“Fascism should more appropriately be called Corporatism because it is a merger of state and corporate power”
— Benito Mussolini
I would like to direct readers to an excellent essay about the nature of fascism, and how close we are to getting there. Things look bad, but there is still time to turn this thing around. Please note in the article I will link to – the plight of the workers in Germany, Italy and Spain. All had to have workers logbooks, similar to passports that carried employer reviews. The company could seize these passports anytime, and the worker would not be able to seek further employment. There was mandatory jail time for missing work. The author also makes a point that the fascist dictatorship was not run by the corporations, it was run for the corporations. Please read the entire article at the link, but let’s take a look at one quote:

“The historian Isaac Deutscher, in the third volume of his Trotsky biography, The Prophet Outcast, captured the mood of German shopkeepers and other middle class people who came to ruin during the Weimar Republic:

“The Kleinbürger normally resented his social position: he looked up with envy and hatred at big business, to which he so often hopelessly succumbed in competition; and he looked down upon the workers, jealous of their capacity for political and trade union organization and for collective self-defense. … At big business the small man shook his fists as if he were a socialist; against the worker he shrilled his bourgeois respectability, his horror of class struggle, his rabid nationalist pride, and his detestation of Marxist internationalism. This political neurosis of impoverished millions gave [Nazism] its force and impetus.”

Here’s the article;

Our world is awful, yes, but it isn’t fascism — yet

  • Covid Dreams
    Covid Dreams This rambling post is simply the wanderings of my mind as I have worked through Covid. If you don’t care to read it, fine. I’m just working through some thoughts, and believe me, I’ve had a full week of isolation to think about shit. First, let me say I have (until last week) […]
  • Ray Crowe: Bigfoot Behavior
    While taking another break from reading dystopian books on the state-of-the-world, I picked up my copy of “Bigfoot Behavior”, by Ray Crowe. Let me begin by saying that I met Mr. Crowe and spoke with him many times. I bought armloads of books at his tiny used book store in the St. John’s neighborhood on […]
  • Larceny Games; Sports Gambling, Game Fixing And The FBI
    Let me start by saying that I played a lot of sports in High School, some I liked, some I didn’t. When the coaches kept chasing me down I agreed to try Football, even though I didn’t give a shit about Football. One of my good friends was a star on the team. He decided […]
  • Review: “The Socratic Method” – By Farnsworth
    Review: The Socratic Method By Ward Farnsworth Many months ago, I decided I needed to get into some classic books that I had never read in school. One such book was “The Republic” by Plato. Well, that didn’t last long. I was overwhelmed by the archaic language and ancient Greek names. I can be pretty […]
  • Reviews: Sea Monsters & Sasquatch
    Regular readers might know that I can’t just do dystopian analysis of current events all the time; sometimes I have to get into something completely different. With regard to that, I have reviewed a few Bigfoot books, and picked up some classic novels as well as books on philosophy. Today we take a look at […]
