pair o ducksfascism.

One of my current interests is Fascism and its relationship to contemporary politics, economics, media, etc. It's difficult in America to get perspectives on Fascism in the media and the net has proved to be a rich resource, though of widely varying quality. I've put these files here for browsing; I don't necessarily identify with any of the content.

Here are some resources culled from a site in Isreal, dealing with fascism in general and current fascist movements in particular.

Recent years have seen an increase of alliances between progressive groups and the far right, with whom they share a certain amount of "anti-government" sentiment. With the general lack of information on fascist thought, Chip Berlet thinks that progressives don't understand who they're getting involved with. In an effort to address the issue, he outlines current far-right groups active in the U.S. and attempts to show fascist influence in some contemporary "left wing" thought.
