in many respects fascism not only is here but has been here for nearly a century. For what we call liberalism--the refurbished edifice of American Progressivism--is in fact a descendant and manifestation of fascism.
Growing terrorism, permissive societies, democracy collapsing through lack of law and order. If things continue on their present track, the disintegration of Western societies will occur much sooner than you think under the hammer blows of fascism and communism. Freedom is not something that does not have a breaking point, and your enemies would like you to reach that point.muhammad reza pahlavi
It will be seen that, as used, the word ‘fascism’ is almost entirely meaningless. In conversation, of course, it is used even more wildly than in print. I have heard it applied to farmers, shopkeepers, Social Credit, corporal punishment, fox-hunting, bull-?ghting, the 1922 Committee, the 1941 Committee, Kipling, Gandhi, Chiang Kai-Shek, homosexuality, Priestley’s broadcasts, Youth Hostels, astrology, women, dogs and I do not know what else.george orwell
You are reminded that this subject has a national reputation through her writings in which she has opposed Nazism and fascism. Under no circumstances should it be known that this bureau is conducting an investigation of her. It should be handled in a most discreet manner and under no circumstances should it be assigned to the local police or some other agency.lillian hellman
...There is fascism , leading only into the blackness which it has chosen as its symbol, into smartness and yapping out of orders,and self-righteous brutality, into social as well as international war. It means change without hope. Our immediate duty- in that tinkering which is the only useful form of action in our leaky old tub-our immediate duty is to stop it.e. m. forster
Progressivism was a sister movement of fascism, and today's liberalism is the daughter of Progressivism.Liberal Fascism (2008), p. 5. (Quotes)
Any politico who's afraid of his constituents being armed, should be. Leaders of the anti-gun movement (for the most part, politicians who enthusiastically advocate confiscatory taxation and government control of everything) realize that a populace is much easier to herd, loot and dispose of if it has been stripped of its weapons. The naked fraud and transparent fascism of victim disarmament must be eradicated through the repeal of all gun laws at every level of government.L. Neil Smith, "The Brontosaurus in the Broom Closet," The Libertarian Enterprise, 18 October 2009
Communism and fascism or nazism, although poles apart in their intellectual content, are similar in this, that both have emotional appeal to the type of personality that takes pleasure in being submerged in a mass movement and submitting to superior authority .James A.C. Brown, in Techniques of Persuasión : From Propaganda to Brainwashing (1963), p. 105
From the point of view of fundamental human liberties there is little to choose between communism, socialism, and national socialism. They all are examples of the collectivist or totalitarian state ... in its essentials not only is completed socialism the same as communism but it hardly differs from fascism.Ivor Thomas, in The Socialist Tragedy (1951), p. 241
We are the first victims of American fascism!Who: Ethel Rosenberg
The common elements of fascism , such as extreme nationalism , social Darwinism , the leadership principle, elitism, anti-liberalism, anti- egalitarianism , anti- democracy , intolerance , glorification of war , the supremacy of the state and anti- intellectualism , together form of a rather loose doctrine .Hitler’s Fascism, in Political Ideology Today
In order for the wheel to turn, for life to be lived, impurities are needed, and the impurities of impurities in the soil, too, as is known, if it is to be fertile. Dissension, diversity, the grain of salt and mustard are needed: fascism does not want them, forbids them, and that’s why you’re not a Fascist; it wants everybody to be the same, and you are not. But immaculate virtue does not exist either, or if it exists it is detestable.Primo Levi
In a synchronistic way, the Jungian term of great significance for Carolyn Carlson, her art is in accord with Hölderlin's phrase, "Poetically, man dwells on this earth." After the century of fascism, we enter the brave new world of the digital era where bombs are grafted inside the body in a corruption of the word spiritual that Malraux never imagined. For Carlson, the question is no longer, "How to live together?" but rather, "How to live poetically our dwelling place?"On the art of Carolyn Carlson, France Culture interview (December 2012)
fascism was part of the absolute evil. (...) We have to denounce the ashaming pages in the history of our past. (...) There included all the pages related to the discrimination and the persecution of jews and, more in general, of minoritires. And therefore that one [The Italian Social Republic of Salò] is also included.During his trip to Israel Fini in Israele "Il fascismo fu parte del male assoluto", 24 November 2003
Resistants were on the right side, Salò Republic's combatants on the wrong one. (...) One cannot equate who was fighting for a right cause of equality and freedom, and who, apart of goodfaith, was on the wrong side. (...) The judgement of the Right [on fascism] have to be negative, due to freedom limitation. (...) We cannot deny ourselves history, and fascism was a dictatorship that denied some fundamental freedoms.cited in «La destra si riconosca nell'antifascismo», Il Corriere della Sera, 13 September 2008)
fascism, Nazism and Stalinism have in common that they offered the atomized individual a new refuge and security. These systems are the culmination of alienation.Erich Fromm in The Sane Society (1955), p. 237

Marxism has led to fascism and National-Socialism, because, in all essentials, it is fascism and National Socialism.Frederick Augustus Voigt, Unto Cæsar (1939), p. 95
