Gottfried examines the semantic twists and turns the time period has persisted because the Thirties and strains the word’s polemical functionality in the context of current ideological struggles. Like “conservatism,” “liberalism,” and different phrases whose meanings have replaced with time, “fascism” has been used arbitrarily through the years and now stands for a number of iniquities that progressives, multiculturalists, and libertarians oppose, no matter if they provide no unmarried, coherent account of the old evil they condemn.

Certain elements have contributed to the term’s obscure utilization, Gottfried writes, together with the equation of all fascisms with Nazism and Hitler, in addition to the increase of a post-Marxist left that expresses predominantly cultural competition to bourgeois society and its Christian and/or nationwide parts. those that stand within the manner of social swap are brushed aside as “fascist,” he contends, an epithet that's now not linked to country corporatism and different good points of fascism that have been as soon as crucial yet at the moment are broadly neglected.
