Nazi Party Program Analysis (2)

We demand land and territory (colonies) for the sustenance of our people and colonization for our surplus population.

The Lebensraum (“living space”) principle. Predatory, ruthless colonialism – plain and simple. The driving force behind this principle was obvious – to make sure that the horrors of the Blockade of Germany that killed half a million Germans will never happened again.

Apparently, Nazis did not know (and did not want to know) that they could feed German population by radically increasing the efficiency of their agriculture – and thus did not really need the colonies – in the East, West, North or South.

This demand (that was anything but noble and did not make much sense) quickly led to the occupation of the whole Czechoslovakia, invasion of Poland and of the Soviet Union and so triggered the Second Great War that ultimately killed the Third Reich, its Führer, thousands of Nazi officials and millions of Germans. And led to the unprecedented destruction of Germany.

Only a member of the [German] race can be a citizen [of Germany]. A member of the race can only be one who is of German blood, without consideration of creed. Consequently, no Jew can be a member of the race.

Racism, plain and simple (with some heavy Judeophobia thrown in for good measure). Not surprisingly, it very quickly led to large-scale comprehensive persecution of Jews and ultimately to the Holocaust.

“It was worse than a crime – it was colossal a blunder”. Nazis would have been much better of had they stated that “only a member of the German culture can be a citizen”. Which automatically included all residents of Germany that were of German blood but also allowed assimilated Jews and individuals of other nationalities to become German citizens.

Whoever has no citizenship is to be able to live in Germany only as a guest and must be under the authority of legislation for foreigners.

A natural continuation of the previous point (demand/statement).
