The difference between twenty-first century neofascism and 1930s fascism is that state resources are all the greater.

  • Democratic fascists of the Wilson-Hoover-FDR type relied on orders, experts, and government agencies with broad mandates to impose state control. Nondemocratic fascists such as Mussolini relied on black-clad thugs to gain power, then ruled as dictators once installed.
  • Today state power is vastly more pervasive. Digital surveillance, social media, data mining, and customized content are at the fingertips of those with a fascist agenda.
  • The fascist impulse is to crowd out liberty and mandate all human action. Private property is allowed but only if its use is subordinate to state designs.
