Neo = new/modern , so basically just a modern Nazi.

It's kind of used interchangeably with white-supremacists.

u/Pika_Fox Sep 22 '22

Nazis were white supremacists, so.

Yeah but they're dead hence the neo part.

u/Pika_Fox Sep 22 '22

Oh how i wish nazis were actually dead... Multiple governments, including the US, sheltered nazis. Not to mention nazis based their ideologies, racism and genocide off of that of the american south.

Yet not all white supremacists are Nazis.

u/Pika_Fox Sep 23 '22

Mmm, they kinda are. We like to white wash our history in the US, but our genocide numbers puts the nazis to shame.

u/SCHEME015 Sep 23 '22

You seriously think that one genocide producing literal extermination camps was "put to shame"?

2

u/Pika_Fox Sep 23 '22

Yup.... Again, we heavily downplay the utter genocide the US committed with chattel slavery and the massacre of the natives. There is a reason the nazis took after us in particular. White supremacists are nazis. The german nazis are just the most recent prominent example that we didnt white wash.

You even double down. Dude. Don't do oppression Olympics. Don't go around saying holocaust survivors had it better than others. It's so shameful.

u/Pika_Fox Sep 23 '22

I didnt say they had it better than others? The fuck did you get that from? Just that the scale of what the nazis did isnt the same as what the US did historically. Theyre all the same breed. Give white supremacists control, and you get genocide. Fuck, trump even started up the concentration camps on US soil again, and already started the dehumanization of the people there. The republican party is right there on the edge, ready to go full blown nazi the first chance they get.

u/SCHEME015 Sep 23 '22

You said the holocaust was put to shame. Really, really bad to say that.

u/Pika_Fox Sep 23 '22

In terms of total death count? Yeah. Thats just facts.

Tell that to neo-liberal

u/Grundelwald Sep 23 '22

Huh?

u/That_Set2217 Sep 23 '22

You said neo means new/modern... which I agree but it doesn't always fit the word. Lookup neo-liberal it'll surprise you.

u/Grundelwald Sep 23 '22

Well, I think neoliberalism was probably coined in the latter half of the 1900s. Probably some Chomsky or Foucault era post-war thinker coined it I bet. (Too lazy to look up). But it's "neo" because the OG "liberal" ideology was basically the birth of American democracy and it's adoption through Europe etc. Then when the allies won, the world reoriented around the western democracy-capitalist framework. With the UN, IMF, WHO, etc. Neoliberalism is this modern rules-based international capitalist system. It's the modern version of classical liberalism.
