The right loves to pretend that Nazism was socialist and on the left but everyone knows better. Nazis were a type of FASCIST and that is on the right, folks. No way around it.<quoted text>
Nazi is basically short for "National Socialist" in German.
I'm not a socialist; nor do I believe in fascism as such - like the fascism you expressed in this thread toward Masud.
If I am not correct, let me know but, aren't you a socialist, Savant?
So you're pro-fascism *and* pro-National socialism.
Looks like you fit the label of "Nazi" here, kid; not I.
When the USSR was falling, reporters were referring to the hardliners, the Stalinists, as the conservatives, LOL!!! The liberals were those who wanted democracy. And THAT is accurate.Liberal has meant power to the people, curtailing the power of the oppressive ancien régime, and so on.
I used to call the Soviets red fascists and I think that is accurate.
I think the political spectrum is NOT a linear dichotomy of left-right, but more like a circle or perhaps a cone. There are several dichotomies at work, including that between state-anarchy. Both left and right can lead to anti-statism. On the right it's called libertarianism.
I as an anarchist moved very far to the left and ran into Ron Paul coming around the other side. As an anarchist I want protection for the people from corporate power. Ron Paul worries more about the state, but he acknowledges that our current system is that of a corporate state.
As for Rand Paul, I think he's a Tea-Party nut.
A demosocialist, which Savant seems to be, is hardly a Nazi. Get real. He's not a red fascist either. What I hear him supporting in here is similar to Scandinavian demosocialism. Who in their right mind would call the Swedish system "fascist" or "Nazi"? Nobody.
