    Often people confronting those they perceive to be "Nazis" will attempt to characterize their opponents as believers in "Might Makes Right," or force over social or diplomatic means. Where "Might Makes Right" comes into play is the moralization of the American and British republics, where often a cry was raised of, "You can't do that - you're violating the human rights of someone!" This is a blind cry to avoid certain actions before considering their object, and in most people, is easily seen as pretense. Would you violate the human rights of a rapist who moved into your living room uninvited? Would you violate the human rights of a tribe across the next mountain range who made periodic rape and looting incursions to your own town? Of course you would, but this is not how the issue is construed in propaganda. If you believe the media, the church and the corporate politicians, there is a minimum standard for social discourse and those who violate it are out of line and must be punished. They do not mention how this "social standard" can be used as a shield for people to do legal but dishonorable things which have corrupt values and lead to degenerate results. In many ways, these people are telling you "(Social) Might Makes Right," which is a more primitive view of the philosophy espoused by the Nazi party. In National Socialism, there is no morality, only a question of what is achieved and one's personal honor. The rules do not apply to methods, but to values and end results. However, in a moralized society which is blind to its own brutish tendencies, this may seem to be "Might Makes Right," and thus often this is the answer given (incorrectly) by National Socialists or those attempting to summarize the national socialist position against its advantage in discourse.
