    No one worries about organisations being identified as reactionary.

    Why throw this diversion up?

    I do not support calling the any organisation in Australia Fascist except for white power groups and rightwing elements in the Liberal party and some church associated political groups.

    I do not support calling other organisations fascists, zombies, stooges or clowns. Although I apply all these labels to those who manufacture them – plus more.

    It is not up to other people to even address diatribes such as that – just expose them for what they are.

    A better definition of ‘fascism’ would be: ‘the political movement founded by Benito Mussolini around 1914, and other similar political movements’.

    You wrote earlier that ‘you don’t defeat capitalism with accommodationist policies’.

    Please note that those are your exact words, with no paraphrasing by me.

    Now, possibly on reflection you may decide that the meaning you intended when you wrote that could be better expressed in other words. I could understand that.

    But looking at the words you used, if they do adequately capture your intended meaning, then I wonder whether you meant that ‘you don’t defeat capitalism with accommodationist policies because you defeat it with different policies’. That seems the most natural interpretation to me, which is why I’m wondering which different policies you might have had in mind. If you didn’t mean that, perhaps you meant ‘you don’t defeat capitalism with accommodationist policies because you don’t defeat capitalism with policies at all’, but in that case I would wonder why you singled out accommodationist policies for specific mention. Maybe you had some other meaning, different from both of those, that I’m failing to grasp. Your more recent comments don’t clarify the point.
