The Extreme Right have no more in common
With the Conservatives than
The Extreme Left ... with the Liberals.
Both fascism and communism are outside the pale
Of a church/state compromise,
The one tending to signify a church absolutism,
The other ... a state absolutism,
Albeit, in both cases, very different churches
And states from those pertaining to liberal civilization.
If fascism falls short of conceiving
The religious successor to the Church ... in the Centre,
It at least undermines the State
And intimates, in its paradoxical way, of
A higher possibility.
Hitler's Reich wasn't so much a state (which
in any case is implicated in republicanism) as a
Crude and bogus Centre,
One opposed to all republicanism
And, by implication, democratic sovereignty.
A 'Centre' without the truth, fascism
An extreme right-wing antithesis to communism
Which, in its Marxist purism, is without
The Leninist 'State' or, more correctly,
Pseudo-Kingdom of Bolshevism,
As formerly applying to Soviet Communism.
No less than Bolshevism was beyond Marxism ...
Social Transcendentalism is beyond fascism,
Being the ideology of the Second Coming,
The logical successor to Christianity.
And no less than Soviet Communism weakened
The totalitarian State, or Bolshevik pseudo-Kingdom,
Through the infusion of pseudo-democracy,
So Social Transcendentalism would
Strengthen the Centre, until, ultimately,
Nothing but the Centre remained,
Transcendentalism having eclipsed
Even the 'social' side, or transmuted state-aspect,
Of Social Transcendentalism.
