What is Modern Fascism?

Why Modern Leftists Are Fascists – Return Of Kings

The fascism of the 1900s is no more. With the fall of communism, democracy and familiar autocracy has risen without competition for nearly a generation. But in media we find it again and again, ‘fascism is on the rise’. But where is it? What is fascism in this new context? Honest conversations about fascism are hard to have. Often in fear that our audience may come to agree with the axioms of the struggle we, much like in a discussion of communism, need to preface our talk by saying it is in fact evil. In our childish attempts to make the world feel less chaotic we tell the comforting lie that men are the product of their environment and not a product of individual malevolence. We do ourselves a great disservice by engaging in this exercise. First because fascists do not agree that evil comes from circumstance and second because in a democracy those who treat the masses like sheep who are to be herded into enlightenment are destined to be surprised by the existence of wolves. The innovations of the mass rally, the working class militia, the rancor against the rising tides of liberalism and bolshevism has all been subverted and rolled into the democratic framework. It is difficult now to differentiate between a populist and a fascist, those who extol the virtue and love of the nation between those who praise the nation-state. Who is to say which is the fascist? Modern fascism is far more nuanced than many want to believe.
