FASCISM IN OUR TIMES
As it is simple to understand the difference between the fascism and military dictatorship; unlike dictatorship where state controls people through force, in fascism people come up in large numbers to support the regime. Of course obviously people’s mindset would be shaped through the propaganda, fake news factories are simply epitomizing the fascist propaganda.
Fascists emerge in bourgeoisie democracy, whenever the economy is approaching a crisis, fascist comes out to curtail working class consciousness, which will be obviously escalated during crisis.
The futurist manifesto, clearly states about how fascism should function. It mainly emphasis on past glory. Creates contradiction between the working classes ie., Jews and Germans (Nazi Germany), Jews and Arabs(Israel), Buddhist and Hindus(Sri Lanka), Buddhist and Muslims (Sri Lanka), Hindus (obviously it is savarna dominated society were Dalits and Bahujans were extremely exploited than the minorities) and Muslims (India). It sharply dilutes the working class struggles.
Hitler , Mussolini, Francisco Franco , etc., came to power through popular support. Hitler came to power through election not once but surprisingly twice. Fascism in our times has evolved into competitive populism. In short, political parties come with populist policies which the opposition is not at all in a position to oppose, they silently accept them or just show opposition for the sake of opposition, tokenism. Here we need to assume parties as bourgeoise party, either comprador or regional. Thus fascism these days comes in the form of parliamentary democracy, as populism constructed on fake news, hatred, polarization, which obviously help capitalists and undermine the working class consciousness.
In Israel people are coming out in public sphere in support of genocide. In India also, especially in cow belt masses have in majority voted for BJP which builds it Brahmanical patriarchal party structure on the basis of the Muslim hatred . The disgrace is BJP woman leader even though later expelled called up for mass rape of Muslim women, they call upon people to boycott Muslim shops, social distancing from Muslims, in the name of love jihad they create Islamophobia against inter religious marriages , they covertly practice the same thing on Dalits and Bahujans.
As fascism is centred with culture and past glory, the revival of the working class literature, demonstrations of economic conditions of working class, celebrating working class art, which will definitely create the positive energy and the gathering will strengthen the unity.
“ When the leadership has failed. Even so the leadership can and must be recreated among the masses. Masses are the rock on which the final victory of the revolution will be built”.
“The development of fascism and fascist dictatorship assume different kind in different countries according to historical, social, economic conditions and to the national peculiarities and international position of the given countries.
In Indian context, we need to approach national questions on the Marxist Leninist line. It challenges Hindi hegemony as Stalin categorically characterizes the nations to be built on common language, mental makeup, economic relations , territory.
Bund will always divide the working class people who live in common territory, share same economic relations and some what share same culture and language, at least in social sphere. Bund just identifies people just on their birth in particular race, caste etc, even though they live in same nation. Shivsena, Naam Thamizhar like parties do this job for Indian fascist state by segregating people of same kind and creating artificial cultural division among them. This is anti- communist and pro establishment .
As lenin says its our job to find the right party we need to find correct party which works in Marxist -Leninist way !
“Pretence of a revolutionary program which is cleverly adapted to the interest and demand of large mass“
-Clara Zetkin , defines as character of fascism
As the Indian fascism tried to build nation on the Hindi ,Hindu, Hindutuva. which is questioned by many rational ideologues like Periyar, Phule , Ambedkar, Iyodhi das, Narayana guru and many. Which could not be found on Aryan philosophies.
Rationalists like Kalburgi, Gauri Lankesh, Pansare, Dabolkar who just tried to revive the Anti Brahminical culture were murdered. Gauri Lankesh and Kalburgi just derived a conclusion that Lingayat is different from veer shivaite. Lingayat which in doctrine Basavanna preaches equality. As the fascists want to built up nationality on the basis of varna system they just try to crookedly inculcate all the culture and paint the varna system upon it.
Dabolkar just fought against the superstition was murdered as those activities will simple rattle the people against brahminism, which is the root of this hindutuva fascism.
Aryan culture belittled the Dravidian culture and ill treated the people. Through caste system and holy texts they legitimise it.
In recent times fascist states encourage settlements around the areas which challenges fascism. Eg. Sri lanka, Israel,etc.; even in India the budgets and government policies in education, job opportunities, business clearly shows how it favors settlements. Eg. NEET, government jobs where North Indians were given opportunities to take places of indigenous people. As we already saw how north India functions as artery of Hindi hegemony.
