What I’m Reading: The Anatomy of Fascism – 10 in a series – “Making such choices meant accepting an apparent lesser evil or averting the eyes…”

September 27th, 2019

“To understand fully how fascist regimes worked, we must dig down to the level of ordinary people and examine the banal choices they made in their daily routines. Making such choices meant accepting an apparent lesser evil or averting the eyes from some excesses that seemed not too damaging in the short term, even acceptable piecemeal, but which cumulatively added up to monstrous end results.“

From The Anatomy of Fascism by Robert O. Paxton
