Russia’s move toward fascism Part 1

Posted on


In the following weeks, I plan on publishing a series of articles analyzing Russia’s transformation into a fascist state, perhaps the only such state in the world. These articles will look at not only current events, but will analyze history, the Russian and Soviet mind, and Vladimir Putin. Russia’s military capabilities as well as the role of the KGB, FSB and GRU (military intelligence) in the current state of world affairs will also be prominent issues.

First, in order to show Russia’s descent to fascism, we must first consider what this term really means or implies. As Orwell noted “fascism” may be one of the most overused and abused words in the English language.  Below is a list of traits typical to fascist regimes, as noted by Dr. Lawrence Britt:

1. Powerful and Continuing Nationalism – Fascist regimes tend to make constant use of patriotic mottos, slogans, symbols, songs, and other paraphernalia. Flags are seen everywhere, as are flag symbols on clothing and in public displays.2. Disdain for the Recognition of Human Rights – Because of fear of enemies and the need for security, the people in fascist regimes are persuaded that human rights can be ignored in certain cases because of “need.” The people tend to look the other way or even approve of torture, summary executions, assassinations, long incarcerations of prisoners, etc.3. Identification of Enemies/Scapegoats as a Unifying Cause – The people are rallied into a unifying patriotic frenzy over the need to eliminate a perceived common threat or foe: racial , ethnic or religious minorities; liberals; communists; socialists, terrorists, etc. 4. Supremacy of the Military – Even when there are widespread domestic problems, the military is given a disproportionate amount of government funding, and the domestic agenda is neglected. Soldiers and military service are glamorized.5. Rampant Sexism – The governments of fascist nations tend to be almost exclusively male-dominated. Under fascist regimes, traditional gender roles are made more rigid. Divorce, abortion and homosexuality are suppressed and the state is represented as the ultimate guardian of the family institution.6. Controlled Mass Media – Sometimes to media is directly controlled by the government, but in other cases, the media is indirectly controlled by government regulation, or sympathetic media spokespeople and executives. Censorship, especially in war time, is very common.7. Obsession with National Security – Fear is used as a motivational tool by the government over the masses.8. Religion and Government are Intertwined – Governments in fascist nations tend to use the most common religion in the nation as a tool to manipulate public opinion. Religious rhetoric and terminology is common from government leaders, even when the major tenets of the religion are diametrically opposedto the government’s policies or actions.9. Corporate Power is Protected – The industrial and business aristocracy of a fascist nation often are the ones who put the government leaders into power, creating a mutually beneficial business/government relationship and power elite.10. Labor Power is Suppressed – Because the organizing power of labor is the only real threat to a fascist government, labor unions are either eliminated entirely, or are severely suppressed.11. Disdain for Intellectuals and the Arts – Fascist nations tend to promote and tolerate open hostility to higher education, and academia. It is not uncommon for professors and other academics to be censored or even arrested. Free expression in the arts and letters is openly attacked.12. Obsession with Crime and Punishment – Under fascist regimes, the police are given almost limitless power to enforce laws. The people are often willing to overlook police abuses and even forego civil liberties in the name of patriotism. There is often a national police force with virtually unlimited power in fascist nations.13. Rampant Cronyism and Corruption – Fascist regimes almost always are governed by groups of friends and associates who appoint each other to government positions and use governmental power and authority to protect their friends from accountability. It is not uncommon in fascist regimes for national resources and even treasures to be appropriated or even outright stolen by government leaders.14. Fraudulent Elections – Sometimes elections in fascist nations are a complete sham. Other times elections are manipulated by smear campaigns against or even assassination of opposition candidates, use of legislation to control voting numbers or political district boundaries, and manipulation of the media. Fascist nations also typically use their judiciaries to manipulate or control elections.

An analysis of each of the above points would be sufficient to show that Russia is moving toward, or may even now be, a fascist state. However, there are other points to consider in why this is important, and to show people that much of this was possibly planned years, if not decades ago by Soviet leadership. It is also important because it is possible that certain politicians in Russia may still dream that Russia will dominate Europe, or at least the parts of Europe that were once members of the Soviet Bloc. Some of the analysis concerning possible Soviet plans, the KGB, and Russian intelligence will be conspiratorial in nature. As many know, I’m not much for conspiracies. But, there is there is a plethora of data to prove these points, including released KGB documents, information from defected Soviet intelligence officers, the testimony from exerts in the CIA as well as current world events.

This series is rather broad in scope and will likely require several months to complete.

    The ZOGGY JUZE must have done it. I learned that recently. Anything bad, it’s the JUZE. Mix in a few sneers, a few teenage girl abbreviations and viola, you’re Apollonian

    Who Is Foremost Mass-Murderers?–It Ain’t Russia–Try Jew-Controlled USA

    Magus: the primary fascist nations are un-questionably USA and Israel–Russia is mere side-show and, as always, all u’re doing is pushing the usual, typical neo-con propaganda at behest of an enemy, foreign, alien nation, Israel.

    Don’t forget NATO, “coalition of willing,” and esp. USA have already murdered millions now, just in Iraq, thousands more in Pakistan and Afgan, Libya, and Syria–did u hear about the drone strikes yest. in Yemen which murdered several non-combatants and civilians? Russia isn’t essentially any better (as in Chechnya), but their activities are far, far less on scale of things.

    Ever hrd of “patriot act,” NDAA, etc., etc., etc., the president now evermore LITERALLY ruling by decree and “executive order”? Do u understand what Obongo-care is?–w. death-panels–they’re just going to prescribe pills for everyone now, these pills pushed by Jew-owned big Pharma, eh?–ho ho ho.

    And what’s the big, overall plan?–it’s world gov. in accord w. AGENDA-21 genocide, isn’t it? So we know Russia, as well as China too, is generally in accord w. this larger world gov. plan, but in meantime merely jockeying to maintain its influence.

    And how then is the “big-plan” manipulated if not by the Jew-controlled banks, like US Fed, IMF, World Bank, and BIS? What could be more “fascist” than AGENDA-21 genocide?

    I had a Russian colleague, a Ph.D. in theoretical physics who now works for a bank in Canada, who surprised me several years ago by saying that he fully supported Putin. Moreover, he said that all the Russians he knew supported Putin.

    Keep in mind this was a guy who left the U.S. because he feared his son would be killed in a school shooting.

    People are very strange creatures, indeed.

    Is there a way to ban this guy from commenting? Jeez. I look forward to the honest, in-depth discussions that are posted on here but I have to read the incogruous beliefs of a misguided supremacist.

    Anyhow, I’m looking forward to reading more on your thoughts on this subject magus. I”m a bit uneducated on this subject and am looking to be enlightened. Today, many individuals would look at that list and conclude America has many fascist ideals ingrained in its current society. I couldn’t readily disagree with many of the sentiments felt today even though they are not typically not always wholly founded on much basis of logic or understanding of what is happening in the world today. Most people just don’t know.

    This one is interesting.

    “4. Supremacy of the Military – Even when there are widespread domestic problems, the military is given a disproportionate amount of government funding, and the domestic agenda is neglected. Soldiers and military service are glamorized”

    Our need to put our fingers in everything. The fact we spend nearly 3.5x that of the nearest developed country on defense. The propaganda fed to many who have yet to join, which in some ways does glamorize military service.

    Makes me wonder.

    Hey Jay, assuming u’re talking about me (ho ho ho): I can assure u my statements are honest and in-depth discussions–u’re just a cowardly liar, and u’re the one who ought to be banned, eh?

    “Incongruous” and “misguided”?–then why not demonstrate the intelligence to PROVE ur allegations w. facts and reasoning?–otherwise, u ought to be banned, eh? Jeez, ho ho ho.

    I will briefly respond to you apollonian and then I will leave it at that and not engage any further with you.

    Incongruous simply because, regardless of the topic presented, you will find a way to introduce your foundational ideology regarding the Jews taking over the world. I’m sure you could even find a way to introduce it in one of Magus’ infrequent fitness posts. Possibly you’d say that Jews created fitness to keep American’s preoccupied while the Jew secretly steals people’s wallets from their gym bags out of the locker room. And you’d find some bullshit link you pulled out of space to back up your flawed argument with. ho ho ho ho.

    Misguided…..My assumption is, you believe everything you read that agrees with your distorted views. The bullshit just keeps piling on the bullshit. I’m not sure, Possibly you lost your job to someone from a minority race? Your geographical location(Midwesterner perhaps) has bred your fallacious thinking? Or perhaps, just family history of enmity. Regardless of the reasoning, its easier for you to blame every single negative affair that you hear about on the news or experience first hand on the premise that the world would be better off if it implemented your “dogma” that Jewish people should not exist because they are controlling everything….. ho ho ho ho

    I just think it Is a big joke. Its difficult to take you seriously when you have such a narrow view on every modern topic. Gas prices are rising. ZOG! The dollar’s worth is dropping. ZOG! The local tiger just escaped from the zoo. ZOG!

    I’m sorry, but until you, instead of expecting everyone else to, open your eyes and expand your horizons a bit, I just can’t spare to waste my time actually trying to validate your opinion….on anything. ho ho ho ho.

    Wow….typing “ho ho ho ho” isn’t nearly as laughable as having to read it on every one of your comments.

    “Jay” Begs Numerous Questions (Asserts Upon No Demonstrable Factual Basis)

    Well Jay, of course u’re gonna hit and run, like a cowardly little girl, and “not engage” any further–u couldn’t really “engage” in the first place. U thus demonstrate ur “moral” (ho ho ho) “superiority,” eh?–Jewwy sympathizers like u are always morally superior, right?–because, obviously, it’s morally superior thing to defend Jews, isn’t it?–Jews have taught u well, haven’t they?

    Isn’t “finding a way” a necessary part of argument and exposition, u ignorant little moron?–the only question then is whether my reasoning is logical and factually accurate–which it is, and that’s what u don’t like, isn’t it, u cowardly little punk? For if there was something illogical or inaccurate, u’d be able to specify it, wouldn’t u?

    Making a general conclusion, as u do, without any specific premise which substantiates constitutes fallacy of question-begging, dummy.

    So why isn’t hist. a legitimate thing to invoke and cite?–Jews being behind and responsible for numerous genocides, including those of Boers, Russians, Ukrainians, Armenians, Germans, Chinese, Cambodians, et al.?–ALL the genocides of the modern era? Are Jews the masters, originators, and effectuators of communist genocide, yes or no?

    Even more to the pt., note I cite explicit Judaic religious tenets to effect of hatred and extermination of gentiles–which then ignorant little scum like u wants to ignore–why is that my problem? There’s “bullshit link”?–u lying little bastard–give a single example of any such link.

    The joke is u, punk, a brainless little liar, as I’ve here conclusively demonstrated–no wonder u pre-emptively announce it isn’t worthy of any response by u, eh? Ho ho ho ho

    “Local tiger”–ho ho ho–that’s funny, u stupid, little idiot–but u didn’t realize u were so dumb, did u? Ho ho ho ho ho

    Just like a Jew, we notice u (a) ignore the specific reasoning and ref.s I give, then (b) to transfer attn. to ur own idiot little “theories,” like “geographical location” as responsible for “fallacious thinking” which u don’t demonstrate–did u notice that, u scummy, little punk?–give a specific example of “fallacious thinking,” idiot. Oh, u can’t–that’s why u pre-emptively insist u’ve already won ur argument, eh?–clever little bastard u are, eh? Ho ho ho ho

    Jay: get a clue–I couldn’t care less about an ignorant, Jew-friendly, little punk bastard like u, get it? But go ahead and be “sorry”–u’re naturally “sorry” in more ways than one, I assure u. Jeez, ho ho hoho ho.

    Actually Joel I made no comment as to the efficacy or morality of fascism. Yet.

    TJ,

    It is difficult to understate how much people like strength, even in despicable people. People who don’t hedge, equivocate, or budge, that’s part of the charisma.

    Jay,

    You said: “Anyhow, I’m looking forward to reading more on your thoughts on this subject magus. I”m a bit uneducated on this subject and am looking to be enlightened. Today, many individuals would look at that list and conclude America has many fascist ideals ingrained in its current society.”

    I will have a post on this subject in this series; I already considered it. For now, suffice to say, the individual aspects in this list do not make a fascist state. Also, to equate fascism with evil is probably a fallacy. For instance, throwing minorities in ovens is not a necessary aspect of fascism.

    I’ve been called a fascist myself, for some of my beliefs. I don’t think I am, I just don’t think democracy need incorporate those who want to destroy democracy. Neither did Teddy Roosevelt or Ronald Reagan.
