Radical Agenda EP144 – The Fascists Are Coming

My new philosophy is a bit more nuanced than it used to be. Perhaps that’s not the right word, my philosophy remains the same at least so far as how the world ought to function. What’s changed is how I imagine getting there, and what I find acceptable along that path. These days I pretty much think anything that brings negative emotions to leftists is probably a good thing. The more negative the emotion, the better of course, and if it makes them fear for their safety we’re pretty much at God Tier.

Radical Agenda EP144 – The Fascists Are Coming

For example, I think back to telling race baiting liberals that race was a non-issue, and how they responded by calling me racist without breaking a sweat. That was okay and all, but to really put them into crisis mode you have to discuss racial demographics in crime statistics and say things that might more broadly be deemed as racist. This does nothing to cure them of their delusions, of course. It does however expose them as anti-intellectual and emotionally underdeveloped children unfit for political commentary.

That’s the really important part today, in my book. There are a limitless number of policy ideas to discuss, a limitless number of philosophical approaches, and a limitless number of strategies. Sadly, in the presence of leftists nothing can get accomplished. They muddy the information pool in such a manner as to make progress impossible, right down to their redefining of the word progress. They are a social disease in need of a cure, and we simply can’t accomplish anything else until that cure is applied.

Now, fascism has gotten a bad name over the years, and understandably so. A lot of people got killed by fascist regimes or regimes that had fascist like ideas. But then again, the term fascist has gotten pretty muddy over the years too. Fascism today is pretty much anything that makes leftists upset, and by that measure I think fascism is awesome.

Moreover, fascism has historically come about as what some might describe as a natural defense against communism. People over time see what majority rule and endless waves of bureaucracy bring. As we’re all to aware, it’s nothing good and if the only alternative presented is a strongman to crush the communist filth of the society then that gets to sounding quite appealing. Even Ludwig von Mises wrote “It cannot be denied that Fascism and similar movements aimed at the establishment of dictatorships are full of the best intentions and that their intervention has for the moment saved European civilization. The merit that Fascism has thereby won for itself will live on eternally in history.”

Mises of course went on to point out that it could not last as a permanent form of government, but the point remains. Democracy is a synonym for communism, and once people figure that out somebody needs fight the communists. Fighting communism is necessarily anti-democratic, and doomed to be labeled fascistic no matter the form it takes. Just like anything not preaching radical egalitarianism is considered racist, sexist, and homophobic, anything not inherently communist eventually gets labeled fascism.

So I’m wholly enthusiastic about fascism coming to America, and according to Robert Kagan of the Brookings Institute, “This is How Fascism Comes to America

In other news, Politico finally released their piece about Trump supporters getting sober. Unsurprisingly, context was lacking. Good thing I recorded the entire call.

There’s a lot more to get to, including your calls at 747-234-2254 or Radical Agenda, on the Skypes there if you would like to be on the program. And the more you talk the less I have to so please do give us a call.

So join us, this and every Friday as well as Mondays and Wednesdays from 5-7pm Eastern for another exciting episode of the Radical Agenda. It’s a show about common sense extremism where we talk about radical, crazy, off the wall things like fascism.
