The Return of Fascism in Contemporary Capitalism

  • Samir Amin
Keywords: Fascism, Philosophy, Political Economy

Abstract

It is not by chance that the very title of this contribution links the return of fascism on the political scene with the crisis of contemporary capitalism. Fascism is not synonymous with an authoritarian police regime that rejects the uncertainties of parliamentary electoral democracy. Fascism is a particular political response to the challenges with which the management of capitalist society may be confronted in specific circumstances.
