Sorry! I guess I should have read slower.
And that is all you needed to say, along with posting your newly discovered 'link'. If you're here only to educate yourself, why are you focusing on critical analysis of me and other members and refuting what I and they have to say?
I am a moderate, not affiliated with either side. Lame post and, for a new member, really audacious.
You just plagiarized my post in a mocking and troll fashion, and that is against the rules, as far as I know. Kindly stop with your assault on me. I acknowledged your earlier posts and thanked you for the feedback. Find someone else to attack.
You replied to my earlier post. Am I not entitled to a rebuttal? I am refuting what you had to say because I disagree.

I would claim that the Nazis were a left wing party because many of their early policies were indeed Socialist but would just contend that point as it's a whole new discussion.
Most prisoners in the early concentration camps were German Communists, Socialists, Social Democrats, Roma (Gypsies), Jehovah's Witnesses, homosexuals...
The left-wing uprisings against the Bolsheviks were a series of rebellions and uprisings against the Bolsheviks in the aftermath of the 1917 Russian Revolution that were led or supported by left-wing groups such as Socialist Revolutionaries, Left Socialist Revolutionaries, Mensheviks and anarchists. Some were in support of the White Movement, while some tried to be an independent force. The uprisings started in 1918 and continued during and after the Russian Civil War until around 1924. The Bolsheviks increasingly abandoned attempts to invite these groups to join the government and instead suppressed them with force.

Right Wing Watch
People For the American Way's Right Wing Watch is dedicated to monitoring and reporting on the activities of right-wing political organizations, in order to expose the agenda of the extreme Right. Our researchers monitor dozens of broadcasts, emails and websites, and use their expertise on right-wing movements to analyze and distill that information for the general public.
Thanks for the site - I'd not heard of it before - again thanx.

You seem to be sticking to hide bound political definitions. I would call the banning of all trade unions but the official one, a prices and income policy as well as things like the huge resort built in northern Germany for worker holidays, cruise holidays for workers ( all paid out of the workers contributions but put forward as a gift from the state ), suggest a more centralised economic policy than the purely capitalist model.
The prices and income policy I would perhaps point out as the more telling as to the level of State control. These can be ascribed to any totalitarian regime but would propose central planning like this is redolent of what is viewed as socialist economic policy whilst understanding that it in no way represents the full model, I've only put forward that some of the regime's policies could be viewed as such. Perhaps now it would be viewed as a mixed economic model? After all private enterprise had to get permission to lay off any workers.
