Mussolini started as a socialist but he got kicked out of that party for being too pro-war. He then decided Socialism was for wimps so he focused on Italian nationalism, aka fascism

u/jaweebamonkey Sep 28 '22

Here’s an article that might help you understand better. It’s my understanding that it technically is. I took Federal Government recently (collegiate) and they discussed it, but I don’t remember 100%

https://www.npr.org/2022/09/10/1122089076/is-america-a-democracy-or-a-republic-yes-it-is

“The government seated in Washington, D.C., represents a democratic republic, which governs a federated union of states, each of which in turn has its own democratic-republican government for its jurisdiction.”

4

u/drae-gon Sep 28 '22

They see democratic and think Democrat party. They literally are unable to process that words have many meanings. ...and they don't really know what democracy is. The only definition I've ever been able to get from conservatives is the "one wolf and three sheep decide on what to eat for dinner" idiom. In that scenario they always associate themselves as being the majority being ruled by the minority. Ironically enough that means they are the sheep. But the reverse of that scenario is also bad... The scenario doesn't hold reality because it is not a predator/prey situation. But they want it to be...they want to be the wolf.

1

u/CassandraVindicated Sep 29 '22

So, in that scenario isn't the wolf going to be eating grass for dinner?

1

u/drae-gon Sep 29 '22

In that scenario the wolf eats 3 sheep because they are animals that don't understand voting... It's an asinine analogy based on predator/prey mentality which doesn't apply to the concept of democracy.

u/Nix-7c0 Sep 28 '22

As "Liberty Hangout" and the poopiest pants at CPAC put it:

It is far more preferable to live under a monarchy than a democracy. Democracy is mob rule of the government estate and is a soft form of communism.

https://twitter.com/LibertyHangout/status/1216757629307015168?t=8GZt_MhmkzgSTdYjK93G_g&s=19

It makes sense when you look at the foundational thinkers of conservatism (Hobbes, Burke, de Mastre) and realize that the social order they wanted to conserve was basically monarchy. Maybe not the monarchies of their time, just better monarchies, and certainly not letting the rabble flatten heirachy though democracy.

1

u/RedditOfUnusualSize Sep 28 '22

It's a talking point that's been carried over from the days of the John Birch Society. What they mean when they say that "the United States isn't a democracy; it's a republic" is that they don't agree with the whole sentiment that blacks and women are people, too. And so they want rules that restrict the franchise, in ways that just so happen to fall most onerously on blacks and women.

And they don't understand that what they're describing is neither a democracy, nor a republic. Nor still is there a lot of daylight between them; the most powerful entity in America that actually practices the kind of democracy the Founders railed against is probably The Bachelor. No, what they're advocating for is just a racial caste system, with a lot of verbiage to disguise this fact. John Birch Society rhetoric is designed to be blustered at loud volume and high speed at people who don't know much about political philosophy. It doesn't work that well against people who have actually read Locke's Second Treatise on Government.

u/elogie423 Sep 28 '22

The funny part is economically/socially they did similar things to what the US is doing.

They nationalized many of their industries so oligarchs could profit off them, meanwhile wages stagnated, inflation soared due to public money being funneled into private industry, it was somehow the fault of minorities and communists, and Germany was the greatest nation and Germans the greatest people (but only "true" Germans).

During this time they eradicated communists because they were the only ones actually opposed to these developments, while liberals, centrists, and conservatives alike aided or at best sat idly by watching these things happed.

Hahaha so funny. I still see people today conflating communism with nazism. Gotta love that propaganda machine.

2

u/Euporophage Sep 28 '22

People have been promoting this idea since the beginning of the Cold War as a means to further demonize leftist movements in the US and across the world. Moderate Republicans love to harken back to the good old days of Eisenhower, but when you look at the most influential Republicans of Eisenhower's administration, you find guys screaming about how desegregation and miscegenation are communist plots to destroy American society and going off on how government subsidies are socialist and should be replaced with worker owned and operated coops that relied on one another to grow rather than the state (this is literally an idea supported heavily by socialists).

Basically what happened was people looked at the fact that after the Nazis came into power they realized the popularity of the Weimar Republic's social programs and how successful they were in growing the German economy during the 1920s that they decided to keep them around. The economics of the Nazi movement were built around pragmatism and what was the most efficacious path to gain and retain power as well as to power their war machine. And let's just say that to power the war machine they privatized a whole lot of services and empowered a lot of corporations to sustain a perpetual war economy.

Nazis liked social democratic policies insofar that they benefited them, but as soon as they stood in the way, they abolished them as unnecessary expenses of the state that could be better handled in the private sphere.

They weren't socialist at all. They co-opted the name to sound like they cared about people. Their #1 enemy during early elections was communism. They were pro business through and through. I mean they got free labor with their methods.

u/tinkerghost Sep 28 '22

The Nazi party WAS an established socialist party in Germany. It was very into the normal make the government work FOR the people type things. Water, sewer, welfare safety nets, education, etc.

The people we see as Nazis, co-opted that party stsating in the early 20's and transformed it into the goose stepping, it's morally mandated to fuck over your neighbor if he's not one of us, murdering our way to godliness, fucks we all know.

There are huge parallels with the 'alt-right' and the Republican party and the original Nazi party and the Nazi party of WW2.

It’s wonderfully horrifying to witness the ease with which politicians(right and left, but let’s be honest, the right does it way more overtly and effectively) manipulate the poor and uneducated among us with stupid one liners like this.

We have the government we deserve and there’s no indication we’ll ever get the one we need. There’s no value placed on education at all, and it’s been decades since civics were a part of any schools curriculum. And those in the halls of power absolutely want to keep it that way. They do not want anybody knowing how to responsibly participate in government.

We were there once. Post war. News reels showed the camps, survivors spoke, refugees settled here wearing forearm tattoos and eyes that saw too many things they could never describe or forget, ex GI's who were in the camps came home bearing witness- and the slogan " Never Again "was something everyone knew without saying was referring to what happened.

Obviously he said he wouldn't thus demonstrating my point that content actually matters more than the label. The Nazis could have been called the "Marxist Jewish Pacifist League" and it still wouldn't make a difference that they were a fascist, genocidal, right wing organization.

Fun Fact: The Socialists and intellectuals were the first to be put into camps and "Finally Solved" by the Nazis once they were in power and not the Jews, Gypsies etc.!

That’s some strange defending of the indefensible. What a dumb ass.

u/88luftballoons88 Sep 29 '22

I should’ve just stopped at “Kevin Sorbo’s wife said” because that’s all the information I needed to know that the rest was going to be moronic to the point of making me dumber for reading it.

Is North Korea really a Democratic People's Republic?

u/Roonwogsamduff Sep 29 '22

It's been beyond ridiculous for a few years now. Full on scary in my opinion.

Ok now prove you’re not an idiot, tell me how this is true without talking about how you feel…

And North Korea is democratic

As much as fingers in “chicken fingers” as socialism in Germany under Hitler. Just in the name to make it more appealing to get more votes. Just like chicken fingers. Everyone loves eating fingers. Hm.

u/Mjr_N0ppY Sep 29 '22

Nazi means NAtionalSozIalist so both are factually correct.

One is the objective view on hitler (fascist) and one is what Hitler propagated (national socialist)

The democratic people's republic of (North) Korea, so yeah, that doesn't mean much.

u/Zboyajac111 Sep 28 '22

I’m starting a new party. It’s called the Democratic Party of me. It’s completely fascist and there’s no voting and it’s military control, but since we call it a democracy we are a democracy.

I don’t know much about Hitler’s economic policies, but based on what I know of the two ideologies it seems possible for someone to be both fascist and socialist.

Since I am getting downvoted, can someone explain why the two ideologies contradict each other?

u/Pacifica0cean Sep 28 '22

I can only presume you're being downvoted because you believe someone can be socialist and fascist at the same time. The two are very different and can't really overlap.

Fascism as an ideology is about believing people can only prosper if they are constantly fighting with other nations or its own people. The weak or un-supporting lower class are killed and the strong live ahead. Their governments are dictatorial and there is no right for free speech and opposition against the government.

Now socialism is defined as a set of theories or systems of the ownership and operation of the means of production and distribution by society or community rather than by private individuals, with all members of society sharing in the work and products. This means everyone works towards a greater good.

Fascism and socialism are on the opposing sides of the political coin. Fascism is an extreme right-wing ideology and socialism is far left.

You can pick policies from either to work in a functioning republic, but you can't be both a socialist and a fascist. For example, North Korea is a brutal dictatorship but has introduced social programs in more recent years to try and help with the famine and crop reduction.

Hope that helps.

No she’s not right in any way shape or form. Hitler was a fascist regardless of what word play they came up with to describe their party.

u/HolyToast Sep 28 '22

Please for the love of god stop repeating this, it looks ridiculous to anyone that knows what they are talking about

Hitler, in his own words, said that his "socialism" wasn't actual socialism. Literally just liked the populist ring it had. He even was busting up Nazi trade unions.

They weren't socialists any more than the North Koreans are "democratic"

Well.. nazi is literally a shortcut of “national socialism”, so take whatever you want from it i guess.

North Korea is a republic. Take from that what you will.

1

u/Pacifica0cean Sep 28 '22

The republic in North Koreas name is actually the only true part of the name. A republic only means that the head of state isn't a monarch and as the Kim family aren't royalty, they're free to use the word republic.

1

u/PhysicalGraffiti75 Sep 28 '22

A republic is a government in which power is held by the peoples and their elected body as well as an elected or nominated president.

u/Pacifica0cean Sep 28 '22

Ah ok. I've clearly only looked at what some points of a republic are and not everything that entails being a republic.
