Facsism is literally “power of the many”. Comes from Roman tribunes who carried bunches of facsi (rods) to beat those who disobeyed Senate orders. The bunch of fasci symbolized their united strength derived from the majority rule of the Senate. In this way fascism is a top down government first ideology. But in terms of money and economics fascism has nothing to do with Socialism as we know it: means of production controlled by the workers (but really the government). I think the distinction is important enough to highlight.Hitler was a socialist. The Lefty-Media/conglomerate likes to down-play this fact completely because they like to assign Nazism to the "Right". Nazism is no more a right wing notion than Marxism is. Yes indeed, he had his own brand of socialisms, but he was a socialist nevertheless.
