Fascism is a form of radical authoritarian nationalism that came to prominence in early 20th-century Europe. The first known fascist movements emerged in Italy during World War I, before it spread to other European countries. Facism is opposed to liberalism, Marxism, and anarchism.
Here’s how to tell if you are a fascist:
1) You favor the effort to create, by authoritarian means, a national society in which competing interests are entirely subordinated to the service of the absolute state.
2) You see a time of national humiliation, economic depression, bewildering social changes or an imagined crisis threatening society as your opportunity to implement fascist ideals.
3) You reject democratic or humanitarian ideals while glorifying the absolute sovereignty of the state.
4) You believe your leader(s) should go unquestioned and deserve your utmost loyalty.
5) You believe in an aggressive form of nationalism of which every element of national life is regimented and mobilized.
6) You favor violence and intimidation as a means to institute an aggressive form of nationalism.
7) You favor the simulation of mass popular support effected by outlawing all but a single political party.
8) You support the suppression of all dissent.
9) You believe in the intensive use of propaganda to achieve fascist goals.
10) You favor government programs involving quick action, economic restructuring, mass industrialization and war.
11) You believe your fascist ideals are bold, adventurous and promise a glorious future.
