Finished reading Frankenstein yesterday. It hasn't aged that well, but the concept is still awesome even if the execution is sometimes lacking.

Finally finished reading Candide for English class. Well, that was a very odd and excessively disturbing experience.

I don't think it's aged a bit, tbh. An unchallenged masterpiece of literature.

I checked out a book on fascism from my school library. Thought it would be interesting to read given the recent election. I was right.

"The new fascism opposes communism, but communism has ceased to be a threat... Socialism, Soviet style, is dead, and consequently anticapitalism is sure to come to the fore among the extreme Right, even though they lack an alternative socioeconomic program. They have opposed all along liberal capitalism, free trade, and multinational corporations, and 'Wall Street,' but they have never made clear what alternative they would offer."

"There is now a dearth of truly new political ideas. It is nearly impossible to advocate a fascist dictatorship, and as a result, the neofascists have their work cut out for them. But ideological vagueness also has certain advantages. The neofascists' main hope is to appear as the unsullied alternative to the breakdown of the old liberal-democratic system... In these circumstances it is best if the neofascists do not define their aims too closely."

"It may be enough for the neofascists to appear as the party of order, of national regeneration, and of the defense of their country against rapacious or parasitic aliens... Seventy years ago the Nazis and the Italian Fascists had very short programs, and hardly anyone paid attention to them. But their absence did not significantly impede their political progress."

Sound like anyone you know?
