Hey.
A member of this forum has subsequently made a successful Youtube history channel.  He started off making Close Combat videos but now tackles deep WW2 topics.

Anyway, I would like to share this Reddit thread.
Reddit Tik discussion
What do you think?
Please ignore the more hostile comments that attack him and try to get to the root of the argument.
Initially, I thought TIK made a compelling argument for the Nazis being socialist but now I'm a bit more sceptical. I would love to know more about his political opinions.
I think he is viewing this from a very American libertarian perspective. In America, the right has tried openly to change the meaning of being ''right-wing'' by defining it that ''being on the right'' means being freer.
So with less government intervention and more freedom-oriented policy the country is, therefore, more right-wing.  It does seem like a bit of a leap to label all forms of government planning to be in fact socilism when it kinda ignores some basic socilist sentiments.

I would love to get historians to give an opinion on other videos he has made as he has made some very interesting and hard-hitting videos on WW2. Due to the fact he hasn't written any major books you can't really read any peer reviews as you would normally with a historian.

What do you think of his video and what people are saying here?

Added: I have no idea was this subreddit group is and I think its best to analyze this from the most objective and non-bias viewpoint as possible.

I really liked his Operation Market Garden video, it was incredible. I hope his Stalingrad or Fall Blau "Battlestorm" I think it is called, is as detailed as the Arnhem one. Maybe he could try to knock down the sarcasm a bit in some parts, it feels like he is mocking people and I don't think that is good to alienate subscribers. He is quite objective as far as I have seen, it's just that the famous "british humour" creeps in sometimes and feels a bit condescending.

Reddit is infested with left wingers, so if someone dares to claim that the Nazis may or may not have had left leaning aspects - then that causes a crisis of confidence in their group identity. If the left wing can be associated with something bad, then it means they aren't perfect - that *they* aren't perfect and therefore cannot sit on high and tell all us plebs what to think, what to do and how awful we all are, because we aren't as pure as they have defined themselves.

Tik had some balls to post a video like that, I don't envy him the shit storm he'd have encountered though because of it.
