Collectivism at Work

This poster advertises the Nazi charity, the NSV. The text translates: "Health, child protection, fighting poverty, aiding travellers, community, helping mothers: These are the tasks of the National Socialist People's Charity. Become a member!" These planks could just as well be taken from the platform of any modern collectivist movement i.e. socialized medicine, welfare, child day care etc. Of course, like other collectivist schemes, "membership" was not always "voluntary".
