What is fascism and why is it coming back?

Attempts to define fascism, which often use “vague” language like totalitarianism or one-party system, create confusion, which is often used by anti-Soviet propaganda, comparing this system with communism.


However, the most accurate wording describing the aforementioned doctrine belongs to Georgy Mikhailovich Dmitrov:

Fascism is an open terrorist dictatorship of the most reactionary, chauvinistic, imperialist elements of financial capital. This is not superclass power and not the power of the petty bourgeoisie over capital. Fascism is the power of capital itself.

For the first time, fascism was born in Italy as a doctrine. This system was nothing more than an attempt by the bourgeoisie to combine corporate capital with the state machine, while replacing class interests with "solidarism" and endless devotion to the leader. As a result, it became an instrument of the capitalists in those countries where the risk of losing influence was especially great.

Thanks to the heroism of the Soviet Army and allied states, fascism was defeated during World War II. However, the prerequisites for its appearance have not disappeared. And the reason for this is still imperialist power.

Today, at the time of the capitalist crisis and even greater impoverishment of the working masses (which will certainly lead to strikes that must be suppressed), the likelihood of the advent of fascism increases many times over. At the same time, the communist organizations pose the greatest threat to the bourgeoisie. That is why they are the first to be hit.

It is worth remembering that fascism is not a tragic accident of history, but a logical and logical product of the development of the contradictions of the capitalist system. In any country controlled by oligarchic groups, there are prerequisites for its occurrence. And only an organized working class that is aware of its interests can finally defeat fascism together with the bourgeois system that generated it.

    Yes, "mummers" with skulls on chevrons at rallies were already dispersed.
    So there are calls, there are ...

      Yes, in principle, the Communists dispersed the rallies much tougher. Take the shooting of a peaceful workers rally in Novocherkassk in 1962. Communism is, of course, not fascism, but also dictatorship and extreme.

    In order not to procrastinate the topic and get confused in particulars, here I have formulated the general:
    The whole worldview of barbarian Europe, and Europe is for the most part descendants of barbarians, is built on latent racism.
    Even their tolerance today is a kind of barbaric foolishness of a latent racist. A man cannot be tolerant, he is human ... here, the impossibility of being a human person, and you should see the foundation of European fascism.
    The Russian world is not for Europeans, no one will bring them the keys to it ... learn the Russian language ... to get rid of the inferiority complex, the descendant complex of barbarians ...
    It is the language of culture - that is what determines the inner world of man, all metaphysics ...
    In this sense, after the death of the great Latin, Europe is wretched.

    There was a place to be "Renaissance" - this is when to know, after the fall of Constantinople, moved to Rome and taught the locals to read ancient books in Latin ...
    ... there was a rush, there was enlightenment, there were excesses. Europe remained essentially barbaric ... they ceased to burn their fellow tribesmen - they took on foreigners ...

    For example, their very pride, the French Revolution.
    In fact, this is a product of mass psychosis that swept Europe descendants of the barbarians. A psychosis that lasted a decade after the capture of the Bastille, which took the form of a murder mystery, the priests of which were madmen. The same guillotine - reflects the essence of aspirations.

    The phenomenon is most fully described and studied, like the French Revolution, 1789 - 1799. Then, at some time, Napoleon tried to stop the psychosis by shooting the shots of the next revolutionaries.
    But this did not stop the spread of paranoia throughout Europe, which also captured Napoleon himself, and did not save France.
    When psychosis was finally stopped first of all by our ancestors, Napoleon, being in exile on the island, wrote down -

    ... regrets that he did not die then in Moscow. Would remain a hero in history ...

    I am sure that today those who celebrated the victory in the Cold War will still regret that they did not die then, with that victory ...
    We disentangle the consequences of that psychosis until now, like the curse of a certain compilation comic strip “universal declaration of human rights” - the whole universality of which lies in its superficiality ...

    The West must be destroyed.

      But all this can be said about the history of Russia.

      Quote: Zheleznyak
      The whole worldview of barbarian Europe, and Europe is for the most part descendants of barbarians, is built on latent racism.

      A third of Europe is inhabited by our kindred Slavs.

      Quote: Zheleznyak
      ... in this sense, after the death of the great Latin - Europe is wretched.

      Again, most Slavs speak akin to Russian.

      Quote: Zheleznyak
      For example, their very pride, the French Revolution.

      But the Russian October (absolutely Western generation) overshadowed the French Revolution in all respects.

      Quote: Zheleznyak
      the compilation comic strip “universal declaration of human rights” - the whole universality of which lies in its superficiality ...

      But it's better than nothing

      Quote: Zheleznyak

      Apparently Russia is part of this west.

    Fascism is an open terrorist dictatorship of the most reactionary, chauvinistic, imperialist elements of financial capital. This is not superclass power and not the power of the petty bourgeoisie over capital. Fascism is the power of capital itself.

    Some kind of slurred definition. Classics must be read.

    For fascism, man is an individual, united with the nation, the Fatherland,
    obeying a moral law linking individuals through tradition,
    a historical mission, and a paralyzing life instinct, limited by a circle of fleeting pleasure, in order to create a higher life in the consciousness of duty, free from the boundaries of time and space. In this life, an individual through self-denial, sacrifice by private interests, even by the feat of death, carries out a purely spiritual being, in which his human value lies.

    The fascist concept of the state is anti-individualistic; fascism recognizes the individual because it coincides with the state representing
    universal consciousness and the will of man in his historical existence

    The fascist rejects world hugs and, living in communication with civilized nations, he does not let himself be fooled by a changeable and deceptive appearance; vigilant and incredulous, he looks into their eyes and monitors the state of their spirit and the change of their interests.

    Who says liberalism says "individual"; who says "fascism", he says "state."

    The fascist state is the will to power and domination.

      Here is still very good from British political analyst Lawrence Britt:

      1. Vivid manifestations of nationalism
      The ceremonial demonstration of flags, pride in military achievements, calls for national unity against this background are characteristically linked with suspicions of everything foreign and with outbreaks of xenophobia.

      2. Contempt for human rights
      Human rights are depreciated - they impeded the fulfillment of the goals of the ruling elite. Using propaganda, such regimes ensured that the population dutifully accepted violations of human rights, and socially isolated and demonized those who were the object of these violations.

      3. Search for scapegoats
      One of the most significant common features of the fascist regimes was the search for enemies to blame them for their mistakes, distract the population from other problems and channel social disappointment in a controlled direction. People who opposed received the label of "terrorists" and the corresponding appeal.

      4. The dominance of the entire military
      The ruling elite has always identified itself with the army. A huge part of the national resources went to military spending, even if it was difficult to meet the country's domestic needs. For these regimes, military power was an expression of national superiority, and they used it whenever possible to intimidate neighbors and increase their power and prestige of the ruling class.

      5. Ubiquitous sexism
      Under fascism, women saw second-class citizens; they maintained a firm stance against abortion. This was reflected in the draconian laws, which were supported by the traditional religion of the country.

      6. Control over the media
      The media under fascism were often under the strict control of the authorities and could not step back from the party line. Control methods included not only issuing permits and access to resources, economic pressure and persistent calls for patriotism, but also threats.

      7. National security obsession
      The national security apparatus served the fascist regimes as a repressive tool, working in secrecy and without restriction. Moreover, any doubt about his activities was branded as a betrayal.

      8. The connection between religion and the ruling class
      Propaganda supported the illusion that fascist leaders were advocates of the faith and their opposition atheists. People had the feeling that opposing the power elite was like rebelling against religion.

      9. Protection of corporate power
      While the private lives of ordinary citizens were under strict control, large companies could operate with relative freedom. Corporations not only guaranteed powerful military production, but also acted as an additional means of social control.

      10. Suppression of workers associations
      Labor movements were considered a force that could challenge the political hegemony of the ruling class and the entrepreneurs supporting it. Such movements were suppressed and equated with criminal gangs. The poor were looked upon with contempt and suspicion.

      11. Contempt for intellectuals and art
      It was believed that intellectual and academic freedom threatened national security and patriotic ideals. Freedom of thought and expression was condemned and suppressed.

      12. Obsession with crime and punishment
      The number of prisoners under fascism was very high, while the police received a heroic reputation and almost unlimited power, which led to numerous abuses. To justify the expansion of the powers of the police, the authorities stimulated fear among the population of criminals, traitors and enemies.

      13. Protectionism and corruption
      Entrepreneurs close to the authorities used their position to enrich themselves. Corruption developed in both directions: the fascist regime received financial assistance from the economic elite, and that - political services from the government. Members of the power elite often used their position to appropriate national resources.

      14. Fraud of election results
      Allegedly free elections were, as a rule, fictitious. In real elections, the ruling elites sought to manipulate candidates to get a profitable result.

    Fascism is the true unity of the nation. In short, absolutely - the Satanists are "internationalists." Give them a kind of “unity” under their “sensitive guidance”. Remember the famous: "Workers of all countries - unite!" Where to connect? Who leads the connection? At whose expense is the "banquet"? Fascism, as a "pure theory" and "attempt at" is a positive phenomenon. It is, as it were, opposed to the desire of “ordinary people” (briefly, conveniently, and very sensibly, since it is “UFO” to drive people into its gigantic concentration camp. Take our time. Great Britain does not want to live in the barracks and obey the global Satanists. And that’s wonderful! And that’s why it is Great Britain. And Russia, for example, has been paying UFO "tribute" in the form of a predatory exchange rate of the ruble against the dollar for decades. What good is this "anti-fascism" for us?
    But! Satanist capitalists (imperialists, globalists have the means and connections, control the media, etc. Therefore, they are able to “turn everything upside down.” And it so happened that the notorious “fascist” Hitler, in words fighting against “plutocrats” ", in fact, was an overseer in their giant European concentration camp, where millions of unfortunate PEOPLE worked for those same" plutocrats "- ordinary nonhumans for a bowl of mischief. It is well known that UMO is General Electric, Opel is General Motors "(I can be mistaken), but Ford did not change the nameplate ...
    Adults should clearly know that "UFOs" are able to spoil, pervert any good undertaking of people. Human beings should strive to learn how to work with them. Here is the task. And people have enough sensible theories.
