For future reference, in the context of work produced into/"with" the masses and its dynamics and how the illusion of participation can be kept by a leader.


        Fascism sees its salvation in allowing the
        masses to find their voice (not, of course,
        to receive their due). The masses have a
        right to see the ownership structure
        changed: Fascism seeks to give them a
        /voice/ in retaining that structure
        unaltered. /Fascism leads logically to an
        aestheticization of political life/.
