fascism is a term that no longer can contain an meaning that doesn't contextually include references to National Socialism. Better to use the term "Corporatism" when referring to Trump's desire to use state power to create a more centrally planned economy and limit free market interactions. This is why I preferred Hillary...because she was more oriented to the free market construct than Trump is.
"When a party strives to disqualify voters who don't vote their way then it is a Fascist party."
Wanna know what else fascism is known for having pioneered? Let's start with the state being responsible for providing good jobs for citizens.
And the abolition of income that does not arise from work.
And the abolition of war profits.
And the nationalization of all trusts.
And the demand that the nation benefit from profits accrued by large companies. And generous old-age pensions.
And the demand for the "creation and maintenance of a sound middle-class, the immediate communalization of large stores which will be rented cheaply to small tradespeople, and the strongest consideration must be given to ensure that small traders shall deliver the supplies needed by the State, the provinces and municipalities."
And agrarian reforms...including the abolition of ground rents and land speculation. And free access to higher education.
And the end to "those who propagate deliberate political lies and disseminate them through the press."
AND finally, "the creation of a strong central authority in the State, the unconditional authority by the political central parliament of the whole State and all its organizations."
These are from the National Socialists 25 point program. But they could have come just as easily from Bernie Sanders.
Now you can start to understand what people are saying when they reference National Socialism as a left-wing construct. It's not totally, but economically it was very far left. I have doubts that there is little here you would disagree with.
