What does it mean to be a Facist?
Fascism is a radical authoritarian nationalist political ideology. They are intensely anti-communist and anti-democratic.
It advocates the creation of a totalitarian single-party state that seeks the mass mobilization of a nation through discipline, indoctrination, physical education, and family policy (such as eugenics).
This state is led by a supreme leader who exercises a dictatorship over the fascist movement, the government and other state institutions. It is a tightly controlled economy that works closely with the corporate leadership and upholds the interests of private capital.
Fascist governments forbid and suppress opposition. Fascists seek to rejuvenate their nation based on commitment to the national community as an organic entity, in which individuals are bound together in national identity by suprapersonal connections of ancestry, culture, and blood. To achieve this, fascists purge forces, ideas, people, and systems deemed to be the cause of decadence and degeneration.
Fascism promotes political violence and war as actions that create national regeneration, spirit and vitality. It views violence as a fact of life that is a necessary means to achieve human progress.
Fascism opposes class-based identity and society. Fascists present their ideology as that of an economically trans-class movement that advocates resolving economic class conflict to secure national solidarity. It rejects egalitarianism, materialism, and rationalism in favour of action, discipline, hierarchy, spirit and will.
Fascists advocate a state-directed, regulated economy that is dedicated to the nation.
Hitler and Mussolini were two famous fascists.
