-- note that the NSDAP was the _National Socialist German Workers Party_.
Nazism is a mutation of _left_ wing politics.
A common misunderstanding, Your Touchiness.
Here it is, straight from the horse's mouth:
" But all that I heard had the effect of arousing the strongest
antagonism in me. Everything was disparaged-the nation, because it
was held to be an invention of the 'capitalist' class (how often I had
heard that phrase!); the Fatherland, because it was held to be an
instrument in the hands of the bourgeosie for the exploitation of the
working masses; the authority of the law, because that was a means of
holding down the proletariat; religion, as a means of doping the
people, so as to exploit them afterward; morality, as a badge of
stupid and sheepish docility. There was nothing that they did not drag
in the mud."
Hitler was for private property and privately run businesses.
"We stand for the maintenance of private property...We shall protect
free enterprise as the most expedient, or rather the sole possible
In a speech delivered to the industrialists in Berlin on 20 February
1933, Hitler stated:
"Private enterprise cannot be maintained in the age of democracy; it
is conceivable only if the people have a sound idea of authority and
Which of course he would provide.

23 March 1933, asking for the adoption of the Enabling Act.]
"While the Government is determined to carry through the political and
moral purging of our public life, it is creating and insuring
prerequisites for a truly religious life. The Government sees in both
Christian confessions the most important factors for the maintenance
of our folkdom. It will respect agreements concluded between them and

It can never condone, though, that belonging to a certain
denomination or to a certain race might be regarded as a license to
tolerate crimes. The Government will devote its care to the sincere
together of Church and State."
Hitler said in a speech in Berlin on March 23, 1933 "The Reich
government sees in Christianity the unshakable foundation of the
ethics and morality of the folk."
On the proper role of women in society:
Goebbels speech on March 18, 1933:
"A fundamental change is necessary. At the risk of sounding
and outdated, let me say this clearly: The first, best, and most
suitable place for the women is in the family, and her most glorious
duty is to give children to her people and nation, children who can
continue the line of generations and who guarantee the immortality of
the nation. The woman is the teacher of the youth, and therefore the
builder of the foundation of the future. If the family is the nation's
source of strength, the woman is its core and center. The best place
for the woman to serve her people is in her marriage, in the family,
in motherhood. This is her highest mission. That does not mean that
those women who are employed or who have no children have no role in
the motherhood of the German people. They use their strength, their
abilities, their sense of responsibility for the nation, in other
ways. We are convinced, however, that the first task of a socially
reformed nation must be to again give the woman the possibility to
fulfill her real task, her mission in the family and as a mother.
The national revolutionary government is everything but reactionary.
It does not want to stop the pace of our rapidly moving age. It has no
intention of lagging behind the times. It wants to be the flag bearer
and pathfinder of the future. We know the demands of the modern age.
But that does not stop us from seeing that every age has its roots in
motherhood, that there is nothing of greater importance than the
living mother of a family who gives the state children.
German women have been transformed in recent years. They are beginning
to see that they are not happier as a result of being given more
rights but fewer duties. They now realize that the right to be elected
to public office at the expense of the right to life, motherhood and
her daily bread is not a good trade."
I trust that the preceeding citations will provide a start in the long
process of improving your somewhat inadequate understanding of the
derivation of Nazi ideology.
