Uh ? Is this supposed to mean something ?
Fascism as something different to capitalism ?
- Fascism is just one way the bourgeoisie has of ruling.

Is he saying socialism isn't on the agenda in such crises ?
I thought he started with the proposition that fascism was always
a response to revolution ?

Is this a Marxism list or what ?
Whoops ! I'm degenerating into personnal abuse rapidly.
I wonder why.
