  11. “…people who recklessly fling… ‘Fascist’ in every direction attach…an emotional significance to it. By ‘Fascism’ they mean…something cruel, unscrupulous, arrogant, obscurantist, anti-liberal and anti-working-class, except for the relatively small number of Fascist sympathizers…Fascism is also a political and economic system. Why, then, cannot we have a clear and generally accepted definition of it? … it is impossible to define Fascism satisfactorily without making admissions which neither the Fascists themselves, nor the Conservatives, nor Socialists of any colour, are willing to make. All one can do for the moment is to use the word with a certain amount of circumspection and not, as is usually done, degrade it to the level of a swearword. A Quote by George Orwell
