Yes, National Socialism is REAL socialism. It’s a political ideology. The National Socialist German Workers’ Party was a political party founded by National Socialists, and under Hitler it would later adapt many of Mussolini’s economic policies.
The state controlled the means of production. They simply employed certain measures allowing for the appearance of a market system, but instead of those “markets” being subject to market forces, they were controlled entirely by the government.
To put things in perspective: Under the New Economic Policy, the Soviets employed actual capitalistic measures. Does that mean the Soviets were not socialists — or that the Soviet Union was “far right”? 🤔🤔🤔
The difference between the Progressive and Regressive Left:
If a Progressive disagrees with you, he’ll tell you that you’re wrong.
When a Regressive Leftist disagrees with you, he’ll tell you that you’re Hitler.
