Only thing Fascist about Hitler was totalitarian regime. The rest were actually socialist ways of thinking. Purifying the society from what they beleived to be not the race of their choosing.

"All REAL world applications of those claiming to be Fascist be definition are RIGHT wing. That defintion is incomplete because it does not address the socia, economicl and political policies of what real world fascists have subscribed to and/or done." --------------------------------------------------------- Sorry YY....that is YOUR opinion, not anything based in fact or scholarly writings. Merriam-Webster is a WORLD dictionary. If we are going to use what we perceive as an actual example, then for every FAR right wing one, I can easily provide a FAR left wing one. Therefore, I believe the DEFINED and PUBLISHED definition is the most accurate.

From Merriem-Webster:

fascism Main Entry: fas·cism Pronunciation: 'fa-"shi-z&m also 'fa-"si- Function: noun Etymology: Italian fascismo, from fascio bundle, fasces, group, from Latin fascis bundle & fasces fasces 1 often capitalized : a political philosophy, movement, or regime (as that of the Fascisti) that exalts nation and often race above the individual and that stands for a centralized autocratic government headed by a dictatorial leader, severe economic and social regimentation, and forcible suppression of opposition 2 : a tendency toward or actual exercise of strong autocratic or dictatorial control <early instances of army fascism and brutality -- J. W. Aldridge> - fas·cist /-shist also -sist/ noun or adjective, often capitalized - fas·cis·tic /fa-'shis-tik also -'sis-/ adjective, often capitalized - fas·cis·ti·cal·ly /-ti-k(&-)lE/ adverb, often capitalized ----------------------------------------------------------------- I would hope that open-minded people could see how both of the definitions above could be applied to FAR Left or FAR Right philosophies, as both want to tell and/or dictate how individuals should live and breath.

Fascists employed totalitarian methods, but for conservative rather than socialist ends. Far more totalitarian toward the left than toward the right, Italian Fascists crushed the labor movement but allowed big business to run its affairs with a minimum of government interference. Cartels flourished in Fascist Italy at the expense of small business and the consumer, despite Mussolini's earlier promises that he would protect the latter. His anticapitalist rhetoric was contradicted by his policies, such as reducing taxes on big business, when he came to power. Eventually, however, corruption in the Fascist bureaucracy and the need to increase taxes, even on the rich, to support military spending alienated some conservatives from the regime.

This part is a little scarey...LOL

Fascism Elsewhere.

Fascism in other countries differed from the Italian variety in certain respects. For instance, in Germany (see NATIONAL SOCIALISM,) it was more racist; in Romania it was allied with the Orthodox church rather than the Roman Catholic church. In Spain, the radical Fascist FALANGE (q.v.) was originally hostile to the Roman Catholic church, although later, on the direction of dictator Francisco Franco, it merged with a reactionary and pro-Catholic group. Fascism in Japan was closely akin to that of Nazi Germany. Led by the military, it emphasized the traditional warrior virtues and an absolute dedication to the divine emperor. Like their German counterparts, Japanese Fascists also launched a fanatic drive for expansion by military conquest.

In France fascism was divided into several movements. Whereas fascism in most cases flourished in countries that were economically backward or marked by strong authoritarian political traditions, French fascism made headway in one of Europe's most established democracies. In 1934 an estimated 370,000 people belonged to the various French Fascist organizations, such as the Jeunesses Patriotes, the Solidarité Française, the Croix de Feu, the Action Française, and the Francistes. More than 100,000 of these were concentrated in Paris. Many prominent intellectuals and thousands of university students were attracted to Fascist ideals during the 1920s and '30s, in France and England as well as in Italy and Germany. R.J.So., ROBERT J.

Fascist methods.

Like Communists, Fascists employed totalitarian methods, but for conservative rather than socialist ends. Far more totalitarian toward the left than toward the right, Italian Fascists crushed the labor movement but allowed big business to run its affairs with a minimum of government interference. Cartels flourished in Fascist Italy at the expense of small business and the consumer, despite Mussolini's earlier promises that he would protect the latter. His anticapitalist rhetoric was contradicted by his policies, such as reducing taxes on big business, when he came to power. Eventually, however, corruption in the Fascist bureaucracy and the need to increase taxes, even on the rich, to support military spending alienated some conservatives from the regime.

From the beginning, the philosophy of Italian fascism heralded the virtues of war. Not only was military conquest seen as the way to solve the nation's economic problems, but military values were praised as good for their own sake. Among the favorite slogans of the regime were “Nothing has ever been won in history without bloodshed!” “A minute on the battlefield is worth a lifetime of peace!” Mussolini himself was to be obeyed in a military manner: “Believe! Obey! Fight!” “Mussolini is always right!” The Fascist male was to be Darwinian, not humanitarian; tough, not soft; masculine, not feminine. Concerned with the moral health of society, Fascists denounced “decadence” in all its forms: hedonism, materialism, individualism, democracy, and sexual laxity.

In 1929 Mussolini signed the Lateran Accords with the Vatican, naming Roman Catholicism the “only state religion.” Tension developed later between the state and the church over which of the two was to control Italian education.

The term fascism was first used by Benito Mussolini in 1919 and referred to the ancient Roman symbol of power, the fasces, a bundle of sticks bound to an ax, which represented civic unity and the authority of Roman officials to punish wrongdoers. Mussolini, the founder of fascism in Italy, began his political career as a Marxist. In 1912, as the editor of Italy's leading socialist newspaper, Avanti!, he opposed both capitalism and militarism. By 1914, however, he had changed his attitude, calling on Italy to enter World War I and moving toward an accommodation with the political right. Influenced by the ideas of Sorel and the German philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche, he glorified “action” and “vitality” and denounced antiwar Marxists for their lack of “pragmatism.” After the war, when a series of socialist-backed strikes broke out in Italy—both workers' strikes in the cities and peasants' strikes in the country—Mussolini put his movement at the service of conservative business and landlord interests that, together with the Roman Catholic church and the army, wanted to check the “red wave.” Mussolini's about-face brought him the political and financial backing he needed, and his own considerable oratorical powers did the rest (like Hitler in Germany, he was a highly effective demagogue).

And as far as the Nazis go....the traditional depiction of Hitler and his top guys being the only villians is COMPLETE BS. MANY MANY German officials and CITIZENS were involved in and complicit to the actions of the Nazi PARTY. Never said that either cum stain. I said if an org. does nothing to stop racism then that Org is just as guilty. now fuck off.
