Hitler and the Democrats: Leftwing Kindred

“When trying to come to grips with Hitler, we need to realize that he was first and foremost a socialist. Socialists, of course, come in different stripes and varieties. What they all invariably share, however, is their conviction that society should be commanded by the State. To put it another way, socialists hold the view that the State should be in charge. They believe that the State should set the course not only for the nation’s economy but also be in control of the public square as well as of the private lives of its citizens. In sum, a socialist is someone who believes that society should be run and controlled by the State.
