I was taught, like everyone else reading this, that the political spectrum looks essentially like this
Two things always puzzled me. Why did the reality of Fascism and Communism look so incredibly similar in every detail. And how was it that Conservatives who we are told authoritatively believe in, smaller government, less regulation, most services to be provided by the private sector, Individualism and the imperfectability of state systems create the monolith to centralized authority that is Fascism. Given that the proceeding step is Libertarianism whose beliefs are akin to Anarchism how does a philosophy that espouses individual freedom from any regulation become the literal template for the ideological regulation of all aspects of life. It is in fact one of the darkest lies ever told.
In understanding the scope of the deception lays a full understanding of whats happening around us and the means to fight and ultimately destroy the dark forces ripping our societies apart.
Benito Mussolini the creator of the term Fascisti or Fascist was a shining star of the Marxist left in Italy. He directly cites Neo-Marxist thinkers like Georges Sorel as the foundational philosophy of Fascism.
“Young Benito Mussolini became a Socialist and in 1908, at the age of 25, went to Trento as a journalist, and worked for a little with the Socialist irredentist leader, Cesare Battisti; he was soon expelled by the Austrian authorities and it is not uninteresting that the Florentine Voce published an article he then wrote on the Trentino. It is sometimes said that Mussolini’s visit to Trento brought Nietzsche into his life, though he had certainly been influenced by him earlier; his journalistic efforts showed the influence, above all, of Georges Sorel, and his behavior that of Sorel’s friend, Pareto.” – Wiskemann, Elizabeth (1947). “The Origins of Fascism.” In: Italy. Oxford University Press, p. 54.
So in the words of its actual founder and the man who gave Fascism its name, the base ideology evolved directly from Socialist and Marxist theory. The basic difference being that Marxism retained the idea of the International Revolution whereas Fascism worked to achieve the same goals in a Nationalist frame;
Practical anti-rationalism entered pre-Fascism through Georges Sorel and his theory of the “myth.” This influential socialist writer began as an orthodox Marxist. An extreme leftist, he naturally became a syndicalist, and soon the best-known syndicalist theoretician. Sorel then moved to defending Marx’s theory of the class struggle in a new way–no longer as a scientific theory, but instead as a “myth”, an understanding of the world and the future which moves men to action. When he began to abandon Marxism, both because of its theoretical failures and because of its excessive “materialism,” he looked for an alternative myth. Experience of current and recent events showed that workers had little interest in the class struggle but were prone to patriotic sentiment. By degrees, Sorel shifted his position, until at the end of his life he became nationalistic. He died in 1922, hopeful about Lenin and more cautiously hopeful about Mussolini.“
The Fascist frame also allowed for some private property and the existence of Industrial managers not employed directly by the state. To say the German Fascist state was in any way free market or capitalist is entirely false. Every detail of economic activity was directed and controlled by the Reich Economics Ministry in the exact same manner that Stalin controlled every aspect of the economy, the Fascists simply didn’t bother setting up State run companies, instead the state ran the companies that already existed.
These next passages are incredibly enlightening. Fascism at the moment of its birth was an opportunistic authoritarian ideology, not fixed to any specific belief other than its own right to power.
So it seems the basic ideological tenants are of completely secondary importance to Fascist movements. This made it easy for Adolf Hitler to adopt the basic philosophy to cover the Race based politics of Nazism. Fascism could be adapted to use Diversity and Inclusion as the predominant doctrines. In theory.
If Marxism birthed Fascism then Syndacalism and its messiah Georges Sorel was the proud father.
“Syndicalism is a radical current in the labor movement that was most active in the early 20th century. Its main idea is the establishment of local worker-based organizations and the advancement of the demands and rights of workers through strikes. According to the Marxist historian Eric Hobsbawm, it was predominant in the revolutionary left in the decade which preceded the outbreak of World War I because orthodox Marxism was mostly reformist at that time.Encyclopedia Britannica
Major syndicalist organizations included the General Confederation of Labor in France, the National Confederation of Labor in Spain, the Italian Syndicalist Union, the Free Workers’ Union of Germany, and the Argentine Regional Workers’ Federation. , the Industrial Workers of the World, the Irish Transport and General Workers’ Union and the Canadian One Big Union are considered by most historians to belong to this current.”
As mentioned by the original Fascist Mussolini Georges Sorel was an intellectual father of the movement. Goerges Sorel is best known for writing what could very well be the handbook for the self named ANTIFA/BLM movement today, Reflections on Violence.
Two of its themes have become a foundational part of social science literature:
The virtue of violence. Sorel is actually best known for this theory “that political revolution depends on the proletariat organizing violent uprisings and strikes to institute syndicalism, an economic system in which syndicats (self-organizing groups of only proletarians) truly represent the needs of the working class”.
Remind you of anyone. I would note here that Benito’s original thugs, the ones who violently suppressed all political dissent to bring Fascism to power, were known as the Camicie Nere or Black Shirts
Sorel also introduced the concept of the Social Myth . This is vitally important to understanding the Ideologies collectively known as Identity Politics. Sorel asserts in a letter to Daniel Halevy in 1907:
As long as there are no myths accepted by the masses, one may go on talking of revolts indefinitely, without ever provoking any revolutionary movement
A myth cannot be refuted, since it is, at bottom, identical with the conviction of a group, being the expression of these convictions in the language of movement; and it is, in consequence, unanalyzable into parts which could be placed on the plane of historical descriptions. A Utopia, on the other hand, can be discussed like any other social constitution; the spontaneous movements it presupposes can be compared with the movements actually observed in the course of history, and we can in this way evaluate its verisimilitude; it is possible to refute Utopias by showing that the economic system on which they have been made to rest is incompatible with the necessary conditions of modern production.“
So Georges Sorel, acknowledged father of Fascism provides the theoretical underpinnings of Black Lives Matter and ANTIFA.
It doesn’t matter that reality in no way matches their narrative, to them it is the Myth that propels them and no reference to fact can be allowed to interfere. This philosophy also explains why both ANTIFA and BLM are short on any plan beyond “burn it down”. To them as good Fascists to imagine some Utopia beyond the struggle is in itself compromise. read the Manifesto’s of BLM and ANTIFA, look at the public statements. It is the Myth that fuels their revolution.
Sorel’s Fascist musings has been quoted directly in amplifying the new and horrifying Gender Ideology so beloved by BLM that they state in their manifesto “We foster a queer-affirming network. When we gather, we do so with the intention of freeing ourselves from the tight grip of heteronormative thinking.
As shown in paper below
“I acknowledge the fact that for Butler social change can happen through citing the norm so that it exceeds its intended disciplinary effects, and I note that, on the contrary, in Sorel’s case a social myth expresses a complete break with institutionalized worldviews. Yet, I argue, it is possible to re-evaluate Sorelian theory for use within contemporary gender theory that addresses normative and performative discourses.”
The actual name of the political organization that set the standard and is most identified with Fascism was the Nationalsozialistische Deutsche Arbeiterpartei the direct translation for this is National-Socialist German Workers’ Party. Its literally in the name.
The German Nazi’s were at base the expression of Oligarchical Corporate power. If this seems inconsistent with Marxist or Socialist based ideologies I would suggest a look at Communist China and its seamless melding of the state and corporate power. With help from Big Tech China is moving for absolute societal control. It is a Nationalistic and militarily aggressive state that adheres to Neo Marxist political theory.
Adolf Hitler was the darling of the Oligarchs, ruling classes, and Elites of the West throughout the 1930’s he made Times man of the Year twice.
Now for our fun trivia round: as 1930’s Germany prepared the generation that would cause untold suffering, part of their indoctrination included the Nazi-generated concept of Soziale Gerechtigkeit , literally Social Justice.
Hitler was inspired by the writings of Henry Ford in his seminal work The International Jew. Ford also built the trucks, under the name Opel because the word Ford doesn’t work in German, that made the Blitzkrieg possible. The Nazi leader acknowledged this
The Rockefeller controlled Standard oil supplied the fuel additives without which the most brutal and horrific war in human history would never have happened.
The Private Foundations of the Rockefeller’s and Ford Families have backed social justice with their Billions.
It is worth Noting the early Rockefeller presence in China
The Rockefeller family’s connection with China date back to 1863, when John D. Rockefeller sold his first kerosene to China and presented his first gift to China missions…..The Rockefeller Foundation entered China in early 20th century when the West was moving toward modern ideals of evidence-based medicine” They built the Union Medical college in 1921 at the cost of 10M in 1920 dollars. David Rockefeller would be the driving force behind “normalizing” relations with Communist China in the 1970’s and the subsequent creation of the Red Capitalism that has devastated the manufacturing industries of the West and made us literally dependent on them for our most basic needs.
Nascent Big Tech played a massive role in facilitating the absolute Nazi control.
“From the first moments of the Hitler regime in 1933, IBM used its exclusive punch card technology and its global monopoly on information technology to organize, systematize, and accelerate Hitler’s anti-Jewish program, step by step facilitating the tightening noose. The punch cards, machinery, training, servicing, and special project work, such as population census and identification, was managed directly by IBM headquarters in New York, and later through its subsidiaries in Germany, known as Deutsche Hollerith-Maschinen Gesellschaft (DEHOMAG), Poland, Holland, France, Switzerland, and other European countries.”
IBM and The Holocaust
They are enabling its resurrection
“Professor Larry Backer of Penn State University writes in a 2018 paper that resistance to social credit systems in the west could be dissolved when the masses are “socialized… as a collective” and “…the great culture management machinery of Western society develop a narrative in which such activity is naturalized within Western culture”….
Make no mistake what is happening around you is the nascent rise of Fascism gather your weapons and prepare for the fight of your lives.
Turning and turning in the widening gyre
The falcon cannot hear the falconer;
Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;
Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,
The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere
The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
The best lack all conviction, while the worst
Are full of passionate intensity.
Surely some revelation is at hand;
Surely the Second Coming is at hand.
The Second Coming! Hardly are those words out
When a vast image out of Spiritus Mundi
Troubles my sight: somewhere in sands of the desert
A shape with lion body and the head of a man,
A gaze blank and pitiless as the sun,
Is moving its slow thighs, while all about it
Reel shadows of the indignant desert birds.
The darkness drops again; but now I know
That twenty centuries of stony sleep
Were vexed to nightmare by a rocking cradle,
And what rough beast, its hour come round at last,
Slouches towards Bethlehem to be born?
WB Yeats 1919
