Well.. Adolf Hitler actually felt that national socialism (maybe more known as
nazism) was "marxism done right", and among his plans for things to do after
he had won the war (WWII) was to "nationalize" all companies, since the State
ownership was the correct procedure. He said these things during his talk with
his closer associates in the Wolfschanze during WWII. The difference between
``socialism'' (as in China, North Korea, SSSR and the other Warsaw pact states)
and ``nazism'' (aka national socialism) are mostly irrelevant, IMO.
