Where socialism sought totalitarian control of a society’s economic processes through direct state operation of the means of production, fascism sought that control indirectly, through domination of nominally private owners. Where socialism nationalized property explicitly, fascism did so implicitly, by requiring owners to use their property in the “national interest”—that is, as the autocratic authority conceived it. (Nevertheless, a few industries were operated by the state.) Where socialism abolished all market relations outright, fascism left the appearance of market relations while planning all economic activities. Where socialism abolished money and prices, fascism controlled the monetary system and set all prices and wages politically. In doing all this, fascism denatured the marketplace. Entrepreneurship was abolished. State ministries, rather than consumers, determined what was produced and under what conditions. (Editors Note: Trump believes in imminent domain)
- Fascists advocate a mixed economy, with the principal goal of achieving autarky through protectionist and interventionist economic policies.
- The symbolism of the fasces suggested strength through unity: a single rod is easily broken, while the bundle is difficult to break. Similar symbols were developed by different fascist movements: for example the Falange symbol is five arrows joined together by a yoke.
We are witnessing a political revolution and many are asleep. Not understanding what is transpiring in America. The Church used to be a voice in America, pushing back against liberal agenda’s, but now they are either asleep or joining in the march. It’s not the America we grew up in. It’s not the America our grandparents grew up in. America is imploding. It is coming apart at the seams. And the symbolism is lost to those who refuse to see. As a popular Communist leader once said, America will destroy itself from within. And the disputed quote by Kruschev:
“Americans are so gullible. No, you won’t accept communism outright, but we’ll keep feeding you small doses of socialism until you’ll finally wake up and find you already have communism. We won’t have to fight you. We’ll so weaken your economy until you’ll fall like overripe fruit into our hands.”
Disputed or not it’s what our leaders have done. It’s like the boiling frog. We have been duped.
And as Abraham Lincoln predicted:
America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves.
