Voting the same against a competing interest is not the same as "working with".

It is "working with" them to defeat that competing interest. Seriously? You started with "No! They never worked together to prevent a free market from being adopted!" to "well, they voted together to defeat the free market advocates, but that's not the same as working with them". Whatever you want to call it, it's exactly what I was talking about. Both groups were opposed to free markets. So to try to say that one was opposed while the other was for free markets is patently false.

Trust me when I say I know far, far more about **** Germany than you do.

I have been studying this history for 40 years. No exaggeration. You have not.

Then you haven't absorbed what you learned very well. My knowledge of Germany is from a couple classes, a few books on the subject, and various conversations (and related research) about it. Yet I apparently have a better grasp of the relative positions and actions of the communists and fascists in Germany at the time than you do. I mean, you didn't even seem to be aware of what I said when I first said it. Now you're acknowledging that my statement was correct, but it didn't mean they were really working together. Look. I never said they were buddies or anything, just that the communists voted for the ***** in order to ensure that a socialist party gained power. They did this because they believed that if socialist policies were adopted in Germany that it would be a step in the direction they wanted to go, and perhaps later they could win over more power in the future and enact a more complete communist system.

Are you saying that's wrong? Because I'm pretty sure that's correct.
