"National Socialism" refers to the politics of
the dictatorship which ruled Germany from 1933 to 1945,
"the Third Reich". Nazism is commonly
associated with Fascism; although, the Nazis claimed to
espouse a nationalist totalitarian form of socialism (as
opposed to Marxist international socialism).
The German National Socialist Party advocated
Socialism"). However, some disagree "By
majority consent of both socialists and non-socialists,
National Socialism (Nazism) and kindred movements are not
considered to be socialist." (Salvadori) Despite
Salvadori's statement, some right-wing groups (which wish
to discredit socialism) refer to Nazism as being
socialist; in addition, various leftists see the Nazi
movement as a form of nationalist socialism. Also, many
ordinary moderates simply take the name at face value, as
being National Socialism.
The dictator Adolf Hitler rose to power as leader of a
political party, the National Socialist German Workers'
Party (Nationalsozialistische Deutsche Arbeiterpartei or
NSDAP for short). Germany during this period is also
referred to as Nazi Germany. Nazism was also called
National Socialism (German Nationalsozialismus).
Adherents of Nazism were called Nazis. Nazism has been
outlawed in modern Germany, although tiny remnants, known
as Neo-Nazis, continue to operate in Germany and abroad.
Some historical revisionists disseminate propaganda which
denies or minimizes the Holocaust and other Nazi acts,
and attempts to put a positive spin on the policies of
the Nazi regime and the events which occurred under it.

12 The term Nazi in popular culture
According to "Mein Kampf" (My Struggle), Hitler
developed his political theories by carefully observing
the policies of the Austro-Hungarian Empire. He was born
as a citizen of the Empire, and believed that ethnic and
linguistic diversity had weakened it. Further, he saw
democracy as a destabilizing force, because it placed
power in the hands of ethnic minorities, who had
incentives to further weaken and destabilize the Empire.
The center of the national socialist ideology is the term
race. The Nazi theory says that the Aryan race is a
"master race" superior to other races. This
belief is justified by the following logic.
National Socialism classically says that a nation is the
highest creation of a race. Therefore, great nations
(literally large nations) are said to be the creation of
great races. The theory says that great nations grow from
military power. In turn, military power naturally grows
from rational, civilized cultures. In turn, these
cultures naturally grow from races with natural good
health, and aggressive, intelligent, courageous traits.
The weakest nations are said to be those of impure or
"mongrel" races, because they have divided,
quarrelling, and therefore weak cultures.
According to the Nazis, an obvious mistake of this type
is to permit or encourage multiple languages within a
nation. This belief is why the German Nazis were so
concerned with the unification of German-speaking
Nations that cannot defend their borders were therefore
said to be the creation of weak or slave races. Slave
races were thought to be less worthy of existence than
master races. In particular, if a "master race"
should require room to live (Lebensraum), it was thought
to have the right to take it and kill or enslave the
indigenous "slave races."
Races without homelands were therefore said to be
"parasitic races." The richer the members of a
"parasitic race" are, the more virulent the
parasitism was thought to be. A "master race"
could therefore, according to the Nazi doctrine, easily
strengthen itself by eliminating "parasitic
races" from its homeland.
This was the theoretic justification for the oppression
and elimination of Jews and Gypsies, a duty which most
Nazis (oddly enough) found personally repugnant.
Religions that recognize and teach these
"truths" were said to be "true" or
"master" religions because they create mastery
by avoiding comforting lies. Those that preach love and
toleration, "in contravention to the facts,"
were said to be "slave" or "false"
The man who recognizes these "truths" was said
to be a "natural leader," those who deny it
were said to be "natural slaves." Slaves,
especially intelligent ones, were said to always attempt
to hinder masters by promoting false religious and
However, it is a misconception that Nazism was all about
race - this is probably because of the bad reputation
Nazism has gained after the war, and especially because
of the holocaust. The ideological roots of Nazism are
deeper, and can be found in the romantic tradition of the
19th Century, and especially Friedrich Nietzsche's
thoughts on "breeding upwards" toward the goal
of an ?bermensch.
Nazism and Romanticism
According to Bertrand Russell, Nazism comes from a
different tradition than that of either liberal
capitalism or communism. Thus, to understand values of
Nazism, it is necessary to explore this connection,
without trivializing the movement as it was in its peak
years in the 1930s and dismissing it as a little more
Many historiographers say that the antisemitic element,
which does not exist in the sister fascism movement in
Italy and Spain, was adopted by Hitler to gain popularity
for the movement. Antisemitic prejudice was very common
among the masses in German Empire. It is claimed that
mass acceptance required anti-Semitism, as well as
flattery of the wounded pride of German people after the
defeat of WWI.
But the origin of Nazism and its values come from the
irrationalist tradition of the romantic movement of the
early 19th century. Strength, passion, lack of hypocrisy,
utilitarianism, traditional family values and devotion to
community were valued by the Nazis.
Nazism and the British Empire
Hitler admired the British Empire. Racist theories were
developed by British intellectuals in the 19th century to
control the Indian people and other "savages."
These methods were often copied by the Nazis.
Similarly, in his early years Hitler also greatly admired
the United States of America. In Mein Kampf, he praised
the United States for its anti-immigration laws.
According to Hitler, America was a successful nation
because it kept itself "pure" of "lesser
races." However as war approached, his view of the
United States became more negative and he believed that
Germany would have an easy victory over the United States
precisely because the United States in his later
estimation had become a mongrel nation.
Nazi domestic economic
Nazi economic theory concerned itself with immediate
domestic issues and separately with ideological
conceptions of international economics.
Domestic economic policy was narrowly concerned with
three major goals:
Elimination of unemployment
Elimination of hyperinflation
Expansion of production of consumer goods to improve
middle and lower-class living standards.
All of these policy goals were intended to address the
perceived shortcomings of the Weimar Republic and to
solidify domestic support for the party. In this, the
party was very successful. Between 1933 and 1936 the
German GNP increased by an average annual rate of 9.5
percent, and the rate for industry alone rose by 17.2
percent. However, many economists argue that the
expansion of the Germany economy between 1933 and 1936
was not the result of the Nazi party, but rather the
consequence of economic policies of the late Weimar
Republic which had begin to have an effect.
In addition, it has been pointed out that while it is
often popularly believed that the Nazis ended
hyperinflation, that the end of hyperinflation preceded
the Nazis by several years.
This expansion propelled the German economy out of a deep
depression and into full employment in less than four
years. Public consumption during the same period
increased by 18.7%, while private consumption increased
by 3.6% annually. However, as this production was
primarily consumptive rather than productive (make work
projects, expansion of the war-fighting machine,
initiation of the draft to remove working age males from
the labor force), inflationary pressures began to rear
their head again, although not to the highs of the Weimar
Republic. These economic pressures, combined with the
war-fighting machine created in the expansion (and
concomitant pressures for its use), has led some
commentators to the conclusion that a European war was
inevitable for these reasons alone. Stated another way,
without another general European war to support this
consumptive and inflationary economic policy, the Nazi
domestic economic program was unsupportable. This is not
to say that other more important political considerations
were not to blame. It is only meant to state that
economics have been, and are a primary motivating factor
for any society to go to war.
Internationally, the Nazi party believed that a
international banking cabal was behind the global
depression of the 1930s. The control of this cabal was
identified with the ethnic group known as Jews, providing
another link in their ideological motivation for the
destruction of that group in the holocaust. However,
broadly speaking, the existence of large international
banking or merchant banking organizations was well known
at this time. Many of these banking organizations were
able to exert influence upon nation states by extension
or withholding of credit. This influence is not limited
to the small states that preceded the creation of German
Empire as a nation state in the 1870s, but is noted in
most major histories of all European powers from the
1500s onward. In fact, some transnational corporations in
the 1500 to 1800 period (the Dutch East India Company for
one good example) were formed specifically to engage in
warfare as a proxy for governmental involvement, as
opposed to the other way around.
Using more modern nomenclature, it is possible to say
that the Nazi Party was against transnational
corporations power vis-a-vis that of the nation state.
This basic anti-corporate stance is shared with many
mainstream center-left political parties, as well as
otherwise totally opposed anarchist political groups.
It is important to note that the Nazi Party's conception
of international economics was very limited. As the
National Socialist in the name NSDAP suggests, the
party's primary motivation was to incorporate previously
international resources into the Reich by force, rather
than by trade (compare to the international socialism as
practiced by the Soviet Union and the COMECON trade
organization). This made international economic theory a
supporting factor in the political ideology rather than a
core plank of the platform as it is in most modern
In a economic sense, Nazism and Fascism are related.
Nazism may be considered a subset of Fascism, with all
Nazis being Fascists, but not all Fascists being Nazis.
Nazism shares many economic features with Fascism,
featuring complete government control of finance and
investment (allocation of credit), industry, and
agriculture. Yet in both of these systems, corporate
power and market based systems for providing price
information still existed. Quoting Benito Mussolini:
"Fascism should more appropriately be called
Corporatism because it is a merger of State and corporate
Rather than the state requiring goods from industrial
enterprises and allocating raw materials required for
their production (as in socialist / communist systems),
the state paid for these goods. This allows price to play
an essential role in providing information as to relative
scarcity of materials, or the capital requirements in
technology or labor (including education, as in skilled
labor) inputs to produce a manufactured good.
Additionally, the unionist (strictly speaking,
syndicalist) veneer placed on corporate labor relations
was another major point of agreement. Both the German and
Italian fascist political parties began as unionist labor
movements, and grew into totalitarian dictatorships. This
idea was maintained throughout their time in power, with
state control used as a means to eliminate the assumed
conflict between management labor relations.
These theories were used to justify a totalitarian
political agenda of racial hatred and suppression using
all the means of the state, and suppressing dissent.
Like other fascist regimes, the Nazi regime emphasized
anti-communism and the leader principle (F?hrerprinzip),
a key element of fascist ideology in which the ruler is
deemed to embody the political movement and the nation.
Unlike other fascist ideologies, Nazism was virulently
racist. Some of the manifestations of Nazi racism were:
Anti-Semitism, culminating in the Holocaust
Ethnic nationalism, including the notion of Germans'
status as the Herrenvolk ("master race") and
A belief in the need to purify the German race through
eugenics - this culminated in the involuntary euthanasia
of disabled people
Anti-clericalism was also part of Nazi ideology.
Perhaps the primary intellectual effect has been that
Nazi doctrines discredited the attempt to use biology to
explain or influence social issues, for at least two
generations after Nazi Germany's brief existence.
People and History
The most prominent Nazi was Adolf Hitler, who ruled Nazi
Germany from 30 January 1933 until his suicide on 30
April 1945, led the German Reich into World War II, and
oversaw the murder of over 40 million people. Under
Hitler, ethnic nationalism and racism were joined
together through an ideology of militarism to serve his
After the war, many prominent Nazis were convicted of war
crimes and crimes against humanity at the Nuremberg
The Nazi symbol is the clockwise swastika.
Nazism and Religion
The relationship between Nazism and Christianity can only
be described as complex -- and controversial, since most
modern writers wish to dissociate their own views from
Nazism as much as possible.
Hitler and other Nazi leaders clearly made use of
Christian symbolism and emotion in propagandizing the
overwhelmingly Christian German public, but it remains a
matter of controversy whether Hitler believed himself a
Christian. Some Christian writers have sought to typify
Hitler as an atheist or occultist -- even a Satanist --
whereas non-Christian writers have emphasized Nazism's
outward use of Christian doctrine, regardless of what its
inner-party mythology may have been. The existence of a
Ministry of Church Affairs, instituted in 1935 and headed
by Hanns Kerrl, was hardly recognized by ideologists such
as Rosenberg and by other political decision-makers.
The Nazi Party's relations with the Catholic Church are
yet more fraught. Many Catholic priests and leaders
vociferously opposed Nazism on the grounds of its
incompatibility with Christian morals. As with many
political opponents, many of these priests were sentenced
in the concentration camps for their opposition.
Nevertheless, the Church hierarchy represented by Pope
Pius XII remained largely silent on the issue, and
allegations of the Pope's complicity are today
commonplace. There were also pro-Nazi Catholic leaders
like Bishop Alois Hudal.
Nazism is considered as a kind of fascism
Nazism and Fascism
Nazism is often (but incorrectly) used interchangeably
with Fascism. While Nazism employed stylistic elements of
Fascism, the only serious similarities between the two
were dictatorship, territorial irredentism, and basic
economic theory. For example, Benito Mussolini, the
founder of fascism, did not embrace anti-Semitism until
seduced by his alliance with Hitler, whereas Nazism had
been explicitly racialist from its inception. Spanish
dictator Francisco Franco, often termed a fascist by his
largely Communist opposition, could perhaps be described
as a reactionary Catholic monarchist who adopted little
of fascism but its style.
Toward the end of the 20th century, Neo-Nazi movements
have arisen in a number of countries, including the
United States of America and several European nations.
Neo-Nazism can include any group or organization that
exhibits an ideological link to Nazism. It is frequently
associated with the skinhead youth subculture. Some
fringe political parties, such as the Libertarian
National Socialist Green Party, have also adopted Nazi
Which factors promoted the success of National socialism?
An important question about national socialism is the
question for the factors that promoted its success not
only in Germany, but also in other European countries
(National socialistic movements could be found in Sweden,
Great Britain, Italy, Spain and even in the US) in the
twenties and thirties of the last century?
These factors might have included:
Economic devastation all over Europe after WWI
Lack of orientation of many people after the breakdown of
monarchy in many European countries.
Perceived Jewish involvement in WWI profiteering
Rejection of Communism
Were the Nazis Socialist?
Some have claimed that Nazism was a form of socialism,
although this view is rejected by most historians and by
modern socialists. For more see Socialism and Nazism
The term Nazi in popular culture
The multiple atrocities and extremist ideology that the
Nazis followed have made them notorious in popular
grammar as well as history. The term Nazi is used in
various ways. It's often used to describe groups of
people who try to force an unpopular or extreme agenda on
the general population, and also commit crimes and other
violations on others without remorse. Israel is a common
and extremely controvercial target of the term
"nazi" in describing its treatment of
Palistinians, and it's theoretically racialist policies.
Some of the usages seen in popular culture are seen as
highly offensive. Phrases like "Open Source
Nazi" and "Feminazi" are examples of those
considered objectionable. Even those who are strongly
opposed to e.g. the Open Source movement generally
dislike perceived trivialization of the Nazis, who killed
The term is used so frequently as to inspire
"godwin's law" which states "As an online
discussion grows longer, the probability of a comparison
involving Nazis or Hitler approaches one". Perhaps
as with other offensive words such as nigger and faggot,
the word is being "reclaimed" by the community.
