Ah, good point. I have even seen "The Resistible Rise of Arturo Ui". I should have remembered.


So basically America (and various other Western democracies) currently have fascist governments - the twist being that this time around, hardly anyone realises the fact!

Not really. Basic to fascism was the idea that a nation was a super-organism and corporations, individuals, leaders, and the military were a bound together (fasci), each filling their function in the super-organism, to achieve national glory (mostly by conquering inferior and backward nations and bringing them fascism).

The U.S. pays lip service to individualism and turned corporations into 
indivduals.
