“Even though these far-right parties publicly disavow Nazism and sometimes claim they are merely defending ‘Judeo-Christian’, liberal or Enlightenment values, it is worth bearing in mind Henry Wallace’s warning that: “The symptoms of fascist thinking are coloured by environment and adapted to immediate circumstances. But always and everywhere they can be identified by their appeal to prejudice and by the desire to play upon the fears and vanities of different groups in order to gain power.” Even outside of extremist groups and parties, fascism’s legacy impacts on present day mainstream political debates.”
