The View From 1776

Fascism vs. Economic Liberty

Readers who object to characterizing liberal Republicans and Democrats as fascists simply don’t understand the meaning of the term.

  1. Each individual human being possesses a unique, highly
    developed, and sensitive perception of diversity. Thus
    aware, man is endowed with a natural capability for enact-
    ing internal mental and external physical selectivity.
    Quantitative and qualitative choice-making thus lends
    itself as the superior basis of an active intelligence.

    Human is earth's Choicemaker. His title describes
    his definitive and typifying characteristic. Recall
    that his other features are but vehicles of experi-
    ence intent on the development of perceptive
    awareness and the following acts of decision and
    choice. Note that the products of man cannot define
    him for they are the fruit of the discerning choice-
    making process and include the cognition of self,
    the utility of experience, the development of value-
    measuring systems and language, and the accultur-
    ation of civilization.

    The arts and the sciences of man, as with his habits,
    customs, and traditions, are the creative harvest of
    his perceptive and selective powers. Creativity, the
    creative process, is a choice-making process. His
    articles, constructs, and commodities, however
    marvelous to behold, deserve neither awe nor idol-
    atry, for man, not his contrivance, is earth's own
    highest expression of the creative process.

    Human is earth's Choicemaker. The sublime and
    significant act of choosing is, itself, the Archimedean
    fulcrum upon which man levers and redirects the
    forces of cause and effect to an elected level of qual-
    ity and diversity. Further, it orients him toward a
    natural environmental opportunity, freedom, and
    bestows earth's title, The Choicemaker, on his
    singular and plural brow.

    - from The HUMAN PARADIGM

    Thus, to limit individual choice and the creative process is to limit the progressive state of the society and its total economy.

    Socialists never learn. Small wonder collectivist systems are anti-human nature and thereby doomed to a natural failure.

    Sounds like an important aspect of intelligent design...

  2. No, it is not everyone else who is wrong while you are right - everyone else is right while you are wrong

    perhaps you need to look up the definition of fascism before you use the word.

    You are an idiot, stop posting your shit to totalfark.

  4. I sighed when I read this piece because it is not really an article about fascism. It uses fascism as an excuse to attack liberals, not realizing that most of the 'fascism' perpetrated in America has been conducted by conservatives.

    Fascism has a natural negative connotation. It sounds negative. It rolls of the tongue negatively. However, I understand that originally the word meant 'justice'. Therefore, it has a closer relationship with liberals than conservatives because liberals are the ones who are interested in social justice. But the writer of this article takes advantage of fascism's negative sound to further smear and bash liberals.

  6. Oh well, I guess I will try to make another point. However, it seems futile in such an atmosphere of hostility and warped incomprehension. I will ask a question about individualism.

    If the economy was based just on individualism, which this blog keeps celebrating as the holy grail, what would be the binding thing between individuals? Would it be the market place? But, then, who runs the market place? Who supplies the conduit? I can't think of anything at the moment that could do the job better than a central government.

    Don't get me wrong, I support individualism. As somebody said, for best results, cultivate the individual not the collective. That said, the individual does need to be balanced off and contained by a competing system.

    Perhaps some day we wont need a government to do our economics. But at the moment we are not sophisticated enough to do without one.

    All the bellyaching I hear here is really for one purpose, not to do away with government entirely, as such, but to pare it down to a more reasonable size so that it does not keep growing and wasting our money. I am all for that.

  7. The proper definition of a fascist is someone willing to use violence to achieve a political objective. Saddam is a fascist, since he used violence to achieve and maintain power. So too is George Washington.

    Fascism is a political term, not an economic term.

    What these fascists never understand is that the government creates the money that everyone is fighting over. When they come to power they are no better at managing currency and fear than the people they overthrew.

    There are liberal fascists, conservative fascists, theological fascists, racist fascists, etc., etc.

  8. Exactly, the world is replete with all kinds of fascism. America is a thoroughly fascist nation. Fascism everywhere. Today it has enough different fascist interests competing and counterbalancing each other that no one fascism will become the single authority.

  9. The term fascism is so vast in meaning as to be meaningless. Mr. Brewton uses it in this meaningless sense. I suggest, then, that it be dropped as a descriptive word because though it may mean something specific it means nothing in its overuse.
