Hitler was a National SOCIALIST, who led the Socialist Republic of Germany against the Capitalist Britain. He introduced unemployment benefits, old age pensions and government Work Schemes to give workers jobs, all Socialist policies. Most people see him as right wing only because of his anti-semitism, but that had left wing roots in that he considered that Jewish bankers and Businessmen owned the Capitalist System and exploited the working Class. He was a criminally insane megalomaniac, but that is almost a prerequisite for a Socialist Revolutionary leader: He was much like Stalin and Pol Pot in his thirst for power, his hatred for anyone who opposed him, and his ruthless, murderous totalitarianism. The Gestapo and the NKVD are two sides of teh same coin. Stalin also persecuted the Jewish race in the USSR.

“ This is Socialism… Let them then own land or factories as much as they please. The decisive factor is that the State, through the party, is supreme over them, regardless whether they are owners or workers.”
