Interesting breakdown by social class:

In confronting the rise of authoritarian far-right populism, Marxists should really 
re-think the old Trotskyist shibboleths about fascism being a primarily petit-bourgeois 
or "Bonapartist" phenomenon.  It's pretty clear that the new far-right has a 
substantial proletarian base.


Well, I think fascism is a movement not a "authoritarian far-right
populist" party and certainly not just some pieces of paper in a ballot box in Brandenburg. Marxian social class is not a sociological category: "the proletariat" is not just 'the workers" who as individuals are not immune to fascism, let alone to "authoritarian far-right populism".

JA
