The Nazism Subgroup covers both the German Nazi Party of 1920–1945, but also more recent neo-Nazi movements. At the very least, it draws on expertise from the History, Politics and Military Workgroups. Since it includes various works of political philosophy that guided development, it may draw upon the Philosophy Workgroup.

These often are more individualised writings than well-developed and actionable ideologies. Their common threads tend to be an emphasis on a racial elite (e.g., Nazi race and biological ideology), opposition to democracy, and readiness to resort to authoritarian social control and broader violence. The racial aspects, however, will benefit from the Anthropology Workgroup.
