Eternal Fascism: Fourteen Ways of Looking at a Blackshirt - Umberto Eco

In spite of some fuzziness regarding the difference between various historical forms of fascism, I think it is possible to outline a list of features that are typical of what I would like to call Ur-Fascism, or Eternal Fascism. These features cannot be organized into a system; many of them contradict each other, and are also typical of other kinds of despotism or fanaticism.

The specificity of the Holocaust requires a much more determinate mediation in order even to approach its understanding.
