Normally fascism comes out of the primitive ego of the right, not the intellect of the left. Of course the very extreme left can wonder into the same thinking as the extreme right.

This is refected by the fact that the primitive ego is strongest in the rual areas vs. the intellect of metropolitan regions. Indeed, the home of Nazism was rual Bavaria not Berlin, as is Trump’s fascist strength in the countryside not the cities.
