    I guess that I have to rephrase that.
    National Socialism led to Hitlers' Germany.
    History has a way of repeating itself.

    I don’t see Germany wanting to do that. Do you have an article you can point to?

    Cyclist also believes in socialism. His head explodes when he is reminded who else were socialists. 
    You don't know what socialism is. You are just parroting ignoramuses.
    Maybe you would like to teach us what socialism is.
    Socialism and capitalism are economic terms.
    Communism and Democracy are political.
    Communism is a economic system just as socialism is too. 
    Both systems have either an dictatorship or an oligarchy government. 
     And we are not a democracy either.

    Nationalism, run amok, led to **** Germany.

     
    This is true but......
    There was more to it than that. Germany was strapped  with debt and the economy was in disarray as a result of WW1. 
    Those conditions sowed the seeds for the racist fervor that followed. It was a perfect storm and Adolf **** was very timely and somewhat lucky in his climb to power.
     At that time the political system was splintered and fragile. It was more racism.....(The Aryan race) then nationalism that brought the National Socialist Workers Party to power.
    Arguing with idiots is like playing chess with a pigeon... No matter how good you are, the bird is going to crap on the board and strut around like it won anyway.
