Do you think modern day fascists / abstract right wing authoritarians, anti democratic racists have the capacity to evolve beyond their larp stage and become something more deadly relative to "allowing" themselves to be co-opted into power or normalizing their politics? What could actually generate support for a new fascist-coded type of party or organization to rise in the United States?

"In contrast to Germany, the U.S.A. had a constitution which was democratic from the start. And its ruling class managed, particularly during the imperialist era, to have the democratic forms so effectively preserved that by democratically legal means, it achieved a dictatorship of monopoly capitalism at least as firm as that which Hitler set up with tyrannic procedures. This smoothly functioning democracy, so-called, was created by the Presidential prerogative, the Supreme Court’s authority in constitutional questions, the finance monopoly over the Press, radio, etc., electioneering costs, which successfully prevented really democratic parties from springing up beside the two parties of monopoly capitalism, and lastly the use of terroristic devices (the lynching system). And this democracy could, in substance, realize everything sought by Hitler without needing to break with democracy formally. In addition, there was the incomparably broader and more solid economic basis of monopoly capitalism."

The problem with modern Fascists is beyond broadly not reading their own theory, they take what I'd coin the "Witch Doctor" approach to politics. They elevate politics to purely performative rituals in the hopes that it'll mean actual power. Y'know in some way Patriot Front is more genuinely American than any other Fascist group out there because they're concerned with appearances and how they appear on camera rather than doing anything "offscreen."

But yeah, like I was saying. Most Fascist only have political expression without political construction. They'll do things like hold a sign with an inflammatory statement out, threaten to start fights, then throw up a nazi salute. It's like the atomized white guy's version of a flash mob.

Let's go back to Patriot Front: they're training in marching formations with shield and club tactics. Beyond just embarrassing themselves, it reveals they're trying to make the brownshirts without having a real reason for them. They recognize that early Fascists had bodyguards, but they can't understand why the various shirts-militias existed in the first place, or what they did other than "fight leftists."

Mosley's Blackshirts beat up tax collectors trying to get some church tithe from farmers. The Brownshirts sold cigarettes. ᴉuᴉlossnW's Blackshirts were more combat oriented, granted, but it wasn't like they didn't have people winning hearts and minds–Casapound set up a youth hostel and health clinic. The Falange supported workers co-ops.

Can anyone say what these groups do other than shit their pants in public? What makes the thing even more comical is that most of these guys aren't, like, psychotic combat veterans. Shit, from what I saw in the Patriot Front doxx it was mostly pasty-looking suburban nerds with, like, one violent former felon among them. So you've got kids who think they're hard because they smoked weed once in highschool tagging bus stops. Plus these guys are terrified of consequences, so while the blackshirts were willing to get their teeth knocked in and do flagrantly illegal shit, up to literally assassinating their political enemies these guys are just petty hooligans with a Nazi aesthetic.

Now that isn't to lull people into a false sense of confidence. What Richard Spencer pulled off in 2016 was, broadly, giving Nazism a cleaner face. In fact I think he was even a bit clever at first; he presented himself as a "civilian" who was "just expressing ideas" and he'd wear a nice suit and tie, and then out of the blue all these darned socialists would attack him! If he was smart, he could've organized a few more public incidents, and next thing you know he'd need "bodyguards". Then the more he speaks, and if his bodyguards crack some Antifa types in the process, the more attention people will pay. Had it not been for Charlottesville the "AltRight" could've made itself into a dangerous movement… though perhaps some Germans said the same thing after the disastrous Beer Hall Putsch.

Anyways, if I had to take a shot in the dark, I think the "PatSoc" trend might be the next evolution of this growing Fascist danger. I think I can safely say that now. I saw "Midwestern Marx" apparently condemn antisemitism while discussing "Finance Capital" and a chunk of his followers started posting (((them))) conspiracies outright. I think with Patriotic Socialism and "MAGA Communism" (and for as absurd as the latter is, Dugin felt it worthy of discussion) we're witnessing the birth of the "intellectual" Left Fascists, and I think those are the load-bearing coalition of the movement.

I still don't think Fascists can get far on extreme Racism, though. At least not in modern times. I'll get eye rolls for this, but in spite of the ambient racism in American society, I think groups like Blacks and Jews are simply too integrated into our everyday life to give traction to an openly racist movement. I think there's a genuine possibility of "Black Fascism" emerging to coincide with a wider Fascist shift. Could be they pull a page from the Integralists book and say "race mixing is okay" or what have you.

I think it's form will resemble welfare Capitalism or a kind of State Capitalism. Depends on how the PatSocs continue to devolve.

The dialectic is repeating itself, the same old ideas are bending around time to struggle once again. Only everything is so much stupider now. We're all LARPers and pseuds compared to the radicals of yesteryear.

CPUSAnon is correct, there's no way in hell that the skinheads and 4chan racists who consider themselves 'fascists' could ever take power in America. They have no political vision, organization or social base beyond a minority of edgy misanthropes. Even if they could cobble together a movement, they'll be politely escorted to prison by the FBI before ever getting close to Washington DC.

The only chance of an 'American fascism' succeeding is through an apostate leftist. A charismatic leader who is able to combine social-democratic politics with an appeal to the petty bourgeois for national rejuvenation through protectionism, isolationism, and ruralism. Some kind of integralist theory of race and identity would also be necessary, white nationalism just isn't gonna fly and you'll need the support of nonwhite reactionaries to function as a movement.

Still unlikely though, and my money remains on the continued degeneration of bourgeois politics leading to a military coup and eventual declaration of a Second American Republic.

I believe some Racist Libertarian regime like they have in Central/South America based around herrenvolk democratic principles is possible but not Hitlerian fascism no, Hitlerism/Race Exterminationism regardless of profit is just completely alien to America's dasein. Even the Dixies and the KKK did not want this.
>"But what about manifest destiny anon?"
It was caused by a combination of objective financial profitability, mass youthfull white immigration, natives lack of organized civilization and poor resistance to eurasian dizeases, not comparable to Generalplan Ost.
A potential Hitlerite regime change in America would not be youthful enough, homogenous enough, profitable enough or justified enough to happen. It would also be too authoritarian, as far as the average white american is concerned having a creepy dysgneic NAZIs telling them how to live their life isnt much different from having Jason Unruhue calling them labor aristokkrat firstoid trash: they don't want it.

>they take what I'd coin the "Witch Doctor" approach to politics
I suspect some of their failure comes from what I will coin the "Cheerleader" approach to politics.
Many neo-Nazis believe in a race war, a fantasized day when mass society will wake up (see also: red-pill, The Great Awakening) to race realism, become what we'd call race conscious, and Whoites, being the majority/the ones with Aryan spirit, will inevitably defeat da joos and blags. This leads them to strategically focus on platform seeking, information warfare and random PotD terrorism. They believe they can win the world through posting memes. And that can hypothetically cause a lot of damage, but it just isn't practical at attacking a system, especially given the material conditions. It's like if communists said 'we just need to explain Marxism to the entire population so they wake up and kill all the business owners, cops, liberals and other class traitors!!' it's just not a good strategy in practice.
I've seen more effective anti-Israel action by socialists in a month than any rightoids I'm aware of accomplished in decades. And make no mistake, they're mad the US funds them with tax money, they're mad at Mossad and their bullshit, I told some /pol/yps what my communist comrades did this week and they gave me a bunch of thumbs up. If I can remember to, I'll look up if /pol/ talks about the direct anti-Israel action Western communists are doing (like blocking weapons manufacture, harassing intellectuals, etc.) and see what they make of it. It's all over mass media so they probably do talk about it.
But the point being, I don't see righoids using any of the tactics which actually work. It's just not in their arsenal.

Yeah, and even if Fascists were to try busting unions now, they'd be doing it at a time when unions are more popular than they've been in ages. Even the Union Busting of the 80s needed some justification; namely convincing Boomers "these greedy union guys just want to get paid for doing nothing, and that's why the economy is bad!" It's not like Fascists can point to apparent "chaos" like a revolution in a nearby country to make Marxists seem "scarier" either.

It's why I've got to say Richard Spencer was being a little more clever when he risked letting himself get assaulted rather than speaking exclusively to a crowd of skinheads. I still think his ideas were ultimately not gonna get far, but he was going about it all with some cunning. Unite the Right was really just him blowing his load too soon.

>>1810890
Y'know I have another theory, that the modern Neo-Nazis just carry too much baggage with them to make constructive politics possible. People look at the Swastika, and it's repellant for normal people.

It's an issue that the Left can kind of face too, with the hammer and sickle and all that, but it's made even worse because of the intentional murderousness of the Nazi regime. Like the USSR is broadly characterized as being "murderous by incompetence" while the Nazis are "murderous through competence."

Even the most depraved stories from North Korean defectors are some variation of "And then the government decided everything is worth exactly the same, so we don't have any doctors, because all the doctors make as janitors, and so people die." Which is a far cry from literally loading people into cattle cars to exterminate them.

A successful neo-Fascist movement in the U.S. will have to drop the baggage. It would need to stop using the symbols of EuroFash regimes and develop their own symbols. It likely won't call itself "Fascist" explicitly or throw up the Roman salute. It'll call itself something like "Neo-Socialism" or "Americanism" or "National Unity" or whatever.

The reason the Nazis could get away with the Swastika was because at the time, it was new. No one had any conception of the horrors that would later come to be associated with the symbol. Germany was also a hell of a lot less racially diverse than America. So you'd go to some Fascist soup kitchen or nature hike, and it's all "Oooh, unity! Friendship! Make Germany great again!" If Nazis tried setting up some poverty support out here, like give out food and clothes, well eventually Black people and others would come and they'd have to tell these people to their face: "No, we don't help your kind." And that's ruins any propaganda value that could come from "Fascist soup kitchens" and the like.

The success of prior Fascist movements is that they could claim to be "beyond" Left and Right, nominally defined as the mainstream Left and Right of their nations. And what makes it possible to claim that is some unifying principle, some intrinsic identity they can rally the majority around; "Oh hey, we're all Germans/Italians/Spaniards here!"

That's a funny thing about OG Fascism, the point of the ultranationalism was to emphasize unity of the majority. There was an exclusionary and often xenophobic element, no doubt, but xenophobia was a lot more tolerable to the "mainstream" in a world where industrialized genocide hadn't happened (in Europe) yet. If a modern Fascist tries to appeal to a "unifying" White identity, then he's gonna fall flat because the very concept of "White Identity" has been specifically coded to the Right.

Y'know there was some old fascist propaganda I saw, where it was this three panel comicstrip. First panel is some shaggy looking dude waving a red flag and stepping on the Italian flag. Second panel, a blackshirt comes over and forces him to drink a bottle of "cure" (bottle was labeled "Fascism"). Third panel, the blackshirt and the shaggy guy are both stepping on the red flag and raising the Italian one. Even the Nazis would pay lipservice to this "German unity" that transcended Left and Right, at least at the start.

The Fascists of today are more obsessed with making a list of people they're going to kill when they come to power. There's not even an attempt to create some artificial "unity" of all American citizens.

I said it once before and I'll say it again: any successful Fascism in America is gonna be multiracial.

i think "orthodox fascism" has already largely been incorporated into much of the west in general, particularly the united states, in the form of corporatist governance funding itself through perpetual war & imperialism. but i think this incorporation of older fascism necessarily had to shed much of its more overt ideological schema in favor of being actually implemented as administrative policy, and during decline theres still an appetite for reactionary solutions. the schizophrenia & permission to engage in the most vicious reflexes has always been at the heart of fascism, but there used to be some grounding that could be pointed to as far as desiring the unity of the nation in the form of unifying capital and labor under a militarized state that ensures their cooperation. now weve already had that in the US for the entire post-war period, so the reactionaries in the US that look fondly on fascist and quasi-fascist ideology need to really embrace schizophrenia & groundless aesthetics for explaining what they really want, either that or theyre honest with themselves and say they want race war because theyve become addicted to sissy hypo BBC porn

This is what I meant by anecdotes don't matter. I don't give a shit about your liberal elections or whatever example you want me to give so you can break it down.
It is more than obvious that they're metaphorically drilling holes into the brains of newgens to be hailing Hitlers catholicpilling themselves into killing the 'troons' and 'nigs' as they fend off the 'woke left'. But yeah, obviously the internet cannot have an effect on the real World or people, because it just can't according to you. You need those sources and facts and logic, because you cannot just state an obvious observation and say it is. It has to be backed up by the authors of your choice in a nice long bureau-speak with tons of clapping and applauds. Obviously Neo-Nazis indoctornating 14 year old kids, starting with skull mask Wojak profile pics to going out on the streets and stabbing migrants by the they've turned 17 is just memes and doesn't matter. Because it has to be proven by the sources and statistics and not just be singled out cases that have accumulated to a point of pattern-recognition, it just has to be OFFICIAL right?

The very language itself used in political games right now stems from the internet, but obviously it does not, the internet just doesn't matter and has no effect on the real World. Because it just doesn't right? Its not like cultures develop on the internet. And even though internet creates cultures then cultures don't have an effect on the real World right? Its all memes. Funny pictures and sounds cannot possibly have influence right? And if someone says they do then just compare them to those old congressmen who used to complain about how videogames are causing violence (ignoring the metanarratives and critical theory of Neo-Nazis showing kids actual gore).

Couldin't agree more. We really need the natural safe drugs as an alternative to experiencing and living with the stresses of capitalist realism though. Need more methods of escapism for envisioning alternatives. The online space that was my neat little retreat from reality and has been subverted by it. The wild west days of the internet are gone. Grieving for the retro nostalgia can never bring it back, it was supposed to be experienced in the moment not reenacted.

Yes I am. And to clarify the 'obviously' statements were ironizing in character.
Also I am pleased to read from a fellow psychonaut on here. Sobriety preachers have taken over most of civilization and driven us into a cope to death with the despair of living in this awful atmosphere. The double standard of escapism through other SOCIALLY-ACCEPTABLE methodics seems to be a recycled christian morality. Life sucks? Eat, Drink, Piss, Shit, Work, Sleep cyclical tasks are too much for you? Then the moralist will go 'just socialize more bro, drugs are not the answer' - but society itself is a mind-numbing drug of idiocy as it manifests now in consumerist culture. They don't care about the structure of it, rather the act of participation and what merits their social reputation. It is just an example, but it is the most annoying one. A bored dog gets its throat slit by the moral drug-free youths' lifestyle, because it was simply too much of a bad influence for their puritan parade. Social-psychopaths don't want you to escape their influence or reach wisdom in alternative ways they have not approved of or perscribed, only they are supposed to teach you how to benefit them. It can never be ad hoc, always indirect paternalistic nudges which deflect any critiques targeted towards capitalism and its proponents. Zombies criticizing drug users for being zombies while the latter does not wish to eat no one's brains, but instead seeks to reach wisdom for itself.

Y'know people might laugh, but I think Guayana actually banned Intraracial marriage: i.e. mandated race mixing. The integralists in Brazil in particular went into this "Race Mixing revitalized our people" thing, and ᴉuᴉlossnW is on record saying "mixing usually improves a race's vitality.

I think something Fascists can flirt with is, as you said, the liberal melting pot project. Y'know just go all out and say "You can find every culture/race on earth in America. To be American means to be a product of vastly different groups coming together and so we're a product of all of them.

You could get some bizarre mish-mash then; like Kente Cloth Kimonos or something. Though I think it'd be less "breeding camps" and more tax subsidies and censorship of any "racialist" doctrine… including ostensibly "progressive" ones.

The thing is that chaos has to appear existential. Like the Fascists in Italy and Germany could point to the USSR’s flaws, real or imagined, and say “that’s what we’re fighting.” The pitch to the skilled professionals and small business owners that make up the middle class is “if we don’t do this, they’re going to take your property, line you up against a wall, and shoot you.”

Like it isn’t just that the Unions are doing anything, it’s that the feedback of propaganda is convincing people that the unions are part of some plot that ends with mass murder and destruction. The fascists step in and huff “we’ve stopped the Bolsheviks!” And earn support from people afraid those scary union fellows are gonna kill them if they get what they want.

I’ll say this, one potential benefit of America being so ignorant about what Communism is, is that they could look at the Amazon union and think “Ha! He’s really sticking it to that commie Jeff Bezos!” It’s why for as unlikely as a true revival of white nationalism in America is, Tucker is still clever for appealing to some residual White Anxieties about “Black people coming into our town to murder/rob us”. I suspect this is also why the Right has mostly ignored the rising pro-union sentiment in favor of seething over social activism—they’re convinced one is unimportant and the other wants to steal their stuff and make them gay. You look at old 19th and 20th century anti union propaganda and it’s kind of similar to how the Right treats groups like BLM today. It’s all disheveled, barely human hordes of perpetually drunk thugs that are irrationally coming to get you. While that works when you’ve got a significant population of self-sufficient farmers, small business owners, and professionals, the fact now is that the farmers have been broadly sidelined by agricultural corporations, small business ownership has shrunk as Capital monopolizes, and most professionals will generally have to eat crow while they’re working on their degree—work a job at some shitty retail or restaurant chain, mostly. Racial animosity is the best threat they can come up with currently.

I have similar thinking but I find them so repulsive that I wonder whether they'll amount to much more than a sectarian internet cult. While there's fascists in their mix, it's also a highly vulgarized Stalinism (or Stalinoid-ism) from one angle but somehow manages to take positions that would've gotten them shot by Stalin, while trying to cosplay being a hack party apparatchik, which is just sicko shit. Fan cult for state news outlets. If anything their worship of the almighty "state" and recognition by Russian propaganda outlets as a measure of their own value seems like it would generate apathy, dependency, and helplessness, with the paranoid "everything is CIA" aspects being largely inimical to collective organizing.

>I saw "Midwestern Marx" apparently condemn antisemitism while discussing "Finance Capital" and a chunk of his followers started posting (((them))) conspiracies outright.

They had also edited the tweet as they said "Jewish workers are not the enemy. Finance capital is the enemy." Or something like that. Then they changed it to "Jewish people." But the implication from the first one is that finance capital are essentially the "bad Jews." In other words, the fascists are onto something, (((finance capital))) because what they said it was all along. There's a weird mental association in the framing, and then they started left-punching and whining like babies about leftists slandering and misunderstanding them rather than challenging the anti-Semites in their own replies.

Which is a pattern with Midwestern Marx. I've seen them over and over again present information with a right-wing encoding or framework, although I think they might cynically think that their mission is to turn groypers into Marxists. It's like a kind of ass-backwards Leninism that looks at the would-be Black Hundreds and says: "ah, look, those guys don't want things to go on in the same old way!" when groups like that should, dialectically, emerge as a countervailing force when systems are in crisis mode. The ruling class, reactionary forces, etc. also don't want things to go on in the same old way.

I've seen some other patsoc stuff, like an account called "Pamphlets" that says it's communist, pro-Xi, multipolarist, but when they talk about what socialism is, according to them, it's very similar to Nazi economic rhetoric (although much of even that was abandoned in practice because it got in the way of rearmament), but also badly written and amateur-ish.

Yknow I’ve gone back and forth on the PatSoc thing, in the sense I broadly agree that, yes, the Left has broadly alienated itself from the American working class by playing up some foreign comprador image. I’d seen Leftists online make fun of a pic of an 8 year old breaking out in tears because his dad, a marine, died in combat. Then you’ve got the RCP and their inflammatory flag burning.

I think to some extent there’s a lack of empathy of a kind. It is alienating yourself from the wider community. People can talk about international solidarity all they want, but to most Americans vets are their coworkers, the kid crying over his dead dad looks like our son, cousin, little brother, etc. It just seems antisocial.

At the same time, excessive displays of “patriotism” seems absurd. Unnatural even. Most of us aren’t going around making “patriotism” our personality. I think there’s something to be said about wanting your country to prosper, wanting your neighbors to live happy and healthy lives, without literally hugging the flag.

It has always seemed to encourage an "us vs. them" attitude – so who's "them?" People who are not Americans. Or even people who are Americans, just not the right kind.

Anecdotally, back in my hometown, there are many new immigrant families and black families who have moved in for the first time, and I suspect it's not a coincidence two white guys on my parents' block put up their MAGA flags (one with Trump as Rambo), and I know one immigrant guy who lives on the block (he's from Thailand) and doesn't like it. Some black grade-school kids also didn't like it, said it was racist, and one of the kids threw a rock through one of those guys' windows.

I think one problem people have is anticipating the reactions of other people to their behavior. It's like people in this country think that if they create an aura of aggression around themselves, then people won't want to mess with them, when the reality is that it tends to breed more resistance, or generate political forces that will come back to harm them.

while the left needs to be more normal and agreeable in general, it is admittedly hard to do that while maintaining an appropriately strict line on anti-imperialism and there is a point where its not worth ever playing to what are essentially petit-bourgeois nationalist sensibilities, even if those sensibilities are embraced by the proletariat, especially considering the american proletariat is extremely eager to be accepted into the ranks of the petit-bourgeois. my policy is dont unnecessarily provoke, but also dont hide my feelings and dont coddle. i wont go out of my way to ruin the barbeque but if you ask me what i think ill tell you i think the US is an unredeemable empire that has been unsalvageable since it abandoned reconstruction.

all that said, "patsocs" arent just socialists that feel fuzzy about american symbolism and history like say the 30s CPUSA which was a different thing entirely, "patsocs" are actively "socially conservative" and way too invested in owning the libs. if you want to warm up to americans with patriotic sentiments, there are far more of the type of patriotic liberal democrats from small town wisconsin or pennsylvania who fly the flag and "believe in america" but foam at the mouth whenever they see a MAGA flag, who would be much more willing to listen to you talk about socialism. but these "patsoc" types are simply just reactionaries who have found a different flavor of the same old american middle class fetishism for the "real working class", which in their mind always has way more to do with trucks, boots, and lighthearted racism than it does with only living by selling your work to bosses

I’d like to use a personal anecdote here. So, my dad had a major impact on my life and views… and not necessarily in a good way. If anything it’s the funhouse mirror version of a lot of “kids with crazy right wing parents” tales. If anything my dad proved to me that you could be a vocal feminist and agnostic, some liberal with that cringe pink pussy hat, and still abuse your family, condemn everyone around you for character flaws, and act like a raging narcissist. Often enough I’d spend entire evenings outside the house, just waiting at my local parish for my dad to calm down or go to sleep so I could tiptoe back home.

Anyways I’ve jokingly called him “some kind of liberal third worldist” before. Let me elaborate now. We’d have these long, uncomfortable car rides where occasionally he’d talk and say shit like “America is dead last in math, reading, and science—know what were number one in? Arrogance.” In one of his most groan inducing exercises in self importance, he even said
>”I’m not about the whole ‘America, rah rah!’ Thing. I consider myself something like a Benedict Arnold type.”
I’m not joking. Those were his words. And I could tell then, I think, this was just another way of him smugly asserting his superiority over the rest of us—“the unevolved” was his pejorative of choice. Ysee the unevolved all drank, voted Republican, and hit their wife and kids. Evolved folks like him were sober and voted democrat while hitting their wife and kids.

This isn’t to say I became some Bible Thumping rah-rah nationalist in response, but I think anti-nationalism or oikophobia or whatever you want to call it was made permanently alien to me. Flawed as it is, I can’t take the plunge into hating my country or countrymen.

There were only a few moments where I think I could claim to feel a kind of patriotism. Probably the one that stands out the most happened a few years ago. This woman came through my line smiling ear to ear, I asked how her day went and she was just beaming—“terrific!” I ask why, and she said it was the day she’d finally become an American citizen, after years of trying. Yknow her happiness was contagious, she was just so excited to be an American officially. I felt a kind of kinship, a national feeling then. I told her I was happy to call her a fellow American and got her a bouquet of flowers to celebrate. She gave me a big hug.

I don’t know exactly why I’m typing all this out. Maybe I feel obligated to explain myself. To me, I suppose, America is a totality. I see the bubbly immigrant lady, the friendly Muslimah who shops in my store, the vets, my coworkers, even the jerks as all part of some thing called America. I work with people who were born in Romania and people from Jamaica, I work with Asians, Blacks, Whites, and at the end of the day they’re all American to me. I, too, am an American.

the "comprador" pejorative works in an exploited/colonized periphery nation where there's a clear split between a national bourgeoisie that develops nationalized productive forces and a comprador bourgeoisie that takes foreign loans and let's imperial core porky own everything. In america the left is not playing up any kind of comprador image. We're insulting the empire and if this is "alienating" to anyone it's not to the class conscious proletariat but to the lumpenproletariat and petit bourgeoisie who believe rhetoric like "war on terror" or "spreading democracy" is really true.

You take debates seriously even they are a meaningless game that has zero consequences because it makes it more entertaining for you. Presidential debates are more retarded than even high school US policy debate, and it's the only impactful thing debate amounts to.
Norm vs Destiny was a rehash of Buckley vs Chomsky. Like Foucault vs Chomsky it's all quite safe because they alike uphold imperialist ideals. It's all safe. Chomsky brags America is better than "totalitarian states" because he is allowed to speak. Foucault says you should skip school and spread your cheeks. Buckley bathes in more attention, being owned had no negative on his career. Norm struggles to contain himself from going into anecdotes about how he was an important member of Chomsky's milieu.

The radical right is anti-political so can only hold meaningful power in culture (and in communal forms like militias/gangs).
The idea of the POTUS heiling hitler is impossible. America is founded on liberalism. The nation itself is a revolution, like the french republic or the british constitutional monarchy..
You have to remember too that the fascist powers of germany and italy where revolutions establishing a nation based on shared peoples (just like how the soviet coat of arms shows the national unity between the peasants and proles [the country and the towns, in classical distinction, which marx also identifies.]) It was a form of modernisation, the same way high speed rail is.

I mean that right wing praxis is something which generally strengthens the system by agitation, and is performed by individual actors usually, but it wins moral support of the generally disaffected. There is no right wing "theory", there is only anti-leftist theory, because the right is a movement of negation to ruling powers. This is why populism is always right wing, because it is pure vox. We can all imagine the disaster that direct democracy would be for the left.
I would say fascists are largely allergic to central organisation, and operate in dispirate insurrectionary efforts. The blackshirts for example were a gang who fought striking workers (the same way hitler saw strikes and unions as communist filth) and so were appointed to power by the ruling class. What pervaded in the fascist scene was the very platform of experimentation in art and politics, which flip-flopped between free markets and regulations, progressive and reactionary, and so on. The radical right has no central identity and so its power is always contingent and short-lasting. Like trotskyists say, it can be attributed to "capitalism in decline" which gives it the shortness of recovery in militarisation.
But someone like evola (who was not quite a "fascist", but was still sympathetic) was still against the bourgeoisie in spirit and fought for an aristocracy of the soul, the same way nietzsche did. Someone like yockey also actually collaborated with the USSR to find noble kin against the decadence of america, and killed himself because of his betrayal (at the cost of torture).
So, this "aristocracy of the soul" might indicate something substantive, but its still ambiguous and "anti-political" in its meaning. It is only the consolidation of a new sort of power itself.
Today however there are efforts to create a right-wing vanguard and so to create a political consciousness, with various strains offering their place into the pool of a counter-elite, but still, there is no doctrine, there is only reaction.

Why do you think American fascism would look like European fascism? The people you are talking about LARP as Europeans, but there were bunch of fascists walking into the parliament with the police doing fuck all. If fascism is coming to the US it's not gonna market itself as fascism - defeating the Nazis is still part of the American identity, similar to the Russia, surprisingly, where nazis call themselves liberal democrats.

So what could American fascism look like? I assume it would be heavily influenced by Evangelicals, with people like Copeland as grey eminence behind the scenes. It'd still call itself democratic, capitalist and classical liberal.

I guess I disagree here. America has a democratic tradition, but it was designed to be dysfunctional. Considering the crazy gridlock system of American politics, there is not much reshuffling needed for a power grab. Weimar Germany was also democratic, but dysfunctional, and Hitler took power by legal means. I don't know how the bureaucratic strata of the US ticks, which is necessary as a power base for fascism.

There's a liberal blog I follow with a comment section of boomers (who tend to be more educated), and when the left comes up or talking about the far left in the 1970s in the U.S., there are usually some people who will tell stories like "oh yeah, I was a Maoist" or knowing people in the Weather Underground at the time, or are former Communist Party members. Now they're just Democrats. But often the discussions about which *gestures to vague ideological assortment of people* the left should try to appeal to seems rather abstract. It begs the question: to do what? What demand are we making? I have to give credit to the people in the Palestinian youth movement who are organizing sustained demonstrations. They don't seem to care that much about appealing to so-and-so, instead they have clear demands (stop supporting Israel) and are willing to maintain focused pressure. I don't want to exaggerate their effect, but it does seem to have an effect at shifting what's acceptable to say, or creating a space for more people to speak out and break out of feelings of complacency and isolation.

>Those same patriots also believe that populism is the language of tyrants and get repulsed by any movement.

Populism is kind of vague and feels like kind of… giving in to the whims of whatever the "populace" wants while obscuring the political content therein. It has the potential to be democratic but more often than not it seems to acquiesce to the people's prejudices and fears.

Instead, the actual Fascist threat comes from the MAGAtard Evangelical Christian Zionist Republicans, due to the fact that it is the Evangelical Christian Zionist Fundamentalist Superstructure that truly uphold the Base of 21st Century U$ Imperialism (despite all of there lame attempts as “Woke” washing, any in-depth Marxist analysis reveals that the U$ Haute Bourgeoisie subtly prefers Evangelical Christian Zionism, due to the fact Religion is the “OG” opium of the masses, that has a millennia long track record of keeping the Proles/Peasants/Slaves loyal to ruling classes of Capitalist, Feudal, and Slave societies, which can’t be matched by any other Superstructural “Spook”), and posses a Mass Base among the Petit Bourgeois/Labor Aristocratic and Lumpen Proletariat White populations of the U$ South, and Rural/Suburban areas Nationwide, along with growing influence amongst assimilated Hispanics/Asians and the Comprador Bourgeois/“Uncle Tome” strata of Blacks/New Afrikans, with this Superstructure having ZERO need for Old fashioned White Nationalism and Racial “purity”, which is not dismiss that structural/systemic Racism still exists (it obviously does, as evidenced by the fact that New Afrika, Aztlan, and the First Nations are Oppressed Nations/Internal Colonies that are denied Self-Determination, with Mass Incarceration/“The War on Drugs” in particular being used to systemically oppress/corral/exploit these populations more then the White Settler majority), cut instead to suggest that the methods of 21st Century systemic/structural Racism have become abstracted to a point that makes them fundamentally different then the openly White Nationalist superstructure that existed before the 1960s, with a great example of this being that assimilated/Comprador elements of these Oppressed Nations are given a dramatically more privileged Statius, as long as they vote Republican (the De-Facto Ruling “Party of Power”, in contrast to the Controlled Opposition Democrats used to corral the “undesirable”/“problematic” elements), make money, and worship at Evangelical Megachurches, with the modern Evangelical Christian Zionist Magatard Republican Right subtly promoting “Race Mixing” (ie. most Black Republican politicians marry White women, have Mulatto Children, live in Bourgeois White Suburbs, and have obvious disdain for their Race/Ethnicity/Oppressed Nation), in order to accelerate the assimilation of the Comprador elements of the Oppressed Nations/Settler Colonies of New Afrika/Aztlan/First Nations etc. while the rest of these populations that refuse assimilation into the White Settler Nation are gradually eliminated by the Prison-Industrial Complex in a De-Facto Cultural Genocide, thus showing the Racist Dark side of the “Color Blindness” embraced by the Modern U$ right, 🤢🤮!

Unfortunately, Comrade CPUSA anon, I have to disagree with you on the supposed “Progressive” nature of the Settler-Colonial Frankenstein Prison House of Nations “Melting Pot” Empire known as the U$, compared to the much hated Nation-States of Europe. As unpopular and controversial as this position is in the 21st Century across the entire U$ political spectrum (from the MAGAtard Evengelical Christian Zionists, to the Democrats, to U$ Revisionist “Communists”), it is no accident that Lenin and Stalin supported the Self-Determination of all Oppressed Nations in their own SSRs or ASSRs, with Soviet National Delimitation based almost exclusively on Ethno-Linguistic demographics, because as much as many want to claim that Nation-States are inherently Reactionary, they are Progressive compared to the alternative, which is De-Facto “Multinational” Settler-Colonial Empires where one specific ethnic group holds most political power and all the rest are oppressed and violently deprived of their National Self-Determination, thus creating a situation of De-Facto internal Colonies (ie. New Afrika, Aztlan, the First Nations, etc.), and this prevents Class Consciousness amongst the Proletariat as their is always a ready scapegoat for the Bourgeoise to use to corral the Proles from ever revolting against them due to them being to busy fighting each other over Ethno-Nationalist (Anti-Black and Anti-Immigrant sentiment, with this not limited just to White Proles, but also highly assimilated Hispanic/Asian ones as well) and/or Religious Culture War (ie. Homophobia, Transphobia, Sexism and general Pruidishness, as seen in Abortion Bans and “Groomer”/QAnon Moral Panics), due to the extreme Christian Fundamentalism amongst 50% of the U$ population. Thus, it is clear that the Settler-Colonial and Mutinational nature, combined with the Ultra-Reactionary Evangelical Protestant Superstructure (this traces its roots back to the Puritan Psychos at Plymouth Rock) of the U$, are some of the major reasons the U$ has much weaker Unionization and Social Safety Net then the relatively Secular and Ethnically Homogenous Nation-States in Western Europe (especially Scandinavia), meaning that your thesis that the U$ is more “Progressive” then Europe just because it is more ethnically/racially “mixed” is completely inaccurate and at odds with both the Marxist-Leninist principle of Self Determination for Oppressed Nations, and the objective reality that the U$ is on the verge of transforming into the most deranged Fascist Theocracy in history (it could dare I say, literally surpass Nazi Germany, assuming it concludes in Nuclear World War III with China, which could kill more people then both Prior World Wars combined) that will slaughter Millions at home and abroad if a certain “Orange” Man wins the 2024 election, which really neuters your idealistic assumption that “Pragmatism” is core ideology of U$ history (tell that with a straight face to the Genocided First Nations, New Afrikan Slaves, the Nuked civilians of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, and the 20 million people slaughtered in U$ wars since 1945 across Asia, Latin America, and the Middle East, including the Civilians of Gaza that are being Murdered right now with U$ made Bombs), 😂🤣🤢🤮✊😜!

<Gabriel Rockhill, "Are Fascism and Liberalism Partners in Capitalist Crime?"
>ABSTRACT
>According to the dominant ideology, fascism constitutes an exceptional break with the protocols of liberal democracy, which has only happened at rare moments in the history of the West, such as in ᴉuᴉlossnW’s Italy and Nazi Germany. Liberalism is thereby postulated as a bulwark against fascism, an idea that’s been consolidated through the massive perpetuation of a historical narrative regarding the supposed democratic defeat of Nazism in WWII. This presentation will critically interrogate these assumptions by re-examining the historical relationship between liberal democracy and fascism. Have they always been opposed to one another, or do they sometimes work in concert as two capitalist ideologies? Is it really the case that liberal democratic governments in the imperial core serve as safeguards against fascism? If so, what are we to make of their imperialist foreign policies, their colonial histories, their general tolerance toward fascists, and their current domestic practices of draconian policing, mass incarceration, the militarization of borders, and the empowerment of vigilante militias? In addressing these and parallel questions, this talk will seek to develop a refined dialectical understanding of fascism and liberalism as capitalist modes of governance that are often partners in crime, while also avoiding any simplistic, ultra-leftist conflation between them.

Now to just throw that fishing pole in the water

>But while Huawei's compensation package is generous, its working culture can be challenging, according to chip industry managers.

>"Working with them is brutal. It's not 996 – meaning working from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m., six days a week. … It will literally be 007 – from midnight to midnight, seven days a week. No days off at all," one Chinese chip engineer told Nikkei Asia. "The contract will be for three years, [but] the majority of people can't survive till renewal."


>Semiconductor equipment, like chips themselves, have been caught in the crosshairs of U.S. export controls. Washington has lobbied allies Japan and the Netherlands to implement similar restrictions on the export of advanced chip tools to limit China's access to them.

This might be worth an effortpost later; but I was reading Oswald Mosley's "The Philosophy of Fascism" and I think he incidentally hit on a perfect metaphor to explain the dividing line between Fascists and Communists.

I'm paraphrasing him a bit, but he brought up Caesar contra Spartacus. I think this is a fascinating comparison because it's, I'd argue, an ideal both sides aspire towards. The Fascist admires Caesar (as Mosley openly did) and the Communist admires Spartacus (as Marx, again, openly did). His argument was that Caesar as a historical personage as well as an ideal was opposed to both the elite patrician classes who were responsible for the decay of the old Republic, and the "chaos" unleashed by Spartacus.

It's an interesting comparison that I think strikes at the two paths a potential radical could go down. On one hand, you have Caesar: a man of excellent talent who nevertheless destroyed a corrupt and stagnant Republic to institute some kind of order. On the other, you have Spartacus: a slave who chose to die in the pursuit of freedom rather than scrape for Roman approval. It's less a specific category and more a state of mind: do you see yourself overcoming the Republic to save the society? Or do you see yourself as fundamentally a victim of that Republic, and thus destroying it to liberate yourself? It's something worth reflecting on at least.
