Historian Robert Paxton, who is probably the world's pre-eminent scholar on the subject of how countries turn fascist.The word has been bandied about by so many people so wrongly for so long that, as Paxton points out, "Everybody is somebody else's fascist."
"Fascism is a system of political authority and social order intended to reinforce the unity, energy, and purity of communities in which liberal democracy stands accused of producing division and decline."
The U.S. is supporting of Communist Government,(ie-China), as well as lots of Fascist, Anti-Communist governments. The only requirement now seems to be not as to whether you are but are you pro-U.S.? As long as you're pro-U.S. you can be Fascist or Communist or who knows what, as long as you're at least pretending to be!
