Trump and Elections Stir Up Fascist Movement
At first Donald Trump’s campaign caused outrage at his anti-Mexican attacks, but people thought of him as a clown impossible to elect. Now people are taking the situation more seriously and saying that Trump is stirring up a growing fascist movement.
What is fascism? Fascism is a political form of state power. It is the open terroristic dictatorship of the mega-corporate state, which is the merger of the social, economic and political power of the mega-corporations with state and government.
Its cutting edge is the wave of murders by police that swept through the U.S. The police shooting of Michael Brown, the choking murder of Eric Garner and the disappearance-murder of 43 Mexican students in 2014 exposed a pattern of police murder and violence woven into the fabric of life of the destitute workers of the world. “Hands up, don’t shoot,” “I can’t breathe,” and, “Bring them back alive,” became international slogans of protest against the mega-corporate and narco-state power.
The mega-corporation (megacorp) is at the foundation of the new capitalistic world order and supersedes the authority of national political states, regional blocs and governmental regulations and controls.
Mega means gigantic. The mega-corporation is the result of the concentration and centralization of capital in the hands of the very, very few. This immense concentration of wealth at one pole is the cause of poverty and destitution among the majority of the earth. Led by speculative finance, protected by the U.S. government, the mega-corporations continue to consolidate their grip on political power, as the means to protect private property and increase profitability.
In a society increasingly based on robotics, where human labor becomes a secondary factor, the democratic republic is replaced by the mega-corporate state, which seeks to realign the relationship of the individual to corporate interests based on the individual’s value as a consumer.
The merger of the mega-corporation with the state is a new thing in history. This merger is the megacorp state, which is inherently a fascist state.
The U.S. elections presently underway reflect the social consolidation of fascism.
