Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Idly wondered, off and on, if the acceptance of Fascism didn't spring from the experience of World War I along the lines of:

BTW,Racism is not wedded to Fascism.  In France, for example, there were people who were ardent Fascists and actively subverted the Nazi racial actions.
