First of all, Islamism, Nazism, and Communism are all totalitarian ideologies; very little private space is granted to people who are told what to do in various walks of life; for those ideologies, the individual is unimportant and his rights are irrelevant. Secondly, all three ideologies are centred upon the principle of infallibility, namely the existence within them of an allegedly flawless factor that is surrounded by unquestionable assertions before which reason is forced to be utterly powerless (e.g., Hitler’s genius, Marx’s foresight, Allah’s perfection.) People are thus expected- and indeed compelled- to obey unhesitatingly, and any diversity or dissent is met with uncompromising intolerance. Thirdly, all three ideologies dehumanize those whom they deem to be their opponents, whether they are Jews, the bourgeoisie, or unbelievers; consequently, the well-deserved fate of those enemies is annihilation. Fourthly, Islamism, Nazism, and Communism need enemies as much as people need oxygen; putting their governed under a mental state of siege, scaring them into thinking that others intend to wipe them off the face of the earth, and fully mobilizing people’s energies and resources to face those enemies are techniques that have been frequently used by partisans of the said ideologies; xenophobia is therefore an indispensable part of such ideologies. Fifthly, while they demean their adversaries, those ideologies glorify their adherents who are described to us as the elite of humanity, worthy of far more respect and rewards than others are. Sixthly, integral to those three ideologies is the extremely bitter hostility towards freedom of thought and expression; very rarely, if ever, is the freedom to think for oneself as vilified as it is in Islamism, Nazism, and Communism; the anaesthetization of reason is the absolutely vital precondition for the blossoming of those aforementioned ideologies. And seventhly, diversity and pluralism are considered anathema in Islamism, Nazism, and Communism, unless that diversity is within those ideologies themselves and even then, tolerance and peaceful coexistence may not necessarily be the order of the day.
