Abstract

The purpose of this dissertation is to wrestle with the idea of whether fascism has been revitalised in the 21st century by Vladimir Putin, or if Putin is a result of lexicon laxity? To explore this, it was first crucial to recognise the one dilemma that constantly occurred, defining fascism. It soon became apparent that the very idea of a fascist regime being rejuvenated relied upon the understanding of fascism itself.2 The mere complexities of the fascist ideology lacked ideological consistency and therefore it appeared to disorient those who pursued an absolute definition. Simply, fascism appeals to, “skinheads and intellectuals; denounces the bourgeoisie while forming alliances with conservatives; adopts a macho style yet attracts many women; calls for a return to tradition and is fascinated by technology…Fascism, as Oretega y Gasset says, is always ‘A and not A’”.3 Essentially, as fascism appeared to have an ideological pillar it would simultaneously disregard that same pillar with another, this then means that it is difficult to have a solid functional flowing definition.
