I would say that in capitalism your labor is your own resource. What your labor is worth, is determined by the market.

Yuval Harari is a typical limited but overhyped thinker. Everything he says in this video shows a limited understanding of Fascism or the nature of politics.

When the Israelis, the Jews, express pride in their Jewish heritage and even strive to rape and eliminate an entire people (Palestinians), nothing is criticised in the media. However if a German or person of European descent expresses a remote need for his people to stay the majority of his country, he needs to be stamped out, killed, as an evil fascist. In the end this is the crux of the problem that Yuval, an Israeli, does not address. Fascism has become a meaningless word that the mediatic establishment call members of the White race that express a distaste for being displaced. It has nothing to do with the original meaning of the word. Ultimately...the problem is not Fascism but the civilisational power struggle that is still going on today.

Wow, now there's two people talking shit. Everyone attempts to control their surroundings, including the people, for their own needs. Its a normal human trait. Also I think they are mostly explaining xenophobia not fascism.

Fascism became already popular since last 15 years feminists, anti-white racists, liberal leftists( mainly left wing zionists) and neocons( zionist right wing jews and evangelist christians) ruled academia, MSM and tech giants.

The dark side is seductive because it appeals to the ego. If evil were repulsive it would by definition through exclusion not be attractive. Doing what is good is hard because it goes against our very biological directive--self preservation Christ said, and through his life showed, that the greatest thing another man can do for his friends is lay down his life. To deny his own self. Christ says take up your cross and follow me. It is an appeal to do what is burdensome and self annihilating ----patadoxically, only then can the self be most sublimely realized.

At the end of the day people would rather have an authoritarian that listens and loves his/her people, rather than a totalitarian government that hates it's people. What differentiates our government from any other tyrannical government if they cannot act on the most basic result in a YES/NO vote. We are tired of not being listened to, and the fact that you are just cottoning on to this shows the blissful ignorance that the left has been living in.

Fascism is a left wing, collective authoritarian ideology, it is to the right of communism and got labelled right wing by the communists, but in today’s world it’s on the left, communism, fascism, socialism all collective, on the right conservatism, classical liberal, libertarian, all individualism.

I can not see earth as anything other than a good place to come and learn what you are not. It doesn't need fixed because it serves its purpose as it is. It is intended to be full of extreme experiences and everything in between because that is how it serves its purpose. Tom Campbells "My Big TOE" at least gives a more reasonable explaination as to why the most obviously insane ideas somehow manage to increase and flourish despite being excessively foggy, hazey and unfocused in form. They somehow manage to be given the status of "normal, good, necessary or even reasonable." We get hooked into this "fight or flight" seemingly perpetual way of being insane the minute we take it too seriously and believe in it. Pick your 'ism?

Fascism is a way of life. An ideology where you put the greater good of your nation and people before you. A mere cell in a greater organism. While the depressed individualist goes to work at a restaurant to make money, the fascist goes to work to feed his people. The fascist has purpose.

End the vilification of Trump supporters and end the attack on whites as best means to bring on the Fascism to come is a system in place (as now, thanks to Democratic President Obama on December 31, 2011 gave the citizenry inability to be safe from a Hard right authoritarian, now we have criminal reform to give final part of means to create mass extermination of native tribal nations of Americans the racist calls native or Indian and then also African American poor and the poor white for unity) taken and brought forth with a welcoming to those losing power (more the illusion of ever having power by forgetting the history of class, unions, American socialism, Marxism, Civil war, poor whites in the south, Anarchy, etc); as, whites hurt in a middle class tradition weakened to broken, as all those feeling like the worst are up lifted by the one they see as a father who will keep them safe, make them feel special and awesome, and take from the weaker hated more powerless minority group. The enemy of a loved emotional leader, is seen not caring, for their humanity stripped away. Made criminal is ways of which worst attitudes grow into moral decay. Moral decay starts when morality is never relative or non existing, culture is superior as fact justifying lost humanity and pride in cruelty, as morals twisting is done using fear. The psychopaths using fear, looking strong, is moral cause that people who support the state and a single party for the state and private owner of nations fate, in getting rid of those no different in being a kind loving human being, is An Antichrist God of illusion to rational people that simply vanish.

Hitler was the greatest leader of the past 500 years. One reason he obtained to Time magazine cover in the 1930's was for his economic miracle- turning Germany around after thorough collapse by jewish Marxists in the Weimar republic. His greatness is being rediscovered and appreciated. An artist-wanderer turned messiah- a real life story every bit as good as Ridley Scott's "Gladiator" #TGSNT

It’s back because people are seeing documentaries such as https://youtu.be/9ZBfEcQgULI Which provide factual evidence proving what we are taught in history books and at school are a lie, that both world wars were to benefit rich men and to create Wall Street and enable sweat shops and slavery to be continued while shutting down western industries... all our grandfathers and fellow countrymen caught against one another for NOTHING. We’re now seeing the affects of the wars and everything they fought to defend has been a lie also. Every country is screwed and the Elite banksters and so fourth benefit from our hard earned wages, where we can barely afford a thing and our kids are raised by the school system. we have no family interest and are forced to believe that multiculturalism is a good thing when it forces one culture to not express there’s and the other to push there’s in the others face... when really we are all diverse and need space. Our kids all turn out to be fuck ups, our food is over priced and taxes, fuel, healthcare, finance, the rise of homelessness is never ending. ‘the war on drugs’ ‘terrorism’ is a fucking global joke as we basically find all the terrorists or were once allies and stab them in the back, invade some poor fuckers country and bleed their country dry if all natural resources and just move on to the next beautiful country and destroy it all to find our vile system of filth. politicians do t give a shit and divide the people for 1 and make money and cause wars but don’t fight in them.. our countries are full of crime, murder, half the rich men who do run the world are weird demon worshippers or paedopholes... our whole system is fucking disgusting. and it was very different 70 years ago. I think people need to wake up to be honest, start doing some more research from both sides of the story before commenting and then realising that we’re stuck in the mud and aren’t progressing. They hide technologies that can clean our planet and give clean water to all, they force the people against one another and cause all wars which cause us to fight in the first place.. and you know what. WE THE PEOPLE NEVER WANT TO FIGHT ITS ALWAYS CAUSED BY SOMEONE RICH AND FAR FAR AWAY! Or they’re caused by past events which is like one big ricochet.

The curiosity for me is it appears the moderate left is increasingly being informed by its more radical elements, leftists often tacitly support their extremist brethren by not challenging extremist rhetoric in their ranks. The focus on fascism is odd considering how unpopular that idea is even within the political right. Nobody wishes to be associated with fascism especially right wingers who work to distance themselves selves from far right extremist ideology. Which of course is why it's such an easy trope for the left to use against them. Weaponised language is a standard leftist tactic of course name calling is common to both sides as we appear to become increasingly partisan across the west. The so called rise of the right across the west in my opinion is not a far right resurgence but a conservative one, as leftist orthodoxy has become mainstream espoused even by traditionally conservative political parties and the media at large the conservative members of society have to move further right for representation as a response to the rather more silly ideas of the left which is currently unchecked. The right wing unchecked descends into nationalist supremacist authoritarianism whereas the left unchecked descends into collectivist authoritarianism, neither of which is desirable and both of which have left a huge pile of corpses in their wake. This current pull to the right I believe to a corrective mechanism to bring society back to the centre ground unfortunately the media is primarily leftist ( in the UK at least ) so the narrative of the right is largely expunged, a dangerous trend forcing conservatives to look elsewhere to less responsible sources for representation. I recommend a return to the middle ground by challenging the leftist narratives and in time the right will take care of itself. Fascism isn't really the issue here for me but radical leftism is,as its refusal to appreciate that 50% of the population are likely to be temperamentally conservative is driving people to the right and with nowhere to go on the moderate right they end up in heading further right than may normally be the case. There was an interesting case I observed recently in the UK where a man attending a right wing political March was interviewed by the media expressed the view that although he wanted to see change he found the views of some on the march distasteful but he had nowhere else to go.

Q. WHAT IS FASCISM ?. the uk national curriculum n schools describes rightly nazi germany as an example. we all agree with that.. BUT it fails miserably to point out that as the Only type.. it fails to even mention soviet union laft wing fascism. .when as we all know Many many more millions died in left wing facisim thsn died in Germanys attempt at facisim.. freedom of thought without being hated and abused for having different opinions is democracy. shutting down others is itself fascist.

G. Spencer Travers (5 months ago)
At about 2:29, Russell demonstrates what the axis of socialist evil actually is. To achieve Hitler's utopia of Aryan dominance, the wealth of those who had earned it- the jews- had to be expropriated and redistributed to those who had not- everyone complicit in the final solution- and this methodology is being extolled by Russell. I don't think I have ever been more disappointed in him.

Adam Stevens (5 months ago)
Excellent point that Fascism is almost always portrayed as ugly and unambiguously evil in both entertainment and school-book history while failing to portray what was so compelling about it for the people involved. There is one piece of entertainment from the last couple of years that did a pretty good job with it, which was Woody Harrelson's character in War for Planet of the Apes. He was clearly dictatorial/fascist, but he was in a position that most people could empathize with to some degree.
trev moffatt (5 months ago)
Anti-Immigration and anti-free trade are not yet fascism. They could be heading toward that ballpark, but they could just mark a return to more paleo forms of conservatism. Which in some ways is worse, at least with fascism, you know what you're up against - you can fight it. And generally speaking it's a short term spasm. Whereas this new Old Conservative order might be around for a long time, might become a permanent fixture. Basically a slow but steady return to the 19th century. Which as I see it, is a by-product of three key developments - Firstly, the revival of more primitive forms of capitalism; secondly, the end of communism, and thirdly, the social engineering engendered by both Liberal and Conservative governments, which endeavoured to increase the size of the petty business class. The Petty Bourgeois being a key social group in terms of reactionary politics.
