  •  Fascism As Sexual Hysteria (3+ / 0-)
    Recommended by:

    Hitler was all for censorship and stamping out eroticism. And the Nuremberg laws were largely the federal government regulating the sex lives of German citizens.  Psychoanalyst Wilhelm Reich ("The Mass Pstcychology of Fascism") largely described Nazism in terms of sexual hysteria, and one of National Socialism's main attractions to rural Christians was their promise to save the Fatherland from sexual anarchy.

      Did Reich have an explanation for why so many higher-level Nazis were gay?

      And what did the rural Christians think about the encouragement given by the Nazis to single girls to go ahead and get pregnant, because the Reich needed another generation of young men to fight wars?

      •  The Usual Stages Of Revolution And Purification (0+ / 0-)

        Up until 1934, the party focused on scapegoats while pandering 24/7 to the Christian parties including the antisemitic rural parties and the large Center (Catholic) party.

        In 1934, the party was purified in the bloody purge of The Night Of The Long Knives, where the "socialists" and accused homosexuals were killed.

        In 1936-1938 the Nazis kicked the Christian churches to the curb (but did not actually burn them down or anything) with their pagan Faith movement, censorship, and the fertility summer camps.
