Its neither a line nor a circle.

The fact is, the Nazis were National Socialists (which is what their name means). There was nothing conservative about them. For example, their party anthem, “Die Fahne hoch!“ mentions martyrs killed by the Red front and the Reaction (conservatives). The most enthusiastic segment of the population supporting the Nazis were teachers, roughly those at the equivalent of our high-school level. Think of our own unionized teachers for comparison.

Hitler is dead, but I often think that national socialism is probably the commonest form of government in the world today. Naturally, its practitioners would rather not admit the connection.

Thank you. The whole meme of the Nazis as a right wing organization is simply socialist propaganda. It's amazing that you still run into it even here on good old FR.

Agreed.

The Nazis can be found below in the godless area labeled "despots".
