A two parter.

1 - What national political party ran on this platform?

2 - Is this a statist/leftist agenda or a libertarian/rightist agenda?

<div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body">We demand that the State shall make it its primary duty to provide a livelihood for its citizens. ...

We demand therefore:

The abolition of incomes unearned by work. ...

We demand therefore the ruthless confiscation of all war profits.

We demand the nationalization of all businesses which have been formed into corporations.

We demand profit-sharing in large industrial enterprises.

We demand the extensive development of insurance for old age.

We demand a land reform suitable to our national requirements, the passing of a law for the expropriation of land for communal purposes without compensation; the abolition of ground rent, and the prohibition of all speculation in land. *

We demand the ruthless prosecution of those whose activities are injurious to the common interest. Common criminals, usurers, profiteers, etc., must be punished with death, whatever their creed or race.

20. The State must consider a thorough reconstruction of our national system of education (with the aim of opening up to every able and hard-working XXXXXX the possibility of higher education and of thus obtaining advancement). The curricula of all educational establishments must be brought into line with the requirements of practical life. The aim of the school must be to give the pupil, beginning with the first sign of intelligence, a grasp of the nation of the State (through the study of civic affairs). We demand the education of gifted children of poor parents, whatever their class or occupation, at the expense of the State.

The State must ensure that the nation's health standards are raised by protecting mothers and infants, by prohibiting child labor, by promoting physical strength through legislation providing for compulsory gymnastics and sports, and by the extensive support of clubs engaged in the physical training of youth.

We demand the abolition of the mercenary army and the foundation of a people's army.

The publishing of papers which are not conducive to the national welfare must be forbidden. We demand the legal prosecution of all those tendencies in art and literature which corrupt our national life, and the suppression of cultural events which violate this demand.

We demand freedom for all religious denominations in the State, provided they do not threaten its existence .

To put the whole of this programme into effect, we demand the creation of a strong central state power for XXXXXXXXX; the unconditional authority of the political central Parliament over XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX and its organizations; and the formation of Corporations based on estate and occupation for the purpose of carrying out the general legislation passed by the XXXXX in the various XXXXXX states.

The leaders of the Party promise to work ruthlessly -- if need be to sacrifice their very lives -- to translate this programme into action.</div></div>

Close enough.

It was the National Socialist German Worker's Party.

They ran as socialists ... on a socialist platform ... with a socialist agenda ... advocating a platform which largely mirrors the democrooks of today.

But, according to Q and Gee, seeing them as leftists simply because they were the most far left state in Europe within the last century is "OUT THERE!"

You got it.

Hitler was a leftist.

The communists wanted the state to takeover production and socialize both risk and reward.

Hitler/Mussolini got the industrialists to back them with the idea that big business was "TOO BIG TO FAIL" and instituted a fascist economy where risk and loss were socialized and guaranteed to be covered by the citizenry if things went bad ... while privatizing profits.

Sound familiar to anyone else's economic policy?

I'm staggered by realizing the amount of doublethink required to give that answer stretch.
