Adolf Hitler didn’t consider his National Socialist party a movement; he thought of it as a religion. He saw himself as a religious leader. He was motivated and inspired by his evil god.
The Nazis had a colossal assembly hall, and they called it a hall of worship. Nazism was an extreme cult worship in a way. Hitler said he followed the Jesuit order, the part of the Catholic leadership that expresses fierce allegiance to the pope; he patterned the elite SS after that. It was a religion. It was, in fact, the Holy Roman Empire.
