Luciana Parisi and Tiziana Terranova's Interview on "Crowd, Power and 
Post-democracy in the 21st Century @ Obsolete Capitalism

Rural fascism and city or neighborhood fascism, youth fascism and war 
veteran's fascism... fascism of the couple, family, school, and office. 
Only the micro-fascism can answer the global question: "why does desire 
long for its repression? how can it desires its very own 
repression?"—Gilles Deleuze, Fèlix Guattari, A thousand plateaus, pg.271

On the micro-fascism
Obsolete Capitalism Let us start from the analysis Wu Ming set out in 
their brief essay Grillismo: Yet another right-wing cult coming from 
Italy and which interprets Grillo’s Five Star Movement as a new 
authoritarian right-wing faction. Why did the desire for change of much 
of the electorate long once again for its very repression? We seem to 
witness the re-affirmation of Wilhelm Reich’s thought: at a given moment 
in history the masses wanted fascism. The masses have not been deceived: 
they have understood very well the danger of authoritarianism; but they 
have voted it anyway. Even more worrying is that the authoritarian 
Berlusconi's Freedom People (PDL) and Grillo’s Five Star Movement (M5S) 
conquer more than half of the Italian electorate together. A very 
similar situation arose in the UK in May 2013, with the UKIP’s exploit 
in the latest local elections. Why and in what measure are the toxins of 
authoritarianism and micro-fascism present in contemporary European society?
