Questions to ask about Fascism and Nazism

Fascism attacks the whole complex of democratic ideologies and rejects them both in their theoretical premises and in their applications or practical manifestations. Fascism denies that the majority, through the mere fact of being a majority, can rule human societies; it denies that this majority can govern by means of a periodical consultation; it affirms the irremediable, fruitful and beneficent inequality of men, who cannot be levelled by such a mechanical and extrinsic fact as universal suffrage.

  1. If you agree with the above, does that make you a fascist?
  2. Is universal suffrage moral, rational, practicable and sustainable?
  3. What is your definition of Fascism?
  4. Is it possible that Fascism as an ideology is perfectly sound and moral, if only Mussolini had not ruined things by taking too many risks?
  5. Was General Franco a Fascist?
  6. Is Fascism really a fancy name for social conservatism?
  7. Was Fascism a reaction against Feminism and International Marxism?
  8. What does Di Canio understand by fascism?
  9. Should Di Canio be made to explain what he as a Fascist proposes to do that the government is not currently doing?
  10. Is Fascism racist?
  11. In what way is fascism different from National Socialism?
  12. Is Nazism the same as National Socialism?
  13. Can one, logically speaking, validly claim to be a National Socialist without being either racist or antisemitic?
  14. What is, for you, the most attractive thing about Nazism?  (a) Hitler and Mein Kampf (b) antisemitism (c) smart uniforms and potent imagery (d) Nazi rallies (e) one-party-ism (f) the idea of German racial superiority
  15. What is wrong or evil about Fascism as expressed at
  16. Fascism declares itself to be the antithesis of liberalism and assumes the evil of Liberalism.  Could Liberalism in some way be so impracticable, irrational and destructive that it is dangerous to the long term national interest?
  17. Can Fascism be separated from aggressive militarism and an expansionist foreign policy involving the invasion of other people's lands?  
  18. If Fascism cannot be separated from aggressive militarism and an expansionist foreign policy, in what way is Liberal interventionism in Iraq, Afghanistan and Libya in practice different from Italian Fascist and German Nazi foreign policy before WW2 in terms of military aggression?
  19. Is Fascism considered undesirable and evil just because it was associated with the failed dictator Mussolini?
  20. If Liberalism eventually fails does that mean it is also undesirable and evil?
  21. Why are we so sure that Liberalism is not undesirable and not evil?  Could it be that we are told never to question the morality of Liberalism?
  22. Did you know that there is Fascist insignia in the Oval Office?
  23. Is Fascism just a yearning for national unity, order and strength?
  24. If Fascism is just the political expression of an understandable yearning for national pride, unity, order and strength by patriotic citizens in the face of social disintegration, disorder and weakness caused by Liberalism and Feminism, is it understandable why the Liberal Left so hysterically condemn it as evil?
  25. Does Liberalism and Feminism cause social disintegration, disorder and weakness in a nation?
  26. Is a one-party state the best way of letting the opposing political forces of a nation engage in a continuing battle for supremacy, rather in the same way that a husband and wife might wish to remain married to each other but seek to get their own way in something, under rules that they had both agreed to?
  27. Should we care one way or another what our national ideology is called as long as it gives us good government?
