Socialism, Fascism, and the Rise of American Totalitarianism




As socialist policies, leaders, and ideas continue to proliferate exponentially in the United States, including an increasingly concerning espousal of socialist objectives by corporate America, it is important to understand socialism’s relationship to fascism. Despite constant assertions coming from the progressive left that fascism is equivalent to conservatism, it is fascism and socialism that have historically represented two nearly identical sides of the same coin, and conservatism that has championed the individual liberties, property rights, and civil freedoms the rabid left now finds abhorrent.

Fascism and socialism unify around one defining ideology: social revolution, and subsequent totalitarian control over state policy and social consciousness. Merriam-Webster defines fascism as “A political philosophy, movement, or regime…that exalts nation and often race above the individual and that stand for a centralized autocratic government headed by a dictatorial leader, severe economic and social regimentation, and forcible suppression of opposition.”
