Facism

What is Facism and Why Should We Care.

To start the conversation, below are some definitions of facism.

Fascism (/ˈfæʃɪzəm/) is a form of far-right, authoritarian ultranationalism characterized by dictatorial power, forcible suppression of opposition, and strong regimentation of society and of the economy which came to prominence in early 20th-century Europe.



Fascism is a form of government that is a type of one-party dictatorship. They work for a totalitarian one-party state. This aim is to prepare the nation for armed conflict, and to respond to economic difficulties. Fascism puts nation and often race above the individual.

Common themes among fascist movements include; nationalism (including racial nationalism), hierarchy and elitism, militarism, quasi-religion, masculinity and voluntarism. Other aspects of fascism such as its "myth of decadence", anti‐egalitarianism and totalitarianism can be seen to originate from these ideas.

The differences are non-essential: fascism is racial statism and communism is statism of economic class. Communism advocates the abolition of private property; socialism advocates government ownership of the means of production.Nov 13, 2013

What is Facism - John Stanley, some excerpts below show why facism is something we should care about.  Or rather, the ever increasing use of force and dominance in place of co-operation and empowerment.  The former eroding freedom and the later enhancing it.

... And my book identifies the various techniques that fascists tend to adopt, and shows how someone can be more fascist or less fascist in their politics. The key thing is that fascist politics is about identifying enemies, appealing to the in-group (usually the majority group), and smashing truth and replacing it with power.

... there are dangerous forms of extremism on both sides, but fascism tilts pretty heavily to the right in my view

..just as extreme versions of communism suppress liberty on behalf of radical equality, so too do extreme versions of right-wing politics, namely fascism, suppress liberty in favor of tradition and dominance and power.
