Is Fascism Debatable?

Is Fascism Debatable?

The Absurdity Of Providing Fascism A Platform Spits In The Face Of The Entire WWII Generation and Their Memory

The topic of physical altercation between fascistic and anti-fascistic forces has been a highlight in recent news. The debate comes after a leader of the White Nationalist/White Supremacist movement, disguised as the pseudonym "Alt-Right Movement", was punched in the face several times; most notably on January 20th, 2017 during the Inauguration protests. The question is not whether or not it is okay to assault someone who thinks differently than yourself; it is a question of whether or not it is justifiable to allow hostile ideas such as supremacist and nationalist ideals (that have driven the world into a world war) to freely be expressed as if those horrors of war had not existed. It is even arguable more so against the American embodiment of these fascistic forces given we also fought a Civil War to end the white supremacist society solidified in the southern states. The rationality behind their existence is based purely on belief, nothing else.

Racial supremacy and nationalistic sentiments are not based on any form of reality. Racial supremacy is entirely an illusory hallucination and delusional construct. Science has long proven that the human species of all races are connected via the genus of Homo-sapiens-sapiens. Nationalistic constructs are purely of the arbitrary fictitious notion that a certain geographical location provides a superiority given at birth to those lucky enough to be born in that geographical region. Both ideals have no basis in the objective physical world; they exist solely as thoughts in the human mind.

The physical effects of beliefs of fascism and Nazism which are ideas that heavily utilized supremacy and nationalism, on the other hand; still exists in living memory for many. The historical preservation of the effects of these philosophies are quite extensive, they did not just magically disappear from society. It is rather amnesiac to think the modern situation is a debate of ideas and freedom of speech. The same philosophies that declared war on humanity has never ended that war. And it is rather ignorant for people to keep acting like fascism and Nazism are neutralist ideas only now being tried and implemented deserving of discussion.


Those sympathetic to the white nationalist/supremacist movements like to term those who oppose them as "snowflakes". A very ironic connotation given that winter weather was largely responsible for the defeat of Nazi forces in the eastern front during the Second World War; which gave the Soviets an upper hand in facilitating Nazi retreat on the eastern front and their eventual defeat in Berlin. If the "Alt-Right" uses an illogical derogatory term like "snowflakes" as an attempted insult demonstrates their immaturity and plan ignorance of reality. The anti-logic and false knowledge they utilize in their belief system has to be truly assessed as to the legitimacy of its existence. It is not some new fresh idea; it is a backwards, obsolete thought process that has repeatedly veered its face in history, with catastrophes and atrocities following shortly after. The 21st-century cannot accept such anti-knowledge if our species is to survive.

10 Things You Need To Know If You Are Going To The March For Life For The First Time

How to prepare, everything you should bring, and what you can expect

I went to the March for Life for the first time last year, and I have been excited about this year's march basically since I left last year's march. The March for Life is a pro-life march in Washington, DC. Along with the march, there is also a series of speakers in the morning. It changed my life and was hands down one of the best events I have ever attended and been a part of. If you are going this year for the first time, I would love to share some tips and information with you, so that you can make the most of the day and know some of what to expect! I understand that everyone's experience may not be the same of mine, but this is what I experienced, and some things I would have appreciated knowing before I went.

You need to dress warm.

When I say warm, I mean warm. You are going to be outside all day. Bundle up until you think you are dressed warm enough, then add a few more layers. I was not dressed warm enough on my first trip to any degree. The last thing you want is to be more focused on how cold you are than on what you are there for. I recommend a few pairs of socks, gloves, a hat, and hand and foot warmers. Thankfully, the weather is looking pretty decent for this year!

You will be walking A LOT.

You will definitely walk a few miles that day. Wear clothes and shoes that are comfortable. Eat a big, nutritious breakfast and get a good night's sleep the night before. You will need it!

There will be a ton of people there.

Last year there were 800,000 people in attendance. It is incredible to spend a day with so many people with the same beliefs and desires as you. Everyone there is beyond friendly and kind.

There may be some people there that are against you, but they are few and far between.

During my experience at the march last year, we encountered a few people who were against us. But those few people take no stance to our 800,000 and Jesus. Don't be worried.

There are a few things you don't want to forget to take with you.

I would recommend bringing:

A bottle of water

Tissues

Money

Chap stick

You are going to learn a lot.

I learned a lot, especially from the speakers, about the abortion industry, about choosing life, and about what I could do to help. There were so many important, difficult, and inspiring things said that I actually went home and re-watched all of the speeches online so that I could better comprehend things, and so that I could write down what stood out to me the most.

God is there.

The speakers fearlessly talk about Jesus and share the good news. The Holy Spirit is so present. Complete strangers show you God's love.

This will be one of the most peaceful things you will ever be a part of.

I still can't comprehend the peace that I experienced at the march. It is hard to believe that a crowd of 800,000 people in the heart of Washington, DC can be even remotely peaceful, but let me be the first to tell you that the peace that only the Lord can give is so ever present.

It will change your life.

The March for Life changed my life. I have so much more drive and desire to do my part in ending the abortion industry, inspiring others to choose life, and praying for all of the babies whose innocent lives have been taken. I am much more confident in sharing my beliefs and standing for life.

I am so glad that you are going to the march, because I just know it is going to be an amazing experience for you. See you there!

A New Day Is On The Horizon

Time really is up.

If you missed the Golden Globes, then you missed one of the most epic thank you speeches ever given by none other than Oprah.

I think she said it best when she states, "A new day is on the horizon." This is a powerful speech to me because it doesn't attack men like so many do. She instead is talking about how the time is up on looking past all of the corruption in the world today and uniting and overcoming as a whole.

If this issue is ever going to truly be gone, men and women have to work together to end it. Oprah's speech hopefully lit a fire in many women and men all over the country to begin a new day and work to end the pain holding in secrets of hurt and struggle many have had to deal with all these years. Hopefully, our country can be new and work together.
