Ur Fascism Definitions


Read the part about ur-fascism

Summarized here by Gingevere:
"I always go off of Umberto Eco's 14 common characteristics from Ur Fascism.

The cult of tradition.
The rejection of modernism.
The cult of action for action’s sake.
Disagreement is treason.
Fear of difference.
Appeal to social frustration.
The obsession with a plot.
The enemy is both strong and weak.
Pacifism is trafficking with the enemy.
Contempt for the weak.
Everybody is educated to become a hero.
Machismo and weaponry.
Selective populism.
Ur-Fascism speaks Newspeak.

You could make a bingo cards out of these points and I guarantee you'll get a bingo 5 minutes into any trump campaign speech. The Rally on the morning of the 6th was particularly heavy with these points."
