Default Fascism: Is it a good system
Hi everyone. I am a history and economics major at my college and throughout the course of my studies I learned a lot about different economic and political systems, and one that I was always found really interesting was fascism. I know that typically people like to talk bad about fascism because of Hitler and Mussolini, but I got to thinking that besides those two bad apples, this system might have something to it.
Fascism basically offers an alternative to both laisse-faire capitalism and socialism. It offers a system based off the concept of "corporatism". Basically, it implies that the state will take a guiding hand in the economy through making corporate-state partnerships, something that is not all that uncommon today.
Fascism also offers a society built on the cultural norms of the nation, as well as a strong devotion to nationalism and the military.
So, I want to know what you think. Is fascism a workable system?
Note: Just for the record I am not a Nazi, nor am I defending the atrocities of the third Reich and other fascists.
