Reader comment on item: Goodbye Ankara
in response to reader comment: turkish ethnofascism

Submitted by Kepha Hor (United States), Sep 6, 2011 at 20:15

Manohar, if you'd have bothered to look at your own country's Johannes Althsius and his heirs in the Anglophone world, you would have realized how irresponsible your comments about American "fascists" is. Can you imagine Hitler, Mussolini, or any of their imitators wanting to abolish a central government's Department of Education, or call for a great devloution of authority to the constituent parts of a federal union?

And, as for your cuss word "fascism", if I hadn't read a bit of history, I'd strongly suspect that "fascist" was simply a buzzword for someone who took a long hard look at Stalin's regime and said, "There's NO WAY i'd like that for my country!"--regardless of what the anti-Stalinist's ideas of political institutions or practices might be. As it is, I note that fascism is, in fact, nothing but socialism plus a taste for grand opera costumes and overworked nationalism.
