Hi meekerdb So much irritation about my use of the word fascism ! There must have been a dozen postings complaining about its use here.
Could that not be a sign that liberalism, so prevalent here, is a hidden form of fascism ? It seeks to control us. To change us and society to conform to its agenda through law.

Hi, But the use of force to persuade is not the essence of fascism. Fascism is a governing system where the population can own property privately but the use of 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 definition. Fascism is the idea that a nation is a kind of super-being in which labor, industry, and government are *bound together into one* (hence the name) and the life of citizens takes meaning from how they serve their function as an element of The State. This was further taken to imply that superior, i.e. Fascist, nations should bring this superior culture to other inferior, i.e. non-Fascist, nations by armed conquest.
