Re: might as well write a book.. look at the length
No, you're confusing two different things I said.
My point is that you get your conception of reality from what you read and see in the mass media, which is totally controlled by the people that adhere to Leftist ideologies. They gained this control after winning WW2, and as a result ALL European countries got a Socialist/Leftist government. The same forces completed the infiltration of America around 1930.
Hence, what you read about Fascism in the mass media of the Communists is ALWAYS going to be disinformation, misrepresentation and lies.
Now, what the Communist mass media does is to hoodwink people who are not willing and/or able to check the sources for themselves into believing that Fascism equals oppression of the people; that Fascism was against the will of the people. The Communist mass media equate Dictatorship with oppression and Democracy with freedom, i.e. they are trying to manipulate people's thinking so that they get an automatic reaction of aversion when they hear the word 'dictatorship' and affection when they hear the word 'democracy'. Everybody loves 'freedom', right? And 'oppression' is bad, right?
The problem is it's got nothing to do with the Truth of Reality. They are manipulating the masses by connecting words that trigger an emotional response to, in this case, the concept of Fascism, without the masses ever having read a single original work from a single original source. This leads to a false conception of Fascism in particular and Reality in general, based on false information.
Fascism was nowhere near "the same kinda hell" Communism de facto was and still is but they certainly want people to equate the two, so that they can say what's happening in America "is fascism", for they are SCARED TO DEATH that the people will find out the truth, namely that America is the perfect Communist State and ALL major politicians are in fact self-confessed Marxist-Leninists, Trotskyites and Communists.
Finally, in an oppressive totalitarian system, like the democratic one, it is never the propaganda that fools anyone. The mass media fools only those who want to be fooled, and they want to be fooled because they know that if they knew the truth they would not have the courage to do anything about it anyway. Only those let themselves be fooled who have given up and hence convince themselves that to survive they have to adapt and accept the system.
Now, I don't claim to be an expert on Fascism, but at least I read some original literature and the more I read the more I get convinced accepted mainstream history is a lie. And how do I know what I read is the Truth? I just know. If you don't want to understand I can't and don't want to make you understand. If you have humility and courage, go with an open Heart and learn for yourself.
Ultimately this Quest for Truth is soo not about politics.
