Another Supporter of Unity08

Unity08.com, the corporation with aims to sponsor its own presidential ticket in 2008, proclaims the need for Americans to stop bitterly disagreeing with one another and unite together under one political banner: “We hope instead to return the focus of our politics and policy to the common good — those ideas and traditions which unite and empower us as individuals and as a people.”

I’ve found a strong supporter of Unity08’s goals: the 20th Century Spaniard Jose Antonio Primo De Rivera, who wrote the following regarding movements of political “unity” for the “common good” of a nation:

Fascism is not a tactic — violence. It is an idea — unity! Fascism was born to inspire a faith not of the Right (which at the bottom aspires to conserve everything, even the unjust) or of the Left (which at bottom aspires to destroy everything, even the good), but a collective integral, national faith.

A Fascist state is not created by the triumph of either the strongest or most numerous party — which is not the right one for being the most numerous, though a stupid suffrage may say otherwise — but by the triumph of a principle of order common to all…

— Jose Antonio Primo De Rivera, writing for ABC, quoted in Stanley Payne’s Falange.
