    I agree completely with this. Thing is, I don't one hundred percent agree with the term "Nazism" as being a thing. The Nazi Party was one governing force that took control of several others and allied itself with the axis powers, it was a nation or an empire not a belief. In fact, not all German soldiers were even members of the Nazi Party and those who were often didn't know about the horrifying truth of the concentration camps. Whereas Communism is a political theory that was hated by multiple governments. So the only argument one has I assume is comparing the ideology of the high ranking Nazis to Communism in general? Which is in fact a pointless argument, being there are many factors to Communism and not every communist country was looking to kill its people. That's why the title of this thread is misleading (being Nazism is a term created by Neo-Nazi weirdos that worship a society as if it was a religion, and communism in theory can be good like @Expanix said), it should really be comparing two nations (Germany vs USSR) and perhaps even break it down further into Hitler vs. Stalin. In that case, I'd say Stalin morally was a worse person and leader being he drove Russia into the ground and killed many more millions of his own people instead of Hitler who brought Germany to its heights.

    I'll say right off the bat that I dislike a lot of the stuff PragerU puts out nowadays, it seems that they're beginning to cater towards people that watch sjw rekt compilations more and more. They have some nice videos but some of them just seem a bit like they're trying to please the people that regularly watch them and they rarely provide them with differing opinions to conservatism.

    The first point they make is that you never see people describe others as communist you only ever see fascist etc. Most of the time that's the case because they're trying to get across the fact that they person they're insulting is being in some way 'authoritarian'. And most people don't associate the word communism with direct rule.

    ?

    On the Internet people throw Hitler and shit around a lot because they're dumb kids or just dumb, but in the real world I hear socialists and national socialists called commies every some often because of their views. In fact there are more similarities between policies you might associate with communism and polices associated with Fascism than you might expect. It's just that kids and and people online favour Hitler over Mao the war that the Allies fought against them had real effects on them and the systematic genocide displaced a large amount of people that fled to the U.S etc. Whereas the internal mass murders inside China and Russia didn't have nearly the social effect or ordinary people.
