Fascist Political Action Summarized

Attempts to impose rule from above.

Government control of large business and manufacturing organizations.

Quasi-religious cult of personality.

Initiatives to muffle the opposition.

Denial of moral legitimacy to opponents.

Reliance on goons to intimidate adversaries.

Use – under various names – of the doctrine of the false consciousness of ordinary citizens to explain away adverse events.

Note: I posted a longish essay explaining fascism in some detail on this blog in the past. See, “Fascism explained,” June 19th 2009.
