CISSM Forum | "Understanding Radical Evil: Communism, Fascism, and Some Lessons of the Twentieth Century" | Vladimir Tismaneanu

Description:
Communism and Fascism represent revolutionary projects, inherently and irredeemably hostile to liberal values. Both have used manipulative methods to arouse, to galvanize mass movements committed to an apocalyptic break with an execrated status quo. Both are secular religions obsessed with transcending the existing human condition in favor an anthropological revolution. Both are millenarianisms announcing the advent of the New Man. A comparison between Communism and Fascism helps us understand better the nature, goals, and consequences of such movements. They should be regarded as parts of an unfinished century of revolutionary hubris. {Will appear in FYI on Nov 14, 2013
