(Right-winger) in name only. As I'm sure you guys will agree the right left paradigm is a farce, I see liberty as neither R or L it's self governance not a dictate. The nazi's basically used the guise of being right wingers to be seen as an alternative to the socialists and communist competing for control.
Sure the racism nationalism and militarism are generally considered right-wing but look at many communist states they were exactly the same. Some have even engaged in eugenics, North korea shipped short people to off shore islands to prevent them being in the gene pool... I think they had forced abortions on foreign babies too.
This article shows how much a like they Nazism and communism. If the public saw them as what they are. Two branches of the same tree not "opposites that become similar" I feel we'd be better able to understand and resist them.
