"During the '20s, Carnegie Institution eugenic scientists cultivated deep personal and professional relationships with Germany's fascist eugenicists. In Mein Kampf, published in 1924, Hitler quoted American eugenic ideology and openly displayed a thorough knowledge of American eugenics. "There is today one state," wrote Hitler, "in which at least weak beginnings toward a better conception [of immigration] are noticeable. Of course, it is not our model German Republic, but the United States."

Hitler proudly told his comrades just how closely he followed the progress of the American eugenics movement. "I have studied with great interest," he told a fellow Nazi, "the laws of several American states concerning prevention of reproduction by people whose progeny would, in all probability, be of no value or be injurious to the racial stock."

Hitler even wrote a fan letter to American eugenic leader Madison Grant calling his race-based eugenics book, The Passing of the Great Race his "bible."
You did not address this you ignored it.


I will address it right now for you as best I can.
Agreed. You're right.
It doesn't have anything to do with the fact that Herr Hitler implemented it via an autocratic right wing fascist authoritarian dictatorship.

The hierarchy in the Third Reich was, as Rick pointed out, top-down, not egalitarian, not horizontal.

You argued previously about the wealthy industrialists who were so tightly controlled by the Reich that the government "might as well have owned the industries".

This is hair splitting in comparison to the difference between the privatized wealth of industry under fascism and the barenaked cold reality of nationalized communist state control OWNERSHIP.

German cars, under both liberal left wing and authoritarian right wing administrations, were opulent, luxurious, well engineered.
Soviet cars (and Communist Eastern bloc cars in general) are cursed with being dour, grey, handicapped by tepid, almost sullen performance, and built of substandard materials fitted together with all the pride and flair of a mollusk laying eggs.

The difference is between regulated free market, fascist cartel, and state ownership. The first two allow at least for some entreprenurial craft and profit. The latter (communism) makes no such allowance.
