    As We Go Marching

    As We Go Marching John T. Flynn writes a chilling book about the real meaning of fascism. It is not some far distance ideology. It is right here at home. It’s amazing that this book was not censored during World War II. I wonder how much more open he would have been if he had felt the freedom to say the full truth? Kick off the discussion!

    Dominance, Sharing, and Privacy (DSP), The Three Principles of Sociality

    Dominance, Sharing, and Privacy gives us a simplified (maybe oversimplified), and intuitive way to categorize human sociality. Instead of thinking of social structures as being diverse and too complicated to be categorized, these three categories allow us to classify behaviors that address conflict as one of three types or a combination of the three.  For example, might makes right is not really a property norm but it is a dominance strategy. The ethic that the world belongs to everyone is not an alternative property norm, it is the nullification of property in favor of a sharing norm.  The violent defense of a territory is not a might makes right or dominance behavior but is the defense of privacy. The reluctance to intrude on others prior establish territory is not just a fear of retaliation but a respect for privacy.   For moe read: Dominance, Sharing, and Privacy (DSP), The Three Principles of Sociality

    Fascism is just another form of socialism

    Jeffrey Tucker wrote in pertinent part “You can choose the socialist who wants to wreck the world in one way, or the fascist who wants to wreck the world in another way.” Since fascism is just another form of socialism, is Mr. Tucker arguing  “you can choose the socialist who wants to wreck the world in one way, or the socialist who wants to wreck the world in another way?

Description

Everyone’s favorite Chief Liberty Officer, Jeffrey Tucker, is back for another dose of Liberty Classics. This week, he’s chatting about John T. Flynn’s As We Go Marching.

The work of John T. Flynn (1882–1964) is proof that the job of journalist once meant something very serious. As We Go Marching is a work of scholarship by any standard. It is well written, to be sure, but it covers the history and meaning of fascism with fantastic erudition, tracing its permutations from Italy to Germany to the United States.

Flynn was a man of remarkable courage and brilliance. He could not but write and speak the truth. He knew that it would come at a price and it was one he was willing to pay. And look at his legacy! This book is truth spoken to power, and it speaks still and will continue to do so for generations.
