During the nineteenth century, anarchism was a significant component ofa broad but growing socialist movement. What they wanted was their own dictatorship. Today, of course, the German and French Marxists are deeply mortified that their rivals have supplanted them. It was originally propagated by the sword, and ever since, its votaries have been subject, above the people of all other creeds, to this form of madness. Thus, representative democracy is the better solution. The “radical” wings of the fascist movement that wanted to challenge old elites more directly were either frustrated, as in Italy, or suppressed, as in Germany.

The CWM is therefore another instrument in the hands of the Liberals to undermine the Social Reign of Our Lord. Cerebral, critical, and committed, the point of view found in its pages is as unique as it is formidable. Fascism thus appears to be ‘anti-philosophy’ – it is anti-rational, anti-liberal, anti-conservative, anti-capitalist, anti-bourgeois, anti-communist and so on. Keynes (1883–1946) and, more broadly, to a range of economic policies that have been influenced by these theories.
