Se vorbeste mult de riscul fascismului politic in Europa actuala, cu Ungaria figurand pe lista suspectilor. Personal cred ca tonul discutiei este un pic cam dramatic, insa in loc de comentarii trimit la recenzia facuta de mine la ultima carte despre fascismul european (Dylan Riley: The Civic Foundations of Fascism in Europe: Italy, Spain, and Romania,
1870–1945. (Baltimore: Johns Hopkins University Press, 2010. Pp. 258. $55.00.).

fascism in italy, romania and spain
The main argument advanced in the book is that associational development
in the context of failed hegemonic politics may lead to fascism rather than to
mass-based liberal democracy. More speciﬁcally, it is argued that the rise of
fascism is facilitated in a political environment where dominant liberal
social elites of the liberal democratic order reduce politics to a set of conﬂicts
among largely incompatible interest groups, instead of deﬁning politics in
terms of a hegemonic national project. In turn, this failure of liberal elites to
establish their political hegemony reduces rather than strengthens the
capacity of the progressive counterhegemonic nonelites to democratize the
polity. The ensuing crisis of politics creates opportunities for the antipolitical
and antiliberal forces of fascism to appropriate successfully civil society infra-
structures and ideologies in order to terminate the liberal democratic order.
