The methods employed by fascist and soviet dictators were similar, and both murdered millions of their own citizens.
I learned so much that had been missing from my other history books about the period 1919 start of fascism up until the present. Creating Fascist Movements examines the cultural, societal, political and ideological origins of fascism in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, culminating in the aftermath of World War One, which show Italy and Germany as young advanced industrial countries and new to mass democratic politics, harbouring deep resentments to perceived betrayals by the liberal elites during the war, anger towards an influx of non-assimilating immigrants and ethnic minorities, a sense of decline and decay of a once vibrant and superior culture and community, and a terrible fear of succumbing to a communist or socialist revolution under the auspices of Russian Bolshevism.
Robert O Paxton is considered one of the leading experts in the field. The Anatomy of Fascism was recommended to me as being the perfect modern introductory text to ground oneself in what comprises fascism both as it existed and as it survives today—and Paxton proved to deliver the goods nigh-on perfectly in every way. Although Paxton leaves open some avenues for interpretation, he implies that the only two political regimes sufficiently realized to be considered fascist are Fascist Italy and Nazi Germany.
However, flush with the ecstasies of victory from the ANATOMÍA DEL FASCISMO warmongering, Paxton's analysis draws out the devolution into a frenzied radicalism in the case of Germany under the fervent, demonic shift into the top gear of Total War, as well as the Italian entropy as Mussolini, proven a hollow leader, presides despondently over a fascism that melts away once the King has the Duce removed from power and the authoritarian right put in charge of a nation under siege.

These groups often formed countervailing forces within the early moments as they developed into the ruling party, and often challenged the leadership directly.
It is a feeling of resentment and the desire to impede or destroy the resented group.
Paxton's analysis is buttressed by a sure command of his subject.
I call them "mobilizing passions": - a sense of overwhelming crisis beyond the reach of any traditional solutions; - the primacy of the group, toward which one has duties superior to every right, whether individual or universal, and the subordination of the individual to it; - the belief that one's group is a victim, a sentiment that justifies any action, without legal or moral limits, against its enemies, both internal and external; - dread of the group's decline under the corrosive effects of individualistic liberalism, class conflict and alien influences; - the need for closer integration of a purer community, by consent of possible, or by exclusionary violence if necessary; - the need for authority by natural chiefs always male , culminating in a national chieftain who alone is capable of incarnating the group's historical destiny; - the superiority of the leader's instincts over abstract and universal reason; - the beauty of violence and the efficacy of will, when they are devoted to the group's success; - the right of the chosen people to dominate others without restraint from any kind of human or divine law, right being decided by the sole criterion of the group's prowess within a Darwinian struggle.
