In his comments on Mircea Vulcănescu. O microistorie a interbelicului românesc (Eikon, 2015), Emanuel Copilaș states that, regarding the cause of the far right radicalization manifested in the interwar Romania, I share the same historical explanation about fascism as Ernst Nolte. In this concise answer, I explain why this is an unsuitable comparison by summarizing the historiographical perspective I use in the cited volume. Nevertheless, Copilaș’s comments are reopening a debate about how to explain the Romanian fascism.
Keywords: fascism, Ernst Nolte, legionnaire movement, conservatism.
