Social Democrats vs. Fascists

Trump and the Republicans act as if they want the US to become a fascist country ruled by wealthy people and corporations.

Fascism (Merriam-Webster): A political philosophy, movement, or regime that exalts nation and often race above the individual and that stands for a centralized autocratic government headed by a dictatorial leader, severe economic and social regimentation, and forcible suppression of opposition. Government regulation limits individual rights and freedoms.

Social Democracy: Incorporates both capitalist and socialist practices. The pursuit of profit is open to all, but it is regulated to improve people’s lives, guarantee personal freedom, and protect the environment.

  1. Sure, but take it further as it should be: the Democrats in recent power (the Clinton and Obama regimes) have been fully drenched in oil, centralized authority, war, corporate plunder, pro racial wealth gap policies, prisons, and fat-cat Wall Street soirees. Call it a more friendly, inclusive fascism (a la the 70s book by Bertram Gross) if you like.
