“And how we burned in the camps later, thinking: What would things have been like if every Security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive and had to say good-bye to his family? Or if, during periods of mass arrests, as for example in Leningrad, when they arrested a quarter of the entire city, people had not simply sat there in their lairs, paling with terror at every bang of the downstairs door and at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing left to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes, hammers, pokers, or whatever else was at hand?… The Organs would very quickly have suffered a shortage of officers and transport and, notwithstanding all of Stalin’s thirst, the cursed machine would have ground to a halt! If…if…We didn’t love freedom enough. And even more – we had no awareness of the real situation…. We purely and simply deserved everything that happened afterward.”

Standard “utopian” socialism : common control of the means of production.
Marxist Socialism : class control of the means of production.
National Socialism : race control of the means of production.
Fascism : nationality control of the means of production.
Markets : people, individuals. [A market is two people who trade. So do you want to have “Free Markets”/free people, or “planned economy”/non-free people?]
Means of production : people, individuals. [A factory/building/tool cannot operate without a human, so humans are the means of production. Therefore do you want to control your own life, or have someone else control it?]
Capitalism : private control of the means of production. [private individual (you) control over your own life]
Classic Liberalism : people are individuals and should be judged as such. Freedom of speech, equal rights, and people are free to do as they please (spend their money the way they want).
Notice how the Left will change the terms of those above to hide the meaning of following –
Standard “Utopian” socialism : common-control of the means of production. [a group / other people / another authority controls your life – you’re no longer free. You are not allowed to own property, and your possessions, money and lives are not your own.]
Marxist Socialism : class-control of the means of production. [the “workers” unions are in control, anyone else should be enslaved and murdered]
National Socialism : race-control of the means of production. [the “Aryan” race should be in control, everyone else should be enslaved and murdered]
Fascism : nationality-control of the means of production. [e.g. the “Americans” (nationality, not race) should be in control, everyone else should be enslaved and murdered]
Some random Leftist terms that don’t make sense –
State Capitalism : a contradiction in terms, since you cannot have non-free free individuals. Either the individual is free, or is controlled by the state. Capitalism is freedom from the state, so you cannot have state-controlled free-people.
Anarcho-syndicalism : a contradiction in terms, since if you have workers unions (or federalism etc) you cannot also have anarchy at the same time. This is actually based on a deliberate postmodernist revision and misquotation of Das Kapital Volume 3 (and yes, I checked the original German).
Clearly, socialism is built on both killing and enslavement, no matter which form it is. Enslavement and killing are fundamental to the very core ideology itself, which is that some people should be excluded from society because they are part of a social group that another social group doesn’t like.
Totalitarianism requires total control of the people, in terms of politics, society and economy. You cannot have totalitarianism without a dictator who is in control of the people/economy. And since capitalism is non-control of the people/economy, then if Hitler is capitalist, he cannot be a totalitarian. If Hitler is totalitarian, that must mean he has an economic policy that controls the people/economy. Since socialism is control of the people/economy, it makes sense for him to be labeled a socialist.
However, the counter-argument is made that Hitler “privatized” the industries, proving his capitalism. Ok, well now we have a problem. Either he did “privatize” the industries and wasn’t a totalitarian dictator, or he was a totalitarian dictator and something is wrong with the narrative being pushed by Marxists about Hitler’s “privatization” policy.
Turns out there’s something wrong with the Marxist narrative, and I’m going to set the record straight in a future video.
