An Open Letter to This Year's College Freshman Class On the Subject of Fascism

• By Thomas DiLorenzo

On the one hand, you will be taught that there is nothing more evil, more insidious, more despicable than fascism and fascists.  You might even be invited to become a member of "antifa," the violent criminal gang that sets buildings and cars on fire, clubs people with baseball bats, sprays mace in their faces, throws cinder blocks through store windows, hurls bottles filled with urine and feces at the police, etc., in supposed protests against "fascism."  ("Antifa" is said to stand for "anti-fascism").

But on the other hand you will also be taught that the very things that real, twentieth-century fascists believed in and stood for are what you should believe in and stand for, and that you should have zero tolerance for anyone who disagrees with you.  These things will not be called what they are – fascism – but pleasant-sounding euphemisms like "social justice," "economic democracy," "liberation theology," or "democratic socialism."  You will also be instructed that of all the politicians on the planet, the one whom you should revere and idolize is the seventy-five –year-old self-described socialist Bernie Sanders (who spent part of his honeymoon in Moscow, of all places, during the height of the Cold War).
