    Germany has 17,952,000 households and 17,654,000 housewives. They work from early to late on their household chores. The value of their work is not calculated in money. If one did so, assuming a 10-hour day at 60 pfennig per hour, the total value of their labor would be 35 billion marks!

    The chart shows that the housewife is a mother, teacher, household accountant, seamstress, house cleaner, cook.

    The housewife increases the people's wealth through untiring labor. We must never forget this!

    Now consider Dr. Goebbels writing in 1929 from Why Are We Socialists?

    "Anyone who creates value is a creator, that is, a worker.

    We refuse to distinguish kinds of work. Our only standard is whether work serves the whole, or at least does not harm it, or if it is harmful. Work is service. If it works against the general welfare, then it is treason against the Fatherland.

    Marxist nonsense claimed to free labor, yet it degraded the work of its members and saw it as a curse and disgrace. It can hardly be our goal to abolish labor, but rather to give new meaning and content. The worker in a capitalist state--and that is his deepest misfortune--is no longer a living human being, a creator, a maker. He has become a machine. A number, a cog in the machine without sense or understanding. He is alienated from what he produces. Labor is for him only a way to survive, not a path to higher blessings, not a joy, not something in which to take pride, or satisfaction, or encouragement, or a way to build character.

    We do not want to make everyone the same. Nor do we want levels in the population, high and low, above and below. The aristocracy of the coming state will be determined not by possessions or money, but only on the quality of one's accomplishments. The value of labor under socialism will be determined by its value to the state, to the whole community. Labor means creating value, not haggling over things. The soldier is a worker when he bears the sword to protect the national economy. The statesman is also a worker when he gives the nation a form and a will that help it produce what it needs for life and freedom.

    We call ourselves a workers' party because we want to free labor from the chains of capitalism and Marxism. In battling for Germany's future, we freely admit to it, and accept the odium from the liberal bourgeoisie that results. We know that we will succeed in bringing new blessings out of their curses."

    So according to Goebbels, the difference between capitalism and socialism is propaganda.

    The essence of German socialism is best summed up in Helmut Stillreich's Faith and Action from 1938:

    "The common good before the individual good."

    "Think not of yourself, but of the whole, of the people and the state."

    "Not the same for everyone, but to each his own."

    As I said: propaganda. Feed the people some quasi-religious crap about Volk und Staat which is, at the end of the day, just as pointless and meaningless as the worship of any other temporal idol.
