not likely, facism is in the human soul, and operates at multiple levels today, facism against the ugly facism against the short, facism against the stupid. whats is the definition of facism ? well the best i could find is taken from one of the better thought out options at wikipedia :
“A form of political behavior marked by obsessive preoccupation with community decline, humiliation or victimhood and by compensatory cults of unity, energy and purity, in which a mass-based party of committed nationalist militants, working in uneasy but effective collaboration with traditional elites, abandons democratic liberties and pursues with redemptive violence and without ethical or legal restraints goals of internal cleansing and external expansion”
I think this definition, try’s to tie itself to closely to the idea of political activity and the history of the second world war, ie presuming political partys actions then was a template for the definition of the word, this simplification turns the tool into a much better device to brand people with, than opening up to the true nature from which it stems, which i believe is all “unwarranted prejudice” of almost any kind, and facism really is the people group version of unwarranted prejudice, which then sadly has dragged the idea of nationalism down with it. Being that nationalism no longer perceieved as say a ‘common bond of identity within a community’, has been reborn as a mark of social pariahdom to even believe in the concept of community one belongs too, on the scale of a country.
Sadly unwarranted prejudice is as rife in todays society as much as it was in anytime throughout history, mainly because most of the human population currently and throughout time have to find ways to reduce the quantity choices, and judgements and decisions to be made about an ever increasing population of people without going to the effort of properly evaluating, anything as this takes too much time, hence people generally and unfairly make false judgements to narrow the problem of making decisions about people, to a smaller subset of options. humans have been doing this since the dawn of time when it comes to attractivity, ie facist prejudiced behavior against people who are short or ugly, and their are no rules in law to protect people from this abuse in society ? So why are we so shocked by the concept that people might use race or religious difference as a way of reducing this subset of choices ?
Perhaps it stems from the fact that an ugly and short people are not going to unite and create a war over being unfairly treated by their appearance/height. Where as by comparison, religious facism has often proven a fertile ground for war, religion effectively so : because it was one of the first if not prime corporate entity within culture to be founded through the history of culture, and was one of the first to use threat marketing and power mongering), Race as well, through and nationalism and the “cult of the tribe” has also proved fertile ground for war.
The truth being perhaps that facism against short or ugly people, couldnt create a war because those people are were already disenfranchised in society, pre the evolution of the tribe or religion concepts that came later, they could never create enough cohesion and power, to enduce a war against the those who were facist against them.
