The discussion of the actual politics of Weimar in this is important.
The real backers of the National Socialists were the managerial classes and ideas industries of Weimar, in collusion with sectors of the industrial class and the military, in the same way our educated elites, tech-oligarchs, and deep state are largely on the same team. The Trumpists have more in common with the Communists of Weimar than the Nazis. Economic populism is the closest Americans are ever going to get to communism, lol.
Michael Lind, author of Land of Promise, wonders if democracy can be saved from the “managerial elite,” and points to ideas from his book The New Class War.
