"Promoting Fascism as spirituality" award

The quote from the liberal site that wins the "Promoting Fascism as spirituality" award in 2009:

"The awakening of social consciousness has always been resisted by the ego. The ego is attached to it’s construct of reality which is based on it’s identity as separate from all others. Resistance to universal health care as a human right is the ego asserting its disconnection from the whole. The rest of the debate is just smoke, mirrors and projection."

Compare and contrast this with the doctrine of fascism exposed by Benito Mussolini:

"The man of Fascism is an individual who is nation and fatherland, which is a moral law, binding together individuals and the generations into a tradition and a mission, suppressing the instinct for a life enclosed within the brief round of pleasure in order to restore within duty a higher life free from the limits of time and space: a life in which the individual, through the denial of himself, through the sacrifice of his own private interests, through death itself, realizes that completely spiritual existence in which his value as a man lies."

"Fascism is a religious conception in which man is seen in his immanent relationship with a superior law and with an objective Will that transcends the particular individual and raises him to conscious membership of a spiritual society."
"..for the Fascist, everything is in the State, and nothing human or spiritual exists, much less has value,-outside the State. In this sense Fascism is totalitarian, and the Fascist State, the synthesis and unity of all values, interprets, develops and gives strength to the whole life of the people."

"The Fascist State, the highest and most powerful form of personality, is a force, but a spiritual force, which takes over all the forms of the moral and intellectual life of man. It cannot therefore confine itself simply to the functions of order and supervision as Liberalism [Mussolini is discussing classical liberalism, which is a mixture of today's libertarian and conservative ideologies in America] desired. It is not simply a mechanism which limits the sphere of the supposed liberties of the individual. It is the form, the inner standard and the discipline of the whole person; it saturates the will as well as the intelligence. Its principle, the central inspiration of the human personality living in the civil community, pierces into the depths and makes its home in the heart of the man of action as well as of the thinker, of the artist as well as of the scientist: it is the soul of the soul."

"Fascism, in short, is not only the giver of laws and the founder of institutions, but the educator and promoter of spiritual life. It wants to remake, not the forms of human life, but its content, man, character, faith. And to this end it requires discipline and authority that can enter into the spirits of men and there govern unopposed. Its sign, therefore, is the Lictors’ rods, the symbol of unity, of strength and justice."

In essence, today's liberalism and progressivism are practically indistinguishable from the classical fascism of Benito Mussolini. Way to go, comrades.
