Ur-fascism is a term that describes the many historical forms of fascism.Umberto listed 14 basic properties of fascist ideology. Eco lived through fascism and correctly identifies major elements. Many aspects run parallel with things happening in the US and other parts of the world today. One of the main aspects that contribute to fascism is followers feel humiliated by the ostentatious wealth and force of enemies. The enemies come from different originalities and backgrounds than Americans. Our government is broken and it’s seems that it gets worse and worse by the day.The nation has failed to properly fund the government. Another characteristic of Ur-Fascism expressed in today’s society is that we live to struggle. Life is constant warfare everyday .We are always surrounded by many army forces.
