>>735774>nope. Right wing is about individualism. Leftwing is about collectivism
Yes, but Hitler's movement was exclusionary, not inclusionary, that's why it was right, and not left. Left movements attempt to fold everyone into their hivemind (we're all equals), right movements define themselves by who and what they are excluding (we're better than everyone). Even if it tends to be snakeoil lies in either case.>false, the left wing is based on state control of the people and the markets
He left the industry in private hands, he had a capitalist economy, the rich stayed rich - cartels and monopolies were encouraged - the only regulation being they didn't do anything that fell outside of the dictated morality. That's exactly why Europe let him have so much rope to hang himself with - he was a counter balance to the Stalinists, where the state directly owned everything. The rich and powerful of the EU preferred Auth-Right to Auth-Left.>you keep saying he was a good person and a good president
I said that there are many that consider him a good president, indeed, the best president, and he was exceedingly popular at the time. I could say much the same of Hitler, if not, to this day.
...and I said if FDR was in Hitler's position, we might have seen much the same from him, but not every bit of policy each man implemented was wrong, and it's ignorance grounded in emotion to say it was. They both just did some unforgivable things.
Though I would probably roll back that from "worst blight since the founding" to "worst blight since the civil war", though that's harder to pin on one person, so much as decades of neglect. (Sherman though, yeesh.)
