Fascism: Idolatry of the State

The New Discourses Podcast with James Lindsay, Episode 134

Fascism wasn’t just a “bad thing” that happened in the first half of the twentieth century, and it’s not just a bogus word the Left throws around today about everyone and everything it doesn’t like. It was an explicit totalitarian ideology of state power that arose as a reaction to Communist provocation and libertine excesses in the 1920s and 1930s. That doesn’t go far enough in describing it, though. It is, in fact, the dialectical antithesis of Marxism and libertinistic “liberalism,” which is to say that it is an ideology that has many things in common with Marxism while positioning itself as its philosophical and political opposite. In fact, Fascism is a form of idolatry: idolatry of a state acting as God the Father of a people whose lives are given meaning by submitting fully to its advancement and glory. In this episode of the New Discourses Podcast, host James Lindsay reads through Benito Mussolini’s Doctrine of Fascism to make it very clear what Fascism is in every regard and why it’s nothing like a good answer for Americans beset by Woke Marxism today. Join him to understand this crucially important issue.
