The Third Path derives its name from the so-called “Third Way” in German politics. As the party’s first point on its ten-point program puts it: “The aim of the party Der Dritte Weg is the creation of a German socialism far away from exploitative capitalism as well as egalitarian communism.”

The party is considered affiliated with the “left-wing” branch of historical Nazi ideology and is in favor of nationalizing all of Germany’s key industries, as well as public services and social welfare, banks, and major companies. 

But it is decidedly racist in tone: Its program includes “the rigorous funding of families with any children to prevent an imminent extinction of the German people,” and “the preservation and development of the biological substance of the German people.”

Moreover, the Third Path openly questions the legitimacy of Germany’s post-war borders, demanding “the restoration of Great Germany with its original frontiers.”
