LIBERAL FASCISM (The “WILL to POWER”)

Fascism’s appeal was in it’s “WILL to POWER”, self-abandonment to one’s INSTINCTS

fascists rejected the “cold logic” of their parents

a “progressive” future vs. “corrupt” traditional past:

adolescent defiance of parental authority

selfish, spoiled, angry children rebel against the normal responsibilities of adulthood – emotional, violent immature, self-destructive and self-indulgent “children” throw “temper tantrums” against “reality, satisfying infantile claims to entitlement, indulgence, compensationimmediate gratification, social “change“ and “justice

Fascists GLORIFY CRIME as REBELLION against the authority and“power” of the PAST NARCISISTIC NIHILISM?VIOLENCE and CHAOS AS POLITICAL REBELLION and POWER TOWARDS CLAIMED “SOCIAL JUSTICE”

– From the Nazi youth of german universities, to the college radicals of american universities in the 1960s, to saul alinsky style “community organizing”, revolutionary “action” was a “romantic” rebellion by resentful youth    against “reason” and the past

    – “revolution” an appeal and embrace of    “violence”in the cause of“social justice” 

        MASKING a “passion” for POWER (lacking “principles”)

    – like a CHILD’s TEMPER TANTRUM PROTESTING “REALITY, “FEELINGS” OVER “FACTS

ACTION was BASED on a “ROMANTIC” APPEAL to “EMOTION

   “FEELING” = POWER = ACTION = VIOLENCE

Fascism’s appeal was in it’s “WILL to POWER” – SELF-ABANDONMENTto one’s

INSTINCTS

Since Plato’s Republic, politicians, intellectuals and priests have been FASCINATED WITH

YOUTH.   

The LIBERAL CULT of CHILD is instructive in its similarities to fascist thought. Children, like youth, are DRIVEN by PASSION, FEELINGS, EMOTION, WILL.Youth represents the glories of ‘UNREASON’.

These sentiments are deeply tied to the NARCISSISTIC populism that celebrates the INSTINCTS of the masses. 

“I WANT it NOW and I DON’t CARE if it’s against the rules’ is the quinessentially childlike populist passion. 

Fascism is a form of populism because the LEADER forges a parental bond with his children.  Without the emotional bond between the leader and ‘the people’, Fuhrer and Volk, FASCISM is IMPOSSIBLE.

“’I’m on your side’, ‘I’m one of you’, constitutes the sales pitch of every fascist and populist Demagogue or as Willie Stark says to the nurturing crowd in all the king’s men: you will is my strength. Your need is my justice.

ARGUMENTS, FACTS, REASON: THESE are SECONDARY.

The CULT of FASCIST YOUTH

Nazi RELIGION was a manifestation of ancient “pagan” ROMANTICISM.

Traditional  Judeo-Christian values symbolized what HELD BACK the Germans.

CONSCIENCE is a JEWISH INVENTION” – Hitler

Enlightenment ideas of “universal humanity” were mocked by the “post-modern” Nazis.

To the Fascists, traditional religion and moralitywas a “scam”.  Since there were NO FIXED OR UNIVERSAL TRUTHS…what was required, according to Hitler, was a REVOLT AGAINST  REASON” for “[I]NTELLECT has POISONED our people  fascists rejected the “cold logic” of their parents and “corrupttraditions of society.

Judeo-Christian values were a “SLAVE MORALITY” that COUNTERED the “NATURAL” FASCIST “WILL to POWER

Are fascists  “slaves” to their own passions and selfish “will to power”?

Judeo-Christian thought attached SPIRITUAL and MORAL SIGNIFICANCE  of MARRIAGE.

The Nazis sought to THROW OFF the “chains” of traditionalreligious and “bourgeois”. Morality.   FOLLOW ONE’s “INSTINCTS” (“LUST”), abandon the “institution” of marriage (“love”)  One was “free-er” before they were  “caged” by bourgeosie or “traditional” morality.

The Nazis adopted the ancient, “pagan” view of SEX AS GRATIFICATION. 

“Marriage, … in bourgeosie society, is generally a thing AGAINST NATURE” – Hitler

Hitler dreamed of transforming Germany into a warrior nation of “aryan spartans” loyal to him alone.  The elite S.S. were ordered “to father as many children as possible without marrying

The INDICTMENT of REASON, populist appeals to defeating ”the system”

Boththe nazis and 1960s radicals shared a love of violence and hate of bourgeois

“civilization”. 

BourgeoisAmerica was “radically evil” and had to be radically challenged.

John Toland: “Their goal was to establish a youth culturefor FIGHTING the BOURGEOISE TRINITY of SCHOOL, HOME and CHURCH.

Even before the Nazis seized power, student radicals were eager to challenge the stodgy conservatism of German higher education, which cherished classically liberal academic freedomand the authority of scholars and teachers.

A wave of Nietzschean pragmatism swept across Europe, bringing with it a wind that blew away the stale dogmas of their parents’ generation, revealing a new world to be seen with fresh eyes” middle-class kids with no personal experience of poverty or suffering –  compared to blacks in the south and the jews and others in Europe and Asia – all went around with Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals in their backpacks

UNIVERSAL EDUCATION is the most corroding and disintegrating POISON that liberalism has ever INVENTEDfor its OWN DESTRUCTION     –  Adolf Hitler

Radicalism became ROMANTIC. Alienated and ignorant kids yearned to become Che Guevara and KILL the capitalists.  That’s how RICH KIDS like Bill Ayersand BernardineDohrn LEARNED THEIR THEOLOGY.  It’s how they became heroes in their own eyes.  Such saintly people, giving their all for the poor and helpless.

Hillary rodham complained about her authoritarian father when she was a child, and instantly on getting to Wellesley.  

She fell for Alinsky and his Rules, and became an admiring disciple  of theMASTER of SCAPEGOATING. 

The PERSECUTED BECOME the PERSECUTOR.

Mike Royko, speaking about the radicals: “They came from a background of being  RICH KIDS, where apparently TANTRUMS would GET THEM WHAT THEY WANTED”  

And they wanted IMMEDIATE GRATIFICATION and SOCIAL CHANGE “IMMATURE, SELF-DESTRUCTIVE and SELF-INDULGENT“CHILDREN” WHO THREW “TEMPER TANTRUMS” AGAINST “REALITY”?

Fascist ActionThe Will To POWER – “Romantic  Revolutionaries” Rejecting Reason (& Reality)

[A “TOTALITARIAN” TYRANNY of the “WEAK” – adolescent “tantrum” against adult;

“bullied victims” persecuting their “bully-ing victimizers”] 

TheyBEAR NO RESPONSIBILITY FOR THEIR PROBLEMS.  None of their agonies areattributable to faults or failings of their OWN: not to poor choices, bad habits, faulty  judgment, wishful thinking, lack of ambition, low frustration tolerance, mental illness or defects in character.

None of the victims’plight is caused by failure to plan for the future or learn from EXPERIENCE.[their rejection of the past, imagining and invent their “OWN” reality]

Instead, the ‘ROOT CAUSES’of all this PAIN lie in FAULTY SOCIAL CONDITIONS: poverty,disease, war, ignorance, unemployment, racial prejudice, ethnic and gender discrimination, modern technology, capitalism, globalization and imperialism.  In the radical liberal mind, this sufferingis inflictedon the innocentby various predators andpersecutors: “big business, big corporations, greedy capitalists, U.S. imperialists,  the oppressors, the rich, the wealthy, the powerful and ‘the selfish’”.

The LIBERAL “CUREfor this ENDLESS MALAISEis a very LARGE AUTHORITARIAN GOVERNMENTthat regulates and manages society through acradle to grave agenda of redistributive caretaking. The liberal cure is a GOVERNMENT EVERYWHEREDOING EVERYTHINGFOR EVERYONEThe liberal motto is IN GOVERNMENT WE TRUST”.

To RESCUEthe people from their troubled lives, the AGENDArecommends DENIALofPERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY, encourages self-pity and other-pity, FOSTERSgovernment  dependency, PROMOTES sexual indulgence, RATIONALIZES violence, EXCUSES financial obligation,  JUSTIFIEStheft, IGNORESrudeness, prescribes complaining and blaming,DENIGRATES marriage and the family,legalizes all abortion, defies religious and  social tradition, declares inequality unjust, and  REBELS AGAINSTthe DUTIESof citizenship.

The very premise on which the occupy movement and the liberal platform of wealth redistribution are based in JEALOUSY.  They WANT WHAT OTHERS HAVE, and theywant it WITHOUT COST TO THEMSELVES, either monetarily or based on time.

They are ENVIOUSof those with wealth, health insurance, homes, etc.  It is a common attribute upon  which all liberal protesters rally around.  The liberal movement amounts to nothing morethan MAKING EXCUSES to legitimize a platform of LAZINESSand ENTITLEMENTS.

“ROMANTIC REBELS” – HITLER and “HIPPIES” (Rejecting “Reality”)           

John Toland:  These young people thriving on MYSTICISM and impelled by IDEALISM,  YEARNED for ACTION, – ANY KIND of action.  In the woods they would commune with nature, awaiting “messages” from the forest. A fuhrer– a popularly acclaimed leader– might read passages from Neitzsche or the poet Stefan George, who wrote: “the people and supreme wisdom yearn for the man! – the DEED! … perhaps someone who sat for years among youmurderers and slept in your prisons will stand up and do the deed!’

Hitler rejoiced that he STOLE the HEARTS and MINDS of YOUTH, transforming universities into incubators of ACTIVISM for the fatherland.  Even before the nazis seizedpower, student radicals were eager to challenge the stodgy conservatism of German higher education, which cherished classically liberal academic freedom and the authority of scholars and teachers. 

A wave of Nietzschean pragmatism swept across Europe, bringing with it a wind that BLEW AWAY the STALE DOGMAS of THEIR PARENTS’ generation,  revealinga NEW WORLD to be seen with fresh eyes.  The Nazis told young people that their ENTHUSIASM SHOULD NOT BE RESTRAINED through ACADEMIC STUDY– rather, it should be INDULGED through political ACTION.

The tradition of study for its own sake was thrown aside in the name of ‘relevance’.

Let us read no more of Jewish science and foreign abstraction, they cried … learn ofGermansand WARand what we can do for the NATION!INTUITION– which young people have in abundance – was MORE IMPORTANT THAN KNOWLEDGEand EXPERIENCE, insisted the radicals.

The Nazisbelieved that the UNIVERSITYshould be an EMPOWERING INCUBATOR of REVOLUTIONARIES.first and peddlers of abstraction a very, very distant second

In 1931, 60 % of all German undergraduates supported the Nazi student organization.

The Naziswere inspired by NIETZCHEand ROMANTICS, who believed that the spirit of the ACTi s more important than the IDEA behind it.  This was the Nazi “CULT of the DEED”.

French fascists dubbed their movementthe action francaise, putting ACTIONon an equal footing with NATION.

ACTION: The WILL to POWER  VIOLENCE-TERROR as “SOCIAL JUSTICE” 

DISGUISING DYSTOPIA –  The ENDS JUSTIFY the MEANS

“The very FIRST ESSENTIAL for SUCCESS is a perpetually constant and regular employment of VIOLENCE”;“ONLY FORCE rules. FORCE is the FIRSTLAW”   – Hitler

Jonah Goldberg: “The reason Hayek refers to the ‘MIRAGE of SOCIAL JUSTICE’ is quite simple: THERE’S NO SUCH THING”

Justice creates a CLAIM ON OTHERS … social justice is based on RIGHTS– social rights, economic rights, etc. – that CANNOT BE ENFORCED in a FREE society.

“Any man who has once proclaimed violenceas his method is inevitably forcedto take the LIE as his principle”    – Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn
“A MORAL MONOPOLY is the ANTI-THESIS of a MARKET PLACE of IDEAS” – Thomas Sowell

 Mussolini defined both socialism and fascism as “MOVEMENT, STRUGGLEandACTION

– “to LIVE is NOT to CALCULATE, but to ACT!”

Hitler MOCKED those who believed that arguments and reason should trump the NAKED POWER of the people. 

The vanguardof the revolution would be the NEW breed of SUPERMAN.  The plebs, who are EXCESSIVELY CHRISTIANIZED and HUMANITARIAN, will never understand that a higher degree of EVIL is NECESSARY so that the SUPERMAN might THRIVE.

Mussolini: The superman knows REVOLT ALONE. EVERYTHINGTHAT EXISTS MUST BE DESTROYED.

The Nazis BEAT UP storekeepers, EXTORTED businessmen and VANDALIZED property.

The Nazis were AMORAL (had no morals), except when it came to their own WILL to POWER.

ALINSKY and “REVOLUTION” (A “Chicago” Con)

“BAIT and SWITCH” – Promising Utopia – Disguising Dystopia   

SAUL ALINSKY stated he was more concerned with the acquisition of POWER than anything else

Jonah Goldberg: “Alinsky’s WORLDVIEW is strictly FASCISTIC” …  

Life is defined by WAR, CONTESTS of POWER, the IMPOSITION of WILL. 

POWER is a means (methods), disregarding the ends (results)

Alinsky advised his followers that the POOR have NO POWER. 

The REAL TARGET is America’s WHITE MIDDLE CLASS, where the POWER is.

They MANIPULATED MIDDLE CLASS GUILT and SHAME to get what they WANTED.

ALINSKY often told the story of the OLD CHICAGO SCAM where you go into the restaurant, sit in the corner, have breakfast, then secretly switch checks with the guy  who just came in for a cup of coffee.

The “SOCIAList SCAM”, the “COVET-ous CON” … MTYHS of MARXISM …

When it came to writing his dissertation, Alinsky chose to RESEARCH AL CAPONE, who  ran the city of Chicago through the police force, the mayor’s ]office and the courts.

Approaching Capone was a gutsy life move.  Once accepted into CAPONE’s MOB,

Alinsky WATCHED the PLANNING and EXECUTION of MURDERS as “an observer,” and

PARTIED with the MOB for two yearsbefore departing.

Alinsky’s retelling of the events is brash, disquieting and great cause to pause.

Alinsky’s retelling of the events is brash, disquieting and great cause to pause.

 CAMOUFLAGE was key – (Dystopia Disguised)

At first do not alienate with any type of crude language, defiant demeanor, or menacing appearance … that suggested radicalism or a disrespect for middle class mores and traditions.

“TRUE REVOLUTIONARIES DO NOT FLAUNT THEIR RADICALISM”

ALINSKY TAUGHT. THEY CUT THEIR HAIR, PUT ON SUITS and  INFILTRATE the SYSTEM FROM WITHIN.

ALINSKY VIEWED REVOLUTION as a SLOW, PATIENT PROCESS.  The trick was to PENETRATE EXISTING INSTITUTIONS such as churches, unions and political parties.

Many leftists view Hillary Cllinton as a SELL-OUT because she claims to hold moderate views on some issues.

However, Hillary is simply following Alinsky’s counsel to DO and SAY WHATEVER IT TAKES TO GAIN POWER.  

CAMOUFLAGE.  Joe Biden called Obama “articulate and bright and clean and a nice-looking guy”.

 EVENTUALLY, Alinsky noted the CHANGE in “OURREBELS”, who STIGMATIZED and REJECTED  MIDDLE CLASS LIFE AS MATERIALISTIC, DECADENT, BOURGEOIS, DEGENERATE, IMPERIALISTIC, WAR-MONGERING, BRUTALIZED and CORRUPT.”  Such are “CLINGERS” and “DEPLORABLES”.

Born to Russian-Jewish parents in Chicago,  SAUL ALINSKY (1909-72) was a labor Organizer who founded the Industrial Areas Foundation in1940, building strong citizensorganizations for POWER– ACTION – JUSTICE. 

Alinsky asserted that he was more concerned with the acquisition of POWER than anything else fascism’s appeal was in it’s “WILL TO POWER” and self-abandonment to one’sinstincts.

Alinsky’s motto was, “the  most effective means are WHATEVER will achieve the desired results. [POWER]

 Jonah Goldberg:   Alinsky’sWORLDVIEWis STRICTLY FASCISTIC. 

Life is defined by WAR, CONTESTS of POWER, the IMPOSITION of WILL

Alinsky shares with the fascists and pragmatists of yore a bedrock hostility to dogma.  All he believes in are the DESIRED ENDS of the MOVEMENT, WHICH HE REGARDS AS THESOURCE OF LIFE’S MEANING.

Alinsky stated, “changemeans movement. Movement means friction.  Only in the frictionless vacuum of a nonexistent abstract world can movement or change occur without that abrasive friction of conflict,

What comes through is his UNBRIDLED LOVE of POWER. Power is a good in its own rightfor Alinsky.

“OUR is a WORLD NOTof ANGELSBBUT of ANGLES; MEN SPEAK of MORAL PRINCIPLES BUT ACTON POWER PRINCIPLES”Saul Alinsky, ‘Rules for Radicals”:

In the Alinsky model, “ORGANIZING” is a euphemism for “REVOLUTION“, a wholesale “revolution” whose ULTIMATE OBJECTIVE is the systematic acquisition of POWER.

In Alinsky’s brand of SOCIAL WARFARE, the ENDS JUSTIFY WHATEVER MEANS are required in “the GREAT CAUSE”.  Once you accept your own death, all of a sudden you’re free to live. You no longer care about your reputation. you no longer care except so far as your lifecan be usedtactically to promote a cause you believe in.“– Alinsky

Since the here and now is all there is, anything was “moral” in the pursuit of worldly power

Alinsky believed in SACRIFICING ETHICSand MORALS FOR the GREAT CAUSE – “ethical standards must be elastic to stretch with the times”

“My aim here is to suggest how to ORGANIZE for POWER: how to get it and how to use it

LIFE is a CORRUPTING PROCESS from the time A CHILD LEARNS to  PLAY HIS MOTHER OFF AGAINST HIS FATHER in the politics of when to go to bed

 “he who fears corruption fears life.”

“to say that corrupt means corrupt the ends is to believe in the immaculate conception of ends and principles. thereal arena is corrupt andbloody– Saul D. Alinsky, Rules for Radicals

Alinsky’s book “Rules for Radicals” is a “handbook” for social revolution “The Prince by Machiavelli was written for the HAVES on how to HOLD POWER.  This book is written forthe have not’s and  how to take it away.  Alinsky helped establish the tactics of conflictandconfrontationof the “turbulent” 1960s.  Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama and  Cesar Chavez wereAlinsky “disciples”.

hillary clinton’s under-graduate thesis paper was on alinsky’s methods

hilary clinton declined alinsky’s request to work with him, going to law school instead

barack obama was trained by Chicago’s industrial areas foundation

In his native Chicago, Alinsky courted POWER wherever he found it.  His alliance with prominent Catholic clerics, such as Bishop Bernard Sheil, gave him respectability.   His friendship with CRIME BOSSES such as Frank Nitti  – Al Capone’s second-in-command –  gave Alinsky CLOUT on the street.

“I am freeingman from the RESTRAINTS of  intelligence  and a degrading … FALSE VISION called CONSCIENCE and MORALITY”  – Hitler

”To the questioner, nothing is sacred.he detests dogma, defies any finite definition of morality,rebels against any repression of a free, open search of ideas no matter where they

may lead. he is CHALLENGING, INSULTING, AGITATING, DISCREDITING.

HE STIRS UNREST”   – Saul Alinsky

Withouta moral framework, there is nothing left but immediate self-indulgenceby someand the path of least resistance by others. Neithercan sustaina FREE society”  – Thomas Sowell

THERE were NO DISTINCTIONS between GOOD and EVIL when it came to TRANSFERRING POWER rom the HAVES to the HAVE NOTS

In Alinsky’s view, ACTIONwas more often the catalyst for REVOLUTIONARYFERVOR than vice versa.  The idea that the MASSES must be ROUSEDfrom their doldrumsis centralto fascism. The ORGANIZER needed to get people to ACT FIRSTand RATIONALIZE THEIR ACTIONS LATER.  Peopleraised from passive acceptance of the “machine” ofbourgeois Democracy.

Alinsky readily admitted that he DID NOT TRUST the PEOPLE themselves.

“It is the SCHIZOPHRENIA of a FREE society that we outwardly espouse faith in the people, but inwardly have strong doubts whether the people can be trusted”

Alinsky warned against an “attempt to answer all objections on the basis of  LOGIC and MERIT… with few exceptions this is a FUTILE procedure.” i.e. appeal to “LOGIC” is USELESS and COUNTER-PRODUCTIVE

The organizer needed to get people to ACT FIRST and RATIONALIZE their actions LATER– “get them to move in the right direction first,” said Alinsky.

They’ll EXPLAIN to THEMSELVES LATER WHY they moved in that direction.

“Society has good reason to FEAR the RADICAL. Every shaking advance of mankind toward equality and justice has come from the radical. He hits,hurts, he is DANGEROUS”                              

“Conservative interests know that while liberals are most adept at BREAKING THEIR OWN NECKS with their tongues, radicals are most adept at BREAKING the NECKS of CONSERVATIVES.”   – Saul Alinsky, Reveille for Radicals

 Action: The Will toPOWER– VIOLENCE-TERROR as “SOCIAL JUSTICE”- Promising Utopia – Disguising Dystopia 

Georges Sorel, the French engineer turned intellectual, pioneered the idea that the MASSES needed MYTHSto be moved to ACTION.  Recognizing that Marxism, like all social science,rarely panned out in real life, Sorel MARRIED William James’ WILL TO BELIEVE to  Nietzsche’sWILL to POWER and applied them to MASS PSYCHOLOGY.

Revolutionaries did not need to understand the REALITY of Marxism: they needed to believe in the MYTH of Marxism (or nationalism, syndicalism, fascism, and so on)

Jonah Goldberg:  To concern oneself with social science is one thing and to mold consciousness is another” – PASSION, NOT FACTS, was the FUEL for ACTION.  Mussolini said “reason is a TOOL, but it can NEVER be the MOTIVE force of a crowd.

The indictment of reason, the populist appeals to defeating “the system”, the table thumping for a new volk-centric community that would replace capitalism with a more organic and TOTALITARIAN approach.

THERE were NO LIMITATIONS to FASCIST AMBITIONS:

“I am FREEING man from the RESTRAINTS of  intelligence and a degrading …

        FALSE VISION called CONSCIENCE and MORALITY”  – Hitler

The dream of aUNIFIED, CLASSLESS Germany was deeply heartfelt by many Nazi joiners

Anything endangering the utopian progress of the collective must be “acted” against  in “appropriate” fashion.

The VERY FIRST ESSENTIAL FOR SUCCESS is a PERPETUALLY CONSTANT and REGULAR EMPLOYMENT of VIOLENCE to HERETICS AGAINST the FASCIST,COLLECTIVE CRUSADE.

Jonah Goldberg: “Just as the line between good totalitarianism and bad is easily crossed, “dreams can quickly become nightmares.  Whatever admirable idealismthey mighthave had quickly andunavoidably turned into FASCIST THUGGERY.”

The Nazis first APPEARED AS “LIBERATORS” in the countries they “conquered” until their “nature” revealed itself.  The hope and future ofAmerica lies with its radicals

saul alinsky: “this is the job for today’s radical —   to fan … HOPELESSNESS into a flame to fight” towards “change”.  “CHANGE”? – Promising Utopia – Disguising Dystopia   

“By the skillful and sustained use of propaganda, one can make a PEOPLE SEE EVEN HEAVEN AS HELL or an extremely WRETCHED LIFEas PARADISE” – Hitler

Socialismin generalhas a record of FAILURE so blatant that only an intellectual could ignore or evade it  – Thomas Sowell                                                                                                                                                             One of the common failingsamong honorable peopleis a failureto appreciate how thoroughly dishonorable some other people can be, and how dangerousit is to trust them.                   – Thomas Sowell

ADOLESCENT TEMPER TANTRUMS

“At the core of liberalism is the SPOILED CHILD– MISERABLE, as all spoiled children are, UNSATISFIED, DEMANDING, ILL-DISCIPLINED, DESPOTIC and USELESS.                                                   Liberalism is a PHILOSOPHY of  SNIVELING BRATS.   –  P.J. O’Rourke

“To do EVIL a human being must FIRST of all believe that what he’s doing is GOOD” – Solzhenitsyn

FASCIST YOUTH (a.k.a. Totalitarian Terrorist Twits)

FASCISTS GLORIFY CRIME as POLITICAL “PROTEST” (“Social Justice”)

I would like to call upon AMERICA to be more careful with its TRUST… and prevent those … because of short-sightedness and still others out of self-interest, from FALSELY USING the STRUGGLE FOR PEACE and FOR SOCIAL JUSTICE to lead you down a FALSE ROAD.

Because they are TRYING to WEAKEN you; they are trying to DISARM your strong and magnificent country in the face of this fearful threat. … I call upon you: ordinary working men of America … DO NOT LET YOURSELVES BECOME WEAK”.   –Solzhenitzyn

TOM  HAYDEN was the son of middle-class parents in Detroit.

Hayden played a role in the early1960s civil rights struggle in the south.  At college, Hayden would become a radical revolutionary leader.

His 1962 “manifesto” student social action proclaimed that youth must wrest control of society from their elders universities had to become incubators of revolutionary social action     ACTION = REVOLUTION   ACTION = VIOLENCE

use of action (violence and “terror”) towards “justice”

Colleague Richard Flacks told his wife, “i’ve just seen the next lenin!”

Lenin: “There’s NO REVOLUTION possible WITHOUT TERRORthe BREAKING of EGGS is NECESSARY to MAKE an OMELLETTE

“TERROR” as an expression of the“WILL TO POWER”, MASKED as “social justice”

HAYDEN became an advocate of “Leninist” VIOLENCE and MAYHEM,   GLORIFYING CRIME as POLITICAL REBELLION. 

These CHILDREN of WEALTH WORSHIPPED MEN of VIOLENCE, and SANITIZED THEM – Che, Mao, Fidel, Carlos the Jackal, Ayers, Mumiah, the list goes on.

Hayden stated.  I’ve had been FASCINATED by the simplicity and power of the MOLOTOV COCKTAIL”.

Hayden openly supported Mao, Ho chi minh and the Black Panthers.

Hayden helped write the “Berkeley Liberation Program”.

It declared “all OPPRESSED people in jail are political PRISONERS and must be “SET FREE”.

Fascist “revolutionary” movements  often blurred the difference between crimeand political rebellion.

“The futureof our struggle is the future of CRIMEin the streets”  – Tom Hayden

The only way to “revolutionize youth” was to have “a series of LIFE and DEATH CONFLICTS”.  Fascist violencewas based on the cult of unreason, lust for action, and craving for “authenticity”.

HAYDEN was a “MODERATE”, according to MARK RUDD, leader of the 1968 Columbia University student “protest” … Rudd’s rallying cry was “up against the wall, motherf###er!”,which he used against teachers and administrators.  Rudd explained, “nothing upsets our enemies more than this slogan” “to them it showed how far we had SUNKto brutality, hatred and obsenity. great!”

“COMPROMISE is NOT ALLOWED anymore … we are out for social and political REVOLUTION, NOTHING LESS”. – MARK RUDD, leader of Columbia U. takeover

 “I always held my flower in a clenched fist– Abbie Hoffman

Fascists GLORIFY CRIME in the NAME of “SOCIAL JUSTICE”. 

Fascists have a FASCINATION with VIOLENCE and “CRIME” as “SOCIAL PROTEST”.

                         

What many progressives call SOCIAL JUSTICE is NEITHER very SOCIAL NOR JUST, especially as concerns economics.

It is a VISION that CALLS OUT, NOT FOR JUSTICE, but for PAYBACK.

 GLORIFYING CRIME as POLITICAL REBELLION.

Johan Goldberg: Bernardine Dohrn reflected the widespread new left FASCINATION with the SERIAL-KILLING HIPPIE ubermensch CHARLES MANSON.

Abbie Hoffman set out to CREATE a ‘vast MYTH’of bloodshed and shock.

“WE WILL BURN CHICAGO to the GROUND’ – the intent was to FORCECONFRONTATIONthat would SPILL BLOOD in the streets”That VIOLENCEwas CENTRALto FASCISM is often an exaggerated point.  Violence hasbeen ESSENTIALto NEARLY ALLREVOLUTIONARY MOVEMENTS.

Forcing mainstream liberals to CHOOSE SIDES on the assumption that most would followtheir sympathies to the left was the only way Hayden and others could usher in their revolution

This was what they meant by ‘BRINGING the WAR HOME’”

Saul Alinsky shared the fascist contempt for liberals as corrupted bourgeois prattlers:  

‘Liberals in their meetings utter bold WORDS… and then issue a WEASEL-WORDED Statement judging both sides; they sit and still sit.”

“Society has good reason to FEAR the RADICAL. Every shaking advance of mankind toward equality and justice has come from the radical. He hits,hurts, he is DANGEROUS”

those who agreed with their cause.

Convinced that all whites were born tainted with the original sin of ‘skin privilege’, the fighting brigade of the new left internalized racialist thinking as hatred of their own whiteness.

On one occasion the feminist poet Robin Morgan was breast feeding her son at the offices of the radical journal RAT.  A weatherman saw this and told her,‘YOU HAVE NO RIGHT to HAVE THAT PIG MALE BABY’.

‘how can you say that? “, morgan asked.  ‘What should I do?  PUT IT in the GARBAGE’, the weatherwoman answered.

Mark Rudd eventually joined the “Weather Underground” –“we are a guerilla organization” revolutionarywar against the U.S. government and the capitalist system should begin immediately … to achieve “the destruction of u.s. imperialism and the achievement of a CLASSLESS WORLD: WORLD COMMUNISM

From September, 1969 to may, 1970, “radicals” committed about 250 BOMB ATTACKSin the U.S. during the summer of 1970, there were 20 BOMBINGS a WEEK in California.

“It must be a WONDERFUL feeling to KILL a PIG or BLOW UP a BUILDING– Mark Rudd

“The YOUTHmust WREST CONTROL of society from their ELDERS” – Tom Hayden

BERNARDINE DOHRN, was a LSD loving law student turned weather underground Revolutionary.

Dorhn celebrated the murderous “hippies from hell” – the Charles  Manson “family”. 

 Sharon Tate was the pregnant actress killed by the Manson family.

The pregnant  tate was stabbed to death by the Manson family, who also killed Leno and Rosemary LaBianca.

Pat Krenwinkel CARVED the WORD “WAR” INTO LENO’s STOMACH, then stabbed him a number of times and left a CARVING FORK protruding from his STOMACH and a knife from his throat.

Bernardine Dohrn: “DIG IT! first they KILLED those pigs, then they ate dinner in the same room with them, they even shoved a fork into a victim’s stomach!” WILD!”

In appreciation, Dohrn’s Weather Underground cell made a THREE-FINGERED“FORK” GESTURE into its OFFICIAL SALUTE.

Dohrn’s husband WILLIAM AYERS helped co-found the Weather Underground.

In 1970, Ayers explained what the Weather Underground was all about: “KILL ALL the RICH PEOPLE

Ayers grew up in a suburb of Chicago, graduated from a small prep school and the University of Michigan, his FATHER a CEO of Commonwealth Edison. (1973 to 1980)

Break up their cars and apartments. Bring the revolution home, KILL YOUR PARENTS,   that’s where it’s really at”.

Ayers participated in the  DAYS of RAGE RIOTin Chicago in 1969, and was at the  “WAR COUNCIL” meeting in Flint, Michigan.

They began a VIOLENT, ARMED STRUGGLE   (e.g., bombings andarmed ROBBERIES)  AGAINST the state without attempting to organize or mobilize a broad swath of the public.

Bill Ayers was the chief “theorist” of the weather underground.  He participated in the bombings of New York City Police headquarters (1970), the U.S. Capitol building (1971)and the Pentagon(1972).  Ayers, Dohrn or the Weathermen were connected to but not charged or convicted for the fatal 1970 San Francisco Police Department park station bombing.

Ayers became involved in the  Students For a Democratic Society (SDS),rising to national prominence as an SDS leader in 1968 and 1969.  As head of an SDS regional group, The “Jesse James gang”,  Ayers made decisive contributions to the weatherman orientationtoward MILITANCY. 

The group Ayers headed became  The Weatherman.  Ayers became a prominent leader of the group, which arose as a result of a schism in SDS.

During that time AYER’S INFATUATION with  STREET FIGHTING  grew and he developed a LANGUAGE of CONFRONTATIONAL MILITANCY that became more andmore pronounced over the year [1969]. 

Later in 1969, Ayers participated in planting a bomb at a statue dedicated to police casualties in the 1886 Haymarket Square riots between labor and the Chicago police.  The blast broke almost 100 windows and blew pieces of the statue onto the nearby Kennedy expressway.

In 1970, Weatherman Ted Gold, Ayers’ close friend Terry Robbins, and Ayers’ girlfriend, Diana Oughton were killed when a nail bomb being assembled in the house exploded.

An FBI informant stated that “Ayers, along with Dohrn, probably had the most authority within the Weatherman”.

Ayers contended, “IT’s NOT TERRORISM BECAUSE IT DOESN‘T TARGET PEOPLE… to EITHER KILL OR INJURE”

WHAT were NAIL BOMBS MEANT to DO THEN?

JOHN MURTAGH was a child in 1970 when The Underground placed BOMBS  UNDERNEATH the GAS TANKof the FAMILY CAR, at the HOMEof his judge father.

Murtagh’s father presided over a case where the defendants, members of the black panther party, were accused of plotting to bomb a department store and landmarks in New York City.

They left three sentences of blood-red graffiti on our sidewalk: free the panther 21; the Viet Cong have won;  KILL the PIGS.

In a New York Daily News op-ed on April 30, 2008, Murtagh wrote, I was only 9 then, the year AYERS’ WEATHERMEN TRIEDto MURDER ME.

Murtaugh did skeptically wonder, “How can a sophisticated academic like yourself believe that the INHERENT RECKLESSNESS of EXPLODING BOMBS … that you know too well killed three of your own –  you know the potential for deadliness there.” 

“WE WEREN’T TERRORISTS,” Ayers told an interviewer for the Chicago Tribunein 2001

“The reason we weren’t terrorists is because we did not commit random acts of terror against People.  Terrorism was what was being practiced in the countryside of Vietnam by the United States”,  The New York Timesreporter quoted him as saying.

“I DON’T REGRET SETTING BOMBS” and “I FEEL WE DIDN’T DO ENOUGH“.

In the ensuing years, Ayers has repeatedly avowed that he had “NO REGRETS” and that “WE DIDN’T DO ENOUGH” he was speaking only in reference to his efforts to stop the U.S. from waging the Vietnam War, efforts which he has described as “. . . inadequate [as] thewar dragged on for a decade”.

Ayers has maintained that the two statements were not intended to imply a wish they had set more bombs.  In a November, 2008 interview with The New Yorker, Ayers said that he had notmeant to imply that he wished he and the weathermen had committed further acts of violence.

Instead, he said, “I wish I had done more,but it doesn’t mean  I wish we’d bombed more shit”

Ayers said that he had never been responsible for violence against other people and was actingto end a war in vietnam in which “thousands of people were being killed every week”

He also stated,   “While we did claim several extreme acts, they were acts of extreme radicalism against property,” and “we killed … and hurt no one”.

ayers: “Three of our people killed themselves.” (building bombs)

“It must be a wonderful feeling to kill pig or blow up a building” – mark rudd

Ayers was asked in a January, 2004 interview, “how do you feel about what you did?  Would you do it again under similar circumstances?”

Being almost 60, it’s impossible to not have lots and lots of regrets about lots and lots of things, …but the question of did we do something that was HORRENDOUS, AWFUL?

  “I DON’T THINK SO.  I think what we did was to respond to a situation that was unconscionable.

Ayers, his wife Bernardine Dohrn and other W.U.O. figures WERE NOT PROSECUTED because of ALLEGED FBI MISCONDUCT while investigating the foreign influence indomestic terrorism.  At the end of Ayers book  Fugitive Days,he writes that

HE is “GUILTY as HELL, FREE as a BIRD – IT’s a GREAT COUNTRY”

Peter Collier: “The part that I think is outrageous has very little to do with her,” he says.

It’s Northwestern and it’s Macarthurand it’s the bar.  What it shows me … really hit a nervehere on this notion of the CULTURAL ELITE”.

The idea that these people would protect and enhance the reputation of this VICIOUS, BLOODY-MINDED WOMAN who is kind of theLADY MACBETHof the movement.  This is an amazing thing and it could happen only on the left.

In Destructive Generation, Collier recounts a chance meeting between Dohrn and Mark Rudd, another radical leader who’d also been underground for a time.

SHE [Dohrn] ASKED HIM [RUDD] WHAT HE THOUGHT ABOUT the WHOLE EXPERIENCE,” Collier writes.

He told her that he thought of it as seven years of WASTED LIFE;   that neither he nor they had accomplished anything, and he wished he’d gotten out at the beginning.

“I couldn’t believe the rhetoric. The SAME OLD SHIT.”

I just said to myself, ‘oh, later for you, lady,’ and TOOK OFF.  

She got furious [Rudd recounts] and said:”but what about the contribution we  made to the  overall struggle for armed struggle and revolution in America?”

Later on it occurred to me how HER EGO was still totally involved with all that DEAD HISTORY.

How LITTLE SHE HAD LOOKED AT HERSELF all those years.

She should have had to ADMIT HOW WRONG HER IDEAS WERE, HOW MESHUGA HER SELF-CONCEPTION WAS”

Rudd: “A great revolutionary leader? she had NOGREAT REVOLUTIONARY IDEAS.

NONE OF US DID.  She was JUST the daughter of a credit manager of a Milwaukee furniture  store‘.

Her brother-in-law john ayers, adds, “I DON’T THINK SHE’S ASHAMED IN ANY WAY.  She continues to have a radical view of American society.

For Ayers, certainly, it was a return to the turf [Chicago] that HIS FATHER had once dominated as a LEADER of the ESTABLISHMENT”

Tom Ayers was ‘a big, monster-sized executive, and a very, very genuinely nice man with a SOCIAL CONSCIENCE,’ says Chicago newspaper columnist Mike Royko.  For years, Billhad been a source of great anguish. John Ayers says of his father, “he was a socially conscious business guy, very involved in integration, very pro-integration and change in the cities.  It wasrough on them.  It was a difficult time.”

In 1970, son Bill Ayers explained what the Weather Underground was all about: “KILL all the  RICH people… break up their cars and apartments. bring the revolution home, KILL YOUR PARENTS, that’s where it’s really at”.

“I used to joke with him, you know, ‘Bill’s risen to the top of his field‘.’ By all accounts, father and son worked things out between them.  Bill ayers is a retired professor in the College of Eduation at the University of Illinois at Chicago.   Ayers’ focus – elementary school education.

fascist obsessionwith youth– “empowering” youth through “community outreach” 

Mike Royko: “They came from a background of being RICH KIDS, where apparently tantrums would get them what they wanted”.And they wanted IMMEDIATE GRATIFICATION and SOCIAL CHANGE

IMMATURE, SELF-DESTRUCTIVE and SELF-INDULGENT “CHILDREN” WHO THREW “TEMPER TANTRUMS” AGAINST “REALITY” and “REASON”

TOTALITARIAN TERRORISTS and TWITS …

VIOLENCE for a COLLECTIVE “CAUSE LARGER THAN OURSELVES (“social IN-justice”)

P.S.

FASCISM: Then and TODAY –

“PROLOGUE”

FASCISM seeks COLLECTIVE “salvation”, eventually producing a TOTALITARIAN society of ONE, single, “organic” “WHOLE” benefiting ALL, COMPLETE CONFORMITY allowing no “separateness”.

Fascism promises UTOPIA through THIS-worldly political “REBIRTH”, redemption and realization of “meaning”, “solutions” to never ending “CRISIS”, overcome with revolutionary “CRUSADES” of “ACTION” of “social justice” based on their own “WILL to POWER”, instincts and feelings, which typically produce reactionary tantrums by “heretics” who seek limitations on their power and/or critically question fascist utopian lack of “reason”, “reality” and/or DYSTOPIAN RESULTS. (“tragic” UNintended consequences)

Totalitarian, all powerful GOD-STATES use political-religion to promise “heaven on earth”.Mussolini said “fascism IS a religion”. Fascists purposely mix and confuse politics and religion, Government and God, co-opting “God” in their pursuit of political POWER, a POLITICAL RELIGION OF government idol worship.

The sheep-like masses, contemptible “clingers” and “deplorables”, require leadership by an elite “enlightened” political governing ruling class and/or messianic “CULT of PERSONALITY” (“gods” IN government).

Contemptuous of freedom and democratic self-government,the “god OF government” seeks to SOCIALLY ENGINEER utopian “political paradise” through “science” and an evolutionary “Cult of “Progress”.

A utopian FUTURE requires INDOCTRINATION of YOUTH and CENSORSHIP of anything contradicting politically correct conformity, preventing eventual totalitarian control on ALL aspects of society, propagated and proselytized by elite media “priests” and educational “seminaries”.

Utopian idealism requires total elimination of anything old & corrupt, erasing past history, destroying politically INcorrect dogmas, and/or persecuting non-utopian “heretics” (“tragic” realist “phobes”) which question and PREVENT the “CULT of PROGRESS” and necessary transformational change “we can ALL believe in”.

FASCISM Rubric: #1-The Collective #2-Rebirth #3-Crisis & Crusade #4-Action #5-Politics as Religion #6-Contempt for Democracy #7-The Cult of Personality #8-Social Engineering #9-Youth #10-Censorship #11- Fascist Economics

FASCISM DEFINED – a Rubric

Fascism #1) COMMUNITY and the “COLLECTIVE”
Fascism is a quest for community – the collective “ it takes a VILLAGE”. Fascism seeks UNIFORMITYand CONFORMITYthrough collectiveCRUSADE, collective political religion – the god of government and state, sacrificing individual freedoms to secure collective “UTOPIA”. Fascism is hostile to anything outside the collective – the individual, a potential “heretic” or enemy of the state or FAMILY, anything that might resist their “CULT” of collective “PROGRESS”.A TOTALITARIANsociety is one ORGANIC whole – your home, private thoughts, everything no realm of human life (from food, sex, entertainment)NOTHING is beyond collective POLITICAL meaning. Mob manipulation, control and conformity, censorship, propaganda and indoctrination all produce an “organic” collective political “CORRECTNESS”,tolerating NO islands of SEPARATENESS.

#2 – “REBIRTH”
Fascism promises“rebirth”, expressed as a revolutionary FAITH in thefuture, towards a utopianNEW age.  The CULT of “PROGRESS”, “CHANGE”and the possibilities of TRANSFORMATION is invokedA“NEW” man, earth & society, building “earthly paradise” is possible.  Fascists  “IMAGINE” or RE-INVENT REALITY, which is viewed as EXTERIOR “SOCIAL CONSTRUCTS” that can be“RE-MADE”.  Utopian “redemption” is gained by destroyingthe past. It is pathologically necessary to reject and deconstruct the old to build the new.

#3) CRISIS-CRUSADE: MOBILIZING SOCIETY like an ARMY
A core value of crisis is the imposition of WAR valueson society. The sense of crisis and CRUSADE brings conformity, regimentation and unity of purpose that mobilizes people into progressive action. Crisis is a TOOLfor “progress”. Crisis-conflict-struggle prohibits ordinary rules of behavior. Crisis-conflict-struggle provides “opportunity” that is to create UNITY of “CRUSADE” (“holy” war),requiring (not “wasting”) re-organization of the collective towards building utopian paradise in its “holy war”. CONFORMITYis ensured by mobilizing MOBS– totalitarian TERRORclaimed as “SOCIAL JUSTICE”, a EXTRA-ORDINARY CAUSE against CONSPIRACY by “the ENEMY”to destroy “progress” and “utopia” of the secular “god-state”.

#4: “ACTION” – The “WILL to POWER
“Action” becomes a “romantic”REBELLION AGAINST “REASON”,often the glorification of VIOLENCEand TERROR, a “WILL to POWER” engaged towards “progress” and “holy” cause – SOCIAL JUSTICE, commanding politically correct, totalitarian conformity, by ANY MEANS NECESSARY. Fascist community, cause and crisis all UNITE into action – CRUSADE. (e.g. state sponsored propaganda, scapegoating, witch-hunts). “HERETICAL” THINKING becomes a “HATE CRIME” that must be terrorized and terminated, before the “cancer” spreads. Terror and “HUMAN SACRIFICE” both cleanses “in-organic” impurities and promotes fascist unity of the “organic” whole. The Cult of “Action” pits “FEELING” VS “FACTS”.Fascists are consumed by PASSION, FEELINGS, EMOTION and the WILL and POWER – the ENDS JUSTIFY the MEANS. “Action” often becomes a TEMPER TANTRUM, an adolescent expression of the WILL to POWER against “adult” logic, reason and wisdom, crusade against the traditional, corrupt, un-holy pastexpressed in the “CULT of YOUTH”. A SPOILED CHILD is despot-ic, never satisfied, intolerant, uncompromising, useless and “clue-less”.
Once “enemy” opposition is actively crushed, the fascist “revolution” then usually “EATS its OWN” in its own BLOOD-LUST and insatiable, never ending WILL to POWER.

#5) POLITICS (the State) a RELIGION:Totalitarian Heaven On Earth
The fascist state becomes the MONSTER “LEVIATHAN”: GOD & GOVERNMENT become ONE – MIXING secular & sacred.
The CITY-STATEtakes on “ULTIMATE MEANING”(becomes “god”).  POLITICAL IDOL-ATRY brings utopian “RE-BIRTH” and “COLLECTIVE SALVATION“.  “Fascism is a Religion” – Mussolini Fascist government is an expression of UTOPIAN “FAITH” in SECULAR “SALVATION”, the creation of “HEAVEN ON EARTH” through the CULT of political “PROGRESS”.  Fascism CO-OPTS, COMPROMISES, then SUBORDINATES traditional religion, towards STATE SUPREMACY OVER CHURCH. Freedom of conscience is sacrificed for fascist conformity. It is NATION WORSHIP– government “realizes” meaning and “fulfillment”. “Heretics” do/can not PURSUE happiness – the State PROVIDES it.
Ironically, the individual SACRIFICES “SELF” in the TRIBAL “IDOLATRY” of the totalitarian state-polis, in an act of ultimate political “self-WORSHIP”.

#6 – CONTEMPT for DEMOCRACY
FASCISM generally is a REACTION against DYSFUNCTIONAL and “MESSY” democracy, a REACTION against“democracy gone mad”that resulted in “dystopia”. Fascists presented a “THIRD WAY” – TRANSCENDING“selfish, corrupt” politics of “rights” that ignored collective “responsibilities”, a SUPERIORform of social organization BEYONDpopular, elected self-government, promising to be more democratic than parliamentary representative republican-ism, providing people’s wants without having them vote for it.

#7 – The “GREAT”LEADER – CULT of PERSONALITY
Fascist leadership is based on the idea of an ELITE who KNOWS what the people NEED, NOT what they WANT. The “great leader” is the AUTHORITY or “FATHER” who “knows BEST/BETTER” than the ruled know themselves. Not responsible to an electorate, “great” rulers understood and represented the “will” of the people and nation (the “ruled”). A Cult of Personality uses rhetoric and propaganda to exaggerate the importance, necessity & CONTROL of the leader.  The “promise” – “PROGRESS”;the “price”- “sell your soul”. (hiding a will to POWER – “FOOLED AGAIN” by “BAIT and SWITCH”? (confusing “progress” and POWER, PUBLIC good with PERSONAL gain/interest).  The DEMOGOGUE is the master MANIPULATOR and “IDOL” of the political MASSES.

#8 – SOCIAL ENGINEERING
An all-powerful (totalitarian) state GOVERNMENT CO-ORDINATES “PROGRESS”.  “SCIENCE”and SOCIAL planning PROMISE to “IMPROVE” the human condition.
“REDEMPTION” and “SALVATION” could only be achieved collectively by all-powerful (TOTALITARIAN) state GOVERNMENT, BUREAUCRACY being superior to “dysfunctional” democracy, POWER CONCENTRATED in “SUPERIOR” government ELITES).  “SCIENTIFIC” social engineering has a UTOPIAN “FAITH” in “MODERNITY” and the
PERFECT-ibility of HUMANITY towards “progress”, the POSSIBILITY of earthly utopian “paradise”. Final “SOLUTIONS” to humanity’s seeming “tragic” limitations and stubborn, never-ending “PROBLEMS”.  FAITH in “FIXING” the PAST – RE-CREATING the “FUTURE”.

#9) OBSESSION with YOUTH (CULT)
The CULT of CHILD is the fascist quest for the NEW MAN and society THROUGH the CHILDREN, where ALL feel the warm and loving embrace of the god-state, which starts from the CRADLE until the GRAVE. Children were the UTOPIAN FUTURE.  Hitler required and sought a REVOLT AGAINST REASON for “[i]ntellect has poisoned our people”. Hitler rejoiced that he STOLE the hearts and minds of youth, transforming universities into incubators of non-critical activism for the Fatherland.  CAMOUFLAGE was KEY – do and say whatever it takes to gain POWER. The youthMUST WREST CONTROL (POWER) of society from their elders.Schools become INCUBATORS of REVOLUTIONARY SOCIAL ACTION, REJECTINGthe “cold logic”of their PARENTSand “CORRUPT” TRADITIONS of society PAST.  Youthful “genius” and “originality” was superior to ‘old”, traditional WISDOM. Utopian Political CORRECTNESS would “CURE” the CORRUPTIONof the dystopian PAST. The Youth would lead unto collective “SALVATION”.

#10 – Fascist CENSORSHIP
Censorship, government limits and CONTROL of INFORMATION is required towards “desired” state-group goals. Expression resisting group “progress”, disagreement and/or dissent against desired, “POLITICALLY CORRECT” goals of the state, must be ELIMINATED. Anything outside or in opposition to god-state “orthodoxy” was HERETICAL.   State control of media and education is used to STIFLE DISSENT and DEBATEand promote orthodoxy and conformity state-dictated utopian goals.  Building utopia does not tolerate “competition” – heretical “conspiracy” and “crisis” required “action” (censorship) to PROTECT the political collective FAITH in “PROGRESS.Political correctness and MOB conformity (e.g. scapegoating, demonizing, “witch hunts“) stops debate/division, to ensure uniformity, control & conformity.

#11 – Fascist ECONOMICS
Fascists seek non-Marxist SOCIALISM – a STATE DOMINATED economy, a “THIRD WAY” for the ‘forgotten man’ and masses BETWEEN the “selfish/chaotic” dogma of “free market” CAPITALISM and the impersonal, cruel and unforgiving command economy of COMMUNISM. The FASCIST (Faust-ian?) BARGAIN promised STABILITY and “SECURITY” in exchange for absolute SUBSERVIENCEand loyalty to the purposes of the fascist STATE, which eventually dominates BOTH politics (“the people”) and economics (business), An ingenious, devious and deceptive “BAIT and SWITCH”, fascist big government RHETORICALLY claims CLASS WARFARE, “protecting” the masses from rich “fat cats”, while in REALITY COLLUDING with big business, using CRONY-CAPITALISM to limit risk, chaos and competition from small business competitors. 

Unlike communism, profit is allowed. The state dispenses favors for the “public good”, picking “winners and losers” in it’s collective political “will to power”.   CORPORATE, big business sells out FREEDOM in exchange for SECURITY– accepting state regulation, domination and control in return for guaranteed profits and “protection” from the small-scale, common “forgotten man” and free market competition. This is done despite the rhetoric of the POPULIST “PROTECTION” against “fat cats”. (e.g. “Main Street” vs “Wall Street”) The fascist state DIVIDES and CONQUERS both MASSES and BIG-CORPORATED BUSINESS by MANIPULATING BOTH AGAINST EACH OTHER.

The fascist state creates and promotes the very thing it professesto be against. We are “Fooled AGAIN”.
