There are nevertheless some insights given into Nazi thinking. Nazism has been misunderstood as simply an extreme form of German nationalism. Ironically, one of Goebbels writings had been: "Why have we parted from the nationalists?" (p. 39).
National Socialism has commonly been misrepresented as extreme capitalism. In actuality, and consistent with later works, Goebbels repeatedly condemned capitalism, at least big capitalism (p. 42, 44, 132, 146). He spoke negatively of capitalism and Bolshevism in the same sentence (p. 44). Goebbels feared that, one day, German soldiers will be fighting once again as mercenaries of the capitalists.
