"The group is more important than the individual."

Fascism is historically centrist economically, culturally unitary and authoritarian.

Some form of Fascism was used by the National Socialists in Germany, where they wanted the national German group, or "Aryan people" to control and own the means of production among each other, organized within a populistic government.

But at the end, Fascism is essentially "The group is more important than the individual."

The symbol, representing fascism is a Fascie, looks like a strong branch made up of smaller sticks. It symbolizes that one stick(individual) will break, but all the sticks together(group) will stand strong.

The symbol representing National Socialism is a swastika, stolen from the Indo-Iranians symbol representing the stength of the "Aryan people(Indo-Iranians)".

At the end, Fascism essencially means that "The group is more important than the individual."

An autocratic philosophy of using brute force against opposition, typically with the excuse of being for the greater good of a nation or community, and the forced suppression of individual rights and freedoms to achieve those ends.
Hitler was a Fascist leader who dictated what people could read, what they could wear, where people could live, what people could own and how much, he forbade gun ownership, took control of businesses, indoctrinated school children, and any speaking out against Hitler or Germany resulted in death. In other words, fascism is bad.

From Dictionary.com

"A system of government marked by centralization of authority under a dictator, stringent socioeconomic controls, suppression of the opposition through terror and censorship, and typically a policy of belligerent nationalism and racism."

Sound like USA? Well let's have a look...

Dictator: George W. Bush
- America suppresses the opposition through media censorship. Anything the opposition says, America will use media to regard it as propaganda and therefore censor it.
America also uses Military as a method of terror to provoke the Middle Eastern countries such as Iraq and Iran. As for belligerent nationalism and racism, since 9/11 the American Government held an anti-muslim stance and used media to spread this idea. Publically they would appear to be accept of muslims but behind public eyes, their own agenda would tell a different story. For example the invasion of Iraq and seizure of their oil fields (What's wrong with giving the oil field back to the Iraqi people?), and possibly Iran to be next because of their nuclear capability. Despite the fact that America has their own nuclear capabilities far greater than any other nation.
The use of the media plays a strong role in fascism, especially in the developing of the belligerent nationalism and racism.

Example: The American government explaining to the world media their purpose in preparing their troops for a possible attack on Iran. Their concern being the nuclear capabilities of Iran. What they fail to mention is that on the other side of the world, from the Eastern point of view, America already has nuclear capabilities and enough of it to destroy their country with 1 word, and that word is "Fire!"
