If you could push a button to instantly eradicate all forms of socialism, including National Socialism, would you press it?

Why is socialism "bad", exactly? What reasons do I have to push the button?>>3909
Also this. Seems strange to mention it at all.

how does one define national socialism? as in, all forms of government in the top right corner of a political compass, i.e., ur-fascist ideologies?
then ... maybe. it would be a question of if the evil potentially to be abolished in however we define "national socialism" would be worth sacrificing whatever good we can take out of "socialism."
that said, the prompt is really weirdly worded. Nazism has little, if anything, to do with socialism, save the name.
does the button work, by name association? If so, maybe we ought to be careful.
ultimately, i think i would say no.

Depends how you define Socialism.>pic related>>3913
Fascism is more of a broad catch all term for the authoritarian right, National Socialism is specifically the philosophy of Adolf Hitler, other major National Socialist leaders at the time, and of course what the party actually did.
You could see Fascism as being a treem and National Socialism as being a branch on that tree.
You could have at least said strasserism instead which was a strand of nazism that was at the least intended to be closer to socialism due to the complete lack of socialism in nazism. Strasserism is still bad though and still should be condemned. Socialism however in my opinion is fine outside of more authoritarian and oppression versions of state socialism and other questionable manifestations of it some of which are also questionable if they're socialism at all.
At any rate to answer OP's question no especially since fascism would still exist anyway as would ultranationalism of a similar nature to nazism. >>3904
Don't forget lack of government as stateless socialism is a thing.>>3912
Idk I think there are enough bad manifestations of more authoritarian versions of state socialism to make the choice interesting without bringing something into it that isn't socialism save for arguably strasserism.>>3917
It really doesn't as there are already fairly well established definitions of socialism. Taking hitler's idea of socialism as socialism especially if you take it as the ONLY form of socialism as he advocates is like saying the political right is actually the political left. It's just pointless and counterproductive.
