The fascism virus – (Luiz Felipe Pondé) – Folha de SP/08 – Adpt

The “think for the collective” worships bureaucracies. These words are spoken against whom is freer than the “political consciousness” likes. The collective spirit hates freedom, and freedom isn’t necessarily beautiful. This feeling has been a philosophical consciousness before fascism. Today I know, as once said the German philosopher Peter Sloterdijk: “Make no mistake, no one won the fascism”. And why? The fascism is embodied in the relationship between the modern state and attempts at “political construction of right living and social welfare”. So its close with the advertisement for “conscientization of the masses”.
An example of fascism is the constraint of language by the “politically correct”. Fascism isn’t a hallmark of Mussolini, Fidel Castro, Stalin or Hitler. This is the version of totalitarianism. Fascism is a feature of modern society in “the way to build a better world” through the state machine and the policies that shape behavior. Let me explain: when the collective act morally, it’s always a fascism. No matter if its representatives are directly elected or imposed by force. The growing bureaucracy of the modern state seems to want to control every detail of life, spreading the “good”. We do not know what this “good” is, so we must live with a different practice of “it”. Freedom disappears when the state becomes a “moral agent”. The sum of it leads to control of behavior. There’s always an explosive relationship between the intention of social effectiveness and fascist risk. When politics becomes moral, we are facing this risk. The rule comes into life at the speed of light. The next step is to enter into our soul, our bed, our love, our faith, our mouth. The government shouldn’t make “ethical” pamphlets. Alexis de Tocqueville in his masterful book “Democracy in America”, witch is an antidote to blind faith in democracy, draws attention to the “details of freedom”. We advocate more freedom when we prevent the government from the daily people life (family, school, church, feelings, virtues and vices) than when we define “Freedom” in big ideas or policies.
The more “blind” is the policy for the details of life, the less harmful it is. The tendency toward “tyranny of the details” is typical of the democratic State because it finds a legitimate representative of the people (mostly elected), so it thinks it should “define” the daily one. Their mode of legitimation produces its invisible form of tyranny. The craze for health, for the common good, equality, the new, the social construction of healthy life habits, hatred to religion (competitor of the modern state for the education of souls) are ancestral passions of fascism.
Typical of the fascist mind is its love for the puritan “humanity right” while detests the promiscuous diversity of human beings. Hence their vocation to the idea of “health science and politics of life”: elimination of habits “unreasonable”, creating “behaviors that add value political, scientific and social”. The imperative to “be healthy” can turn sick a person. In democracy, fascism can be invisible as a virus. Want an example of contamination? Vote a law: “Even at home you can’t smoke”. After all, how are the lungs of neighbors? How about a campaign in schools for children denounce their parents smoke?
