The Smurfs may not be as innocent as they look. The tribe of little blue creatures who live peacefully among the mushrooms are “steeped in Stalinism and Nazism,” according to a French sociologist.
“Collective work always focuses on self-sufficiency for food and energy,” Antoine Buéno states in “Le Petit Livre Bleu” (The Little Blue Book). “The Smurfs do not have private property; their leader is Papa Smurf who shows very authoritarian and paternalistic characteristics.”

How can you be a Stalinist and a Nazi? The two ideologies are at odds unless you see them as authoritarian. Sad sad sad. Also a lot of people were racist in the 1950's. Maybe true, maybe not but it was not out of character for the period.

I think if people worried more about themselves and the politics of our country instead of how Papa Smurf governs his people, we might be better off.
