I barely know where to begin, except to say that we may be, probably 
are, at the beginning of a long fascist wave.

Why? Because the same patterns always obtain. The economy stagnates. The 
liberal-centre and mainstream Right, persistent in its course despite 
obvious crisis, collapses. Sections of the middle class resent their 
decline, blame the poor, and fear being driven to their condition, and 
radicalise to the right. The Left is on the back foot, the labour 
movement weakened, often by the actions of its own side. The views of 
fascists are paraded and amplified in media economies that cannot but 
find them fascinating, compulsive -- at first with ridicule, then with 
apprehension, then with cautious respect.
