The Psychology of Fascism

In the 1930's a noted Psychologist and author Wilhelm Reich wrote a book entitled "The Mass Psychology of Fascism." It was written at a time when Fascism was becoming prominent in Europe and America and would later result in the mass atrocities of the holocaust and Nazi Germany. Reich postulates a correlation between sexual repression in the culture and the racial hatred, xenophobia and paranoia that made the atrocities possible. I read Reich's work on Orgone energy years ago and happened on the Mass Psychology work about the same time. I'd be curious to see if others think that his work is appropriate to our current situation and how dysfunctional our families and our society seem to have become.

Why take it from second hand source, when you can go to the original material itself?

It's not too long, and gives you an insight into *what* fascism actually is. You'd be quite surprised.

Also noteworthy, the book of the man himself -> http://www.greatwar.nl/books/meinkampf/meinkampf.pdf

I've been giving these books a fair read. If you want to gain new perspective, you should definitely take a look.
