What I’m Reading: The Anatomy of Fascism – 30 in a series – “To conclude that Nazism or other forms of fascism are forms of mental disturbance is doubly dangerous…”

October 25th, 2019

“To conclude that Nazism or other forms of fascism are forms of mental disturbance is doubly dangerous: it offers an alibi to the multitude of “normal” fascists, and it ill prepares us to recognize the utter normality of authentic fascism. Most fascist leaders and militants were quite ordinary people thrust into positions of extraordinary power and responsibility by processes that are perfectly comprehensible in rational terms.”

From The Anatomy of Fascism by Robert O. Paxton
