"He championed the rights of workers, regarded capitalist society as brutal and unjust, and sought a third way between communism and the free market. In this regard, he and his associates greatly admired the strong steps taken by President Franklin Roosevelt'­s New Deal to take large-scal­e economic decision-m­aking out of private hands and put it into those of government planning agencies. His aim was to institute a brand of socialism that avoided the inefficien­cies that plagued the Soviet variety, and many former communists found his program highly congenial. He deplored the selfish individual­ism he took to be endemic to modern Western society, and wanted to replace it with an ethic of self-sacri­fice: "As Christ proclaimed 'love one another'," he said, "so our call -- 'people's community,­' 'public need before private greed,' 'communall­y-minded social consciousn­ess' -- rings out.! This call will echo throughout the world!"

and always regarded young people and their idealism as the key to progress and the overcoming of outmoded prejudices. And he was widely admired by the young people of his country, many of whom belonged to organizations devoted to practicing and propagating his teachings. He had a lifelong passion for music, art, and architecture, and was even something of a painter. He rejected what he regarded as petty bourgeois moral hang-ups, and he and his girlfriend "lived together" for years. He counted a number of homosexuals as friends and collaborators, and took the view that a man's personal morals were none of his business; some scholars of his life believe that he himself may have been homosexual or bisexual. He was ahead of his time where a number of contemporary progressive causes are concerned: he disliked smoking, regarding it as a serious danger to public health, and took steps to combat it; he was a vegetarian and animal lover; he enacted tough gun control laws;

is it this guy?

yep, it's Hitler.


Once again had a discussion on another forum on whether Fascism was right or left of centre on the political spectrum.

They guy started talking about Hitler and I came across this quote, so I thought I'd let him know.
