This paper focuses on fascism and explains how it promotes a belief in leaders, a belief in the value of a strong and unified nation, use of coordination and propaganda, a hatred of socialists and liberals and a hatred of Jews. The paper looks at Mussolini as a fascist dictator and then describes how the United states fits the definition of a fascist government. The paper argues that the sooner America realizes this dreadful fact, the sooner it will arm itself to make an end of American fascism masquerading under the guise of the champion of democracy.

From the Paper:

"The ideological component of fascism has often been neglected in favor of psychohistories of fascist leaders and morbid prose poems about national character. This is understandable, since one of the defining features of fascism is ideological syncretism. Usually, this has meant combining "socialism" with some form of nationalism. At the local level, fascism often had little theoretical content, beyond the privilege of beating people up with impunity. Nevertheless, fascism does have an intellectual history and the phenomenon, as a whole is not so diffuse as to defy definition. The distinctive thing about fascism, however, is that it has always been a doctrine for masters rather than followers. "
