Today's Buggy Topic Is . . .
. . . found at Economist's View, in a thread started by Prof. Thoma --- the manager of that web site --- linking to a lengthy commentary on fascism by Professor Daniel Little, a philosopher at the University of Michigan. Prof bug has comments extensively in the past on both European fascism and its varieties that emerged after WWI and flourished in most of Europe in the 1930s and during WWI, not to forget its ongoing influences after 1945 . . . right down to the present. Which means Saddam Hussein's Iraq, the clerical fascist regime in Iran (now under siege), and in radical Islamist circles found all over the Islamic world.
. . . here for Professor Little's stimulating remarks, followed by prof bug's.
