  1. Clarity – communism & fascism are not poles apart. They are (ugly) twin sisters. The attempt to bookend political discussions with one or the other is to dissuade one from rational thought, as if these (or some variant) were the only options available. One should never be sucked into that realm of lies. Both Hitler & Mussolini were socialists who embraced fascism, simply because communism was competition for their own followers, and for represented a contest for ultimate control. Had the fascism brand franchise not been available, it is quite likely both would have found communism workable for their plans.

    To quote Miss Rand:
    “It is obvious what the fraudulent issue of fascism versus communism accomplishes: it sets up, as opposites, two variants of the same political system; it eliminates the possibility of considering capitalism; it switches the choice of ‘Freedom or dictatorship?’ into ‘Which kind of dictatorship?’ — thus establishing dictatorship as an inevitable fact and offering only a choice of rulers. The choice — according to the proponents of that fraud — is: a dictatorship of the rich (fascism) or a dictatorship of the poor (communism). That fraud collapsed in the 1940’s, in the aftermath of World War II. It is too obvious, too easily demonstrable that fascism and communism are not two opposites, but two rival gangs fighting over the same territory — that both are variants of statism, based on the collectivist principle that man is the rightless slave of the state — that both are socialistic, in theory, in practice, and in the explicit statements of their leaders — that under both systems, the poor are enslaved and the rich are expropriated in favor of a ruling clique — that fascism is not the product of the political ‘right,’ but of the ‘left’ — that the basic issue is not ‘rich versus poor,’ but man versus the state, or: individual rights versus totalitarian government — which means: capitalism versus socialism.”
