    I think they described their economic theory as national capitalism which suggest that the government runs every private business the way they want them to run. It wasn't really free enterprise where individuals do it their way. They had to do it the NAZI way.

    They called themselves National Socialists. Hitler wanted every German citizen who was white and non-Jewish to have a Volkswagen Beetle. And he wanted the Jewish and minority-owned businesses to be taken over by the so-called superior race.

    Why do you ask?

    Exactly, only individual Germans did do it their way through free enterprise. The Third Reich was also against international Socialism, which is what most Socialists of today are, like the madman Obama. However, Hitler was without a doubt a Capitalist, Just ask Krupp, Daimler and Bosch. His comments towards the bourgeois, which basically means The upper class, was used in his early days to unite the middle class workers of Germany. Once he was appointed to Chancellor, actually a few years before after exiting prison, He backed off that rhetoric. People label Hitler a socialist because of his record of uniting workers which they ignorantly relate to Socialist Unions which he was strongly against. Take note here in Chapter 12 of Mein Kampf..........

    National Socialist workers and employers are both together the delegates and mandatories of the whole national community. The large measure of personal freedom which is accorded to them for their activities must be explained by the fact that experience has shown that the productive powers of the individual are more enhanced by being accorded a generous measure of freedom than by coercion from above. Moreover, by according this freedom we give free play to the natural process of selection which brings forward the ablest and most capable and most industrious.

    One has to understand that once Hitler became the leader of Germany, it would have been suicidal for him to be anti-Capitalist. Even prior to that he was funded by many Capitalists. The only time you get to overthrow Capitalism within a nation is by revolution like in Russia and China. Hitler tried his Revolution with the beer hall putsch and failed. That is why he changed his tactics. Hitler did some bad things, but the bullshit concerning this Man's political beliefs is pilled so high it touches the moon. ~BH

    It was common rhetoric in class warfare, then as now.

    The Nazi movement in the early 1920s was very grass roots against teh establishment, ergo the language of the street was used by Hitler.

    Adolph in fact loathed the middle class he himself was part of, and loved in his own mind the simple German peasant farmer which was his ideal German.

    In short, he was a nut.

    He saw the bourgeois class as being selfish to the point that their combined actions lead to eonomic ruin of the nation, perhaps?

    Just guessing of course.

    Trying to understand the ravings of a madman isn't a very productive use of one's time.

    Perhaps for the same reason Fox does when they speak of AIG. Fox just uses 'corporate interests' or 'special interests' or 'the big banks' so they can still rail against 'teh kommunists' despite echoing Marx's warnings about the Bourgeoisie's (rich people) exploitation of the laborer ('working class' or 'middle class')
