I occasionally find myself having to explain that fascism is not quite an ideology as we ordinarily understand it. It doesn't have a defining governing policy, or economic policy, or foreign policy. It has, indeed, a hostility to specific programmatic commitments, being defined instead in its attitude of nationalism, belligerence, and naked will-to-power. Mussolini demonstrated this succinctly when he was asked if he would answer the questions of journalists from Il Mondo.
The democrats of Il Mondo want to know our programme?
It is to break the bones of the democrats of Il Mondo.
As a commentator I know once said:
I am enlightened enough to reject all forms of self-delusion. And when ideology is transcended, only will remains.
