Articles from Rally, Comrades! on Fascism Today and the Tasks of Revolutionaries

“The modern fascist movement is arising on the foundation of the antagonism between the qualitatively new means of production and the productive relations of capitalism. In the past, the political right and left expressed definite sections of the capitalist class. Today, there is no objective foundation for a split in the ruling class, as there was in past periods. Under the conditions of today, the struggle is between two hostile classes, rather than between two groups within the ruling class. The State cannot disengage from the corporations, and no one in the ruling class is advocating that. Objectively, both the “left” and the “right” of the ruling class are fascist.  Fascism today seeks to facilitate a whole new world based on private property without capitalism. The real target of the conscious fascist core is the political system — the substitution of one State form for another, that will allow the full scope of private property interests to operate without restriction.

Trump’s candidacy provided the ruling class with an opening to present fascism as a political solution to the American people. It also offered an opportunity to obscure the realities of fascism and disorient those who oppose fascism. The discussion divorced fascism from its economic foundations and its class nature. The solutions presented were to reform the capitalist system and strengthen bourgeois democracy. By presenting Trump as the “fascist” and Clinton as upholding bourgeois democracy, the ruling class was able to further mask the realities of the modern fascist movement.”   – Fascism Rising Fascist Movement Makes Unity of Class More Urgent, 2016

The age-old vision of a world without scarcity, without exploitation, class domination, organized violence, and stultifying labor has been the dream of millenia. The new completely socialized labor-eliminating means of production ... sets the basis for its realization. Now human history can begin, the light of the individual shining in the full brightness of liberated life, that can only be realized within true equality and cooperation: communism, a cooperative society.
