Definition of Fascism by Merriam-Webster is wrong

The dictionary definition of fascism is wrong:

https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/fascism

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.

Basic slavery

If the basic income would get introduced, that would (in my humble estimation) lead to Soviet-style slavery to get the dirty jobs done (aka the Gulag),because there would be no possible (financial) incentive for people to do the unpleasant jobs, like building tall buildings. That’s how the Soviets ended up with the tall baracks complexes (“Apartment buildings”). They had Gulag slaves to dig the uranium out of the mines, they also used slaves to cut down trees in order to get the wood that was the premier Soviet export commoddity.

Charging Al Gore with attempted democide

Why hasn’t Al #Gore yet been charged with attempted democide? For his deliberately high #carbon #footprint, (limo to be driven to his private jet, owning several mansions), his only possible defense would be to claim he never believed in global #warming. No judge worth his salt would believe a word of that (given Gore’s track record as the main consistent champion of the Big Lie), and would sentence him to a fine of $1, to be paid to each one of the American people, meaning a total fine of $320mln, which he can surely afford after having coerced/bribed every government in the world to buy products/services from the companies he bought cheap stock in.

Sentencing him to a 6000 year prison sentence seems a bit pointless, because:

he’ll have died of natural causes after having served only a fraction of the time,

It only serves to enable him recommence his evil lying from behind bars, martyring him, which will lead to rioting on the streets by leftist bastards, vandalizing whatever they can, to vent their frustration with their plans having been thwarted.

He’ll once again live at the expense of the tax payer – in what way is that justice?

Any way you look at it: the Gore is gonna have to pay up: either for deceiving so many of the world’s leaders, or for attempting to murder every single one of us. (Or for financially profitting from the suffering of the world’s population).

I’m being generous here: limit the fine to each of the 320mln Americans. There’s no need to pay each one of the 7 bln world citizens, given that paying a mere $0.01 to each of his worldwide victims would cost him $70mln, which is beyond his capacity to pay. Unlike prison sentences, this would deter him from re-engaging in his hideous practices, since he’d not have the money to do that.

In the style of Vincent Bugliosi’s “The Prosecution of George W. Bush for Murder”.

That oughtta teach the bastards a lesson, and hopefully inspire people around the world to press charges against their national politicians, thus purging the system’s evil components (which, given the nature of government, would likely empty the entire system.)

Because: I don’t know about you, but I’m quite scared of governments which have turned against the people, not just the officially communist ones, but all of them (including the unofficially #communist ones). According to professor Paul Gottfried, one aspect of Mussolini’s fascist government was, that they considered the state as a sentient being. which is really what they all do, and they all did (going back at least as far as the USSR’s #Gulag, but really any despot that introduced a secret police, to fight anyone of the citizens that thought government should serve them, instead of vice versa). I won’t expect #AntiFa to protest against that.

No, Hitler wasn’t a fascist (& Stalin)

#Hitler was a socialist, although socialism was international and the National Socialist Hitler wasn’t internationally minded – as witnessed by his attempting to bring so many nations under the umbrella of one single nation, the third Reich. That he was in charge of (of course, who else?)
Also, he was quite the racist (though perhaps he wasn’t, deep down inside; maybe he only used persecution of Unermenschen as a tool for getting elected. – divide and conquer. He was callous, in his readiness to sacrifice other people’s lives to make his own happy dream true. And Mussolini’s party even had a few jewish members. Black leaders were very positive about him (until the invasion of Ethiopia, of course.)
But Stalin was quite fascistic, though: one of the features of fascism was that the state was considered a sentient being in its own right. Stalin famously (notoriously) instated the Gulag, the Main Directorate of Corrective labour camps.
Good, grief! Let that sink in for a bit: the state deigns to reeducate (correct) the people! The people it is entirely dependent upon for its mere existence!

Gulag 5: Stalin the efficient manager

Stalin had achieved miraculous results for “his” country: within a short amount of time, Russia grew from a nation of predominantly farmers into a big industrialized nation.
He did not achieve that through succesful management techniques: rather, he sacrificed milions of lives to his own personal dream of being in charge of a country that could rival the prestige of other (western) countries.
No business manager would get away with that: if the working conditions in his business are so awful that dead bodies have to be carted out on wheelbarrows, or the compulsory business-provided transportation does not come with a restaurant car or even a friendly lady selling refreshments from a cart, but rather has prisoners fighting over a place near the metal bars, because humidity would condense on these bars and thirsty victims could lick it off. Such a business could not acquire personell anymore; people would rather die in the comfort of their own home, than endure such ravages to go do work that hardly pays at all. (Certainly not enough to compensate for the horrible conditions).
On top of that, I would even quibble with the qualifier “efficient”: so many wasted lives.

Gulag 4: contemporary politics 2 (future)

For the convenience of English speaking readers, I translated this post from a Dutch post I made earlier.

In Russua, people are so used to the Gulag (everybody has a relative who’s been imprisomed in the Gulag – enough to make you shiver!), that people’s feelings about the system have been dulled. And #Putin wishes for this blemish on the country’s history to be forgotten.
Think about western state-terrorism; now suppose there will be no revolutions (sadly, a possibility) ridding the world of the outdated monstrosities, swipe them into the dustbins of history, then how would future generations cope with the shame of state-terrorism, the continent-wide #fascism, which are now occurring/on the rise?
How would future generations handle that? If they’re smart, they’ll shrug it of and go in with their lives. After all, they didn’t do it: politicians did.
Some citizens may have cheered the politicians on, but they were simply influenced by demagogues. And yes, THEY (the gullible citizens / the politicians) ought to be ashamed of themselves, though it has yet to be seen whether they are capable of that – but is not necessary for the civillians to be ashamed of the misbehavior of politicians, even when they let themselves be fooled by politicians out of their own free will, while knowing better.
Suppose that in the future, some will develop strong feelings about having permitted #MKultra / #Guatanamo Bay, #waterboarding (though politics wanted these, mankind merely didn’t do enough to try and stop politicians)

Goelag 4: hedendaagse politiek 2 (toekomstige)

In Rusland, is men zo gewend aan de Goelag (iedereen heeft wel een familielid dat in de Goelag heeft gezeten), dat het weinig opzien baart in de volksgeest.
En #Poetin wil dat die smet op de landsgeschiedenis geen aandacht krijgt. Denk je eens aan de westerse staatsterreur: stel dat er geen #revoluties komen die de ahterhaalde gedrochten van natiestaten de prullenmand van de geschiedenis in vegen, hoe zouden toekomstige generaties dan omgaan met de schande van de staatsterreur/het continentbrede fascisme, die er nu gebeuren / dat nu in opmars is?
Hoe zouden toekomstige generaties daarmee omgaan? Als ze slim zijn zullen ze  het van zich afschudden en doorgaan met hun leven. Tenslotte hebben niet burgers dat gedaan, maar politici. Sommige burgers juichten misschien wel die politici toe, maar zij hebben zich laten beïnvloeden door de demagogen. En ja: ZIJ (die goedgelovige burgers/politici) moeten zich schamen – het is maar de vraag of ze dat kunnen – maar het is nergens voor nodig dat ze zich gaan schamen voor het wangedrag van de politici, zelfs al waren ze uit eigen vrije wil & tegen beter weten in zo goedgelovig om zich voor het karretje van manipulatieve politici te laten spannen. Zet gewoon die politici aan de kant en ga je eigen gang. Veel beter om zulke toekomstige dilemma’s te voorkomen.
Stel dat sommigen het zich wél gaan aantrekken, wat voor gevolgen zal dat hebben? Het is nu (2017) al politiek roerig, kun je nagaan wanneer men zich gaat opwinden over dat men o.a. #MKUltra / #Waterboarding en #GuantanamoBay heeft toegelaten ( dat heeft men niet gedaan: de #politiek wilde het, en over politiek heeft de burger niets te zeggen)
