The Dangerous History Podcast - Ep. 0056: Fun with Fascism!


Ep. 0056: Fun with Fascism!

This is not a historical narrative of any particular fascist regime or regimes.  Instead, it’s an exploration of what fascism — arguably the most slippery of modern “isms” to define — really is.
Join Prof CJ as he discusses:
  •  Some quotes from the father of Fascism, Benito Mussolini, to get things started
  • Why fascism is tougher to nail down than other isms
  • What fascism is and isn’t, including some criticism of the standard “Left-to-Right” political spectrum
  • A look at some of the defining elements of fascism, using John T. Flynn’s As We Go Marching (1944) as a starting point
  • An excerpt from the Nazi Party’s platform dealing with their economic planks, and possible American parallels
  • A few words on fascism post-World War II
