Do you remember how Hitler won?
Though the core of the Nazi ideology was fascism, antisemitism, a leader cult and the desctruction of the rule of law, he won over most citizen by promising better livelihoods, more jobs... things that mattered in the everyday life of the common German citizen.
As Clinton says, " It's the economy, stupid! "
I learnt in school that people were frustrated over Versailles...
Hitler's election results in the 1920s rubbishes this teaching. However I never learned in school about Gottfried Feder.
Even before the Great Recession Gottfried Feder, economic expert of the party, demanded to dismiss the gold standard, deficit spending and zero interest for people who build their house. In short, today's policy. Antisemitism was widespread at the time, not only in Germany. Who knew how serious to take it?
I believe voting for Hitler was a reasonable thing to do for an unemployed family man.
By the way:
At the core of Nazi ideology was socialism. Hitler the traitor had to get rid of Roehm and his men to get support from the ruling classes. I still wonder that nobody within the party killed Hitler for his betrayal.
