My son chided me for using the word fascist too freely and sent me to Wikkipedia for clarity on its corporatist roots. So on behalf of my son, Mussolini's fascism put the government between corporations & workers. The new corporatism pretends to be libertarian, individual rights vs the state, but it in fact uses the government to disenfranchise workers & voters. Harper, Bush, McCain are corporate socialists, ie they want big business to replace the government, except the government is us, citizens are sovereigns in democratic societies, or were. Until the new Con began.
