This is the first person account reading of Part II of Varieties of Fascism by Professor Eugen Weber. Reading 7A is an excerpt from one of the two books written by the founder of the Rexist movement Jean Denis. True, Leon Degrelle would be quick to dominate and lead the Rexists, but he was not the initial architect. In this work, Jean Denis lays out the proto-typical fascist complaint of broken parliamentarism, runaway individualism, and the need for "movements" and not "parties". While not a particularly unique work it is still a prime example of the basic motivational rhetoric common to all fascist movements of that time, and in some cases still today. One thing is for sure, however, and that is that Jean Denis appears to be extremely camera shy, attempts at finding authenticated pictures of the man have proven fruitless.
In 1964, the world approached the twentieth anniversary of the end of the Second World War. Eugen Weber, a Romanian born, French-educated, British Veteran, and now American professor, sat down to take in the impact of socialism, fascism, and national socialism on the 20th-century world. Having served with the British during the Second World War, Eugen Weber was no stranger to the violent upheaval these ideologies had, and indeed are having.
In the Narrator's opinion, the compilation of this work is invaluable in a current atmosphere of domestic ideological cleavings. Writing nineteen years after the Second World War, a war which Professor Weber fought in, this work has topical adjacency to the real physical manifestations of such phenomena. Additionally, written in the early sixties, the work does not suffer the estrangement and misdefinition of the terms it seeks to educate on.
