Socialism is the idea that everyone should be equal and have civil rights. Fascism takes the exact opposite idea, saying that one man should have rights and power over all. Nazism is simply more extreme Fascism. Nazism simply adds the Master Race theory that one race is superior to others. Other fascist nations didn't believe in a master race. It's like supporting Marxism or Marxism-Leninism. marxism suggests that the People themselves should rise, and Marxism-Leninism has many of the same ideals, but they believe in a Vanguard doing it for the People. Just a few tweaks, but still more extreme.
Socialism isn't exactly equality, and there was/are too many civil rights. In socialism, the hardest and richest workers have to give back to the lower class. There is also a large emphasis on helping those "who can't help themselves". These welfare systems are greatly abused, because someone with agoraphobia or ADD "can't help themselves", and are able to live off of other peoples money. I support the GI bill and government aid to people who are actually disabled, however they are a minority within welfare systems. The USA already has a socialized economy and medical system, which gives "affordable healthcare" to the citizens. It should be noted that this affordable healthcare came with great downsides. Medical workers are paid less, medical supplies more scarce, and waiting times for operations much greater. America's socialized medicine program is also adding 6.2 trillion to their deficit. I live in Canada and we gained a socialized healthcare program a while back, and I would rather pay for medical care than wait for months on end just so I can mooch off of society. I'm sure most of you socialists hate Obamanism, his form of socialism. Maybe his ideals have just scorned mine of socialism.
Also, Nazi Germany was a Fascist National-Socialist Authoritarian Dictatorship. I am unsure of the differences between National Socialism and Marxism and whatnot, it is not mine to judge.
...Hitler was NOT marxist. He occupied the other side of the political spectrum from socialism. Obama is not a socialist, either. It remains that his policies are centre-left. Socialism is far-left, but more extreme than Libertarianism. Rebublicanism is centre-right, and Fascism is far-right, with Nazism being as far right as it is possible to go. FASCISM AND NAZISM ARE COMPLETELY OPPOSITE OF SOCIALISM. Does that mean that if you call an apple an orange, that it makes it an orange? No. He simply put "socialist" in his party name to attract support from workers. Which he later shot in the back, because he DIDN'T want them free.
The left side of politics is for less government, the farthest left being none at all, or Communism/Anarchism. The right side of politics is for more government, the farthest right being Fascist dictatorship.
I should know, because I'm on an island right now with 400 residents, and it's an anarchistic area with little to no crime. Sure, smoking weed's fine there, but you don't have theft and murder. And trust me, we're not fascist. We're socialist.
Ahh, only 400? That's pretty cool. I take back what I said about the failures of socialism, because any government can work in very small populations. I can picture a small peaceful socialist island where everyone contributes for eachother. The problem is when you have hundreds of millions in a socialist country, that is where it is impossible.
That's why my agenda features "decentralization", thus limiting socialism to cities, towns, and small islands such as the one I'm occupying. Thus, it's applied on a small enough level that Communism nationally applied is brought to the masses more effectively.
I do my best, while the government thinks I`m one of them. Inconspicuous mole by day, Communist Revolutionary by night. It helps having a foothold in the enemy`s chain of command, so it gets easier to pull it all down.
