“I am a socialist.” – Hitler, from his “Zweites Buch” (Second Book) Page 50.
Some continue to believe that Hitler and National Socialism wasn’t REAL (National) Socialism. Some believe that the totalitarian State of the Third Reich had no power at all, and that the market was ‘free’. They want to believe that Hitler and his State had NO control over the economy, and that the ideology of National Socialism didn’t call for the creation of a ‘People’s State’ after the conquest of Lebensraum. Yes, 80 years after the events in question, many are still pushing a contradictory narrative that directly goes against the colossal amount of evidence pointing towards the opposite conclusion, and then refuse to even consider the possibility that they might be wrong in their interpretation. Well today, we will walk through numerous primary and secondary sources, show the substantial amount of flaws in the denialist argument, and present a solid interpretation of the evidence that makes much more sense than the denialist argument ever has.
I am NOT a Fascist, NOT a National Socialist, and NOT a Marxist Socialist. And I am NOT promoting said ideologies.
