Furthermore, the representative fascist societies, UsefulNotes/FascistItaly and UsefulNotes/NaziGermany came into power in developed industrialized economies where liberal institutions and traditions preexisted the rise to fascism, whereas the historical communist nations and Marxist states came to power in backwards, feudal, agrarian and/or semi-industrialized states. Fascist groups succeeded by the use of fantastic lies to deceive the public, including conspiracy theories, ScareCampaign, and propaganda, which were so numerous and all-encompassing in its media presence as to subvert the liberal norms in Italy and Germany. Contemporary fascist groups have likewise resorted to similar means. They benefit from the prevalence of legitimate schools such as {{Postmodernism}} and historical revisionism to try and downplay fascism by equivocation, emphasizing and exaggerating similarities between fascism and liberal and radical groups by means of half-truth and distortion, and by claiming a manufactured "third way" or a fantasized "victim" identity by painting the enforcers of liberal and social norms as agents of "political correctness". Most often, the latter comes down to conspiracies blaming, via dog-whistling, some sinister [[GreedyJew cabal]] of ceding their nation's sovereignty to the UN by destroying national identity through immigration and cultural degeneracy, which is InsaneTrollLogic at its finest, but in essence indistinguishable from the original fascism which also depended on heterodox and discredited ideas such as phrenology, eugenics, Social Darwinism and ConspiracyTheory.

In general, practical applications of Marxism have taken root exclusively in underdeveloped and developing nations rather than developed nations as Marx stated. As noted by Post-Cold War historians, Marxism in underdeveloped nations became a theory of modernism. Communists in Russia, China, Cuba, Vietnam and in the parts of Democratic India where they entered office for a brief time, sought to build Socialism by more or less remaking Britain's IndustrialRevolution under their stewardship and also developing urban communities, literacy, ending social ills, women's emancipation and secular education. The problem, as post-modernists pointed out, is that the idea of modernity represented by Marxism became {{Zeerust}} by TheSeventies, resulting in time in environmental degradation and industrial wastelands (It should be clarified that the environmental degradation is the result of successful industrialization over a relatively short period of time. 21st century development, particularly by China, shows that once the nation goes past the initial industrialization phase, the nation will begin to reverse environment trends due to increased capital availability. It should also be noted that ALL industrial nations goes through similar phases of environmental degradation. Only after productivity reaches a certain level, the nation will have spare resources to treat environmental issues. Of course, the alternative is staying primitive and backward, but that opens the nations up to foreign invasions.), while their social modernist programs created an educated professional class whose demands could only be fulfilled by mass BreadsAndCircuses and bribery (as in Post-Deng China and Post-Doi Moi Vietnam. Though this issue is more complicated than it seems. Many of the corruption cases reported in China should have considered LEGAL in US. Also, as demonstrated in US elections, the western political systems are even worse in this regard. Basically, all practical governments require some types of mechanism that sooth public opinion. Marxism can hardly be singled out in this issue). Eric Hobsbawm, a British Marxist historian, noted the irony that Marxism as great powers depended greatly on taking over the domains of former great empires like UsefulNotes/TsaristRussia and UsefulNotes/{{China}} while depending on their intellectual justification for the support of revolutionaries in poorer nations who by and large (with the exception of UsefulNotes/{{Cuba}} and UsefulNotes/{{Vietnam}}) did not turn communist or last in such form for a great deal of time.

"A neoconservative is a liberal who's been mugged by reality. A neoliberal is a liberal who's been mugged by reality but has refused to press charges."

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/{{Friends}}'' was a popular TV sitcom in TheNineties but came under renewed focus in many WebVideo in TheNewTens (especially on Website/{{Cracked}}) for its internalization of the casual homophobia typical among liberal yuppies of the era, for its denial of [[FriendsRentControl issues of gentrification]], its MonochromeCasting in a very diverse, multicultural city, as well for the way the [[https://www.vice.com/en_us/article/the-terrible-legacy-of-friends characters seem to reside in a bubble]] unconnected with changes in the decades.
* ''Series/MadMen'' [[http://opensiuc.lib.siu.edu/cgi/viewcontent.cgi?article=1000&context=gmrc_gc is noted]], as in the case of ''Forrest Gump'' for depicting TheSixties in a manner that acknowledges the political tumult of that era but at the same depoliticizing the characters and their relation to society.

-> ''“A conceptual conflation of democracy and liberty (freedom) […] can only be called scandalous, especially coming from self-proclaimed libertarians. The foundation and cornerstone of liberty is the institution of private property; and private — exclusive — property is logically incompatible with democracy — majority rule. Democracy has nothing to do with freedom. Democracy is a soft variant of communism, and rarely in the history of ideas has it been taken for anything else.”''

* Neoconservative: a (''de facto'') dictatorship with an unregulated 'free market' is the only good and practical form of society. The role of government is not just to promote individualism and competition, and eliminate collectivism and altruism: above all it is to protect elites' power from the majority by any and all means including warfare, repression, and the exploitation of ethno-religious tensions.

* Neoconservative: a (''de facto'') dictatorship with an unregulated 'free market' Liberal democracy is "the end of history" and must be enforced through global capitalist democratic hegemony backed up by military force. The term, "Pax Americana" refers to neoconservatism as a means of protecting the only good global order through U.S. interventionism by toppling unstable dictators and practical form forcing isolationist states to embrace global trade through gunboat diplomacy. This backed up by traditional religious values, adoration of society. The role of police, military and intelligence services, skepticism towards government is not just to promote individualism intervention in the economy and competition, and eliminate collectivism and altruism: above all it is to protect elites' power from an unwavering view of the majority by any and all means including warfare, repression, and the exploitation value of ethno-religious tensions. liberal democracy.
