I take it, OP, that your problem is with so-called fascist corporatists. The state is itself a corporation; a community group is a corporation; a
nuclear family is a corporation. Your issue seems to be with the corporations that seek to unify their own governing structure with that of the State.
This is fascism, if we refer to the central symbol of the Fasces
; the binding together of many smaller
powers to create a single greater power.
You act as if this were a bad thing. It is a natural thing. It is the essence of corporations. All corporations are unities of lesser powers into
greater powers. A family unifies multiple individuals under one roof. A business unifies many workers under one employer. A State unifies many
citizens under one government. It is only natural that corporations would unify with each other to become greater corporations, as with business
mergers, family unions (marriage), or government amalgamations. It is the natural tendency of all corporations to work towards the creation of a
universal, total union
. When this occurs in politics, we traditionally use the term totalitarianism
The problem you have with it, as I see it, is that this process disenfranchises the human individual at the lower levels of the corporation. The
employer in a small business may merge his business interests with many other employers, but now he is but one member on a board of directors and his
employees have little say in the affairs of the Board. The chairman of the Board may approve a merger with other corporations, but now he is but one
voice on that
board, and the board members that he is chair of have little say in its affairs, and the employees at the bottom have still less.
The way I see it, your problem is with big government
. Big government is exceedingly efficient at co-ordinating resources, and it is the only
way to co-ordinate resources at a global level. As we move into an increasingly global era, Big Government becomes increasingly necessary, and this
means that lesser governments are being partially disenfranchised. With the European Union, the member states are no longer true sovereigns; the EU is
the sovereign corporation of which they are a part. With the United States of America or the Federal Republic of Germany, the individual states are no
longer true sovereigns; the Federal Republic is the sovereign corporation of which they are a part. At each ascending step in this hierarchy, the
common people have less and less direct say.
I assume that I am correct in assessing your concern. You are worried that the union of Big Business into Big Government will increase the layers of
bureaucratic hierarchy and that this will effectively lock the common man out of the highest levels of government.
