Fash revolution timeline:
1) economic problems leave a large chunk of people with food and housing insecurity
2) government handles it ineptly
3) the working class poor riot, the petty bourgeoisie turn fash and recruit bigots to fight for them
4) open streetfighting starts

5) Fash recruitment leans on reactionary “return to better times” rhetoric and bigoted rhetoric to keep growing newly poor petty bourgeoisie and bigot numbers
6) Economic instability worsens
7) Open streetfighting intensifies, police stop interfering

- - you are here - -

8) First killings start. Fash blame antifa, call them thugs, talk about restoring law & order. Media works with fash.
9) Fash stage an event like a big state building burning or a political leader assassination to say “look, the regular government cant handle these antifa”

10) Fash numbers begin growing with regular people who are scared and see fash promising strength and peace.
11) Kidnapping and murder of political enemies goes unchecked. Fash gain control of police.
12) Fash either take over or square off against military and win. Gov falls.
Read Rise and Fall of the Third Reich. Read Shock Doctrine. Whether the economic catastrophe, media takeover, and fash leadership come to power organically or through foreign interference, it always follows similar steps.
