What I’m Reading: The Anatomy of Fascism – 19 in a series – “Fascists saw enemies within the nation as well as outside.”

October 10th, 2019

“Another late-nineteenth-century anxiety was decadence: the dread that great historic nations were doomed by their own comfort and complacency to declining birth rates39 and diminished vitality.

Enemies were central to the anxieties that helped inflame the fascist imagination. Fascists saw enemies within the nation as well as outside. Foreign states were familiar enemies, though their danger seemed to intensify with the advance of Bolshevism and with the exacerbated border conflicts and unfulfilled national claims that followed World War I.”

From The Anatomy of Fascism by Robert O. Paxton
