  • A Nazi is someone who believes in the ideologies of the Nazi party. They're socialists, racists, anti-semites, white supremacists (they believe everyone else is inferior to whites such as Germanics and Nordics, basically anyone who isn't Aryan), some fucked up thing called "racial hygiene" which relates to euthanasia, they are anti-marxism, anti-communism, anti-bolshevism, they reject democracy, belief in social darwinism and some more.

  • Nazi is the abbreviation for German "Natioalsozialist" (national socialist). National socialism in indeed not something specifically German. It is a special type of fascism (it is similar to fascism but there are also a number of differences).
    Very generally speaking, national socialists embrace an ideology that combines extreme racism and nationalism with a sort of pseudo-socialism (Socialists like myself would not actually call it socialism). The Nazis' idea was to stick closer together as one people and fight against people who did not belong to them (there was a very strong in-group and out-group thinking as you'd call it in psychology). Hitler's party, the NSDAP (Nationalsozialistische Deutsche Arbeiterpartei) incorporated certain elements that could be called socialist, such as the fact that they build the first highways in Germany or that they lowered the unemployment rate drastically. However, as a history student, I have to be very sceptical of these claims. Because many of these things had actually different purposes (for example the highways were mainly built for the army, not to make normal people happy). National socialism can appear anywhere in the world but the German version is still considered very unique. Many people don't know that the Nazis were by far not the only right-extremist dictatorship in the 1930s and 1940s. There were the fascists in Italy, Franco in Spain, Hungary and Bulgaria were right extremist dictatorships etc. Plus there were very strong fascist movements in democratic European countries such as England. Still, Germany's Nazism as it is sometimes called stands out as quite unique and probably also as most radical/extreme version of all those totalitarian regimes.

  • To generalise, they are extreme right wing racialists. Can be anyone from any country. The nazi ideal of the second world war was of a master race, supreme over any other.

  • There are three common features of National Socialism (commonly called Nazism): 1. Anti-Semitism. 2. Admiration of Adolf Hitler and other Nazi Party figures. 3. Opposition to capitalism and communism and democracy.

    Other than that, there is quite a lot of variation. There are even some non-white Nazis!

  • It crosses over into excessive rule making and following, the nazis were fond of trains running exactly on time and people having the correct documents. These days nazis are usually in public service or retail, like traffic cops, various types of inspectors and enforcement officers, bailiffs, customer assistants and retail managers etc.

  • It's an ideology and former political party. It's largely based around fascism and ideas about racial "purity", so any sort of interracial relationship is condemned. There's a lot of hatred toward the Jewish people in particular.
