What Happens Now?

Fine piece. But you miss the “who” of fascism. In every society there are isolated groups who do not participate and cannot be drawn into into existing community, party, or affiliation. They feel and act aggrieved. They search for compensation. For a way to get even with their persecutors. Fascism provides that. And, in return they form the mass base for fascist movements and government. Trump tapped into these groups in the US. United them behind him. And then inflamed them to boiling. Watch them on any nightly news show. They are ready and willing to destroy the US, to rebuild it as the society that serves them and destroys their enemies. Ordinary people unable to cope or belong anywhere are fascism. In that way fascism is a very small movement.
