A lot of people say America isn't Fascist. They say it is ruled by Capitalism and Socialism. While it is most certainly both of these it is also Fascist and here's why:

Definition of Fascism

Wikipedia gives a pretty good definition:

Fascism is a radical, authoritarian nationalist political ideology. Fascists seek to organize a nation according to corporatist perspectives, values, and systems, including the political system and the economy. They advocate the creation of a totalitarian single-party state that seeks the mass mobilization of a nation and the creation of an ideal "new man" to form a governing elite through indoctrination, physical education, and family policy including eugenics. Fascists believe that a nation requires strong leadership, singular collective identity, and the will and ability to commit violence and wage war in order to keep the nation strong. Fascist governments forbid and suppress opposition to the state.

And Merriam-Webster:

a political philosophy, movement, or regime (as that of the Fascisti) that exalts nation and often race above the individual and that stands for a centralized autocratic government headed by a dictatorial leader, severe economic and social regimentation, and forcible suppression of opposition

Okay so let's see if we can pick a few core aspects to define Fascism:

  • Corporatism
  • Single Party State (centralization)
  • "New man" via indoctrination, education, etc
  • Strong leadership
  • War
  • Suppress opposition

I think that list will hit on some of the important parts of Fascism. So with these things considered let's see how America stacks up to such things.

Corporatism

America is completely controlled by corporations and has been for years. Many of these corporations aren't even American corporations. You do know our entire money system is owned by private corporations right? The freaking money we use every day isn't even issued by our government! It's issued by corporations! It really doesn't get much more corporate than that. People are supporting corporatism day in and day out by unknowingly using a privately issued currency that is legally enforced by the government. Are you freaking kidding me? The Treasury doesn't even issue our own money? No, it's LENT to the Treasury by a private corporation AT INTEREST. So to even think that America is not ran by corporations is one of the most insane positions an honest, thinking individual could take.

Mayer Amschel Rothschild says it best:

Give me control of a nation's money and I care not who makes her laws.

This is just one example of corporations owning and running America, but it is probably the most important one.

Single Party State

America has one party: the collective party. It doesn't matter whether you're a Democrat or a Republican. Either way you support big government and collectivism. This IS a single party state. Both parties are essentially the same with a few minor differences. And more importantly, they are BOTH controlled by corporations. Let's see what JP Morgan, one of the wealthiest Americans ever, thought about this:

To Morgan all political parties were simply organizations to be used, and the firm always was careful to keep a foot in all camps. Morgan himself, Dwight Morrow, and other partners were allied with the Republicans; Russell C. Leffingwell was allied with the Democrats; Grayson Murphy, with the extreme Right; and Thomas W. Lamont, with the Left. Like the Morgan interest in libraries, museums, and art, its inability to distinguish between loyalty to the United States, and loyalty to England, its recognition of the need for social work among the poor, the multi-partisan political views of the Morgan firm in domestic politics went back to the original founder of the firm, George Peabody (1795-1869). To this same seminal figure may be attributed the use of tax-exempt foundations for controlling these activities, as may be observed in many parts of America to this day.
Carroll Quigley; Tragedy & Hope

Oh weird, just the richest bankers in America talking about how they control either side of the political spectrum - and this was some 100 years ago. Anybody who buys into the left/right paradigm is exactly what the Fascists want.

"New man" via indoctrination, education, etc

There is this one small American name called Rockefeller. Let's see:

Keep in mind that the General Education Board was founded in 1903 by the Rockefeller Foundation—one of the most powerful and wealthiest foundations of its time. What we see here is an attitude that dates back over a hundred years, one of the elite rich of the United States, and even the world, seemingly orchestrating education curriculum to meet their needs and not necessarily the needs of the student. This is important today, because although these attitudes are over a century old, they have not gone away, and they are the driving force behind your education, my education, and the education of your children. And they are the driving force behind the suppression of financial education even today. You do not need to know about money when you are destined to simply be a cog in someone else's money machine, or a worker on someone else's plantation.
Robert Kiyosaki

Our schools have been completely taken over as planned by the corporations. Corporations don't want you to grow up to know how to think. They want to tell you what to think. Education has been completely taken over by corporations for their own benefit. The only reason it's not so obvious to most people is because, well, they're in school of course!

Strong leadership

You are aware that the US President has this little thing called Executive Orders right? You're also aware that the Constitution was designed where Congress was supposed to be ABOVE the executive branch. You are aware that the President isn't supposed to be a big deal for America. But why is it today that he is the main focus? To say America doesn't have strong leadership is absolutely ludicrous. We have Presidents taking us unconstitutionally into war after war. Which brings us to...

War

America doesn't police the word. Oh wait, yeah it does. We've been policing the world Roman style for a long time now. You can't be Fascist without going out and bombing the dictators that you create and double-crossing the deals that you've made. America has this Fascist plank completely covered :)

Suppress opposition

What happens when you try to practice commerce with gold and silver in America? What happens when you try to exercise your Constitutional liberty of using gold and silver to buy goods and services? How long will the Fascist government let you get away with that before putting an end to you?

What about refusing to pay your income taxes because it is Constitutionally illegal and logically illogical? How long will the Fascist IRS let you get away with exercising your freedom of not paying a fraudulent income tax?

Conclusion

So when I talk about America being Fascist I'm not just saying it for fun. This is a very serious issue and to think that it's not is to simply be a part of it. You've been had. You're part of the "new man" that has been indoctrinated to be a slave. Am I saying anybody who disagrees with me is wrong? No, I don't have it all figured out. But I'm also not so unread as to think that America isn't Fascist. It clearly is. And it's also Socialist. These two are obviously very similar - they were both invented by the same people.

I mean frick, it's all right there in the symbolism:

Fascism may be an ugly word to many, but its stately emblem is apparently offensive to no one. The emblem of fascism, a pair of them, commands the wall above and behind the speaker's rostrum in the Chamber of the House of Representatives. They're called fasces, and I can think of no reason for them to be there other than to declare the fascistic nature of American republican democracy.
Tupper Saussy; Rulers of Evil

We're so Fascist we're not even Fascist from within. We have International Corporations controlling us through Fascism - not even our own. That's how Fascist we are.

But I mean, go ahead and fight me on it. It really doesn't bother me. You can come work for me. You can come be a slave for me. I don't want it that way but if you really want to fight so hard to be a slave well have at it. Enjoy your serfdom.

Silver Lotto System: a clear violation of human rights.

telling what others to think, say or do is a sign of pure control. This violates human rights and the freedom of speech and to do what is right.

Anonymous: I just want to point out

I just want to point out that our money isn't lent for backing the dollar, it's based on faith and faith alone, there is no actual monetary backing to the US dollar. I was taught this in high school economics and again in college. You can also find this information on the web.The US Treasury issues the money and the US Treasury is a gov't office.

Although I believe the US isn't where it should be and has come a long way since it was founded correct information is just as important as an opinion when attempting to paint a country in the light in which you are.

Quinton Figueroa: Thank you very much for you
@Anonymous (view comment)

Thank you very much for you input, however, I do not think what you said is entirely correct. You are correct that our money is based on faith and faith alone. Shouldn't that warn you that something is not right?

As for the Treasury issuing our money, that just isn't correct. If you pull out a bill and examine it you will not find the words "United States Treasury" printed anywhere on it. But you will find the words "Federal Reserve Note" and the seal of the United States Federal Reserve System printed on it. This is because the Federal Reserve System issues our fiat currency. Technically speaking the US Treasury does issue our coins, but that's it. All our bills and digital currency is all issued through the Fed which is a hybrid entity. This information I am talking about is not going to be talked about in high school or college. The mere fact that you don't know about the Fed should give credence to my point that we are influenced by corporations and important pieces of information are not being taught to us.

The Fed is a privately owned entity that operates within certain Federal laws and regulations. The Fed was officially ruled as a private entity in court. Again, this stuff is not talked about in schools that are basically heavily influenced by the same people behind the Fed.

There is a lot more to this topic, but I will let you enlighten yourself on it. Read some Federal Reserve quotes and let me know what you think.

Thanks!

Anonymous: Do you even know what

Do you even know what corporatism means? The Fascist use of the term 'corporatism' has absolutely nothing to do with business corporations. The term is derived from the latin word 'corpus', which means body. Under Mussolini's rule, all of the industries, interest groups, and cultural organizations in Italy were consolidated into large representative bodies called corporations. Both workers and employers of various industries would elect representatives that would collectively bargain and debate wages, prices, and production. These corporations in turn would be asked to obey the dictates of the Fascist state. This way, certain businesses could stay private in theory but were still commanded by the government in practice. Thus, corporatism was seen as a 'third position', or third way alternative to both capitalism and communism, since Mussolini saw both as simply favoring one class over another. As for the rest of your comments on fascism, they are patently retarded. If the USA were truly fascist we wouldn't have ugly cities, obese citizens, polluted landscapes, trashy culture, or crime-ridden degenerates- why? because fascists actually tried to improve society.

Anna Kelly: Corporatism vs Free Market

Can you please distinguish between corporatism and free market and what role they both play in a Capitalist society. It seems that free market requires neutral government and values competition, whereas corporatism does not.

Is not this distinction fundamental to any useful discussion on fascism vs capitalism?

some dude: This article takes a lot of

This article takes a lot of big assumptions without really take much time to back your claims.

Anonymous: With all the people angrily

With all the people angrily disagreeing with the author, I'm actually grudgingly starting to think there's something to his point. When you connect all the pieces together, they begin to form a frightening picture. Of course a fascist is going to deny being a fascist, after all when an evil person looks in the mirror, he never sees an evil person looking back. My daddy always said, "If it looks like a duck, and it quacks like a duck, it's probably a duck.
