Communism with private property

is a fair definition of fascism.

Existed in the US south approx. 1876-1965.

No pretense of equal application of the law and that generally applied to poor whites as well, but to a lesser degree. Low social mobility, poor education and health status for most.

Of course there are still people steamed about the durn Feds coming in and disturbing that utopia.

Seems beyond the imagination of many here that it might not turn out so well after all.

Re: Communism with private property

The New Deal farm program benefits flowed primarily to the small landowning class- as they always do.

They arranged for Dixiecrat senators to remain in place for decades-gaining seniority. Their purpose was to filibuster any civil rights legislation and keep the Yankees sending goodies down.

When Johnson blocked all attempts to seize the seditionist oligarchs’ estancias, that outcome was inevitable.

Slaveholders had already taken all the good land- you can’t compete with people who own people.

Re: Communism with private property

In You Know Who’s fascist economy, The Party did receive a lot of support from small businessmen and farmers. However the regime actually favored well connected cartels and monopolies.

Average worker pay rose 19% ‘33-‘39. Almost entirely the product of longer hours. The average wage stayed near the depression lows.

An oligarch’s paradise.

Farm income rose, due to the autarkic practices of severely limiting imports.

That’s the rub I see for Agro-Nazis- the US runs a large net Ag surplus.

Re: Communism with private property

When you say "the Party" do you mean Robert Byrd Democrats?  Up until the late 1980`s is was "Brazil who?", USSR/satellites disastrous agriculture, western Europe still remembering famine of WWII took care of their farmers planting Tulips if necessary to keep their prices sustainable,   And in China Mama San was still dumping the pee pot on the family`s half acre corn field.  

The US in that period raised hogs on pasture,  5 pigs/sow, hogs fattened on ear corn and buttermilk, 110 BPA was the best corn yield in the neighborhood.  Up until 1990 we didn`t have world production agricultural competition to speak of, the problem was finding customers with the money to buy our products.

Song of the South

Song, song, song of the south
Sweet potato pie and shut my mouth
Gone, gone with the wind
There ain't nobody looking back again
Well...
Song, song of the south
(Sweet potato pie and shut my mouth)
Gone, gone with the wind
There ain't nobody looking back again
Cotton on the roadside, cotton in the ditch
We all picked the cotton but we never got rich
Daddy was a veteran, a southern democrat
They ought to get a rich man to vote like that
(Sing it)
Song, song of the south
(Sweet potato pie and I shut my mouth)
Gone, gone with the wind
There ain't nobody looking back again, yee-hoo
Well, somebody told us Wall Street fell
But we were so poor that we couldn't tell
Cotton was short and the weeds were tall
But Mr. Roosevelt's gonna save us all
Well, momma got sick and daddy got down
The county got the farm and they moved to town
Papa got a job with the TVA
He bought a washing machine and then a Chevrolet
Yes he did, yes he did, yes he did, yes he did, yes he did
And it makes you feel good
You get together, and you get out in the cotton field and you get to hum, and you get to sing and then you feel so good
Call moonshine
(Everybody, come on now)
(Go sing)
Song, song of the south
(Sweet potato pie and shut my mouth)
Gone, gone with the wind
There ain't nobody looking back again
Song, song of the south
Sweet potato pie and I shut my mouth
Gone, gone with the wind
There ain't nobody looking back, one more
Song, song of the south
Sweet potato pie and I shut my mouth
Gone, gone with the wind
There ain't nobody looking back again

Re: Communism with private property

BA, it's just noxzi justifying his advocation of modern fascism by saying some people long dead did unkind things.   Dull.  He should just say in his opinion Mussolini had it right.
