The struggle against Fascism begins|
with the struggle against Bolshevism (1939)
This article by Otto Rühle appeared in the American Council Communist journal Living Marxism (Vol. 4 No. 8 1939). In 1981 it was reprinted as a pamphlet in the UK by Bratach Dubh editions.
It seems to be based on a much longer text also written in 1939 called Brauner und Roter Faschismus. This was apparantly unpublished during Rühle's lifetime and was first published in Germany in "Schriften : Perspektiven einer Revolution in hochindustrialisierten Laendern" ( Mergner, Gottfried - Reinbek bei Hamburg : Rowohlt Taschenbuchverlag, 1971 ). A translation was published in French as « Fascisme Brun, Fascisme Rouge » by Spartacus in 1975 (Série B - No 63) and this is now also online. (We originally wrote that Brauner und Roter Faschismus was part of a still longer text in German called "Weltkrieg - Weltfaschismus - Weltrevolution". A correspondent kindly wrote to tell us that this is incorrect and that they are different texts).
