What I’m Reading: The Anatomy of Fascism – 38 in a series – “”…the Nazi Party turned to the farmers….”

November 15th, 2019

“Schleswig-Holstein was the only German state (Land) to give the Nazis an outright majority in any free election: it voted 51 percent Nazi in the parliamentary election of July 31, 1932. Hence it offers us an obvious second example of a fascist movement successfully becoming a major political actor.

Having done very poorly with an urban strategy in the elections of 1924 and 1928, the Nazi Party turned to the farmers.33 They chose well. Agriculture had prospered nowhere in the 1920s, because world markets were flooded by new producers”

From The Anatomy of Fascism by Robert O. Paxton
