What is Fascism and Why does it Emerge?
The purpose of this essay is to explain what fascism is and why it emerges.
Fascism is a political ideology that consists of an all powering totalitarian
government, which has total control of the people, the nation and the economy.
The fascist economic system creates an upper class for the owning/ruling class
and leaves the working class in a lower state who in turn produce for the elite.
To justify themselves as beneficial to the oppressed lower class, the fascist
installs an extreme sense of Nationalisms and organicism. If these method do
not work then force is used. Fascism emerges out of economic crisis, a
revolutionary promise and reaction to capitalism. It is often allowed to
emerge because it is usually easy to get support from the upper class.
The fascist political structure consists of a totalitarian government with an
extreme sense of absolutism. Absolutism is the principle of a absolute power in
control with power that transcends even the laws itself, under the control of
one main dictator who carries traits of of a geniuses or of a hero. This way
the masses can be drawn into him through emotion and appeal. With the
totalitarian government the fascist has total control of the nation and the
Along with the fascist total ruling over the people and nation came its total
ruling over the economy. Although different fascist have had different economic
structures, all regimes more or less, have had the same model. The main defining
character of the fascist economy is the principle of goverment-buisness
relationship. Like the first fascist regime in Italy, its leader created a
system where private ownership was allowed but state intervention was issued on
management and labour. He did this by creating grouped established syndicates,
such as “The National Confederation of Commerce” or the “The National Federation
of Credit and Insurgence”. The government then controlled these under managing
agencies called “Corporations” which in turn would regulate issues and
guidelines such as supply and demand, labour disputes or what interest the
business is to aim at. Although the system is supposed to function as a
partnership, the government is always in control and dominate.
Although the fascists claim this system is in the interest of the nation, it is
only in the interest of more empowerment for the government. Due to this
system both the states interest and the interest of the owning class are
integrated which creates an elite. Therefore the development and technology
only serves the interest of the elite and not the working class which is to be
convinced to interact with promoting the sense that there dedication is
necessary for the wellbeing of the nation.
Nationalism is a force which the fascist uses to eliminate conflict between
social classes and restore unity through shared values such as race, language,
religion and unifies men through symbols and traditions of a nation. It reduces
the risk of liberal individualism and focuses on funnelling aggression into a
powerful force and channelling it against outsiders so individuals will not
question the state.
Nationalism often relies on the use of a scapegoat. The most blatant example of
this was Hitler's scapegoating on the Jews. He would blame them for the defeat
of Germany in World War 1, or claim they were the downfall of Germany. Hitler
took this idea to an extreme and later went on to ethnic cleansing which
resulted in the death of 6 million Jews.
Another method of motivating the masses is to present the concept of organicism.
Organicism is the theory of viewing a nation like a growing powerful single body.
It focuses on the idea that the body is made up of individual components all
having individual functions, but are unimportant, and only important as a whole
body. The fascist applies this principle to the notion that the individual is
unimportant as a single person but significant in the fact that it's a component
of the community and the interest of the state which is the superior element of
exisistence. The fascist feels that all means for the state are justifiable
and “there is no room for detachment from the cause, for neutrality or for the
luxury of being a mere spectator”(Growth, 97). The fascist also uses this
principle in justifying the rationality of the fascist economic system with
demoralising the image of the individual as a person producing for himself, and
not for the community as he should be.
If nationalism and organicism do not supply enough motivation to create a
dominant ideology, the fascist resorts to “tapping deeper levels of motivation”
(...,19) and uses coercive force.

The Importance of the PressThe Importance of the Press The newspaper is a powerful medium. It is powerful because it has the ability to influence the way that people view the world, as well as their opinion of what they see.

Virtu and FortunaVirtu and Fortuna Under close scrutiny, The Prince by Niccolo Machiavelli is seen to be a mind-baffling construct of many levels of meaning, and, many might say, enigmatically so. It is hard to determine where Machiavelli is writing in earnest and where in sarcasm or self-condemnation. As John Plamenatz says, the perverse Machiavelli likes to make himself out worse than he is. He likes at times to shock his contemporaries... No doubt he succeeds. The important message here, though, is that the

Pauly pointed to the decay of our language as a cause of the degeneration of our understanding of each other and our own political systems.
