'FASCISM is the name of a political attitude which puts the nation-state or the race, it's power & growth, at the centre of life & history.
It disregards the individual & his rights, as well as humanity, in the exclusive interest of the nation. As a political technique it follows the lead of totalitarian bolshevism as a single-party state with strict regimentation of all aspects of national life. The name Fascism was first used by the movement started by Benito Mussolini in March 1919. Later on it became the general name for similar movements in other countries, among which German National Socialism was the most prominent.'
- Encyclopaedia Britannica (1961)
'BOLSHEVIKS [meaning 'Majority'] the name assumed by adherents of the radical left wing of the Russian Social Democratic Labour Party in 1903 & maintained as part of the official title of the Communist Party the U.S.S.R. until 1952.' - Encyclopaedia Britannica (1961)
'ANARCHISM is the belief that it is practicable & desirable to abolish all organised government, laws & machinery for law enforcement. Anarchists aim at a stateless society in which harmony is maintained by voluntary agreements between individuals & groups.'
- Encyclopaedia Britannica (1961)
'SYNDICALISM is an anti-capitalist doctrine stressing the autonomy of working groups & advocating direct industrial action to overthrow the capitalist order….The syndicalist doctrine was first worked out by certain leaders of the French trade-union movement toward the end of the 19th century. The word syndicalism means simply trade-unionism….It's followers tended to be attracted either by revolutionary communists, especially as represented by the U.S.S.R., or by the increasing possibilities in western democracies for socio-economic improvement through ordinary trade-union activity as well as parliamentary action…Left-wing trade-union agitations, usually called Trotskyite by the Communists, often resulted from old syndicalist influence.' - Encyclopaedia Britannica (1961)
(Incidentally, this should identify exactly who the trade unions are & what they're about;
'Masonry a vast organism of propaganda acts by slow suggestion, spreading the revolutionary ferment in an insidious manner. The heads sow it among the inner lodges, these transmit it to the lower lodges whence it penetrates into the affiliated institutions.2
2. Such as Ligue des droits de l'homme [League of Human Rights], la ligue de l'enseignement [league of education], le Syndicat des instituteurs [Teachers' Union], l'Union des combattants républicains [Union of Republican Fighters]...'
- Leon de Poncins 'The Secret Powers Behind Revolution' 1929)
'If you find yourself in Manchester [England] in the near future, don’t miss the People’s History Museum (originally the National Museum of Labour History). The museum houses an impressive collection of labour-related objects & documents, presented throughout a series of themed exhibition spaces. It is dedicated entirely to the history of the United Kingdom’s working classes, recounting & documenting the daily lives, work, & leisure activities of British subjects over the past 200 years. But beyond this, the museum spotlights suffrage as the path toward democracy, serving additionally as an archive & study centre.'
'DEMOCRACY ...Totalitarian Democracy - During the 19th & early 20th centuries the idea of democracy was associated primarily with liberal constitutionalism. That is what Pres. Woodrow Wilson had in mind when he stated that "making the world safe for democracy" was the object of the United States participation in World War I. One of the principle consequences of that war, however, was the establishment of the communist regime in Russia. Although the U.S.S.R. did not aspire to be a Liberal state, it laid great emphasis on what it claimed was it's popular & democratic character, a claim which was held to be spurious by upholders of traditional eyes of democracy. The satellite governments it set up after World War II were officially designated "peoples democracies," & it was in this rigourously restricted form that "democracy" became familiar at mid-20th century to much of the human race.' - Encyclopaedia Britannica (1961)
'SOCIALISM & DEMOCRACY… The authentic socialist movement, as it was conceived by its founders & as it has developed over the past century, has been the most democratic movement in all history. No formulation of this question can improve on the classic statement of the Communist Manifesto, with which modern scientific socialism was proclaimed to the world in 1848. The Communist Manifesto said: All previous historical movements were movements of minorities, or in the interest of minorities. The proletarian movement is the self-conscious, independent movement of the immense majority, in the interest of the immense majority.25
The authors of the Communist Manifesto linked socialism & democracy together as end & means. The “self-conscious, independent movement of the immense majority, in the interest of the immense majority” cannot be anything else but democratic, if we understand by “democracy” the rule of the people, the majority.'
'CAPITALISM An economic systemic which wealth is owned by private individuals or businesses & goods are produced for exchange, according to the dictates of the market.'
- Andrew Heywood 'Political Ideologies' (1992)
'COMMUNISM The principle of the common ownership of wealth; communism is often used more broadly to refer to movements or regimes that are based on Marxist principles.'
- Andrew Heywood 'Political Ideologies' (1992)
Despite veiling a morass of ambiguity, the above political definitions should be relatively comprehensible to the average person, & indeed do or used to represent the original meaning of those terms fairly adequately. The definitions are given for the most part in the mid-20th Cen & were presumably what most of us interested in the subject grew up believing to be our understanding of these political belief systems & like a bunch of idiots, frequently drew our lines in the sand over. If one delves further into the political spectrum nowadays however, the lines of demarcation between political doctrines has become ever so blurred, they overlap, they seem to contradict themselves & so on. For example, here's excerpts from a marxist.org article on 'Liberalism';
'Liberalism is a word that means different things to different people, especially from country to country....Very broadly, liberalism asserts individual autonomy against the intrusion of the community...Economic liberalism therefore easily makes common cause with the traditional sources of conservative politics – the landed aristocracy & Christian fundamentalists. Neo-liberalism….favours reliance on market forces to resolve social problems, rather than methods of state regulation. “Civic liberalism” on the other hand, emphasises the importance of individual autonomy against determination by traditional norms, racial prejudice, entrenched power relations & economic disadvantage. Under the banner of “equality of opportunity”, civic liberalism can come close to forms of communitarianism in emphasising the responsibility of the community…..In the U.S., “liberal” has the specific connotation of seeking to promote the social good without challenging the right of the ruling class to rule….'.
To cut to the quick, lines of demarcation between political ideologies were blurred a long time ago, with the intent of bringing us to the chaos we see around us today, Trump, Brexit, you name it. Out of this chaos will come a new order, one of a totalitarian, secure, world society, wherein (as Aldous Huxley said), all will learn to love their servitude, one way or another. The reason for all this CHANGE is because at it's inception, the Catholic Church, or reformed (Holy) Roman Empire put quite a few noses out of joint during it's tenure as Europes hegemony, most notably the Pagans, who've regrouped time & again & who now sit firmly in the driving seat. The Pagans saw to it that the three elements of society that were to their mind, the prime movers in it's tribulations that needed to be destroyed; the Church, the Nation State & the Mob, were first infiltrated, usurped, then totally discredited. They were set about simultaneously during the Middle Ages in various fashions in an all out attack, whilst always keeping their real purpose & identity (Mystery Babylon)…..veiled.
I hope thats clear.
