I don't get it, Messerschmidt, Volvo, IG Farben, Volkswagen, Siemens, were not government owned or operated, perhaps someone can show us in Germany upto or during WW2 when the nazis socialized or took over private companies??
Because I guarantee this hasn't ever happened in a fascist state!!!!!
I do think Americas privatizing prisons, mercenaries and no bid contracts is very much fascism but I sure would never blame it on liberal or progressives!!!!

Everyone is concentrating on labels and not on the actual actions.
Was the Patriot Act patriotic?
Is the Freedom Act giving us more freedoms?
Who cares what the name is.
If you're into a style of government where they want to dictate the size of soda you drink, where they mandate that you purchase something, then I'll be opposing it.

Just popping in to remind everyone that Fascism is an actual political ideology with articulated principles. In a nutshell, Fascism considers the rights of the individual to be a selfish indulgence, and places the needs of the State above the rights of its citizens. In a Fascist society, fulfilling the needs of the State is the supreme spiritual accomplishment. Fascism is distinct from socialist systems in that it allows private property and free (though centrally directed) markets.
You may now resume your personal bickering.
are you kidding me? Do people actually believe modern US right is related to Nazism? If we make that reach then the left gets maoism and stalinism?
