Nick P writes at Black Sun Gazette:
Fascism is more than a nationalist, authoritarian, right-wing political movement. It has certain characteristics which are specific to it, and do not exist in every right-wing political movement. Fascism, so far as I am concerned, is not a cohesive political ideology. Rather, it is a grab bag of “everything and the kitchen sink, too” that serves the needs of the ruling class in utterly destroying independent political and social movement by the working class. Much of my analysis of what fascism is and how it works is lifted directly from Leon Trotsky’s Fascism: What It Is and How To Fight It. I hope to, in my small way, concretize Trotsky’s work for America in 2009. While it is always dangerous to throw around the word “fascism” like a political curse word, make no mistake about it: there is a definite move toward fascism in America. It is very real, it is very dangerous, and the existing liberal parliamentary institutions and the rule of law will not protect you.
