From CtH: I never understood the real difference between Nazism and Communism, given that both built top-down, military-heavy governments that persecuted Jews and Christians. Then I saw something in Bruce Walker’s, The Swastika Against the Cross: The Nazi War on Christianity, that seemed to make a lot of sense. He said that the Bolsheviks eschewed all nationalism, while the Nazis embraced hyper-nationalism.
