"The Nazi credo that the individual belongs to the state also applies to business. Some businesses have been confiscated outright, on other what amounts to a capital tax has been levied. Profits have been strictly controlled. Some idea of the increasing Governmental control and interference in business could be deduced from the fact that 80% of all building and 50% of all industrial orders in Germany originated last year with the Government. Hard-pressed for food- stuffs as well as funds, the Nazi regime has taken over large estates and in many instances collectivized agriculture, a procedure fundamentally similar to Russian Communism." - Time Magazine, 1939...
Dummy! Nazi's were right-wing fascist whack-o's, not leftist.
The ignorance of voters like "whatever" is the most frightening thing wrong in this country today.
"We are socialists, we are enemies of today's capitalistic economic system for the exploitation of the economically weak, with its unfair salaries, with its unseemly evaluation of a human being according to wealth and property instead of responsibility and performance, and we are all determined to destroy this system under all conditions." - Adolph Hitler
Early in the 20th Century the Left gained control of the storyline and have propagandized that Fascists are of the Right. In truth, there is little difference between rightwing Fascists and leftwing. But most Dictators/Fascists have, since the beginning of the 20th Century come from the Left.
Walter Duranty was an early example of controlling the message. Duranty, a die-hard pro-Soviet Communist wrote outright fabrications - and was awarded a Pulitzer. He wrote "There is no famine or actual starvation nor is there likely to be" (New York Times, Nov. 15, 1931) even after he'd seen people dying in the streets duriung the Ukranian Holomodor (holocaust). And again - "Any report of a famine in Russia is today an exaggeration or malignant propaganda" (New York Times, August 23, 1933). When the real story started to emerge, Duranty CYA'd, writing "There is no actual starvation or deaths from starvation but there is widespread mortality from diseases due to malnutrition" (New York Times, March 31, 1933, page 13)
Hitler, Stalin, Lenin, Pol Pot, Musolini, Kim Jung Il, Castro, Chavez, Morales - all Fascistic Dictators. And all Leftists.
