Goebbels versus "Priests and Tsars"

Few persistent misconceptions are more irritating for real right-wingers (that is, reactionary monarchists) than the canard that the Nazis were "right-wing," that is, just sort of a more extreme version of the Tories. Daniel Hannan, with whom I strongly disagree on the English Civil War but who is correct about a lot of other things, sets the record straight:

"On 16 June 1941, as Hitler readied his forces for Operation Barbarossa, Josef Goebbels looked forward to the new order that the Nazis would impose on a conquered Russia. There would be no come-back, he wrote, for capitalists nor priests nor Tsars. Rather, in the place of debased, Jewish Bolshevism, the Wehrmacht would deliver “der echte Sozialismus”: real socialism."

A come-back for Priests and Tsars, of course, is exactly what all genuine right-wingers would demand for Russia! Accept no substitutes. Nazism, like all modern political evils, was basically a perversion of Leftism, as the great Erik von Kuehnelt-Leddihn long argued. The only true Right is the Right of Altar and Throne. There has been no legitimate German government since November 1918 and no legitimate Russian government since March 1917. Down with all republican regimes, "Right" or Left! Christian Monarchy Forever!!!

I've come to conclude that Nazism's historical narrative is akin to the Marxist historical narrative, only it substitutes ethnicities for classes in dubbing some peoples "elect" and others "reprobates"--and in so doing corrects an internal inconsistency in Marxism by not pretending to support egalitarianism (except perhaps within ethnicities).

Monarchism teaches that in this life there are no set, fixed, unchanging elect or reprobates--that's decided after this life and is based on our hearts and deeds, not on biology or class or anything fixed and impossible to change in this life.
