that post you replied to, is either a AI-prompter, ie a real human using an AI, or it could be a bot that has no clue what you talking about, and just generates a string of words based on brute force statistical correlation. I'm not sure if it's wise to reply to these posts.
>Sure but I grew up under bush and conflating actual fascism with Bush jr's reign of idiocy is kind of laughable.
The neocons like Bush are not fascists, but they might be the progenitor of fascism, their attacks on civil liberties are very ominous.
>Yeah christian theologians are unwitting facists if they take their ideology to the extreme
You share this view with Chris Hedges, he wrote a book about the christian-right potentially being mobilized by fascism. It's a possibility, but potential fascism in the 21st century could wear a different hat, even woke-fascism is not impossible.
>There would be no historical narrative for it because we have never been through something like that. The united states is much more powerful than many fascist countries that have existed in the past, so, I am gonna say the US going full goose stepping boots on the ground fascist? Probably not something we want to be instigating.
Remember that Fascism is capitalism in decay, 20th century fascism in Europe came when capitalism entered a potentially terminal crisis. The US is an empire and it has an imperial finance bourgeoisie. The US empire is also in decline, and that means that this imperial finance bourgeoisie will see it's power waning, and they will want to use the US military to get it back with brute force hard power. That's the class-basis for potential American fascism. However It is not set in stone, US imperial structures could wither away while US internal peaceful institutional structures regrow to displace it, so "Imperial-Exit" doesn't have to be a explosion of fascist violence. As far as strength goes, by the time US-fascism would have degenerated into an open-dictatorship of the reactionary imperial finance bourgeoisie, it would no longer be the same juggernaut it is today.
>The idiots who think that this will magically lead to communism have just given no serious though or credence to what they are proposing.
All fascism seems to be a kind of national suicide, so in that sense US fascism would not lead to communism in the US, acceleration-ism is a type of idiocy indeed.
However communist resurgence in the rest of the World would be the result. The US destroying it self via fascism would spell the end of pretty much all the vassal regimes that the US maintains, and their activities to suppress communism would cease too. Hence a historic window of opportunity for many countries to have communist revolutions would open up. It's also somewhat likely that a Fascist US would start a war with China, which it would loose because China has 3x the industrial capacity. China would be forced to change it's mixed economy into a command economy to sustain war-production. After that war, the institutional momentum would likely propel them into becoming a fully planned cybernetic socialist economy. They would not repeat the political and economic mistakes the Soviets made, and unlike the computationally limited USSR, they would have the abundant computer-power to make that work like a really well oiled machine. So WW3 would definitely speed up China's transition to full socialism, but it's likely that half the world would be destroyed also. The slow path is definitely preferable.
