Quote of the week

Now you cannot understand anything about fascist doctrine if you do not understand that their central claim was that liberalism is antidemocratic; in other words, the fascists claimed that liberal institutions cannot represent the will of the people. They further claimed that their typical institutions, particularly the party, were more effective means to represent the will of the people. So fascists were “authoritarian democrats.”

Classic Private Eye cover from 1966

My friend Michael sent me a copy of this classic front cover of Private Eye from 1966 after HF Verwoerd was killed. Wonderful thing this internet.
