Fascism: An Overview
Fascism is a form of government which is a type of one-party dictatorship. Fascists are against democracy. They work for a totalitarian one-party state. This aim is to prepare the nation for armed conflict, and to respond to economic difficulties. ... It stands for a centralized government headed by a dictator. Here Bangladesh ASF culls some of the defining characteristics of fascism from classic texts of the Third International: Dimitrov’s report to the 7th world congress of the COMINTERN (1) and Dutt’s “Fascism and Social Revolution.”(2) Applying these principles today, we can say that even though the imperialists have not implemented fascist measures against the exploiter majority in First World countries, the imperialists are the principal prop of fascism in the oppressed nations. This is why WE wage a concerted fight against nationalist social-democracy and fascism. Both are strains of militant parasitism; both support the status quo of oppression in the Third World.
Hence, any differentiation between bourgeois democracy and fascism is a strategic or tactical matter–not a matter of Anarchism or Marxist principles.
