    Are you implying National Socialism is a left-wing ideology? I believe you are confusing National Socialism with Socialism/Communism.

    What are your beliefs?

    It isn't right wing or left wing. Nationalism is right wing, socialism is left wing, you combine them into National Socialism and you get a mix of ideas. As Drim said.

    The party platform was fairly left wing on the whole, as was the Strasser-Rhoem faction of the party, but in practice they were in power they were more right wing, partly because of practical considerations as to the actual effect of such policies, and partly because they needed the support of the Prussian military and industrial leaders.

    I think a cube would be more accurate. Start with this:



    And then add a 3rd dimension of 'exclusionism', ranging from hardline globalists and multiculturalists up to hardline nationalists

    Is NS today really a political movement that can be classified according to a right-left spectrum, or does it belong more in the same sort of category as the Society for Creative Anachronism?

    Gregor Strasser's camp of the NSDAP was the dominant faction in the northern region as late as 1932. It's anti-capitalist 'The Worker' was widely read.
    I often wonder how history would have turned out had the 'revolution after power' has suceeded. Otto Strasser actually broke away to form the Black Front, which I suppose is similar to today's Third Position.

    I'd consider National Socialism to be a broad church.

    I agree in that it's beyond left and right, but if we must categorize it it's more towards the left than the right.

    Read this:

    National Socialism: A Left-Wing Movement

    For far too many years it has been widely accepted that National Socialists are extreme right- wingers, and only rarely have they hesitated to refer to themselves as such. At a certain point, however, it became the official policy of the World Union of National Socialists to avoid the term “right-wing,” claiming that National Socialism does not fit into the pattern of “right” and “left” and instead ought to be considered as standing above this distinction.
    ....
    Where National Socialists are to be found in this spectrum seems quite clear: We are left-wingers—no doubt about it! We do not want to preserve the present system or any part thereof. We do not believe in the foundations of a system that has led our people into the misery of the present time! We do not want to support any institution which is responsible for two world wars between White nations as well as countless minor wars; nuclear rearmament; the pollution of the environment; unemployment; the total disillusionment of young people, who have lost all faith in the future; drug abuse; pornography; and all the other forms of complete degeneracy which are displayed today.

    It's a left wing ideology, which believes in bureaucratic authority and regulation of the details of people's lives, and it's an ideology that even does not have any respect for individual lifes.

    In practice, it also had faith in the power of government to make people happy. Right wing ideologies don't advocate such projects, because conservatives don't have such collectivistic notions of people, that reduce them to pleasure-seekers on demand and to servants of the state at all other times.
    God expects but one thing of you,
    and that is that you should come out of yourself in so far as you are a created being made
    and let God be God in you.
