The Appeal of Fascism: of how certain systems "want" to be other systems


You have to admit that it's impressive.


I feel a little like Cartman.


Fascism has a little bit of appeal to me, an appeal that I refuse, (so far) to embrace.

Certain political systems, "want to be something else." Other political systems, "want to be anything other than what they are." And some political systems want to be, "more of themselves."

Don't ask me why this is so. I don't know the answer. It probably has something to do with the structure of the human brain, or economics, or both.

Fascism = a system that wants to be even more of itself, until it converts into monarchy when it's numerous f├╝hrers get tired of being assassinated.

Communism = a system that wants to convert into hyper capitalist oligarchy, or kleptocracy.

Chinese hyper capitalism = a system that wants to be itself? Or that wants to convert into democracy?

Democracy = a system that wants to be anything except democracy? Or a system that wants to convert into oligarchy? Or covert into dictatorship? Perhaps democracy wants to be even more democracy?

Neocameralism = a system that wants to convert into monarchy, or have its shares bought by a foreign power and become a colony.

(Neocameralism is a hypothetical form of city-state where the government is a corporation that issues fungible shares of stock)

Anarcho capitalism = a system that wants to convert into gang warfare, then kingdoms, and then a federation of kingdoms.

This is the problem of NRx: how to design a system that doesn't want to be something else? That "wants" to be more of itself? And that is not monarchy?
