Nationalism and Fascism
The Extreme Right
These Romantic writers defined nation in terms of common language, common history, common customs, and a loyalty to a homeland. This cultural nationalism would later become transformed into a political creed that ideologically asserted the unique spirit of belonging together, and the corporate nature of the polity where individuals worked together as a cultural unit and constituted a force capable of changing world history.
The volkgeist – embodies the national spirit, food, dress, language
This process has continued into the 20th and 21st centuries.
Nationalism is the key to all the other components of this ideology.
(The Nazis are Fascists who took racism to an extreme. Most Fascists were fanatics but not as fanatical as the German variety of Fascism)
