I really don't know. I have read all the posts and have become more confused of what fascism, socialism, communism is anymore. So, I guess it depends on who you ask or where you live. The only conclusion I can come to is, we all feel oppressed and digressing to tribalism (my concept) from fear.

Do you or do you not support equality and freedom? Honestly you confuse me. I do not know which side you are on.
Because, in the end, if I chose a "side", I'd have to support issues I didn't believe in.

As mankind become more liberal they will be more apt to allow, that all those who conduct themselves as worthy members of the Community are equally entitled to the protection of civil Government. I hope ever to see America among the foremost nations in examples of justice and liberality.

Both the left and the right could be accused of such.
That is exactly why the OP is wrong.
Saying that Fascism is authoritarian so it must be left is incorrect.
But the genuine Conservative "Right" does not promote authoritarian policies.
