  • I’d also assume you’d need to leverage empathy to read the reaction of your audience and adjust your performance accordingly. It’s a very different craft than a musical performance, where narcissism is advantageous. It would probably be very challenging to be a narcissistic clown.

    Source: years of playing with narcissistic front men. They’re the best at working the crowd, and the worst people to have in your life.

    Where did I write “fascism is bad?” It is a vague ideology that is centrally defined as I stated above.

    For example, Oxford defines fascism as an extreme right-wing political system or attitude that is in favour of strong central government, aggressively promoting your own country or race above others, and that does not allow any opposition.

    There is no specific economic system required for a government to be considered fascist. Historically, fascism has grown out of more socialist nations than capitalist. That doesn’t make fascism inherently socialist either.

    Joseph Stalin stated in a speech in 1924: Fascism is not only a military-technical category. Fascism is the bourgeoisie’s fighting organisation that relies on the active support of Social-Democracy. Social-Democracy is objectively the moderate wing of fascism.

    While they are common traits, they are not requirements to be considered part of fascist ideology. While used by more famous fascist governments, they are not necessary to impart the general ideology of fascism through authoritarian control by a dictator.

    For example the Spanish Falange was considered a fascist movement. It supported conservative ideas about women and supported rigid gender roles that stipulated that women’s main duties in life were to be loving mothers and submissive wives. There was no economic system defining the fascist movement.

    There’s nothing specific about fascism. The term was coined during Mussolini’s reign, and has taken many forms since. Kershaw famously wrote that “trying to define ‘fascism’ is like trying to nail jelly to the wall.”

    The only consistent components of fascism are an autocratic government and a dictatorial ruler, severe economic and social regimentation, and forcible suppression of opposition.

    One is a form of economy, the other is an ideology of societal oppression. Fascist governments have run capitalist, communist, and socialist economies. Historically, more fascist governments have developed from socialist nations than capitalist. That doesn’t make fascism inherently socialist either.

    The meme would be more accurate in stating that fascism is a failure of democracy than capitalism.
