This chapter revisits Deleuze and Guattari's account of fascism to construct a conception of it appropriate to the advent of a new kind of fascism emerging in the US today. Unsettling Deleuze and Guattari's adoption of Virilio's notion of fascism as the ‘suicidal state’, it pays careful attention to the place of the fascist war machine and total war in the passage to global capitalism. As well as exploring the integrated libidinal, economic and geopolitical scales of Deleuze and Guattari's concept, the chapter takes their concept beyond its terminus in the cold war to consider the shared psychic formations of the German Freikorps and the US Christian fundamentalist right, and the place of Bush's new hot wars in global accumulation.

Keywords:   Gilles Deleuze, Félix Guattari, fascist war machine, total war, global capitalism Freikorps, Christian fundamentalist right
