    the great thing about the nazis were they were what ever you needed them to be. Hence the endless number of contradictory statements from the Fuhrer on what he actually was and represented, politically and religiously

    The fact that this argument is as intractable as it is, shows how painfully useless the Left-Right spectrum (a system meant to elucidate one's political position) really is. To put Nazism on the same side of the spectrum as anarcho-communists (or on the right with minarchist libertarians for that matter) shows that attempts to call Nazism "left-wing" or "right-wing" is futile. Nazism and Fascism have simply become catch-all terms for political views that we don't like. The Nazis did institute many traditionally social democratic policies, but they also did promote many things traditionally seen as conservative such as nationalism and support for propertied interests. Things are complicated even more by the fact that the Nazis were never a homogeneous group. Before Hitler fully consolidated his power, there were various factions of the Nazi Party, including ones that did really take the "socialist" in "National Socialist" to heart, but they were purged in the Night of the Long Knives. It's important to understand the Nazis, and I am just as loath to calling them "right-wing" as I am to calling them "left-wing." However, simply trying to fit them into this or that category muddles their true history and any attempt to understand them or their rise to power.

    I'm gonna go with Nazis.

    You can at least cross paths with a nice communist. However, the words nice and Nazi never belong in the same sentence.

    Communism is worse. It's killed more people by far.

    Nonsense.

    Is North Korea Conservative?

    Is there a more nationalistic place in the world?

    Hitler HATED the wealthy land owners in Germany, as well..........

    Your chances of survival in a run of the mill Communist regime are much higher than under the Third Reich. The choice is obvious.

    If the choice was between a Fascist regime and a Communist one I'd pick run of the mill Fascist. I'd wager life being better, easier, and more survivable in Spain, Italy, or Greece, than most of the counter examples.

    No, there is no option for both. You may indeed hate both like me and probably everyone here, but which do you dislike more. If you cannot decide there is always rootabega.
