This comparison is not surprising. His appeal to a mythical past in which America was Great and took shit from no-one sounds an awful lot like Mussolini's appeal to the greatness of the Roman Empire.

Revisiting 1930s authoritarianism through Donald Trump

Chip in to keep stories like these coming.

Give this to Donald Trump: he helps us picture how the anti-democratic, right-wing, personality-driven movements of the 1930s came to power. Those movements are usually characterized as fascist though they were diverse, and the term itself is hellishly hard to define. As time passed, they faded into an inexplicably "evil" moment in history which thankfully couldn't happen here or now.

Should Canadians be worried about tyranny or fascism?

Photo: pmwebphotos/flickr

Seen on the Internet next to a picture of Conservative Stephen Harper: "From 1939 to 1945 we fought fascists, why should we vote for them?"

The Conservative Party of Canada only pretends to be conservative. rabble.ca parliamentary reporter Karl Nerenberg recently laid out a series of reasons why they are not part of the Canadian Conservative political family.

The Cons and their leader are not fascists either. In fascism, the economy -- labour and capital -- is subservient to the nationalist state. In Canada, as in most Western societies, the state is subservient to corporate capitalism.
