Nazi (German) was short for Nationalsozialist, a member of the National Socialist German Workers Party, led to power by Adolf Hitler. Also used as an adjective to signify a connection with the Nazi Party or its policies. Hitler based his absolute dictatorship upon central planning, "Socialism of the German pattern", and his popularity upon appeals to nationalism, anti-Semitism and anticapitalism. The Nazis, under Hitler, ruled Germany from 1933 to the end of World War II in 1945.

For the Nazi ideology see Omnipotent Government, pages 222-23. According to Mises the Nazi dogmas were those of present-day (1944) "'unorthodox' orthodoxy," which Fabians and Keynesians were unable to refute. [1]
