“Fasci di combatimmento” betekent zoveel als “gebundelde bestrijders”. Mussolini begon als een gewone socialist. Zijn nostalgie naar de tijd van het glorieuze Romeinse rijk, en de socialistische neiging om anderen je wil op te leggen, leidden ertoe dat de fascisten onvermijdelijk hun toevlucht zochten tot (militair) geweld.
De zwarthemden hadden als motto “het kan me niets schelen”, wat aangaf hoe weinig ze gaven om mensenlevens. Als echte politiek beweging vonden ze het politieke gedrocht het belangrijkst. (Precies omgekeerd van de werkelijke rangschikking). De enige manier om de glorie van het Romeinse rijk te herstellen was door het volk naar zijn zin te buigen, daarvoor was dus het geweld van de zwarthemden nodig. Een rare van erkenning van de rang van het volk, en de wens om die rang te ontkennen.
The “Anti fascistische Aktion” movement is a greater threat than actual fascism is, or ever was. This is easily true, because fascism (Mussolini’s regime) never amounted to much – apart from being rather unpleasant to Italians and Ethiopians. Apart from the war with Ethiopia, Mussolini’s foreign ambitions were: (dare I say it) modest. True, there was the attempt to invade Greece, but that attempt failed. It took the nazis to show the fascists how it was done and to demonstrate the truism that all invasions succeed; national defense is impossible.
So fascism is not a big threat at all, yet #Antifa makes it out to be the worst thing to have happened to mankind. The fact that those howler monkeys invented a threat where there is none, makes them particularly dangerous. They’d impose all sorts of burdens on the world, in order to protect it againstthe hortors of fascism. So they terrorize the people with the full approval of their own conscience; meaning they will not let up, even try to rstchet up.
Driven by their genetic preprogramming to howl at the air around them, they continue to make up excuses to continue to howl, inventing more justification for the #terror they unleash on the world.
Antifa behave exactly like the phenomenon they protest against. But don’t expect them to start protesting against themselves. Because that would be, like, not-hypocritical (and thus,not done).
Although it’s true that all fascists are socialists, that does not mean that all socialists are fascists.
So, evnen though Hitler and Stalin were both socialists, they weren’t fascists.
But Hitler was driven by (beside the power madness and sadism that characterize all politicians) racism, (unfounded feelings of racial superiority, the Übermensch – Untermensch-thing), the claim that the superior folk deserved space to live (Lebensraum) that could be taken away from inferior peoples.
Stalin was driven by the lust for power, the desire to oppress & abuse more people. Don’t let anyone say that socialism is not sadistic.
Mussolini was driven by nostalgia: he wished to restore the glorious Roman empire. So yes, Mussolini,was more like Stalin than like Hitler, in that both were driven by the lust for power. So leftist apologists might be excused for caling Stalin a fascist – the mistake is easily made, much moreesily than calling Hitler a fascist – which is what they do al the time – out of intellectual laziness, or sheer opportunism, because even more so than Stalin, Hitler is best known for the evil that he has wrought – gas chambers, extermination camps, military occupation… And of course the left continues to deny that Hitler was a socialist, a lie that is impossible to maintain regarding Stalin, since communism has been the “great enemy” of so-called “capitalism” for such a long time. Lefties tell other lies about communism, such as that it has not killed millions of people. But Stalin is less well known in the west than Hitler, although his deliberate starving of the people in the Ukrayne made them support the nazis – classic “the enemy of my enemy is my friend” – though in this case it was clearly also a matter of choice between two evils, hoping that Hitler would be the lesser (borne out of Hitler’s relative obscurity in that country, and over-familiarity with Stalin).
Anyway, as this image shows the spectrum of socialism is full of nastiness: because both nazism and communism are slightly differing flavours of socialism and fascism is its own brand of socialism, all three partly overlap, but not completely. And historically, fascism was rather insignificant so it has the smallest circle
How come (almost) nobody makes as big a fuss about mall-guard brutality as people do about police brutality? (Hints of the Stanford prison experiment come to mind)
Tot nog toe dacht ik dat Rutte hartstikke links was, gezien zijn vrijages met de PtdA en DorIinks. Nu blijkt hij toch rechts te zijn. Rechts offert de belangen van het volk op aan het grootkapitaal, links offert de belangen van het volk op aan hun eigen pleziertjes. Dus als ik zou moeten kiezen uit het hele 1-dimensionale “spectrum” van links-rechts, zou ik rechts kiezen, minder kans op psychopaten. Gelukkig is er merler keuze dan dat. (Ik dacht al, hoe wilde je 17000000 in zo’n spectrum proppen?)
A very good definition, with this caveat: #Antifafas (Anti-Facistische Aktion #Fascists), if not proper fascists themselves, are exactly the kind of fascist they claim to be protesting against. (They only protest our of genetic imperative to howl, just like Howler monkeys – simia belzebub)
Oh, and #antifa are more of a treat than actual fascism, which has never been more than a historic curiosity, (of all forms of socialism, it failed the fastest)
The dictionary definition of fascism is wrong:
includes the statement
A political philosophy, movement, or regime (such as that of the Fascisti) that exalts nation and often race above the individual and that stands for a centralized autocratic government headed by a dictatorial leader, severe economic and social regimentation, and forcible suppression of opposition.
It is right in so many respects, yet becomes PC in one: it claims that fascism is racist; “exalts nation and often race”. Whie true that the facists (under Mussolini) attacked Ethiopia, where people of a different race lived. But this was only done for the greater glory of the political monstrosity called the nation.
Fascism wasn’t racist; at least it was not anti-semitic, there were some prominent fascists who were jews. It was only when the frustrated German socialists yanked the fascist strings (and even invaded Italy at one point) when jews got persecuted for their race.
Fascism was the ultimate expression of politics, and its spirit still lives on. The greater glory of the political construct (hence fable) was elevated above all other interests, including (especially) those of the people. This is eerily similar to the right-wing:
- The right wing sacrifices the interests of the people to big business
- The left wing sacrifices the interests of the people to their own petty pleasures.
One iftose pleasures will likely be “basking in the glory of a great nation”, this is were the lines between left and right blur: the left will find part of their desired glory in economic power (which led to Stalin’s Gulag slavery).
This is where the myth comes from that fascism means the integration of the state and the corporation: politics finds particular glory in economic power, sobusinesses get preferetial treatment. Also, because fascism is socialism, corporations were nationalized, which also fed the myth.
