What Is Fascism?

Posted in Fascism, philosophy, Politics, Quotations, Social and Politics, Wars by Curtis on 9/30/06

[Fascism is] a form of political behavior marked by obsessive preoccupation with community decline, humiliation or victimhood and by compensatory cults of unity, energy and purity, in which a mass-based party of committed national militants, working in uneasy but effective collaboration with traditional elites, abandons democratic liberties and pursues with redemptive violence and without ethical or legal restraints goals of internal cleansing and external expansion.
—Robert O. Paxton, Professor Emeritus, Columbia University, The Anatomy of Fascism

When fascism comes to America, it will come wrapped in an American flag.
—Huey P. Long

Fascism is not defined by the number of its victims, but by the manner in which it kills them.
—Jean-Paul Sartre

Fascism is capitalism in decay.
—Vladimir Lenin
