Another supposed essential character of fascism is its anticapitalist, antibourgeois animus. Early fascist movements flaunted their contempt for bourgeois values and for those who wanted only ‘to earn money, money, filthy money.’ They attacked 'international finance capitalism’ almost as loudly as they attacked socialists. They even promised to expropriate department-store owners in favor of patriotic artisans, and large landowners in favor of peasants.
Whenever fascist parties acquired power, however, they did nothing to carry out these anticapitalist threats. By contrast, they enforced with the utmost violence and thoroughness their threats against socialism. Street fights over turf with young communists were among their most powerful propaganda images. Once in power, fascist regimes banned strikes, dissolved independent labor unions, lowered wage earners’ purchasing power, and showered money on armaments industries, to the immense satisfaction of employers. Faced with these conflicts between words and actions concerning capitalism, scholars have drawn opposite conclusions. Some, taking the words literally, consider fascism a form of radical anticapitalism. Others, and not only Marxists, take the diametrically opposite position that fascists came to the aid of capitalism in trouble, and propped up by emergency means the existing system of property distribution and social hierarchy.
This book takes the position that what fascists DID tells us at least as much as what they SAID. What they said cannot be ignored, of course, for it helps explain their appeal. Even at its most radical, however, fascist’s anticapitalist rhetoric was selective.
Okay so, there is all this debate going on here about Elucien vs Elriel and how Elriel is somehow less valid because Elain and Lucien are mates. But, seeing as unrequited love is a thing, what if Elain is Lucien’s mate…

jace jogged up the last few steps to the institute’s roof. technically they weren’t allowed up here but there were A LOT of things they were going to attempt to do tonight that WEREN’T allowed. jace took out his stele and pressed it to a STRANGE looking rune on his forearm. seconds later, MASSIVE black and gold wings, so large their feathers touched the ground and stood above his shoulders. clary as standing next to him and jace let his wings FLUTTER slightly before putting some distance between him and clary. he UNFURLED his wings, they were nearly TWELVE FEET all the way across, and it seemed that with great ease his wings flapped, ONCE, TWICE, THREE times and he was several feet off the ground. he flew over to clary and hovered, gently lowering himself until he was SQUARE in front of her, he placed a gentle kiss on her lips. “i’m going to attempt to show you HOW TO FLY tonight. your wings might not be strong enough yet but you need to start STRETCHING them and using them. READY?”
