Fascism and A Thread of Grace

Mary Doria Russell's book, A Thread of Grace, while it deals with the Nazi occupation of Italy, does a good job of revealing the appeal of fascism and the conditions that allow it take root.  How are those conditions present in America today?  That's an interesting question.

Re: Fascism and A Thread of Grace

Interesting.

 

Does she offer any opinion about whether fascism might ever be the best form of government for a given society at a given moment in history?  That question interests me.  Since almost everything said about fascism today is totally negative, one is left with the question why the people chose it or accepted it in the first place, and whether it might have had significant virtues as well as the detriments which are so defining of facism today.
