“Fascism should more appropriately be called Corporatism because it is a merger of state and corporate power”
I am not very political. It is not because I don’t have my own ideas and convictions, but because I don’t believe I have the time to really gather the information to make a true political statement. So don’t take this post as anything other than me presenting some ideas to start discussion. Fascism is a word that I believe a lot of people use but not many truly understand. While a lot of governments could be consider Fascist, even that of Adolf Hitler, to me the term only refers to Mussilini an the Italians during his time in power.
Taking the above quote and thinking about our current situation in America, one could say that all the government scandals would make us look fascist. I am really not sure. I would hope that we have a case of some bad apples and not that our whole goverment is a well “oiled” machine working for corporate interest and not the American people.
Websters dictonary defines facism as 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. We see this definition painted on the movie V for Vendetta. A movie that truly recommend. Do you believe we live under a fascist regime?
