Hi Stephen P. King
The word "must" implies forcible persuasion.
But the use of force to persuade is not the essence of fascism. Fascism
governing system where the population can own property privately but the
said property is dictated by the State. Most countries are fascistic.
Only because you've taken a single attribute of Fascism and taken it to be a

Thank you, Brent, for this. ;-) I was trying to highlight the behavior

Don't know how Japan handled it, but imagine that it would've run along similar lines.
High efficiency, high productivity, lowers unemployment, automatically restrains budding
monopolies... all the kind of things the west proclaims to want today; even though
history should at some point teach us what this means, we don't seem to get it or don't
Nazism was not Fascism. It borrowed from Fascism but it added mystic racism, Hitler cult,
