The new fascism - two photos say it all

The new fascism - two photos say it all

 
THESE two photographs, circulating round the world yesterday, tell us all we need to know about the new fascism threatening humanity.
The first shows US Marines in Afghanistan, posing proudly with a home-made addition to the Stars and Stripes which ‘coincidentally’ happens to be the same as the Nazi SS logo.
The second shows a Greek riot cop kicking in the head a protester who had dared to show his opposition to the slavery and poverty being imposed on his people by the IMF and the banks.
We do not think it is an exaggeration to describe the current neoliberal global regime as a new form of fascism.
On the level of political ideology, there are clearly big differences between the nationalist corporatism of Mussolini and Hitler and the internationalist capitalism we now must confront.
But there are similarities, and indeed a traceable continuation, on a deeper level.
At the end of the Second World War, the US and UK recruited large numbers of former Nazis and Fascists into their Gladio network of anti-communist secret armies.
At the same time the West learned from the Nazis’ work in various fields – from rocket science to  mass manipulation by propaganda, which also proved so easy to transfer to the commercial realm.
As so often happens, the victory of capitalism over fascism turned out in the long term to have been more of a merger.
While, on paper, the neoliberal model presents itself as the ‘democratic’ opposite of fascism, that has always been a lie, as anybody paying a modicum of attention will have noticed.
Now that it finds its hegemony under threat, its fascistic essence is becoming harder to conceal.
It is significant that more obviously identifiable far-right extremists, who in the 20th century would have been fiercely opposed to ‘cosmopolitan’ capitalism, are now instinctively drawn to defending the neoliberal world order, as we have previously noted.
Like the US Marines attracted to the SS branding, they somehow know that this is the same entity, resurfaced after its apparent death nearly 70 years ago in a new guise but with the same life-hating brutality.
Millions gave their lives to defeat the evil of the original fascist incarnation. 
And now a new generation are going to have to do it all again.

Regular updates are being made on the From the Greek Streets blog.

Here are the last few entries at the time of posting.

19:50 Quite a few injured demonstrators. On the Propylea of Athens University take place harsh battles at the moment, people report of head to head clashes. The Law School occupation has defended all police attacks and eventually it  remains there, More than 500 people in the school now. The occupation calls for Red Cross medics who are on the streets to go towards the school with first aid material as there are injured demonstrators in the School.

19.40 At least five open fronts on Fillelinon str, on Othonos, Syntagma square, Stadiou and behind the ministry of Finance. Face-to-face clashes outside the Law school. Things temporarily calm down outside parliament.

Greek anarchists attack president's home

Greek anarchists attack president's home


GREEK anarchists launched a daring raid on the home of President Karolos Papoulias.

A statement posted on Contra Info said about 60 activists attacked the personal guard, the guard booth and official vehicles outside the politician's residence.

Papoulias’ personal guard fled, and flyers were thrown at the spot in solidarity with the anarchists Stella Antoniou, Kostas Sakkas, Giorgos Karagiannidis and Alexandros Mitroussias.

The activists withdrew at a coordinated pace from the place, which is located at short distance from the police headquarters.

A few minutes later, a DELTA police motorcycle unit appeared, using flash-bang grenades in an effort to reach the protesters, but with no success.

The action was held in solidarity with Stella Antoniou and the other comrades accused in the same case, as a first response to the denial of her application for release on bail.

The statement said: "These actions will continue until Stella Antoniou is released from prison."

Other encouraging news is the occupation and self-management of a general hospital in northern Greece. 

Wednesday February 8 is likely to see the confirmation of yet more 'austerity' measures to be imposed by the neoliberal global system on the Greek people, despite ongoing angry protests including a general strike on Tuesday.
