wtf I hate fascism now

2017-07-20 16:09:21 UTC  

Socialism is what he means

2017-07-20 16:09:44 UTC  

I know

2017-07-20 16:09:52 UTC  

but its retarded wording

2017-07-20 16:10:43 UTC  


2017-07-20 16:10:50 UTC  

It's an internet quiz tbf

2017-07-20 16:10:56 UTC  

"It's a mix of every single political persuasion' radical centrism

2017-07-20 16:10:59 UTC  

They're not written by smart people

2017-07-20 16:11:20 UTC  

A lot of scholars viewed fascism as a form of radical centrism

2017-07-20 16:11:30 UTC  

Moreso prior to ww2 than today

2017-07-20 16:12:03 UTC  

@ooga booga fascism confirmed for authoritarian centrist?

2017-07-20 16:12:13 UTC  

We are too intelligent tbh

2017-07-20 16:12:24 UTC  

authoritarian intelligentism

2017-07-20 16:13:00 UTC  

I've seen some more self aware commies describe fascism as centrism between socialism and capitalism

2017-07-20 16:13:15 UTC  

it kinda is yeah

2017-07-20 16:13:20 UTC  

The whole political spectrum is arbitrary

2017-07-20 16:13:32 UTC  

And people use different criteria anyways

2017-07-20 16:13:38 UTC  

eh it gets less arbitrary the more dimensions you split it into

2017-07-20 16:13:59 UTC  


2017-07-20 16:15:04 UTC  

It's weird when people tell me that fascism is far right

2017-07-20 16:15:12 UTC  

I just don't see it that way

2017-07-20 16:16:19 UTC  

It really depends on who you ask

2017-07-20 16:17:25 UTC  

It's syncretic so you can't really define it that way

2017-07-20 16:17:56 UTC  

Though different movements or factions within a movement tend to be more right or left

2017-07-20 16:18:45 UTC  

I'm more Capitalist Fascist honestly

2017-07-20 16:19:10 UTC  

My brother is a plain AnCap though

2017-07-20 16:19:13 UTC  

True, fascism personifies differently in their respective nations

2017-07-20 16:19:36 UTC  

Isn't fascism basically just the idea that a bundle of twigs is harder to break?

2017-07-20 16:19:46 UTC  

The rise of a fascist Alt-Middle

2017-07-20 16:19:51 UTC  


facism > all others

2017-07-20 16:20:17 UTC  

It's an all encompassing worldview

2017-07-20 16:20:18 UTC  

You know, than a single twig?

2017-07-20 16:20:28 UTC  

That's just common sense

2017-07-20 16:21:04 UTC  

The Irish fascists were interesting

2017-07-20 16:21:06 UTC  

What form of Fascism do you follow?

2017-07-20 16:21:07 UTC  

We had many forms

2017-07-20 16:21:24 UTC  

Ailtirí na hAiséirghe were interesting

2017-07-20 16:21:32 UTC  

Translates to the Architects of the Ressurection

2017-07-20 16:21:55 UTC  

Personally to me, I figured the essense of fascism at least was that a people united are harder to break than an atomised people
