Fascism’s Long-Forgotten Roots are in Leftist Ideology

Wiki, Giovanni Gentile
Dinesh D’Souza reports that Giovanni Gentile is the father of fascism and was a student of Karl Marx. Gentile was against “Liberal Democracy” that he felt was too centered on the individual and liberty, and instead promoted “True Democracy” in which individuals were subordinated to the state. Fascists are socialists with a national identity.  The bottom line is that there is no significant difference between Fascism and Communism. -GEG​

Bestselling author and filmmaker Dinesh D’Souza sat down with PragerU and corrected the record.  Dinesh exposes the socialism that underpins Fascist behavior and thought. D’Souza opens by addressing the fact that we know who the ideological founders of Capitalism and Communism are, that being Adam Smith and Karl Marx, but who is the “philosopher of Fascism”?

It must be noted that one of the left’s favorite tactic is rewriting history.

It is inherent in any Orwellian tale and it has not escaped our current one. D’Souza argues that most people will not know who this “philosopher of Fascism” is because left-leaning historians have decided to “erase him from history to avoid confronting Fascism’s actual beliefs”.

Giovanni Gentile is the ideological father of Fascism. He was born in 1875 and was the student of Karl Marx. Gentile’s ideas were similarly radical in this age of radical thought and he contended that the state should resemble a family, an ideal still held by leftists today. During then-Governor Mario Cuomo’s 1984 address at the Democrat National Convention, he said America was “an extended family where, through the government, people all take care of each other.” In 2012 the slogan for the DNC was “The government is the only thing we all belong to.”

How miserably bleak . . .

 Gentile, an ardent Socialist, considered his Fascist conceptions to be the most “workable” form of Socialism. “Fascism mobilizes people by appealing to their national identity, as well as their class,” D’Souza notes. “Fascists are Socialists with a national identity.”

Gentile argued that all private action should “be oriented to serve society”. There was to be no distinct boundary separating private interest and public interest. He saw the state as the administrative wing of society, and therefore all of society must do what is in the interest of the state, at the state’s will.

Benito Mussolini paraphrased Gentile in his Dottrina del Fascismo, “All is in the state and nothing human exists or has value outside the state.” Just as bleak as the DNC slogan in 2012.

If this were any other vaccine, it would have been pulled from the market after 50 unexplained deaths. The CDC reviewed about 1,600 deaths and indicated that not a single death was related to the vaccine! The doctor said it is impossible to opine that none of the deaths were vaccine-related without thorough investigation.
