Not to be confused with Stransserism.

"We National Socialists want the economic revolution involving the nationalization of the economy...We want in place of an exploitative capitalist economic system a real socialism, maintained not by a soulless Jewish-materialist outlook but by the believing, sacrificial, and unselfish old German community sentiment, community purpose and economic feeling. We want the social revolution in order to bring about the national revolution."

Strasserism is an authoritarian (but usually anti-totalitarian) and culturally far-right ball, toward the left side of the economic axis. While not as far left as Nazbol, he supports a socialist economy with strong worker's rights, and is anti-capitalist believing that markets are dominated by those he deems "inferior". He holds anti-semitic and generally racist and "ethnocentric" views, much like but, to an overall lesser degree to Nazism, and enforces these with an authoritarian government.

Strasserism varies on being as expansionist and genocidal as National Socialism or favouring a "nationalists of the world unite" approach and favouring everyone's right to a national (worker's) homeland. However, the original proposal put forth by the Strassers, as opposed to the extreme expansionism of the Nazis, was the creation of a United States of Europe, with such proposals as a universal currency and abolition of border checks. The goal of this was to strike a balance between chauvinism of regional identities and the sense of belonging to a greater European civilization.

Strasserism often views bourgeois Jews as less than themselves for more economic reasons than on a racial hierarchy.

Beliefs

Strasserism is a political current that originated within the Nazi Party in Germany during the 1920s. Its main proponents were the brothers Gregor Strasser and Otto Strasser, who had significant ideological differences with Adolf Hitler and his more conservative wing of the party. Although Strasserism never became the dominant faction within the Nazi Party, its beliefs are worthy of analysis.

The beliefs of Strasserism include:

  • Anti-capitalism: Strasserists were critical of capitalism and viewed the capitalist economic system as exploitative and harmful to the majority of the population. They advocated for the nationalization of major industries and resources to ensure they were under state control and in the service of the people's welfare.
  • Anti-Semitism: Although they shared some ideological similarities with the more conservative wing of the Nazi Party, Strasserists were known for their less radical stance on anti-Semitism. While they accepted certain anti-Semitic elements, they did not embrace the persecution and hatred of Jews to the same extent as Hitler and his more radical followers.
  • Nationalism and anti-imperialism: Strasserists advocated for a strong German nationalism and opposed what they saw as Germany's submission to foreign interests, especially during the interwar period after World War I. They also opposed the Treaty of Versailles and the League of Nations.
  • National socialism: Strasserists promoted the idea of "national socialism" that combined elements of socialism with nationalism. Their goal was to create a society in which the state played a central role in the economy to protect workers and ensure social equality.
  • Rejection of the aristocracy and big industry: Strasserists distrusted the aristocracy and large industrial corporations, viewing them as forces that perpetuated exploitation and the power of economic elites. They advocated for the creation of a more equitable system in which the state regulated the economy and protected the interests of the majority.
  • Reject to the Militarism: Strasserism is considered pacifist, as Otto Strasser, in his book "Germany Tomorrow," proposed a pan-national democratic European federation where militarism was renounced.

It is important to note that as the Nazi Party consolidated under the leadership of Adolf Hitler, the Strasserists lost influence and were marginalized. In the infamous "Night of the Long Knives" in 1934, Gregor Strasser was killed on Hitler's orders, marking the end of Strasserism as a significant political current within the Nazi Party.


History

Strasserism is a political and social current that originated within the Nazi movement in Germany during the 1920s. This ideology takes its name from the Strasser brothers, Otto and Gregor, who were prominent leaders of the left-wing faction within the Nazi Party in its early years.

The Strasserist ideology was characterized by a focus on more radical economic and social issues than those of other Nazi leaders, such as Adolf Hitler. Strasserists advocated for a more socialist and anti-capitalist orientation within Nazi politics, promoting policies that would benefit workers and the lower social classes. This included measures like the nationalization of businesses and wealth redistribution.

Gregor Strasser in particular was a vocal advocate of these ideas and managed to gain some support within the party, especially among younger members and the working-class base. However, as the party gained influence and moved closer to power, Hitler and other more conservative leaders within the party began to view Strasserist ideas as potentially alienating important sectors of German society and industry.

As the Nazi Party solidified its position, internal tensions between the Strasserist faction and the faction led by Hitler escalated. Eventually, during the "Night of the Long Knives" in 1934, Hitler and the more conservative faction eliminated numerous opponents, including several Strasserist leaders like Gregor Strasser, who was assassinated.

After the removal of the Strasserists, the Strasserist ideology ceased to be a significant force within the Nazi Party, and its influence gradually waned over time. Hitler and his more conservative and nationalist vision prevailed in steering the party's direction and shaping Nazi policies.

Strasser Brothers

The Strasser Brothers, Gregor and Otto, were prominent figures in the early years of the Nazi Party and played a significant role in its growth and development during the 1920s. However, as the Nazi ideology solidified under the leadership of Adolf Hitler, the Strasser brothers found themselves in disagreement with some of the party's political and strategic directions, which eventually led them to clash with Hitler and lose influence.

Gregor Strasser was born on May 31, 1892, while Otto Strasser was born on September 10, 1897, both in Germany. Both brothers joined the Nazi Party early on, during the early years of the 1920s. Gregor became a prominent member of the party and played a significant role in expanding the party in northern Germany. Along with his brother Otto, he advocated for a more socialist and anti-capitalist approach within the party, often coming into conflict with Adolf Hitler and his more nationalist and anti-Semitic focus.

During the 1920s, the Strasser brothers were part of the more left-leaning faction of the Nazi Party and advocated for policies that promoted social justice and economic equality. However, their influence began to wane as Hitler consolidated his leadership and his vision prevailed within the party.

The rivalry between the Strasser brothers and Hitler reached a critical point during the 1930s. Gregor Strasser was assassinated in 1934 due to his ideological differences and his criticism of Hitler's leadership. After Hitler's rise to power in 1933, Otto Strasser also came into conflict with the Nazi regime and was forced into exile. Otto Strasser continued to criticize the direction the party had taken under Hitler and warned about the dangers of extremism and oppression in the Nazi regime.

After World War II, Otto lived in exile until 1955.
