Order, Hierarchy, Discipline."


Rise of Fascism 2015

Ayn Rand on Fascism

Fascism, American Style

1577 "This does not seem credible on first thought, but it is nevertheless true that there are only nine who maintain the dictator, five or six who keep the country in bondage to him.

Nine have always had access to his ear, and have either gone to him of their own accord, or else have been summoned, to be accomplices in cruelties, companions in pleasures, panders to his lusts, and sharers in his plunders.

These manage the dictator so successfully that he comes to be held accountable not only for his own misdeeds but even for theirs.

The nine have nine hundred who profit under them, and with the nine hundred they do what they need to accomplished for their tyrant.

The nine hundred maintain under them nine thousand, whom they promote in rank, upon whom they confer the government of provinces or the direction of finances, in order that they may serve as instruments of avarice and cruelty, executing orders at the proper time and working havoc that they could not except under the shadow of the nine hundred, nor be exempt from law and punishment except through their influence." - Étienne de La Boétie, Discourse of Voluntary Servitude

1904  Lincoln Steffens in The Shame of the Cities American democracy failures stemmed from one source - self-interested control of government.

Lincoln Steffens characterized this as a category of treason because "the effect is to literally change the form of government from one representative of the people to an oligarchy representative of the special interests."

October 29, 1922 At age 39, Benito Mussolini became the youngest prime minister in Italian history.

King Victor Emmanuel III, at the behest of aristocracy - a group of industrialists, capitialists and agrarians - accepted Benito Mussolini's fascism over the assumed greater evils of a communist or socialist government that might confiscate excessive war profits, nationalize industry, grant excessive power to labor and force higher wages.

Benito Mussolini's fascist State, a marriage of entrenced aristocracy and rising industrial capitialist power, would provide a model for Adolf Hitler economic and political policies.

Benito Mussolini's fascism evolved into a political and economic system that combined totalitarianism, nationalism, anti-communism and anti-liberalism into a State culture designed to bind all classes together under corporatism.

1932 A Spiritual View Of Life

"Thus many of the practical expressions of Fascism such as party organization, system of education, and discipline can only be understood when considered in relation to its general attitude toward life.

A spiritual attitude.

Fascism sees in the world not only those superficial, material aspects in which man appears as an individual, standing by himself, narcissitic, subject to natural law, which instinctively urges him toward a life of selfish momentary pleasure; it sees not only the individual but the nation and the country.

Individuals and generations bound together by a moral law, with common traditions and a mission which suppressing the instinct for life closed in a brief circle of pleasure, builds up a higher life, founded on duty, a life free from limitations in which the individual, by self-sacrifice, the renunciation of self-interest, by death itself, can achieve that purely spiritual existence." - The Doctrine of Fascism, Benito Mussolini (1932)

"A successful fascist movement takes as its own authoritarian forms of the objective pressures previously overwhelming and humiliating its members.

The masses identify themselves so strongly with the fascist system they are ready to undergo any hardship, as proof of virility." - Theodor Adorno

"The New World Order the Rockefellers are planning will be a dictatorship.

Conservatives will call it Socialism or Communism.

Liberals will call it Fascism. The label doesn't matter.

Its Gulag Archipelago on a worldwide basis." - Gary Allen

"Klaus Theweleit in Male Fantasies, which draw on the bitter alienation of demobilized veterans in Germany following the end of World War I, argues that a militarized culture attacks all that is culturally defined as the feminine, including love, gentleness, compassion and acceptance of diversity.

The continued support for our permanent war economy, the continued eg● military values as the highest good, sustains the perverted ethic, rigid social roles and emotional numbness. It is a moral cancer.

Fascism, Theweleit argued, is not so much a particular structuring of the economy, but the creation of potent slogans and symbols that form a kind of psychic economy which places sexuality in the service of destruction.

The core of all fascist propaganda is a battle against everything that constitutes enjoyment and pleasure, Theweleit wrote.

Our culture, while it disdains fascism, embraces its ethic." - Chris Hedges

"Today the tyrant rules not by club or fist, but, disguised as a market observer, he shepherds his flocks in the ways of utility and comfort." - Marshall McLuhan

"Of all tyrannies, a tyranny exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end, for they do so with the approval of their own conscience." - CS Lewis

"Single acts of tyranny may be ascribed to the accidental opinion of a day.

But a series of oppressions, begun at a distinguished period, and pursued

through every change of ministers, too plainly proves a

404 BC Thirty Tyrants are a pro-Spartan oligarchy installed in Athens after defeat in the Peloponnesian War.

The Thirty exile or kill anyone who outwardly opposed the regime.

Socrates remains in the Athens throughout this period, which allowed the public to associate him with the Thirty and may have contributed to his eventual death sentence, perhaps because Critias had been his student.

Led by Critias, Thirty Tyrants preside over a reign of terror in which they execute, murder, and exile hundreds of Athenians, seizing property.

Critias has been described as "the first Robespierre" due to his inhumanity.

Both Isocrates and Aristotle (the latter in the Athenian Constitution) have reported that the Thirty executed 1500 people without trial.

Socrates begins his legal defence by telling the jury their minds are poisoned.

Socrates solves the Divine Paradox - even the wisest men have blind spots.

Socrates says his wisdom is in being aware he is ignorant:

"I am wiser than this man; it is likely that neither of us knows anything worthwhile, but he thinks he knows something, when he does not."

Socrates notes those fearing death show ignorance as they may never notice.

Socrates states a lawful authority, either human or divine, should be obeyed.

Socrates holds up the mirror claiming the greatest good occurs in Athens when a citizen' moral concern is for the eternal souls of his fellow citizens.

Socrates askes for proof of an attempt to corrupt and an accuser.

The irreverent self-defense speech angers the jurors and invites punishment.

Socrates is sentenced to death.

He prophesies death will cause youngsters to come forward and replace him.

"Never forget that everything Adolf Hitler did in
Germany was legal
." - Martin Luther King Jr.

"The foundation of tyranny in the world was trifling at first.

Everyone capitulated to it until it attained its present magnitude."

Saadi of Shiraz

1930 Fascism sweeps Europe

In Spain, Germany, and Italy industrialists and aristocracy forge alliances with right-wing radicals and charismatic leaders to win elections.

Fascists took over government ministries running them for their own profit pouring government money into corporate coffers, by awarding lucrative contracts to prosecute wars and build infrastructure with little oversight.

"In autocratic regimes, the holders of power become increasingly tyrannical with experience of the delights that power can afford." - Bertrand Russell

Empire marketing pitch of genocide - American, Soviet, Maoist and Khmer Rouge are based on the murder spree myth organized by a single madman.

Historians of tyranny have a mission to deliver warnings from the past of the social political conditions that brought these people to power.

If Rafael Trujillo Molina, Jonas Savimbi, Charles Taylor or Barack Obama are presented as one dimensional psychopaths with delusions of grandeur there is no warning that a culture has stumbled into the danger zone.

Nothing is learned about the chain of events and the systems of control used by the ruling class to understand how genocidal nightmares are engineered.

"Tyranny can't be isolated to just one person giving orders.

It is an entire society consisting of bullies and the bullied." - Bill Decker

Charmless psychopaths never rise to power without the backing of a culture already steeped in cultural ponerology and firmly set in spiritual corruption.

"Fascism is itself less 'ideological', in so far as it openly proclaims the principle of domination that is elsewhere concealed." - Theodor Adorno

The Corporate State is concerned with individual welfare only when the promotion of individual welfare coincides with needs of the State.

The Fascist State charters corporations while insuring corporate profits through State decree, deregulation, bailouts, subsidies and tax relief.

"Anti-individualistic, the Fascist conception of life stresses the importance of the State and accepts the individual only in so far as his interests coincide with those of the State." - Benito Mussolini

January 21, 2010 The Supreme Court decides in Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission that corporations and unions First Amendment protection of free speech is violated if contributions are limited.

"If the First Amendment has any force, it prohibits Congress from fining or jailing citizens, or associations of citizens, for simply engaging in political speech." - Justice Kennedy majority opinion

Citizens United effectively is a coup de grâce to citizen participation in the once viable liberal democratic republic of the United States of America.

"Fascism is definitely and absolutely opposed to the doctrines of liberalism, both in the political and the economic sphere." - Benito Mussolini

War alone brings the highest tension to human energy; stamp of nobility
marks the people who have the courage to meet it." - Benito Mussolini

Fascism stress' collective obedience rather than focusing on individual rights and equality of opportunity.

Liberalistic ideology includes:

basic human rights;

true free market economy;

limitations on the power of the State;

extensive freedom of thought and speech;

the right to question the authority of the State;

rule of law applied equally to all segments of society;

free exchange of ideas, concepts and knowledge.

Elected fascist governments of Spain, Germany and Italy used invocations of patriotism, the threat of terrorist attacks, the fear of permanent war, and and homeland security to privatize the commons, tame the press, muzzle criticism by opponents, and turn government over to corporate control.

Political leaders appeal to fear, hatred, greed and prejudices.

"It is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy, a fascist dictatorship, a parliament or a communist dictatorship.

People can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders.

Tell them they are being attacked, denounce the peacemakers for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger." - Hermann Goering

Communism is, by definition, total government.

Socialism is defined as government ownership and/or control over basic means of production, distribution of goods and services - total government.

If you have total government does it matter what you call it?

Corporatism is defined as corporate control over the basic means of production and distribution of resources, governance by corporation.

Alphabet agencies are incorportions:


"Our chief foe is a swarm of locust like human beings dedicated to "reforming" and perpetuating corporatism, the very system that has led us to this woeful state of environmental, economic, social, and political affairs.

Corporatism, the systemization of greed, selfishness, subjugation and exploitation is camouflaged by the narcotic of consumerism.

The illusion of equal opportunity for all has seduced hundreds of millions of people into ignoring its contradictions, injustices, and malevolence.

Corporatism has inflicted deep wounds upon the Earth.

It is a persistent infection that must be eradicated to avert the sixth mass extinction, acceleration of climate change, further economic collapse, mass starvation, severe shortages of potable water and perpetual resource wars." - Jason Miller

Corporatism as a share-the-wealth program is a confidence game to get the populace to surrender their freedom to a collectivist corporate monopoly.

Sycophants, told they are building a paradise, are constructing a jail.

Americans, indoctrinated to think corporatism is a share-the-wealth program, fail to note it is a method to consolidate and control wealth.

"It came as a severe shock to learn that several of the greatest American corporate leaders were in league with Nazi corporations before and after Pearl Harbor, including IG Farben, the colossal Nazi industrial trust.

Each of these business leaders was entangled with the others through interlocking directorates or financial sources.

All were represented by National City Bank or by Chase National Bank and by the Nazi attorneys Gerhardt Westrick and Dr. Heinrich Albert.

All had connections to that crucial Nazi economist, Emil Puhl, of Hitler's Reichsbank and the Bank for International Settlements.

Several not only sought a continuing alliance of interests for the duration of World War II but supported the idea of a negotiated peace with Germany that would bar any reorganization of Europe along liberal lines.

It would leave as its residue a police state that would place the tycoons in postwar possession of financial, industrial, and political autonomy.

When war was over, the survivors pushed into Germany, protected their assets, restored Nazi friends to high office, helped provoke the Cold War.

What would have happened if millions of American and British people, struggling with coupons and lines at the gas stations, had learned that in 1942 Standard Oil of New Jersey managers shipped enemy fuel through neutral Switzerland and that the enemy was shipping Allied fuel?

Suppose the public had discovered that the Chase Bank in Nazi-occupied Paris after Pearl Harbor was doing millions of dollars' worth of business with the enemy with the full knowledge of the head office in Manhattan?

Or that Ford trucks were being built for the German occupation troops in France with authorization from Dearborn, Michigan?

Or that Colonel Sosthenes Behn, the head of the international telephone amalgamation ITT, flew from New York to Madrid to Berne during the war to help improve Hitler's communications systems and improve the automaton bombs that devastated London?

Or that ITT built the Focke-Wolfe that dropped bombs on British and American troops?

Or that crucial ball bearings were shipped to Nazi-associated customers in Latin America with the collusion of the vice-chairman of the US War Production Board in partnership with Göring's cousin in Philadelphia when American forces were desperately short of them?

Or that such arrangements were known about in Washington and either sanctioned or deliberately ignored?

Dubious financial transactions sanctioned before and after Pearl Harbor.

A presidential edict, issued six days after December 7, 1941, actually set up the legislation whereby licensing arrangements for trading with the enemy could officially be granted.

During the years after Pearl Harbor the government permitted such trading.

ITT was allowed to continue its relations with the Axis and Japan until 1945.

No attempt was made to prevent Ford from working with the Germans in Occupied France, nor were Chase Bank or Morgan Bank forbidden from keeping open their branches in Occupied Paris." - Charles Higham

"When fascism comes to America it will be wrapped
in the flag and carrying the cross." - Sinclair Lewis

Fourteen Defining Characteristics Of Fascism

She survived Hitler and wants to warn America

Fascism has been defined as a system of government that exercises a dictatorship of the extreme right, typically through the merging of state and business leadership together with belligerent patriotic nationalism.

"I don't care if Democratic presidential candidate John Edwards is using fascist author Ann Coulter to raise money." - Barry Simon

"The only reason that we are still in Iraq is to distract voters from corrupt politicians and their cronies looting the treasury." - Steve Harrington

"Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld's comparison of our enemies in the Middle East to fascist countries of theory is an interesting stretch.

Fascist governments have the following characteristics:

domination of all branches of government and the economy;

control of news via economic relationships and threats of retribution;

reliance on military to promote national unity and expand global influence;

blind obedience to the national leader, and dismissal of any international laws unless they are temporarily expedient." - Michael Roddy

"The federal government spends half its tax dollars on military operations.

It is the largest single sustained activity of the federal government.

The military-industrial establishment is a very lucrative business.

Massive profits are always guaranteed." - Chris Hedges

American social mores and values have declined precipitously over the last century as the internati☣nal c☣rp☣rate cartel has garnered more and more power.
