I think it's because of the Nazis that I don't like Fascism. I know they corrupted it but I am a Gypsy and so it kinda killed it for me.

^That's the kind of bigotry I want to eliminate. Nazism is not fascism. Hitler based his government after Mussolini's, but the racism that he brought upon Europe is a disgusting, immoral act. I refuse to be associated with such crimes, especially when I get enough shit when I claim my half-German heritage.

The people that are calling you a nazi or racist because of your german heritage are hypocrites.

I hate racism, we're all created equal, why should someone treat someone else treat someone badly because they're different? I think some of you should look at this.

I remember when my teacher used to make fun of communists at all times calling certain students "commies" for doing looked-down-upon actions.

^Same type of thing... even though I fundamentally disagree with communism.
But it's still people using terms as political swearwords for anyone they don't like.

Truth be Told, Fascism is nowadays a controlled state in the world. As such, Facism at max is idiocracy. Not to say your Nazi's, but, if you remember a history lesson or what not... Have a Jewish Buisness, Jewish Voter, Jewish citizen in Hitlers veiw at the time was "Harmful to the whole" There go a thousand rights. Facism, I believe, as he said, limits the rights of humanity. Communism sides with idiocracy, the only point I see it prove that all countires need a leader. In the end, Fasicm is something that should be weak, controlled, but should not dissolve. As again, you could have free speach.. but cussing out the president infront of the whitehouse would be a bit.. akward. Also, Line of duty is a lie. Sure, everyone has a duty, but a Duty can't be accomplished if the main #1 point is that instead of being the lucky man that gets ajob and raises a family you end up being the one picked out of facism-ish hands and thrown out to war. Sure, you died for your country.. not the way you wanted. As such, you are limiting the rights of the world. Yet, Facism has to exist, weakly, though. As I believe a Represented Democracy based on little controlled veiws has its benefits. [Which is ever changing, as you can see, 500 years later they'll be talking about Greedism.. How corporate America changed the government with money] :S

Oh, Mickel, as you seem to be everywhere. racism is coldblooded, I know. I've experienced it. [I'm a muslim] and I know some German people who had Nazi Parents. Either way, I'm not saying Facism is Nazi land. I'm just saying it has its downsides, which I don't essentially like.

Fascism simply cannot exist in today's society, which is sad but true. People are too corrupt by power, which is WHY people like Hitler ruined fascism's name - power changes people. I wish it could - dearly! - but if it can't, I'll fight, and perhaps die, for the freedoms that we as Americans built our country on.
