I'm generally leery of articles that thoroughly "misdiagnose" fascism......

> paranoia, and personal insecurity

Can easily be used to describe antifa

> Protocols of the Elders of Zion spurred Fascism

Absolute nonsense

> Adolf Hitler to call out the "conspiracy" as a reason to claim power, murder innocents and carry out genocide.

Really? We can't think of any cataclysmic material disaster that molded and radicalized entire generations of people to reshape their existence? We just gonna go "Hitler read a book and got mad and everyone did what he said?"

> Fascist movements are about insecure men being terrified of losing power and embracing shows of strength and cruelty in order to hide their own insecurities.

"Know how I know you're gay? Cause you lift all day and have a jacked up F150 bro!"

> Fascists aren't actually competent. They're incredibly incompetent and insecure. They demand worship from their followers and pit them against one another in contests of love and devotion.

"Incompetent" is definitely how I would describe the incredibly quick creation and construction of mechanized and efficient industries to liquidate entire masses of people. The Gestapo were, at best, a bunch of bumbling goons comparable to the Three Stooges.

> It creates stability

Germany from 1918 to 1944 was the shining example of stability.

> They believed shadowy cabals were trying to end slavery,

Ah, yes, Lincoln's "Deep State" that was secretly planning an end to slavery.

I don't really have an opinion on the rest.
