    Here was my original statement in post 175 on that issue


    It was created by libertarians for the expressed purpose of charting libertarians to justify the various opinions of libertarians and not place them as rightists on he normal continuum in American political thinking.
    Look at what I said and compare it to what you are claiming I said. If you cannot see the difference, it is time for a class on reading comprehension.

    I like this demonstration of the political relationships. The Nazi's would be the hardcore statists. Oddly enough, a lot of the people who call themselves "left wing" today end up doing less and less in regard to personal issues and more and more towards big government. Lefts used to want the establishment to quit interfereing in their lives - now, they want the government involved in everything.

    That is an interpretation which has as its intent to smear those on the left. Obviously there is one huge gulf between the right and the left regarding their view of the role of government. Those on the left generally view the government as an important ally in achieving a sustainable society for all citizens. Those on the right generally do not see it that way . That does not mean however that those on the left favor what you call Big Government in all things or overreaching to take away ones freedoms and rights.

    For American right-wingers, who are devoid of knowledge of this particular world, nazism is a form of socialism. For everyone else it was the last-ditch defence of capitalism, totally supported by big business, who didn't care how many millions it murdered as long as their profits rolled in.

    Fun little exercise - doubtful accuracy, but the results probably represent me fairly well.

    Why? (The message entered is too short because Americans tend to the long-winded).

    So, Hazlnut, you agree that the Nazis were Socialists?
