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,” May 27th 2009.

About Jacques Delacroix

I write short stories, current events comments, and sociopolitical essays, mostly in English, some in French. There are other people with the same first name and same last name on the Internet. I am the one who put up on Amazon in 2014: "I Used to Be French: an Immature Autobiography" and also: "Les pumas de grande-banlieue." To my knowledge, I am the only Jacques Delacroix with American and English scholarly publications. In a previous life, I was a teacher and a scholar in Organizational Theory and in the Sociology of Economic Development. (Go ahead, Google me!) I live in the People’s Green Socialist Republic of Santa Cruz, California.

    Any particular reason you think this is relevant now? (ha ha)

    • Terry Amburgey says:

      Jacques is a teapublican, fascist political action is always relevant. It defines the fabric of his very existence.

  2. Rich: Of course. See my recent posting: “The IRS and Fascism -Augmented.”

  3. Terry: Instead of shaming yourself with grade school insults, why don’t you do something useful and explain to us the “progressive” viewpoint on what President Obama’s IRS is accused of doing? I will put up anything you write on the subject.
