"We ask that the government undertake the obligation above all of providing citizens with adequate opportunity for employment and earning a living. The activities of the individual must not be allowed to clash with the interests of the community, but must take place within its confines and be for the good of all. Therefore, we demand: an end to the power of the financial interests. We demand profit sharing in big business. We demand a broad extension of care for the aged. We demand the greatest possible consideration of small business in the purchases of national, state, and municipal governments. In order to make possible to every capable and industrious [citizen] the attainment of higher education and thus the achievement of a post of leadership, the government must provide an all-around enlargement of our entire system of public education We demand the education at government expense of gifted children of poor parents The government must undertake the improvement of public health by protecting mother and child, by prohibiting child labor by the greatest possible support for all clubs concerned with the physical education of youth. We combat the materialistic spirit within and without us, and are convinced that a permanent recovery of our people can only proceed from within on the foundation of the common good before the individual good."
From the political program of the Nazi Party, adopted in Munich, February 24, 1920
I'm sorry but your post is unreadable.
"Remember, from history that the American Left (Communists) was virulently against helping Britain fight Hitler ---- until..... Hitler attacked Russia then they were mad because we weren't already in the fight."
Hitler was fighting the communists in the streets of Munich from 1923 onward. He hated them and they hated him.
The American left hated Hitler also until Stalin entered into a pact with Hitler on Aug 23, 1939. It was a completely cynical pact entered into only because each of them was trying to out-game the other, and it lasted until June 22, 1941, when Hitler won that phase of the game by successfully launching a surprise invasion of Russia. So when you say the "American Left (Communists) was virulently against helping Britain fight Hitler" you're only talking about a period of less than two years, and your only talking about the Stalinist left, not the entire left. In fact Stalin's pact with Hitler was a major cause of numerous factional breaks within the American left at the time.
As I said above, this period of history has been heavily researched. The only way to approach it is to be completely rigorous in regard to the facts. Otherwise you end up looking kind of foolish.
ah all that you've said is true but the demonstrations on the streets and the opposition to what FDR was trying to do from 39 until Barbarossa kicked off is also true.
sorry for the bold...try copy n pasting the text in a wordpad document...That seems to make it easier to read.
