Neocons: the Echo of German Fascism

"The "New World Order" the Rockefellers are planning will be a world dictatorship. Conservatives will call it Socialism or Communism, Liberals will call it Fascism. The label makes little difference; it will be the Gulag Archipelago on a worldwide basis." - Gary Allen

"Klaus Theweleit in his two volumes labeled Male Fantasies, which draw on the bitter alienation of demobilized veterans in Germany following the end of World War I, argues that a militarized culture attacks all that is culturally defined as the feminine, including love, gentleness, compassion and acceptance of diversity. The continued support for our permanent war economy, the continued elevation of military values as the highest good, sustains the perverted ethic, rigid social roles and emotional numbness.

It is a moral cancer. Fascism, Theweleit argued, is not so much a form of government or a particular structuring of the economy or a system, but the creation of potent slogans and symbols that form a kind of psychic economy which places sexuality in the service of destruction. The core of all fascist propaganda is a battle against everything that constitutes enjoyment and pleasure, Theweleit wrote. And our culture, while it disdains the name of fascism, embraces its dark ethic." - Chris Hedges

The fascism that swept Europe in the 1930's taught humanity lessons on how corporate power can undermine democracy.

In Spain, Germany, and Italy industrialists and the aristocracy forged alliances with right-wing radicals and charismatic leaders to win elections in Italy and Germany by embracing a fascist ideology - the term fascist was created by Benito Mussolini.

Fascists took over government ministries running them for their own profit, pouring government money into corporate coffers by awarding lucrative contracts to prosecute wars and build infrastructure with little or no State oversight.

"Fascism is itself less 'ideological', in so far as it openly proclaims the principle of domination that is elsewhere concealed." - Theodor Adorno

The ideology of corporatism is very similar to fascism in the following ways:

"The Fascist State lays claim to rule in the economic field." - Benito Mussolini

In corporatism the State charters the corporations and fulfills corporate lobbyists "wish lists"by insuring corporate profits through State decree, deregulation, bail outs, subsidies and tax relief.

The Supreme Court decided in Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission that corporations and unions First Amendment's protection of free speech was violated if they could not donate any amount to whatever political entity they choose.

"If the First Amendment has any force, it prohibits Congress from fining or jailing citizens, or associations of citizens, for simply engaging in political speech." - Justice Kennedy's majority opinion

Since nearly all unions but government unions and those engaged in fulfilling government contracts are dead in the water Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission effectively is a coup de grâce to citizen participation in the once viable liberal democratic republic of the United States of America.

"Anti-individualistic, the Fascist conception of life stresses the importance of the State and accepts the individual only in so far as his interests coincide with those of the State." - Benito Mussolini

In corporatism incorporated organizations are designed as wealth producing entities and are not designed to be socially responsible.

State entities are designed for social control purposes with the clear intent of conditioning the behavior of the social culture to conform to corporately acceptable norms of consumption - thus keeping the industrial machine humming.

The corporate State is concerned with the individual's welfare only when the promotion of an individual's welfare coincides with needs of the State or the corporation.

"Fascism is definitely and absolutely opposed to the doctrines of liberalism, both in the political and the economic sphere." - Benito Mussolini

Benito Mussolini

"Never forget that everything Adolf Hitler did in
Germany was legal." - Martin Luther King Jr.

"Above all, Fascism, the more it considers and observes the future and the development of humanity quite apart from political considerations of the moment, believes neither in the possibility nor the utility of perpetual peace. War alone brings up to its highest tension all human energy and puts the stamp of nobility upon the people who have the courage to meet it." - Benito Mussolini

Fascism is opposed to liberalism because liberalism emphasizes individual rights and equality of opportunity.

Liberalistic ideology includes extensive freedom of thought and speech with the right to question the authority of the State, limitations on the power of the State through the granting of basic human rights, the rule of law applied equally to all segments of society, the free exchange of ideas, concepts and knowledge which are judged on their merits alone - not on status of the celebrities which support them, a true free market economy - as opposed to a State granted monopolistic economy - and a transparent system of government.

In American corporatism corporate and State entities have the right to free speech (for corporations - hiring lobbyists, lying in marketing campaigns and easy access to mass media; for government - lying to elicit confessions, covering up wrongdoing and modifing public opinion) individual voices are only heard if they conform to the corporate media propaganda, freedom of thought is discouraged (accept corporate and government deregulation or become a social outcast), corporate power has increased exponentially while individual rights guaranteed by the Constitution are trampled, the rule of law applies only to living breathing individuals - who are punished with incarceration, ideas are no longer freely exchanged and Richard Bruce Cheney never wrote e-mails, memos or directives so no one will ever know why George Walker Bush took the actions he did.

The elected fascist governments of Spain, Germany, and Italy used the provocation of terrorist attacks, continual wars, and invocations of patriotism and homeland security to privatize the commons, tame the press, muzzle criticism by opponents, and turn government over to corporate control. The easiest thing for a political leaders to do is appeal to our fear, our hatred, our greed, our prejudices.

"It is always a simple matter to drag the people along, whether it is a democracy, a fascist dictatorship, a parliament or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders. All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the peacemakers for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger. It works the same in any country." - Hermann Goering

Communism is, by definition, total government. Socialism is defined as government ownership and/or control over the basic means of production and distribution of goods and services or total government. If you have total government it makes little difference whether you call it communism, socialism, corporatism or fascism.

Corporatism is defined as corporate ownership and/or control over the basic means of production and distribution of goods and services, also total government run by corporations. When analyzed this means corporate control over everything, including you.

(Just in case, corporatists have a privately owned and operated jail cell waiting for you!)

"Our chief foe is a swarm of greed-driven, self-absorbed, mean-spirited locust-like human beings who are dedicated to "reforming" and perpetuating corporatism, the very system that has led us to this woeful state of environmental, economic, social, and political affairs.

Corporatism, the systemization of greed, selfishness, subjugation, and exploitation camouflaged by the narcotic of consumerism, the irresistible illusion of equal opportunity for all, and its ostensible compatibility with liberal democracy, has seduced hundreds of millions of people into ignoring its contradictions, injustices, and malevolence.

Corporatism has inflicted deep wounds upon the Earth and is the persistent infection that must be eradicated to avert the sixth mass extinction, the ongoing torture and murder of billions of non-human animals, an acceleration of climate change, further economic collapse, mass starvation, severe shortages of potable water, perpetual resource wars, and a host of other catastrophic events." - Jason Miller

The idea that corporatism is a share-the-wealth program is strictly a con-fidence game to get the populace to surrender their freedom to an all-powerful collectivist corporate monopoly. Sycophants are told they are building a paradise on Earth when actually they are constructing a jail for themselves. Americans have been indoctrinated to believe that corporatism is a share-the-wealth program.

If one understands that corporatism is not a share-the-wealth program, but is in reality a method to consolidate and control wealth, then the seeming paradox of super-rich men promoting corporatism, communism, socialism or fascism becomes no paradox at all. Instead corporatism, communism, socialism or fascism become the logical rational tools of power-seeking soulless apostate megalomaniacs.

In The Shame of the Cities, a study of the American political system in 1904, Lincoln Steffens concluded that the corruption and failures of American democracy stemmed largely from a single source - the control of government by businessmen acting in their own self-interest. Lincoln Steffens characterized that formula as a category of treason because "the effect of it is literally to change the form of government from one that is representative of the people to an oligarchy representative of the special interests."

To invoke Christianity to justify the rape of the land violates manifold Christian precepts that require us to be careful stewards of God's creation.

Rather than elevating the human spirit "Wise Use" neocons embrace intolerance, selfishness, pride, arrogance toward creation, and irresponsibility to the community and future generations.

worlds worst enemy

"It came as a severe shock to learn that several of the greatest American corporate leaders were in league with Nazi corporations before and after Pearl Harbor, including I.G. Farben, the colossal Nazi industrial trust that created Auschwitz.

Each of these business leaders was entangled with the others through interlocking directorates or financial sources.

All were represented internationally by the National City Bank or by the Chase National Bank and by the Nazi attorneys Gerhardt Westrick and Dr. Heinrich Albert. All had connections to that crucial Nazi economist, Emil Puhl, of Hitler's Reichsbank and the Bank for International Settlements. The tycoons sought a common future in fascist domination, regardless of which world leader might further that ambition.

Several members not only sought a continuing alliance of interests for the duration of World War II but supported the idea of a negotiated peace with Germany that would bar any reorganization of Europe along liberal lines.

It would leave as its residue a police state that would place the tycoons in postwar possession of financial, industrial, and political autonomy.

When it was clear that Germany was losing the war the businessmen became notably more "loyal."

Then, when war was over, the survivors pushed into Germany, protected their assets, restored Nazi friends to high office, helped provoke the Cold War.

What would have happened if millions of American and British people, struggling with coupons and lines at the gas stations, had learned that in 1942 Standard Oil of New Jersey managers shipped the enemy's fuel through neutral Switzerland and that the enemy was shipping Allied fuel?

Suppose the public had discovered that the Chase Bank in Nazi-occupied Paris after Pearl Harbor was doing millions of dollars' worth of business with the enemy with the full knowledge of the head office in Manhattan?

Or that Ford trucks were being built for the German occupation troops in France with authorization from Dearborn, Michigan?

Or that Colonel Sosthenes Behn, the head of the international telephone conglomerate ITT, flew from New York to Madrid to Berne during the war to help improve Hitler's communications systems and improve the automaton bombs that devastated London?

Or that ITT built the Focke-Wulfs that dropped bombs on British and American troops?

Or that crucial ball bearings were shipped to Nazi-associated customers in Latin America with the collusion of the vice-chairman of the US War Production Board in partnership with Göring's cousin in Philadelphia when American forces were desperately short of them?

Or that such arrangements were known about in Washington and either sanctioned or deliberately ignored?

For the government did sanction dubious transactions both before and after Pearl Harbor.

A presidential edict, issued six days after December 7, 1941, actually set up the legislation whereby licensing arrangements for trading with the enemy could officially be granted.

Often during the years after Pearl Harbor the government permitted such trading.

ITT was allowed to continue its relations with the Axis and Japan until 1945, even though that conglomerate was regarded as an official instrument of US Intelligence.

No attempt was made to prevent Ford from retaining its interests for the Germans in Occupied France, nor were the Chase Bank or the Morgan Bank expressly forbidden to keep open their branches in Occupied Paris." - Charles Higham

Fourteen Defining Characteristics Of Fascism

She survived Hitler and wants to warn America

Fascism has been defined as a system of government that exercises a dictatorship of the extreme right, typically through the merging of state and business leadership together with belligerent patriotic nationalism.

"It's my feeling that the real danger lies not so much in the epithets being flung but in a real and growing fascism gnawing at the core of the American national psyche. In all the bluster and rhetoric, our attention is being misdirected from a host of very troubling issues." - Tadek Korn

"I don't care if Democratic presidential candidate John Edwards is using fascist author Ann Coulter to raise money. John Edwards is a politician and that's what politicians do. Ann Coulter is using John Edwards to gain publicity so she can sell her books and continue her shelf life by making outrageous statements." - Barry Simon

"Max Boot* and other neocon apologists are fond of using the term 'Islamo-fascism'. Now Max Boot and cohorts should begin using Christo-fascism and Judeo-fascism with the same frequency and validity." - Gene Touchet

"If Max Boot* could get past being a fervent apologist for the neocons, he might see clearly the reasons that many Muslims in the Middle East, consider our policies in the region to be akin to terrorism." - Michele Greene

"If we send more troops, as Max Boot* suggests, there will be more fighting and the number of our soldiers killed will go up. More than 55,000 Americans were killed in action in Vietnam, and then we left. The only reason that we are still in Iraq is to distract the voters from the corrupt politicians and their cronies looting the treasury." - Steve Harrington

"As I read Max Boot's alternate-universe view of reality, I glanced up several times to see if a white rabbit was running by holding a watch screaming that he was late." - Gary Garshfield

"Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld's comparison of our enemies in the Middle East to fascist countries of theory is an interesting stretch. Real fascist governments have the following characteristics: domination of all branches of government and the economy by a political party; control of news sources via economic relationships and threats of retribution; reliance on a large military to promote national unity and expand global influence; blind obedience to the national leader, and dismissal of any international laws unless they are temporarily expedient." - Michael Roddy

"Since the end of the theory, the federal government has spent more than half its tax dollars on past, current and future military operations. It is the largest single sustaining activity of the government. The military-industrial establishment is a very lucrative business. It is gilded corporate welfare. Massive profits are always guaranteed." - Chris Hedges

Fascism and corporatism are one and the same thing - both are dependent on never ending preparation for war and execution of war.

This web site is not a commercial web site and is presented for educational purposes only.

This website defines a new perspective with which to engage reality to which its author adheres. The author feels that the falsification of reality outside personal experience has created a populace unable to discern propaganda from reality and that this has been done purposefully by an international corporate cartel through their agents who wish to foist a corrupt version of reality on the human race. Religious intolerance occurs when any group refuses to tolerate religious practices, religious beliefs or persons due to their religious ideology. This web site marks the founding of a system of philosophy named The Truth of the Way of Life - a rational religion based on reason which requires no leap of faith, accepts no tithes, has no supreme leader, no church buildings and in which each and every individual is encouraged to develop a personal relation with the Creator and Sustainer through the pursuit of the knowledge of reality in the hope of curing the spiritual corruption that has enveloped the human spirit. The tenets of The Truth of the Way of Life are spelled out in detail on this web site by the author. Violent acts against individuals due to their religious beliefs in America is considered a "hate crime."

This web site in no way condones violence. To the contrary the intent here is to reduce the violence that is already occurring due to the international corporate cartels desire to control the human race. The international corporate cartel already controls the world economic system, corporate media worldwide, the global industrial military entertainment complex and is responsible for the collapse of morals, the elevation of self-centered behavior and the destruction of global ecosystems. Civilization is based on cooperation. Cooperation does not occur at the point of a gun.

American social mores and values have declined precipitously over the last century as the corrupt international cartel has garnered more and more power. This power rests in the ability to deceive the populace in general through corporate media by pressing emotional buttons which have been preprogrammed into the population through prior mass media psychological operations. The results have been the destruction of the family and the destruction of social structures that do not adhere to the corrupt international elites vision of a perfect world. Through distraction and coercion the direction of thought of the bulk of the population has been directed toward solutions proposed by the corrupt international elite that further consolidates their power and which further their purposes.
