The Corporatists

CORPORATISTS of left, right and centre show a marked hostility to allegations that the European Union is fundamentally fascist. This is perhaps not surprising since they combine in their belief in supranational government, collective solutions, corporatist economics, State intervention and what Tony Blair often termed the “Third Way” most of the characteristics of fascism.

They must therefore seek to distance themselves from that discredited ideology. This is made easier if they can find an enemy to whom they can ascribe the values of “fascism” – they choose nationalists and those they term “the extreme right”.

October 2008CORPORATISTS of left, right and centre show a marked hostility to allegations that the EuropeanUnion is fundamentally fascist. This is perhaps not surprising since they combine in their belief insupranational government, collective solutions, corporatist economics, State intervention and whatTony Blair often termed the “Third Way” most of the characteristics of Fascism.They must therefore seek to distance themselves from that discredited ideology. This is madeeasier if they can find an enemy to whom they can ascribe the values of 
“Fascism” – they choosenationalists and those they term “the extreme right.”
A fine example is the article by Professor Richard Overy in the London Evening Standard of 15thMay 2002 who described `Fascism` as an exclusively `right wing` movement. This false analysiswas supported by pictures of the Frenchman Le Pen and the late Austrian politician Jorg Haider who are in principal nationalists, not fascists. The defining aspect of fascism is that it is neither right nor left nor centrist it is left and right and centrist as the support for fascism in the 1930sfrom Liberals like Lloyd George, Conservatives like Samuel Hoare and Socialists like RamsayMacdonald, Lord Allen of Hurtwood and Arnold Toynbee clearly demonstrate.Fascism as represented by Hitler’s Germany, Mussolini’s Italy and the Vichy Francecollaborationists most certainly contained right wing elements, but had at least as many leftistfactions. Mussolini was a socialist (he was the editor of the Italian Socialist Party’s newspaper).Hitler joined the German Labour Party and just as Tony Blair rid Britain in the 1990’s of itsnationalisation policies so did Hitler in pre war Germany.Whereas the much vilified Le Pen joined the Resistance against Fascism, former French PresidentFrancois Mitterand, later the leader of the French Socialist Party was a hero of the Fascist Vichyregime. The wartime leader of British Fascism, Oswald Mosley was a Labour minister and becamethe leader of the British Union of Fascists. His wife Lady Diana Mosley (91) recently declared in aBBC interview her opposition to Le Pen and her support for the European Union! Fascism is on the move again in the form of the European Super-Statists who have mirrored in theEU project virtually every political and economic structure of 1940s Fascist Europe. Now, as itwas back then, Czechoslovakia has been broken up. Yugoslavia has been carved up into petty`state-lets,` and currencies have been abolished.. Now as then, if the `Eurocrats` have their way,national parliaments are existing on borrowed time, to be maintained as useless shells. Now asthen, the consistent anti-fascists in Europe - Russia and Yugoslavia - have been attacked and the
