So you have said, and repeated, but I see no reflection of this in real
life. Nazi means what it always did. It may be different where you are, but
the meanings of words like Nazi, socialism, fascism, racism, etc., are
still perfectly clear iand unchanged n the vernacular I hear around me.

Only where I live, "socialism" isn't a bad thing at all. Just a thing.

namaste,
