The word meaning ‘fascist’ or ‘fascism’ derives from “The term fascismo [which] is derived from the Latin word fasces.[14] The fasces, which consisted of a bundle of rods that were tied around an axe,[15] was an ancient Roman symbol of the authority of the civic magistrate.[16] They were carried by his lictors and could be used for corporal and capital punishment at his command.[17][18] The word fascismo also relates to political organizations in Italy known as fasci, groups similar to guilds or syndicates”.

As far as the definition goes, the above cannot be much improved on. However, there is much to be desired when it comes to the objective meaning of the words ‘fascist’ and ‘fascism’. What we have today is an amalgam of uses of the word by Hitler’s and Stalin’s followers, not to forget the obscenity it is regarded as by the majority of those who identify themselves as Jews.

I will attempt to throw a clearer perspective on the uses the word may be put to, which means that I may (for some) digress rather far from the pejorative meaning the word has gathered about itself and is exclusively held to today.

To begin: a bundle of fasces in old mythology does not constitute just a bundle of sticks or rods, but

“….Both the wood and the edible nuts of the hazel have played important roles in Irish and Welsh traditions. Hazel leaves and nuts are found in early British burial mounds and shaft-wells, especially at Ashill, Norfolk. The place-name story for Fordruim, an early name for Tara, describes it as a pleasant hazel wood. In the ogham alphabet of early Ireland, the letter C was represented by hazel [OIr. coll]. According to Robert Graves's… research, it also represented the ninth month on the Old Irish calendar, 6 August to 2 September. Initiate members of the Fianna had to defend themselves armed only with a hazel stick and a shield; yet in the Fenian legends the hazel without leaves was thought evil, dripping poisonous milk, and the home of vultures. Thought a fairy tree in both Ireland and Wales, wood from the hazel was sacred to poets and was thus a taboo fuel on any hearth. Heralds carried hazel wands as badges of office. Witches' wands    are often made of hazel, as are divining rods, used to find underground water. In Cornwall the hazel was used in the millpreve, the magical adder stones. In Wales a twig of hazel would be given to a rejected lover.”

There is a lot more, but the above is enough to prove that we are neither engaged in an idle chat or that the hazel need carry blood drawn by fascists for all ages to come.

Fasces are also faggots women and children bring home from the wood and field to burn in the fireplace . While using hazel wood as firewood transgresses against poets, hazel sticks for burning have, nevertheless, become symbols for the home, hearth, and the unit of family and community. There is no echo in the word ‘hazel’ of the sound that goes “nazi”. Perhaps if the era of materialist acquisition and consumption when let off the leash of lent had not been sent to the races as if lent resulted in the hunger of starving greyhounds, there would be no tracks running to Auschwitz.

And guess who just let the thugs loose again, while pretending to work on behalf of ‘freedom’ and ‘democracy’?

Why, it’s the land of the free ‘democrats’, where Amrican fascists continue to turn violence outward for export when things fall apart inward and the centre cannot be held by a man who has never heard of sacrificial ‘harisma’, said to be a name for a game of ‘golf’ for the Amrican Olympian class.

Except for one thing: Amricans no longer use either hazel rods or fascia rods, but have replaced them with tazer darts, some coming with as much as an 80,000 volt charge: .

The Amrican movie industry, long used to persuading the Amrican public about how consuming goods and ripping the heart out of planet Earth is the ‘progressive’ way that leads to a fascist peace sans communities and nations, but on the lamb with the corporate world is for all to be enjoyed through the Amrican way of controlling the Network of Dependencies: . And, yes, the Earth is flat, because once Amrica and its Allies come to the edge of it (where we are today), we keep on marching, first, the Moon, then Mars, then Venus, and then we go far beyond where we come from and reach the Throne of God.

This is where things become sticky for Amrican fascists, because neither God nor the hominids, He is presumed to have created are amused by the games played by Amrican Olymps. Even Amrican atheists are questioning how the Death of God—it seems only yesterday—was so soon replaced by a name written ‘Obam’, and disbelief in him results in a charge of ‘terrorist’—just as not that long ago it was ‘heretic’?
