    I don't think my hatred of fascism is "senseless"...

    There is no positive to accentuate, in regard to fascism.

    Some things must be destroyed, not merely for the sake of destruction, but for the sake of building a more just and viable future.

    But, I can dig your yearning for more substantial positive elements of analysis, beyond, or, despite, the harsh reality that seeks to impose itself upon us.

    There is, indeed, a lot more to life than danger, trauma, anger and fear, sorrow and horror, death and destruction...

    But those things, as unpleasant as they are, remain real, and will not be materially dispelled by "positive thinking", in and of itself.

    I think we need both, the positive outlook, toward a brighter future, as well a poignant awareness of, and a resolute determination, based on reality, to resolve the contradictions.
