What defines Nazism?
May 4, 2008 1:56pm CST
Nazism as some academics claim is distiguished by racism. In the case of Nazism racism is defined by antisemitism and the idea of a pure German race of Arians. Nazism as shaped by the likes of Adolf Hitler academics claim is NOT fascim. Hitler merely adopted fascisist traits such as that of the anciant Roman solute used by Itlaian dictator Mussolini, and his programme of social works as a guise to build an Arian society.

Nizism origanally was the short form for the political name of Hitlers party. when first instituted,it was a very good system as it brought Germany out of total destitution,antisemitizm,as anyone that studies history will tell you,has existed as long as the Jewish religion has been alive,and not just by Germany,but he did take it to the extreme,and you must also know,that the Jew's were not the only people or race the nazi's tried to destroy. Also,he was not the one that originally use the swastika,this emblem is over 4000 years old and is classed as a good luck and religious sign in many counties in the middle east. Now,before you start calling me one,I am Canadian and had many family members in the war against Germany,and my Father was at Dieppe.I was military myself and now sell many relicks of this war as well as others.

very true,but he did worn the world of what he was going to do,they just did not beleive him,he did this in 1922. in the beginning he was great for the German people,but as he got sicker,and the bunch behind him kept telling him what to do,(letting him think it was his idea,which in many cases was the truth),it did cost the people of Germany and the rest of the world a terrible price. I am not condoning what he did by any means,but to put it into prospective,we were as much at fault by not listening when he told us.
