fascism places an emphasis on community in decline, and external victimization, in which nationalist militants engage in an uneasy but effective alliances with conservative elites in a cleansing of the nation. Democratic liberties are removed and the state is seen as an organic outgrowth of the nation, its actions are just the actions of the nation.

The actions of the state should represent the actions of the nation. If  they aren't in conformity, you get a clash later on.

What I meant is that the state is the organic out growth of the community, and its actions are inherently the actions of the nation. Whether the people agree. Heres a good video on it:

Okay human6, I know that you like to babble, but I still don’t get how with everything you said, that you wouldn’t consider Hitler or Mussolini a fascist.

They were fascist, your definition of fascism was inaccurate

Caesar:
 
Sorry it took me forever to reply to this -_-
 
Right so, I was actually being sarcastic about Wikipedia being reliable :P  However I think it's good enough (considering all the moderation and anti-trolling measures it has got recently) for our purposes.  
 
Regardless, I feel your source supports my view.  The consolidation of power into one source doesn't have to literally be only one person in my opinion.  For instance lots of industrial powers have a large say in the government, more than we'd like to admit (source: ht tp://w ww.polisci.ccsu.e du/trieb/InfluGov.h tml)
and yet people are still supporting and buying from these companies (myself included) because they don't mind them being in control.  
 
So what we've got is a wholesome combination of American pride and minor xenophobia, coupled with the (generally) consensual consolidation of power into a single (or at least relatively small group of) power.  I would diagnose this as at the very least an offshoot of fascism, if not the real deal.
 
Thanks!

To human6:
 
What makes my definition of fascism inaccurate?
 
To Breece6:
 
Okay truthfully, we’ve been all over the place with this, but I’ll respond to what you said. I in fact do agree with you that a dictatorship doesn’t have to be an actual, single, person, but it can in fact be split between a small group of people or organizations. What really makes fascism or a dictatorship what it is, is the fact that people are denied their unalienable rights to life, liberty, or the pursuit of happiness. Fascists put down opposition, for the most part violently, take away the choice to choose and make their own decisions, and destroy happiness by taking away choice and free will. If you agree with that, then I think that we can agree on fascism.
 
PS Couldn’t read your article for some reason

Fascism is a philosophy, not just a racist dictatorship.

I’m sorry if you didn’t understand, but that’s clearly not what the definition said. I would hope that my source is more sophisticated than simply “racist dictatorship”. If you want to take a second look, here’s the URL again:

Came across this guy's definition of facism; I think he ought to know what he was talking about....


 





 




Fascism should more appropriately be called Corporatism because it is a merger of state and corporate power.




 




--Benito Mussolini

He meant corporations not in the way we think of them, but as the structural aspects of civil society (unions, companies, political parties, student groups, non profits ETC)

Okay. When you want to give a source, why don’t you try giving one that you haven’t already thrown out. I watched this the last time you passed it around, and it did two things to me:
 


Put me to sleep


Made me more confused about what you’re saying

I posted that already? could of sworn that was anatonomy of fascism.
 
eccentially fascism views the world as a kind of end of days, when the oppressed and victimized nation will rise in power and glory to former greatness (New Roman Empire, Third Reich). But first those who have betrayed the nation or are its enemies must be destroyed. All hints of curruption caused by these enemies and traitors must be expunged, in violent ritual of militarism and slaughter, which the first generations shall give their lives to cause. In fascism action is glorified for its own sake, as it is an expression of power. The nation is its mind, a will, and the state is the hand by which that will expresses itself.
