Fascism and gov’t

The reality of fascism is that monopolies control the government, who in turn control the monopolies, but in a way that favors the monopolies of course. This is the essence of how the Nazis seized power – they got financial backing from very powerful cartels who appreciated that a dictatorship eliminated free enterprise thus eliminating competition.

You see monopolies and cartels don’t represent free enterprise – capitalism – the spirit of America. No! What they represent is an eradication of capitalism. In that sense, their goals are similar to communists’. Fascism and communism are remarkably similar – they both require monopoly of industry, control of the media, secret police and an enemy of the state – a boogeyman – to survive.
