In the absence of any rational justification for them, what the continual lockdown threats and irrational rules surrounding COVID-19 clearly demonstrate is that we currently live under fascist rule. It’s no “creeping” fascism. It’s here. Now.
Like all forms of collectivism, fascism is an ideology of the Left. Generally, those on the Left support continuing the lockdowns and COVID rules while those on the Right favor freedom and individual choice. These Left versus Right competing narratives are clearly distinguishable on the basis of philosophy and ideology.
Labels continually prove to be unavoidable in political discourse because they are both a necessity and a weapon.
When correctly defined instead of being avoided, political labels can become a powerful weapon for the Right and against fascism given fascism’s exclusive association with the Left.
Understanding the power of labels, the Left has invented labels like “COVID deniers,” and “COVID truthers,” and “far right” and “racist” and “conspiracy theorist,” and “fascist,” to successfully associate these pejoratives with the Right. That success can be measured in the number of those on the Right who distance themselves from their own political identity – something the Left never does.
Appreciating the power of the Left-Right polarity is not always easy, given the fictional “political spectrum” that traps so many in an unsolvable dilemma. But it is essential that those who see themselves on the Right bear that label proudly. After all, it is only on the Right that freedom is to be found.
In contrast, it is only on the Left that fascism is found. But given fascism’s demonstrated sordid history and ideology it has become a propaganda tactic of the Left to falsely associate fascism with the Right. But it just isn’t so.
When it comes to competing narratives, the Left only works hard trying to eliminate – not debate – any narrative that’s Just Right.
