“Fascism should more appropriately be called Corporatism because it is a merger of state and corporate power”
— Benito Mussolini
I would like to direct readers to an excellent essay about the nature of fascism, and how close we are to getting there. Things look bad, but there is still time to turn this thing around. Please note in the article I will link to – the plight of the workers in Germany, Italy and Spain. All had to have workers logbooks, similar to passports that carried employer reviews. The company could seize these passports anytime, and the worker would not be able to seek further employment. There was mandatory jail time for missing work. The author also makes a point that the fascist dictatorship was not run by the corporations, it was run for the corporations. Please read the entire article at the link, but let’s take a look at one quote:

“The historian Isaac Deutscher, in the third volume of his Trotsky biography, The Prophet Outcast, captured the mood of German shopkeepers and other middle class people who came to ruin during the Weimar Republic:

“The Kleinbürger normally resented his social position: he looked up with envy and hatred at big business, to which he so often hopelessly succumbed in competition; and he looked down upon the workers, jealous of their capacity for political and trade union organization and for collective self-defense. … At big business the small man shook his fists as if he were a socialist; against the worker he shrilled his bourgeois respectability, his horror of class struggle, his rabid nationalist pride, and his detestation of Marxist internationalism. This political neurosis of impoverished millions gave [Nazism] its force and impetus.”

Here’s the article;

Our world is awful, yes, but it isn’t fascism — yet
