Eurofascism

I posted on this once, a long time ago, but I think it was in Apple Talk and so has since been deleted.  Also, when I posted it, the book itself was not online

From the author

Quote
Welcome to the free online version of the book “Eurofascism”. This expanded, updated and corrected version was made in the hope that the book can help researchers, journalists, bloggers and others in their own efforts and research into modern European fascism, nativism and right-wing extremism.

Unlike the printed version, an online version also gives the possibility to provide links, to provide more pictures and photographs and to correct grammatical and phonetic mistakes.

The online version is made available for free. The book is however available as a PDF-file and in printed version, and can be bought from Lulu, or in internet stores such as Amazon (uk, us, ca, fr). If you like the book, please consider buying a printed copy.

Quote
A Eurofascist calls himself a "nationalist", or a "national democrat", sometimes simply a "patriot". Eurofascism wraps itself in the flag, and believes in the primacy of the group represented by that flag, whether French, British, Flemish or Swedish. It also sees its own group as a victim of internal and external enemies alike. It dreads the group’s decline under the corrosive effect of alien influences.

Eurofascism, like classical fascism, brands its opponents as traitors or cowards, and it usually scorns intellectuals, academics, media workers and artists. Eurofascism is hostile to leftist and labour movements, and is often longing for a mythic "better time" of the past. Eurofascism, like traditional European fascism, is obsessed with the idea of Europe being threathened and facing a crisis, "so monumental in its reach and its consequences that we have to go back to the Migration Period to find anything similar".

Unlike some of the traditional fascists which still remain active on the fringes of society, Eurofascists have learnt that if you dress yourself in a suit and a tie – and in the robes of conservatism rather than in boots and swastikas – you are much more likely to gain broad acceptance within stable democratic countries. This strategy is sometimes stated quite openly.

Have bookmarked this for future reference.
If someone does the “Fine, you’re right, I’m clearly a terrible person, I’m Satan, I’m the worst person alive, I should just die” thing in response to criticism of their harmful behavior, they are trying to manipulate people and flip the situation around so that they look like a victim.

As a neuroscientist I have to disagree with the perception that anyone is doing mathematical modeling of cognitive intelligence, yet; intelligence as an economist defines it, yes, but economists are worlds away from actual cognition.


Although it is outside the purview of this organization to offer personal advice, we can say -- without assuming any liability -- that previous experience indicates (and recent market studies corroborate) that given the present condition of the marketplace, continuing with your present course of action is likely to result in substantial in

Thank you. :) Looks pretty interesting.
