    RiverDad responded: Let me try that out. "If the only sources of information about National Socialism you provide for students are negative portrayals, the knowledge the student will be inherently biased."

    Why aren't you advocated treating the teaching of National Socialism in the same manner as you advocate the teaching of other forms of socialism? Relatedly, why shouldn't all teachings about socialism follow the way that we teach National Socialism in our schools?
    I am against portraying National socialism as a representation of all forms of socialism. the flaws and failure of national socialism does not mean every form of socialism is flawed.

    Budweiser and Coors are beer. Communism and Facism are Socialism. It's that simple.

    Wrong again! Fascism is not socialism, no matter how much you plug your ears and say "LA LA LA LA I CAN'T HEAR YOU."

    Facism and Communism share themes in socialism but that does not mean they are the same thing.

    You're still evading the issue. You claim that there are some good features about socialism and you want to teach those good features to students. I, and others, claim that there are no such good features at all. I ask you why you don't also teach the good features of National Socialism so that students can make that informed decision you claim you want them to make? I'm sure that you could find some people who actually think that there are good features to National Socialism. You don't have to be the judge here. Most of us realize that National Socialism and Socialism have no good features and so we don't have to teach these supposed good features to our students. Teaching them about all of the bad features does the job intended.

    It's a sin against common sense and decency that most of our young people think that Communism/Socialism is not as bad as National Socialism.

    Of course, calling National Socialism actual socialism is like calling the Democratic People's Republic of Korea a democracy.

    North Korea has an elected parliament, so yes, it is a democracy. Technically speaking, that is.
