National Socialism (Nazism) is a very different phenomenon than International Socialism (Communism). It has to be understood as collectivism of the Right, not of the Left. Hitler hated what he saw as "decadent liberalism" and indicated as much throughout "Mein Kampf." He was anything but a "liberal." You'd think the son of a congressman would get that one right. Apparently not.

Think again, sparky. Hitler had two well known pornographers among his close buddies (Goebbels and Goering) and an equally well-known sadist (Himmler). Perhaps that's why the left excused them?

Carl, please read your Hayek. Naziism/Fascism are simply one side of the coin- the obverse is Communism, and there is little difference between them. anderson659 is quite correct.

Nazi stood for the German acronym of the socialist party of the time, please look up the definition of what Nazi means in German before commenting on what it was.. Fascism is a collective of the far left where the state manages and controls everything under one leader. This is what Nazi was, pure and simple.

A fuhrer, that is as classic a far left definition as one can find.

BTW Hitler did not like communists, they were his ideological competitors of the time. Religion and business were shunned as all far left fascists and communists do.

What essential difference does it make?

Both were and are visions of Utopia enforced at gunpoint!

That is precisely why we hate it; it is untenable in every respect because it denies the individual his freedom as well as denies his divine origin.

Progressives can’t help themselves. When a normal person hears of a tragedy, they feel the natural range of emotions – fear, anger, sympathy, etc. But progressives are not normal humans. When they hear news of a tragedy their first thought is “How can this help the cause?” There’s something oddly perverse about this mental defect that somehow overrides decency in tragedy’s aftermath, but it’s as widespread amongst the political left as freckles are on redheads.

Harsh? Perhaps. But sometimes the truth hurts.

In the hours after the Boston Marathon bombing, the usual suspects of progressive grave-dancers succumbed to the music...
