  1. Fascism and Nazism are still different ideologies, do not confuse them.

    Fascism is an ideology spread primarily in Mussolini's Italy, and, according to some opinion, also in Franco's Spain and Salazar's Portugal. Its main features are:

    1) The absolutization of the state as the driving force of society. The individual is just a cog of it, living only for the sake of his nation.

    2) Elitism and denial of any form of equality. People are recognized as unequal by nature, and the presence of an elite in society is a natural and positive moment.

    3) Militarism. The state is alive as long as it expands. Every citizen is obliged to participate in the war. War has a purifying effect, leading to the survival of the best, and is good for society.

    4) Corporatism. The largest corporations become the leading subject of the economy. The state largely acts as a conduit for their interests, but it can interfere in their activities and direct them. Representation of interests is carried out not through Parliament, but through centralized trade unions that are subordinate to the leader, but keep him informed of the situation in his industry, helping him make the right decisions.

    5) Conservatism. Absolutization of traditional values and religion.

    Fascism is not about genocide, ethnic discrimination, or the occult. The latter is Nazism, in simple terms, although some common features are present.
