(p.232) Conclusion
Pan-Germanism and the Austrofascist State, 1933-38

This text infers that Austria was a fascist regime even before the Anschluss in 1938. The Austrofascist efforts and vision pertaining to a new state and citizenry shared common theoretical ground with their Italian and German counterparts. Where German-speakers in the empire had been exhorted to perform their civic duty by preaching German values and raising German children in the multinational state, German-speakers in the new Austria were instructed to think, act, speak and pray as an example to their fellow Germans in the Reich and in neighboring countries. Hence, erstwhile frameworks were used to channel and process new contents. The moot project was of an expressly constructivist nature. It is posited that Austrians in the 1930s imagined themselves both as members of the wider German-speaking community in Central Europe and as citizens of a German Austrian state.
