The Fascist Threat

From 2012 by a friend of Against Crony Capitalism. If you really want to understand crony capitalism (and fascism) read this piece. It’s long. It’s challenging. But it is high quality reading.

Fascism is real. It is here. And it is not what many people think it is.

“Participatory Fascism” is the future?

By Robert Higgs

“Socialism with Chinese characteristics” = Chinese fascism
“American capitalism” = American fascism
“Post-Communism in Russia” = Russian fascism
“Scandinavian Third Way” = Scandinavian fascism
“Italian fascism” = Italian fascism
“German fascism” = German fascism
“European corporatism” = European fascism

Are you starting to see a pattern?

Many people continue to perceive the presence or impending advent of socialism here, there, and everywhere. But full-fledged socialism is almost extinct.

Bill Nye wants the Social Security System to implode? : He asks, Is It Time To ‘Penalize People For Having Extra Kids?’

Bill Nye is a piece of work.

This is fundamentally what “progressivism” is all about – micromanaging humanity. There are the planners. And then there is YOU. You are to be managed. YOUR LIFE is to be planned by your “betters.” You know like…Ahem…Bill Nye?

Some people are just control freaks. I believe it’s deep in their DNA. They fear everything and as such need to control everything. This is at the core of the “progressive”

Is Donald Trump a Fascist?

It’s important to understand what fascism actually is if one is going to cry “fascism.” Many people have an extremely confused understanding of what fascism is. They think it’s about a certain style. They think it’s about social norms. It’s not primarily.

Fascism is an economic system first and foremost as is explained below. It is about big government control over everything with nominally private firms. (Sound familiar?) That is what fascism is about.

KU Flyer: Anarcho-Capitalists and Students Who Oppose Safe Spaces Are Probably Secret Nazis

For the record anarcho-capitalism is diametrically opposed to fascism which as we have explained is really a form of socialism. (Fascism is a partnership between nominally private business and the state.) Anarcho-capitalists are if anything the heirs to the legacy of classical liberalism which is about open minds, open markets, liberty, and human actualization.

Crony capitalism and socialism are sisters: A great example of oil cronyism in Venezuela (VIDEO)

As we say occasionally “crony capitalism” is a polite way of saying “fascism” or “fascism-lite.” Fascism is when corporations and the state partner up with each other for control. But it is always the state which is in charge. Mussolini didn’t bow to the owners of Alpha Romeo nor Hitler to the chiefs at Porsche.

And despite what some people unfortunately still believe fascism is indeed a form of socialism, the Nazis were of course the National Socialist Party.

Oliver Stone slams tech giants accusing them of “collaborating” with the government, calls it “form of fascism”

Oliver Stone is not my favorite guy in the world. He has said and done a number of things with which I strongly do not not agree. However he is a hell of a director and Wall Street and Platoon rank in my personal all time top 20 movies. And he is absolutely correct about the cozy relationship between some tech companies, particularly Google (which has visited the White House far more than any other company during Obama’s presidency) and the government.

Head of Hungarian central bank “has funneled the equivalent of almost $1 billion to six foundations he set up”

$1 billion is a lot of money, even in the United States. In tiny Hungary it is however a massive sum. This, according to a report from Bloomberg is the amount the head of the Hungarian central bank has siphoned off for himself, friends, and allies in just 3 years. It appears to be a brazen and Putinesque (not a coincidence) act of crony capitalism. And Hungary is not the wealthiest country in Europe either.
