National Socialism appeared first as the ideology of the National Socialist German Workers Party (NSDAP) under the leadership of Adolf Hitler in Germany after World War I. The 25 points was the party program of the NSDAP. Later National Socialism became the state ideology of National Socialist Germany. Political parties in various other countries have described themselves as National Socialist. Such parties are prohibited in Germany itself after World War II.

The contents of the ideology are extensively disputed with National Socialists (and others) often stating that the politically correct description is grossly incorrect in various aspects. Also, as for other ideologies, there are also ideological disputes between National Socialists. By necessity later National Socialists must to some degree adapt the original ideology to new circumstances. For example, the 25 points program sometimes refers to specific German post-World War I circumstances no longer existing.

Important aspects of ideology of the NSDAP and National Socialist Germany that many supporters and critics would probably agree on include race realism/racialism, German nationalism, community/solidarity building among Germans, eugenics, an intermediary position between extreme socialism and extreme capitalism regarding economic policy, opposition to liberal democracy, anti-communism, and opposition to Jews and various phenomena argued to be negative and associated with Jews.

Today, any form of support of White interests combined with any criticisms of anything Jewish is likely to be labelled "Nazism" or "Neo-Nazism". However, such individuals or organizations may reject this label for reasons such as disagreeing with National Socialist Germany's treatment of Jews (even if they are Holocaust revisionists), treatment of other groups, the economic system of National Socialist Germany, the political system of National Socialist Germany, argued anti-Slavism of National Socialist Germany, argued imperialism and colonialism of National Socialist Germany, and other reasons. Also individuals or organizations describing themselves as National Socialists may be critical of some aspects of National Socialist Germany and/or some aspects of the ideology of the NSDAP.
