In contrast to the asexual chasteness of official communist art , Nazi art is both prurient and idealizing. A utopian aesthetics (physical perfection; identity as a biological given) implies an ideal eroticism: sexuality converted into the magnetism of leaders and the joy of followers. The fascist ideal is to transform sexual energy into a "spiritual" force, for the benefit of the community.
Not God but a swastika So black no sky could squeak through. Every woman adores a Fascist, The boot in the face, the brute Brute heart of a brute like you.Sylvia Plath
It is usual to speak of the Fascist objective as the "beehive state", which does grave injustice to bees. A world of rabbits ruled by stoats would be nearer the mark.george orwell
We have won on the Arlov, Kursk, Belgorod, and Kharkov grounds. We won because the country was being defended not only by the army but by the entire Soviet people. The Socialist economy, Soviet political structure, and Marxist-Leninist ideology proved their unarguable excellence against the Fascist economy, Fascist political structure, and Fascist ideology of Germany.hovhannes bagramyan
Fascist organizations were being generously financed by big business in various parts of the Countrytim buck
Although [in 1937] we might still hope to prevent the divisions of Europe into Fascist and anti-Fascist camps, our real affinities and interests, strategic as well as political, lay with France, a fact which some of my colleagues were most reluctant to realise.anthony eden
It's best that you know this immediately: I have never been a Fascist, but always a soldier who obeyed orders.rodolfo graziani
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
The Fascist accepts life and loves it, knowing nothing of and despising suicide; he rather conceives of life as duty and struggle and conquest, life which should be high and full, lived for oneself, but not above all for others those who are at hand and those who are far distant, contemporaries, and those who will come after.benito mussolini
The struggle between the two worlds [Fascism and Democracy] can permit no compromises. The new cycle which begins with the ninth year of the Fascist regime places the alternative in even greater relief either we or they, either their ideas or ours, either our State or theirs!benito mussolini
"Democratic" State practice is nothing more or less than State practice. It does not differ from Marxist State practice, Fascist State practice, or any other. Here is the Golden Rule of sound citizenship, the first and greatest lesson in the study of politics: you get the same order of criminality from any State to which you give power to exercise it; and whatever power you give the State to do things for you carries with it the equivalent power to do things to you.albert jay nock
You and I both know that there can be no real solution of the Indian problem which does not also benefit Britain. Either we all live in a decent world, or nobody does. It is so obvious, is it not, that the British worker as well as the Indian peasant stands to gain by the ending of capitalist exploitation, and that Indian independence is a lost cause if the Fascist nations are allowed to dominate the world.george orwell
It is no accident that the Labour Party of 1964 should share this craving for autarchy, for economic self-sufficiency, with the pre-war Fascist régimes and the present-day Communist states. They are all at heart totalitarian.enoch powell
I hope those who shouted "Fascist" and "Nazi" are aware that before they were born I was fighting against Fascism and Nazism.enoch powell
Every communist has a Fascist frown, every Fascist a communist smile.
We must constantly encourage Western journalists to write precisely the opposite of our real intentions and anyone who writes or speaks about our real intentions accurately or impartially in the Western sense of these words must quickly be dismissed and ridiculed as someone of the Right or a Fascist, someone who wants to bring back McCarthyism.ivan agayants
If I announce the armistice and the Americans don't send sufficient reinforcements and don't land near Rome, the Germans will seize the city and put in a puppet Fascist government.pietro badoglio
He became a Roman Catholic, but an unpleasantly militant one, sharing the hysterically nihilist mood of some of the Fascist rebels in Spain... He himself was no Fascist, simply a naïve who lamented – but without ever bothering to take serious thought – modern technology’s erosion of individuality.roy campbell
Barbara Cartland, witch and hag. Too much make-up, Fascist bag.barbara cartland
In organized groups such as the army or the Church there is either no mention of love whatsoever between the members, or it is expressed only in a sublimated and indirect way, through the mediation of some religious imagine in the love of whom the members unite and whose all-embracing love they are supposed to imitate in their attitude towards each other. ... It is one of the basic tenets of Fascist leadership to keep primary libidinal energy on an unconscious level so as to divert its manifestations in a way suitable to political ends.theodor adorno
Instead of gambling on the eternal impossibility of the revolution and on the Fascist return of a war-machine in general, why not think that a new type of revolution is in the course of becoming possible , and that all kinds of mutating, living machines conduct wars, are combined and trace out a plane of consistance which undermines the plane of organization of the World and the States?gilles deleuze
This is extraordinary. We live in a culture where the terms Fascist and racist are thrown about, if anything, too easily and too frequently. Yet here is a man whose every word and deed is easily explicable once you know the single essential thing about him: He is a member of a Fascist splinter group that believes it is the salvation of the Catholic Church.mel gibson
The action genre has always had a Fascist potential, and it surfaces in this movie.Pauline Kael
I owe most to Georges Sorel. This master of syndicalism by his rough theories of revolutionary tactics has contributed most to form the discipline, energy and power of the Fascist cohorts.benito mussolini
The term "political correctness" has always appalled me, reminding me of Orwell 's "Thought Police" and Fascist regimes.
Nobody can ask us to abjure our Fascist roots.
We have no right to disown our own shame in the upbringing of the beast from whom we have so lately been delivered. There was no country in Europe without its Fascist party, and this at a time before the label appeared likely to prove safe or profitable.
They can't ignore us, and they can't put us down. Thank God for the Internet, or we wouldn't know anything, and we would already be a Fascist state.

Strangely, it is always America that is described as degenerate and 'Fascist', while it is solely in Europe that actual dictatorships and totalitarian regimes spring up.
