Neocons Are Not Fascists, They’re Worse
Many critics of the current Administration are drawing parallels to Fascism.
But the neoconservative movement now ruling America’s government is a
distinct departure from any previous Administration, and though, at times, followers
may use tactics that are fascistic, the movement is more ominous than Fascism.
This movement was constructed mainly by intellectuals and civilians who were
not and are not elected officials. Never before in American history has such
a grand a priori strategy for America’s destiny controlled the political
process the way it does now. Their grand ideals are clearly outlined in the
"Project for the New American Century" (see Wikipedia).
Administrations, in varying degrees, always had a base of intellectuals contributing
their plans, e.g., Jefferson relied on the Enlightenment philosophers, Kennedy
had Michael Harrington and Arthur Schlesinger, Jr., Johnson followed George
Kennan, Carter had Zbignew Brzezenski, Reagan was guided by Friedman and Laffer.
Bush, however, has merely been the front man for a tremendously influential
cabal, consisting of think-tank pundits, accomplished professors, media executives,
Fortune 100 moguls, evangelists, and many others both on and off the public
The only previous model for the neoconservative movement was David Rockefeller’s
Trilateral Commission, which had selected Carter’s key cabinet members
in ’75 - a year before he was elected. The group also published works
justifying a hike in defense spending, but the range of its ideological ambitions
pale in comparison to the stated ideals of the neoconservative agenda. This
term - neoconservative - has not yet been widely seen for what it truly is:
an unprecedented menace to the sanctity of American democracy. And to some extent
calling it fascistic obscures its true identity and stated mission.
It doesn’t merely represent a clique of overly religious, fiscally conservative
hawks best represented by Rove, Hastert and Frist, who chiefly serve their cause
as political operatives. The neoconservative clique is composed of many secularist
schemers exploiting the Christian right, lofty strategists who have lost faith
in the public’s ability to rule itself wisely, military-industrial operatives
maximizing profits while ensuring America’s might remains unequaled, at
least on paper. It consists of intellectuals who have highjacked the control
of the government, supposedly for the sake of defending and perpetuating it.
The neoconservative control of America represents nothing less than a discreet
coup d’etat that has subverted the democratic process. Ideals now rule
where once the public will was in charge.
It’s understandable that people want to call this Administration fascist
and Nazi and totalitarian, but, in fact, though it incorporates tactics that
share similarities with them, it is a breed apart. Indeed, the neoconservative
agenda is worse than Fascism. Fascism was an ideology presented to a broken
society and at least got the trains to run on time despite its inhumane activities.
On the other hand, Neoconservativism was an ideology presented to a thriving
society that is rapidly bankrupting it, monetarily, ethically, and politically.
Unfortunately, the term, neoconservative, doesn’t offer the same
jolt as Fascism, which helps the neoconservatives to fly under the radar. But
the truth is, the intellectual bullies and bloody professors who construct and
support the ideology of democratic imperialism are doing far more damage than
Mussolini ever did. And one day, in the not too distant future, fascists are
going to seem like juvenile delinquents when compared to America’s 21st
century neoconservatives regardless of what they’re called.
