About the Project
The New Fascism Syllabus is a crowd-sourced collection of writings on the history of fascist, populist, and authoritarian movements and governments during the 20th and 21st centuries. It is intended to serve as a popular entryway into the scholarly literature for those seeking deeper insights into how past societies gravitated towards and experienced varieties of right-wing authoritarianism.
I have already heard it said on four occasions in my lifetime that this new society made by the Revolution has now finally found its natural and permanent form. Four times events afterwards proved that people were wrong.
--Alexis de Toqueville, L'Ancien Régime et la Révolution
What do post-revolutionary societies remember and what do they forget?
