Aftere reading Nenothtu's excellent reply pertaining to socialism, fascism and the Nazis, I wondered if anyone remembers what the acronym 'NAZI' stood for?

"The National SOCIALIST German Workers Party".

Ironically Nazi's practiced Far Right politics.
Nazi Wiki


Nazism (Nationalsozialismus, National Socialism; alternatively spelled Naziism) was the ideology and practice of the Nazi Party and of Nazi Germany. It was a unique variety of fascism that involved biological racism and antisemitism. Nazism presented itself as politically syncretic, incorporating policies, tactics and philosophies from right- and left-wing ideologies; in practice, Nazism was a far right form of politics.


Nazi politics we're influenced by Fascist politics which is consider Far Right.
Fascism


Fascism (pronounced /ˈfæʃɪzəm/) is a radical and authoritarian nationalist political ideology. Fascists seek to organize a nation according to corporatist perspectives, values, and systems, including the political system and the economy. Fascism was originally founded by Italian national syndicalists in World War I who combined left-wing and right-wing political views, but it gravitated to the political right in the early 1920s.Scholars generally consider fascism to be on the far right of the conventional left-right political spectrum.

Correct, (re: fascists). But the fact as I stated can't be denied.

Now, can you deny that the rise in Nazism was a radical change in the German system in the 1930's?

I define conservatism as resistant to change in social structure.


Conservatism (Latin: conservare, "to preserve")[1] is a political and social philosophy that promotes the maintenance of traditional institutions and supports minimal and gradual change in society.
Source:Wiki

So by those definitions, I would be hesitant to call the Nazis conservative.

Now my question would be... What is the difference between a liberal and a progressive?

Philosophies like liberalism or conservatism are just words written on a piece of paper. It is what is in men's hearts that is important. And men's hearts are deeply corrupted. Therefore any political system we create will be less than perfect. Expect strife and corruption no matter who is in power.

If you have done well in life it is because you are lucky more than anything else. Some people take themselves way too seriously.

Star that.
Here is what it boils down to for me...
Nazism=BAD
Soviet Socialism=BAD
Chinese Communism=Largely, BAD
USA Democratic Republic= Almost as BAD as the Chinese system, and getting worse all the time.

There will always be people at the top with those 'deeply corrupted hearts'.

Got proof of that? Didn't think so. You DO know that the tea party rallies were infiltrated by the far left. They ADMITTED it. They gave instructions on negative things to do at the rallies. That's common knowledge.

The tea party isn't racist. Ya'll really should find a different falsehood to try to smear them with.

The fundamentalist christians are trying to claim the politicial movement as its own ... THAT is true.
But the charge of racism is bunk.

I believe that there are plenty of us at the bottom and the middle, too, who are also corrupted. I have heard it said and I agree with it that greed, corruption, injustice and murder are the price of civilization. (Is it worth it?)

I have to admit that I am a flawed human being who is often wrong and I have done a lot of things of which I am ashamed. I have given up on trying to make the world a better place in lieu of trying to make myself a better person.

Good luck to you and yours!

Yes, if we only worried about our own actions, as in how we teach our children and treat others, everything would be fine. It's just when you have evil ones at the top, they have such a huge effect on everyone else.

Thanks, and the same to you.

Well that is a tough question to explain. Luckily I have found two sites explaining Nazi ideology which was Conservationism and Nationalism. As well a site explaining the difference between Liberals and Progressives.

Good post. Wake up more people. We need to expose the left for who they really are.


Not only the establishment-controlled left have to be exposed, let's see if we can expose the establishment-controlled right.

The David Sirota article was good, very informative for me. Thanks.

Sounds like Liberal is Progressive-light. Interesting that he covered my former take on the progressive tag at the very beginning of the article. I thought it was just a new name for liberals that were tired of being called that.
After reading it, I can think that they found a new name for hard-line liberals to make plain old liberals seem more moderate!

Nice post!

I must be a sick puppy, though. When I looked at your third jpg, I thought I saw two 'phallic symbols' , both pointing into that 'eye'. Then I thought of how both parties have been giving us the shaft in our other 'eye' for so long.

It's called normal!


There has to something wrong upstairs if you see things as being black and white, and hard-line(one way) on every issue.

I am a Libertarian. What kind of Republican agrees with legalization of unspeakable things? Not decriminalization, legalization..... And I am not a user! excluding nicotine of course.

Says you and FOX news

Can you prove that 100% of racist xenophobic signage was the work of the far left?

Got proof of that?

No way!

I must come off as surly or something. I tried 'friending' you a couple of minutes ago, but that isn't working right now, I guess. But I will do that later!
