The economic component of fascism was the ends to which the violence, and terror were but a means. The point of the marches, pogroms, and demagoguery was to establish an economic system totally under the heal of the ruling party, the state.
We need to take back the definition of fascism and put it back where it belongs, with the collectivist ideologies of the Left alongside communism and socialism.
The left's assault on the English language continues, most recently with their attempt to redefine the word "infrastructure". "Control the language and you control the debate," is an axiom in the worlds of politics, the law, and anywhere else where influencing thought is considered valuable. The left, being well aware of this has been working for decades redefining words. Terms like racist, fascist, and justice have been so far removed from their meanings as to become unrecognizable to those of us who know the original, correct definitions.
