Which just goes to so your damn well political ignorance.

Right Wing = Defence of Hierarchy, Elitism and Natural Elite Theory, Slavish Trust In Competition, Survival Of The Fitest, Traditionalism In The Fields Of Family, Gender Relations, Sexuality and Religion, Punishment Rather Than Correction, Nationalism and Patriotism, Anti-intellectualism etc. etc.

These could be the values of any 'up right American right winger or conservative' they are also the values of the Third Reich, they where not and never will be, ever, the values of the left.

Dont confuse or re-write the political spectrum as it pleases you, it is no substitute for real debate. The criticism of the right that you suggested socialists carry out, likeing all it believes in to brutality and murder, sounds like a more fitting criticism of the right wing thoerists and historical revisionists like you.

I'm not trying to revise the fact that Hitler championed competition in the economy over the suggestions of Strasser that the economy be nationalised, in the end executing Strasser for his disobediant 'communism', are you?
