wing, then Reagan must have been a flaming liberal.

Well thought out post BTW, Batty.

Right wing may be capitalism lovers/patriots/badass/no bull**** artists.

I've read something about this relating to Kiss, Kid Rock and Ramones...

And, I'm not sure but, for me, Rock never fit leftists ways of life. Rock is about something big, free, brave, rich, angry, something to conquer the world.

This moralist left discourse just doesn't fit.

Rock is about sex, not about love pinguins.

This is how I feel. Maybe it's just me.

Not to mention a bunch of punk bands that came out of England, you know, like the Clash?
