To me, therefore, the socialist of another country is a fellow-patriot, as the capitalist of my own country is a natural enemy. I regard each nation as the possessor of a definite contribution to the common stock of civilisation, and I regard the capitalist class of each nation as being the logical and natural enemy of the national culture which constitutes that definite contribution.
Therefore, the stronger I am in my affection for national tradition, literature, language, and sympathies, the more firmly rooted I am in my opposition to that capitalist class which in its soulless lust for power and gold would bray the nations as in a mortar."
— James Connolly
Malisic, who says his particular group of fighters is called “the Wolves”, says they arrived in Crimea on the invitation of Russian fighters - and wanted to repay the Russians for their support for Serbia in the Balkan wars of the 1990s.
“During the wars in Yugoslavia, a lot of volunteers fought on the Serbian side, so we, as their brothers, have decided to help them. That is why we are here,” Malisic continued.
Anti-fascism as a phenomena in most nations of the West (excluding Greece), has at its gist two main natures:
One resembling the confrontation and initiation of, for instance, gangs and one of the perverse fantasies of the middle class - they wish to draw up an enemy and a situation that does not exist, in order to bestow purpose to their various commitments and draw light away from the fact that they are dead on the inside.
In the end, anti-fascism as well as the left-extremism is connected at its hip with the middle class, its mode of thought and its nature. Working class independence is left behind, socialism suffers further distortion and the ones who end up getting stabbed for a middle class fantasy, are workers’ youth.
