Why Johnny Can’t Identify Il Duce: The Cellular Methodology of Fascism

This series identifies and analyzes several reasons for Americans’ lack of awareness of fascism, its history and its methodology. The first program focuses on lowering American educational standards and the deliberate obfuscation of the historical connection between powerful industrial and financial interests and the genesis and propagation of fascism. These factors significantly undermined contemporary understanding of the political forces which produced Hitler and Mussolini.

In addition, the  series details important episodes in the development of French fascist forces culminating in the Vichy collaborationist government of Marshall Petain. The role of French fascists in undermining France and contributing to the German victory of 1940 is one of the many aspects of the history of fascism which has been deliberately obscured. (Among those fascists was former French President Francois Mitterand, at who’s insistence the euro and the European Monetary Union came into being.)

Finally, this series highlights the clandestine methodology of fascism, particularly the underground organizational structure of fascist movements and its effectiveness in subverting established democracies. Discussion centers on the underground Nazi cells of contemporary Germany and their evolution from the cellular organization established by the Third Reich prior to its defeat. The program also sets forth the role of the Swedish fascist Per Engdahl, and his role in maintaining the continuity of fascism from Hitler and Mussolini to the present. The re-emergence of fascism in Austria and the Czech Republic is discussed, as is international networking between neo-Nazis.

The series also contains discussion of collaboration between neo-Nazis and national intelligence services, and connections between neo-Nazis and “respectable” power politicians, plus analysis of the Liberty Lobby, an influential American fascist organization.
