I do not believe that Ur-fascism does still exists in our world today. After reading all the items that define Ur-fascism I can only think of differences between it and our country today. For example in traditionalism “the rejection of the modern world was disguised as a rebuttal of the capitalistic way of life.” This is nothing like our country which is nearly obsessed with capitalism. But on another thought Elitism “Every citizen belongs to the best people of the world.” Americans typically do believe that they are better than citizens of other countries. America as a whole even has an attitude of being better than other countries. Also individual or social frustration could also apply to our world. In today’s world we can see the gap between the lower class, middle class, and upper class continue to get larger as time progresses. So I guess I would say that in some ways our world could be similar to Ur-fascism but in other ways it does not relate.
