Well, I hate evil. I hate Tofu. Therefore evil must be made of tofu, and since Hitler was a vegetarian, therefore evil, clearly he was made of Tofu. If we keep at it, kids, we'll have all the mysteries of the universe solved by the time this topic reaches 1000.

I'm not sure I can argue with this logic

this discussion makes about as much sense as the current health care debate in the US.

K, sorry, it got a little detailed up there. Quick summary for the younger generation:

Health Care = Socialist = Fascist = Hitler = Evil = Tofu = Makes people Healthy, though Evil = no Need for Health Care = LOL @ Canada.

Make sense?

Fascist states and socialist dictatorships are both totalatarian systems, and to that extent they may have a lot in common. But philosophically they are not the same at all.

Staying on-topic is so over-rated.

Fascism is not just a word for nasty people you don't like. It is a Holy Roman Empire of an ideology, stranded mysteriously in the age of bombs and mass media. It probably hasn't gone away, it's just that Hitler is the example that always springs to mind. I could think of others. Franco's Spain, Mussollini's Italy, Peron's Argentina.
Mussollini, the father of fascism, was a socialist.
Even after splitting with the party organization he declared, "Whatever happens you won't lose me, twelve years of my life in the party ought to be sufficient guarantee of my socialist faith. Socialism is in my blood." Also saying, "I am and shall remain a socialist and my convictions will never change. They are bred into my very bones."
