It's doubtful, and rather ahistorical, to characterize Attila the Hun or Temujin (Genghis Khan) as "fascists". They were authoritarian and autocratic, but only notable in that they were more successful in doing so than other peoples and leaders of the time. Fascism as it's understood now isn't really possible without a somewhat industrialized society, the modern nation state, etc. The first arguably fascistic states were those that arose in Europe in reaction to the French revolution and Napoleon, or perhaps after the revolts of 1848.

from Wikipedia:

corporative organization of the economy that suppresses trade union liberty, broadens the sphere of state intervention, and seeks to achieve, by principles of technocracy and solidarity, the collaboration of the 'productive sectors' under control of the regime, to achieve its goals of power, yet preserving private property and class divisions;"

Sorry to break up the party but most of these people are fascists only in the sense that the word has become a pejorative for authority of any kind.


Probably call these folks nihilsts or anarchists.

The ones on this thread may be better termed sociopaths. Not locker and Herrr Braun.

Anybody see Starship Troopers?

The director, Paul V, was trying to say that war makes fascists of us all.

Or more like authoritarians. For good reason too. When the chips are down during times of war its hard to imagine any other way.

I mean real war too, not this foreign adventure stuff.

The thing is if war (or any other crisis) never ends, then authoritarianism should also never end.....

right?

Hossjulia, your diatribe wins: "Hands up, MF." Highly entertaining, sorry for your grief, gal.

Favorite Asshole/Fascist/Liar is Hafez al-Assad, the daddy of the current asshate in charge of Syria. Not for much longer, I hope.

What's with all the O-bashing, men? He's gone in three and a half. Find a target for your ire that's not running my country, OK? You think your BS is gonna change ANYTHING?

IF My President is a dreaded fascist, and IF he starts putting my friends in jail, THEN we can do something, and it's called TAKING IT TO THE STREETS. So sit on it, fools.

You mean like George W signing 291 executive orders?

You mean like Bill Clinton signing 364 executive orders?

Still far behind the King - FDR had over 3700. One even "relocated" those evil Japanese living here. But it's all good - he had a D after his name.

Fox News and Limbaugh tell them that Executive Orders are some new trick devised by Obama Hitler.

And they all fall in line, obey their orders, and carry on with the usual hysteria.

None bother to ask what an executive order actually is, whether they are unique to any administration or president.

None even consider history - that they started with George Washington himself.

Why should they? Murdoch and Limbaugh tell them that Executive Orders are some devilry conjured up by the Antichrist himself.

And they all fall in line.

Nationalism, patriotism, religion -- a blind, ignorant obedience toward those who invoke these things with the most zeal.

I think we have our definition now.

A brilliant example of fascism.

Actually Dave, not true. There was a lot of discussion about EOs during the Clinton administration. Which always struck me as funny since Reagan had more than Clinton.

Exactly. My point was going after the current conspiracy bullschit lie madness circulating that O has signed over 900 and that he is trying to become a dictator. I was only trying to point out that King George signed his share of them. But these shadow smokers don't listen anyway.....
Like a bunch of gawdamn paranoid meth freaks.

13,700 exec orders since Lincoln? Apparently they're not that gawdamn dangerous to the root of the nation.
