In the mid-1930s, the great threat to Western democracies was the expansion of fascism, already on display in Germany and Italy. Fearing the same fate for Spain, volunteers from more than 50 countries came to fight.
The international brigades were disbanded and allowed to leave Spain in late 1938 when Franco's forces, supported heavily by Germany and Italy were on the verge of victory. Communism never was the opposite of the fascism of Mussolini's and Hitler's Brownshirts. Both possessed the same totalitarian nature. There was only one distinct difference between the two: Communism was internationalist, while fascism was ultranationalist.
American Fascism has proved it is not one bit interested in the democratic process! The rich of the world, who back the forceful fearful fascist governments to protect them, the capitalist who claim to be proponents and the supporters of democracy, are hypocrites. The fascist but so-called democratic governments will be no more democratic than the solidly communist countries when faced with total socialism.
