Rejoinder to Robert Porter

- Historicus (anon.)

Abstract


The purpose of my article "Fascism in America" in the October 1952 issue of Monthly Review was as follows: I wished to submit that there is no such thing as a pat, ready-made definition of fascism to be indiscriminately applied as a yardstick to any political, social, and economic constellation regardless of time and space. Formulating such definitions and obstinately clinging to them is neither an indication of "clarity of thought" nor a token of political steadfastness, but merely a demonstration of misplaced dogmatism and of political immaturity.
