What I’m Reading: The Anatomy of Fascism – 14 in a series – “… at the root of much else that was violent and angry in the postwar world…”

October 3rd, 2019

“A political space for mass-based nationalist activism, mobilized against both socialism and liberalism, had been only dimly visible in 1914. It became a yawning gap during World War I. That conflict did not so much create fascism as open up wide cultural, social, and political opportunities for it.

The Great War was also, it must be added, at the root of much else that was violent and angry in the postwar world, from Bolshevism to expressionist painting. Indeed, for some authors, the Great War by itself suffices to explain both Fascism and Bolshevism.“

From The Anatomy of Fascism by Robert O. Paxton
