Right Wing/Left Wing
16 September 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

lancetb1349: You use the term "right wing" in reference to conservative politics in the United States, not conservative politics around the world and in a different time period. The extreme conservative policies of Nazi Germany are not comparable to the conservative policies in the present day United States. The same is true of liberalism. Therefore, it is a fallacy to describe things like Nazism with a word pertaining to U.S. politics. In addition, you fail to recognize the different aspects of each position: economic, social, philosophical, etc. Both right and left wing groups of the thirties consisted of ideals which were in some ways similar to each other, such as totalitarian dictatorship, and oppression of dissident and ethnic groups. Watch this documentary for its historical value, not an invalid superimposition of present day politics. It offers insights into a little understood period in the development of Nazism.
