Faceless Fascism: Autonomous Nationalists of Slovenia

The article deals with generic fascism and simultaneously devotes attention to fascist ideology. The author claims that the concept of generic fascism can be used as an umbrella term, and that various neofascist, national-socialist and far-right movements can be classified under this term. The author also focuses on fascist ideology, which he finds a fluid and continuous process, which, through time, assumes various forms and permutations. The aim of this article is, firstly, to introduce both typologically multidimensional and minimalist definitions through the concept of generic fascism based on national-socialist movement, and secondly, to upgrade the current theory of generic fascism. In the first part, the author introduces the concept of generic fascism, its main features and advantages, and then links them with the mimicry of fascist ideology. In the second part, the author deals with the case of Autonomous Nationalists, and afterwards with the local fraction called the Autonomous Nationalists of Slovenia. In the final segment, the author presents pros and cons of using the concept of generic fascism.
