Fascist Fantasies/Maginot Line

Instead of debating who is a fascist and where that construct of fancy might be revisiting its ghostly presence like one of Mr. Browning’s audience of spectres from an other world and time, academics should be planning how the West might correct the legal and economic imbalances that have inspired this debate.

Fearing what’s obvious
We seek complexity
Avoiding directness
We circumlocute painlessly.

So more is forgotten
Little is learned
And the task grows more daunting.
