At Last A Dose Of Reality

Reader comment on item: Fascism's Legacy: Liberalism

Submitted by Seamus MacNemi (United States), Jan 10, 2008 at 07:24

Here is a subject that I have been harping on for quite some time now, often seemingly to no avail. It takes little effort to substitute church for state and you see the whole pan of our history from the demise of the Roman empire to the present. The so called "Holy Roman Empire" was in effect and in actuality a brutally fascist state founded in the name of religion

The Roman empire before the advent of Christianity was in itself a fascist militaristic state as was the empire of Alexander before it. When Constantine acknowledged the Church he merely made it a tool for the consolidation and expansion of his empire. Unfortunately, the good fathers of the Church, either in ignorance or by deliberate design on the part of some jumped inline with the ambitions of Constantine. Thus we have the course for next millineum set in the decisions of the Council of Nicea. There was nothing new or original in either Hitler or Mussolini. They were merely following upon the model established by Constantine.

Herein lie the reasons for the quasi religious facade behind the formation of the Third Reich including the preoccupation of the Nazi leadership with the so called occult. Here also is the modus of the Communist Party in its ambition to convert the world to its theology of socialist materialism.
