What I’m Reading: The Anatomy of Fascism – 22 in a series – “The new Italian nationalism was less biological and more political…”

October 15th, 2019

“The new Italian nationalism was less biological and more political in its determination to “do over” the Risorgimento that had been corrupted by liberals and weakened by socialists.

Fascists need a demonized enemy against which to mobilize followers, but of course the enemy does not have to be Jewish. Each culture specifies the national enemy. Even though in Germany the foreign, the unclean, the contagious, and the subversive often mingled in a single diabolized image of the Jew, Gypsies and Slavs were also targeted.”

From The Anatomy of Fascism by Robert O. Paxton
