Fascism in America - by Stephen Lendman
America's lurching fast toward full-blown tyranny.
In 1932, Mussolini declared the 20th century a "Fascist century," saying:
"It is to be expected that this century may be that of authority, a century of the "Right," a Fascist century." He claimed it would "sav(e) Western civilization." For what he didn't explain.
Post-WW I, Fascim's roots emerged. At the time, Western civilization was thought to be decadent, destructive, and in decline.
In his book titled, "The Decline of the West," Oswald Spengler said "liberalism, democracy, socialism (and) free-masosnry" weakened it. Only fascism could save it.
In his essay titled, "Fascism: Doctrine and Institutions," Mussolini said, "Fascism denies, in democracy, the absurd conventional untruth of political equality dressed out in the garb of collective responsibility."
He called it the "complete opposite" of Marxist belief in class struggle as the driving force for social progress and justice. He said "(f)ascism should more appropriately be called Corporatism because it is a merger of State and corporate power."- Advertisement -
His definition applies now. Corporatism's alliance with political Washington reflects his ideology. It's been building for decades.
