I came across a reference to this material in an article discussing a WAPO fact check. The question at hand was whether the Nazi Party could be legitimately described as socialist. The writer felt that the party platform contained a number of decidedly socialist provisions (particularly planks 13, 14, and 17), but I was struck by the numerous intersections with contemporary left-wing dogmas in the U.S. One such intersection occurs in plank 23c:
“The publishing of [news]papers which are not conducive to the national welfare must be forbidden. We demand the legal prosecution of all those tendencies in art and literature which corrupt our national life, and the suppression of cultural events which violate this demand.”
This plank of the Nazi political platform sounds to me just like the proposition that ideas can be dangerous to society; just like the proposition that censorship can be acceptable based on the public interest.
I bring this up to shame those who think like Nazis did.
