Red Blogule to neo-fascists - LET'S FACE IT THEY'RE FASCISTS

Archives 20040527-0602 (see blogules 2004)

(Disinfopedia discussion about the definition of "neo-cons" - "formerly liberals, now conservatives" ? should they be called "imperialists" instead ?)

"Neo" is too positive a prefix for such a medieval mob. Strangely enough, the "neo-cons" hate the liberals just like the Nazis hated (among too many others) the socialists and communists. And the word "Nazi" comes from National Socialism...

As far as I'm concerned, I'd dub them "fascists" rather than "imperialists". Such is fascism as defined by Benito Mussolini himself in 1932 (note that there is also a reference to imperialism...) :
  • Definition of Fascism by Benito Mussolini - 1932 (Source Fordham.edu)

  • . "Fascism, the more it considers and observes the future and the development of humanity quite apart from political considerations of the moment, believes neither in the possibility nor the utility of perpetual peace. It thus repudiates the doctrine of Pacifism -- born of a renunciation of the struggle and an act of cowardice in the face of sacrifice. War alone brings up to its highest tension all human energy and puts the stamp of nobility upon the peoples who have courage to meet it. All other trials are substitutes, which never really put men into the position where they have to make the great decision -- the alternative of life or death"...

  • . "Fascism combats the whole complex system of democratic ideology, and repudiates it, whether in its theoretical premises or in its practical application. Fascism denies that the majority, by the simple fact that it is a majority, can direct human society; its denies that numbers alone can govern by means of a periodical consultation, and it affirms the immuable, beneficial, and fruitful inequality of mankind, which can never be permanently leveled through the mere operation of a mechanical process such as universal suffrage. (...) Fascism denies, in democracy, the absurd conventional untruth of political equality dressed out in the garb of collective irresponsibility, and the myth of "happiness" and indefinite progress."...

  • . "The foundation of Fascism is the conception of the State, its character, its duty, and its aim. Fascism conceives of the State as an absolute, in comparison with which all individuals or groups are relative, only to be conceived of in their relation to the State. The conception of the Liberal State is not that of a directing force, guiding the play and development, both material and spiritual, of a collective body, but merely a force limited to the function of recording results : on the other hand, the Fascist State is itself conscious and has itself a will and a personality -- thus it may be called the "ethic" State"...

  • . "The Fascist State organizes the nation, but leaves a sufficient margin of liberty to the individual; the latter is deprived of all useless and possibly harmful freedom, but retains what is essential; the deciding power in this question cannot be the individual, but the State alone"...

  • . "For Fascism, the growth of empire, that is to say the expansion of the nation, is an essential manifestation of vitality, and its opposite a sign of decadence. Peoples which are rising, or rising again after a period of decadence, are always imperialists; and renunciation is a sign of decay and of death. Fascism is the doctrine best adapted to represent the tendencies and the aspirations of a people, like the people of Italy, who are rising again after many centuries of abasement and foreign servitude. But empire demands disciplin, the coordination of all forces and a deeply felt sense of duty and sacrifice; this fact explains many aspects of the practical working of the regime, the character of many forces in the State, and the necessarily severe measures which must be taken against those who would oppose this spontaneous and inevitable movement of Italy in the nineteenth century - repudiated wheresoever there has been the courage to undertake great experiments of social and political transformation; for never before has the nation stood more in need of authority, of direction and order. If every age has its own characteristic doctrine, there are a thousand signs which point to Fascism as the characteristic doctrine of our time. For if a doctrine must be a living thing, this is proved by the fact that Fascism has created a living faith; and that this faith is very powerful in the minds of men is demonstrated by those who have suffered and died for it"...
Doesn't it ring any (alarm) bell ?

(NB : this blogule led to a massive diffusion of literature comparing Bush and Benito)

Bases are loaded, folks. "The Fascist State organizes the nation, but leaves a sufficient margin of liberty to the individual; the latter is deprived of all useless and possibly harmful freedom". And we shall dub this "The Patriot Act".
Oh yes it's good to be the king, ooh la la
Q : who released those two unforgettable quotes ?
. 'I'm the commander - see, I don't need to explain - I do not need to explain why I say things. That's the interesting thing about being the President. Maybe somebody needs to explain to me why they say something, but I don't feel I owe anybody* an explanation."
. "A dictatorship would be a heck of a lot easier, there's no question about it".
A : George W Bush aka King Dubya from The Banana Republic of The Divided States of America. Someone who never flip-flops when high moral standards are required (still dodging after all these years).
* Anybody ? How about the American people ? Duh ! I forgot you don't owe them anything since they didn't elect you...




What, me worry?
Totally Mad!
