Discuss if you dare.
That depends I suppose on if you consider a Socialist to be left or right wing.
My first three months on the board, that is all I discussed.
Most conservatives who have read "Road to Serfdom" would unequivocally say left wing. He used socialist arguments, was anti religion, vegetarian, and believed in enforced egalitarianism. The Horst Wessel story was an important part of National socialist ideology, the rich guy who discovers that the morals of the volk are higher than those of the rich and lives as an ordinary person and distributes his wealth.
The Road to serfdom chronicles the progression of social democratic thought, and where it leads to National Socialism.
When it comes to the right wing, there is very little there.
Is it really that simple?
The Nazi Party was a Socialist Movement so i would say he was more Left Wing. His past writings expressed a disdain for Capitalism. The idea that Fascism was a Right Wing Movement is a very big error in Historical recording. Fascism was born of Socialism. I'm not sure who decided it was a Right Wing Movement but it was decided by many Historians. The real History of Fascism is quite different than what the history books say. I would compare Hitler to Hugo Chavez in Venezuela. They are both Nationalist Socialists. They are not Right Wingers. But in the end Hitler & Chavez are just brutal Dictators who need to control everything. That's it in a nutshell.
I've heard Nazism compared to Feudalism, and there are indeed some noticeable similarities.
Would you also argue that Feudalism is left-wing?
how do you make the comparison to feudalism? You need to provide more detail.
Naizism's relation to social democratic theory is right there in its writings.
Hitler was evil! The political spectrum uses left and right, conservative and liberal, radical and revolutionary. Evil is evil, the usual labels aren't necessary or sufficient and don't apply IMHO.

Nazis were socialist in name only. Hitler was a fascist right wing dictator.
