Been getting more disgusted with the news media here...and the reporting to where everyone who disagrees with someone else is a racist...or a fascist...or some other label.
Been thinking in the mean time about the word "Fascist." I am wondering if the members or even the people who use that word...understand the very meaning or implication as to what the word "Fascist " describes.
I have been taught that the word 'Fascist" means strong state control of the economy ..but the means of production remains in state control. In other words there is very strong regulation and control over the private sector..but the means of production remains in private hands.
Extending this further...into Communism...the main difference is that the means of production is now in government hands with strong state control and regulation.
Is this the understanding the members here have??
I bring this line of thought up because it gets disgusting listening to the media and these college kids constantly labeling Trump and Company as Fascists/Racists et al..etc etc etc..and any other label for which they can conjure up for political capital.
Seems to me that Trump and Company are not using the White House to promote new regulations and controls but cut/or get rid of a good many of them...particularly economic controls and regulations.
It strikes me that we have just stepped out of 8 years of Fascist control to the point of bullying and forcing people into a controlled herd...using Racism/Economic controls...all of them Facist in nature and not the product advertised....nor the results achieved.
Have any of the members here pondered this sort of backwardness??? This dichotomy in labeling and whoredom within the body politic...this 180 degree flip flop??
Have any of you noticed this pattern behind the word so often used/misused today...."Fascism??"
And in line with Racism...in like manner to Fascism...it was the last 8 years of the Obama administration who depended so much on manufactured Racism...manufacturing a bad guy ...by manipulating racism...to beat others into submission. It was they who needed racism across the board. This also aided in concealing the Fascism which was going on.
Just an aide to more and more "Herd Mentality." Turning out Xerox copies of the same olde confusion/chaos...labels of Racism and Fascism.
But both labels get very tiring and cause me to ask if some of these folks have enough knowledge of the historical pattern of what went on ...much less any definitions off which to help in noting history.
What do you members think...?? And about the definition of Fascism??
