Transcript of Fascism
What is Fascism?
Fascism is a governmental system controlled by a dictator. Fascism promotes discipline and blind obedience to the leader, and it is the opposite of democracy or liberalism.
Basic Fascist Themes
The themes of fascism include:
-Absolute power of the state
-Male dominance and the power of youth
-Promotion of strength and aggression
Overall, these four themes help form the basic structure of the fascism. After WWII, fascism fell apart and has not yet reemerged as a major form of government.
Promotion of Strength and Aggression
Being weak in a fascist government is scorned upon and mocked. Violence and warfare is promoted in order to support the strenth of the country.
Origin of Fascism
In the 1930's, Benito Mussolini started the fascist party in Italy after he returned from fighting in WWI.
Adolf Hitler greatly admired Mussolini and based his Nazi revolution off of Mussolini's fascist revolution.
"All within the state, nothing outside the state, nothing against the state." (Benito Mussolini)
Absolute Power of The State
Citizens must contirbute their loyalty and their life to protecting the state. All orders from the government must be obeyed without question.
Nationalism is excessive patriotism and devotion to one's own country.
Male Dominance and the power of Youths
Fascist governments rely on the strength of men and youths.
Comes from the Latin word "Fascis" meaning "bundle"
