Abstract

The rise of the political right-wings parties and movements, feared by several intellectuals as a risk of a new fascism and of a crisis of liberalism in Italy, is actually a consequence of a long -lasting “organic crisis”. The established ruling classes, struggling with a strong internal competition and the conse-quences of the Great Convergence, are unable to exercise a consistent direction on the society. The consequence was the populist revolt of the middle classes, who - impoverished and frustrated - seek new political references and find them in movements or leaders who are perceived as not compromised with the establishment and who know how to speak the language of immediacy. More than in the face of a fascistization processes, however, we are in the presence of a dynamic of concentration of power that on the ashes of modern democracy is experiencing new postmodern forms of bonapartism. And which is if anything the consequence of the lack of strategic alternatives to an absolute liberalism that occupies the whole political field. The real danger of fascism comes today, instead, from a possible fascistization of international relations, because the West tries to resolve once and for all the colonial question by making it a conflict of civilization that takes into account the total war and the consequent total mobilization of the nations involved.
