I am curious about the reason why they were banned.


Or maybe just maybe that is some really fucking dumbass backwards reasoning.

Most of the socialist structures that existed during Nazi Germany were enacted by Otto von Bismarck in the 1870s and still exist today. The Nazis just called themselves “socialist”, because they didn’t want to call themselves “the bad guys”.

And the strategies of the Nazis would still work perfectly fine in “raw” capitalism. You just need the general population to be poor and then repeatedly tell them that this is the fault of the Jews/Mexicans/Syrians etc…

In fact, I would say that a socialist system helps to prevent this type of propaganda acceptance, a.k.a. poorness. In Nazi Germany, it worked anyways, because the general population was just really fucking poor after WWI and the stock market crash in 1929.
