  • I would say fascism is any ideology where individual or minority group needs/rights are superceded by the needs/rights of the state. I suppose that "state" could be replaced by any "authority figure"... so I could say "my boss is a fascist" if his needs supercede mine without discussion. Fascism is a combination of myopia and selfishness on the part of those in authority.
    • That's much too broad for a definition. You need to add some more characteristics : * the state controls every aspect of the life -- unions, political parties, media, judiciary system. Political opposition is considered unpatriotic and is forbidden. * economically, fascism is opposed to both liberal capitalism and to communism. The economy is indirectly state-controlled, via regroupments of corporations, which are controlled by private tycoons with sympathies for the state, that helps them maintaining large trusts or monopolies.
