Fascism and Communism by Balddog4 Fascism and Communism by Balddog4
Here's another deviation for you guys with very little brain cells to bash. Because if you guys can't tell that both facsism and communism belong on the same side of the spectrum, then you are missing something very important. Now for those who don't know what I'm talking about I'll tell you.

When you take an economical course in collage, they talk about the spectrum. On the left side is communism, and on the right side is Fascism, and in the middle is democracy. Now this is what they, and when I mean they I mean the "professors," are going to tell you that Communism and Fascism are completely different from each other.

The truth is that they are not. They are the same because they both want complete controll with the economy.

Communism = everyone is equal (within the system [as long as they fit the requirements]) but some are more equal than others

Fascism = everyone is equal (within the system [as long as they are aryan and fit the requirements]) but some are more equal than others.

The Xenophobia and race orientation of Nazi Germany and other fascist countries were more obvious because they modeled their policies on that of their idol and hero, Adolf Hitler who was a particular brand of communist dictator. Just because the dictator is different, it doesn't mean that the basis of the system is different. Also, Communist Russia didn't have a Goebbels.

Communist Russia also had their own xenophobia although the allies didn't make a big deal of it in the media since their enemy was Fascism and Russia was their ally. Stalin was known to have slaughtered millions of Jews within his own regime and Russians even today are very race orientated and biased.

If you looked carefully you would see that the so-called big differences between the two are only at face value and that there really aren't any differences at all.


If you don't beleive me then look it up. Beacause I doubt that most of you, if not all, who replies to this even visited a Communist controll economy. I haven't but unlike some of you guys I take time to listen and to do research. If you ever talk to someone who once lived in a Communist economy from Cuba, Vietnam or North Korea, they are going to tell you that it's not an economy to have. My sister had a teacher who family was from Vietnam and he told the class on how poor they all were. He also told the class on how he had to stole a chicken to feed his family. And the thing about living in a Communist country is that if the government finds out, they will kill you. My sister teacher family eventually left Vietnam and he told the class that he is never going back to vietnam ever.

So once more I'm going to tell you to do research. Most of you people who disagree with me and try to tell me "facts" never even told me that what they are saying is legit. Do your research.

I thought they were different. That's why Nazi Germany and Stalin's Russia didn't get along?

They are different in the way they do things, but the ideological side of Fascism and Communism are the same. I don't know if you knew this or not, but at one time Hitler and Stalin got along. In fact when Hitler invaded Poland, he wasn't alone. Stalin also invaded Poland at the same time as well. That was a result of the Stalin-Hitler pact of 1939. It was when the Nazi's invaded Russia that Stalin retaliated.

I looked on Google and it said fascism is basically a dictatorship. I guess that's what Communism is too.

As you have said yourself. Do your research. Also how can you have a strong opinion such as these matters without ever being there. I tell you because i have been. I will tell you my truth. If you are upper class to rich then certainly western economies are the place to live. You will live like a king compared to the life you would have in a communist regime. However if you are poor in socialist/communist regimes then you will have free education for your children, healthcare, job and something to eat. If you are poor in the US or EU just pray to God to be healthy, pray to God that your children dont get killed in gang fights or become drug dealers, live with one dollar per month etc etc. It is just a matter of perspective. Dont be narrow minded. Both regimes failed because of the extensive lies and propaganda behind them and the inability to serve their people needs. In western capitalism there is a crucial mass of people (the majority) which stands for them and enjoys their merits. However if you see the bigger picture 10% of the global population has everything while 90% has not nothing. THINK before you speak. Dont get for granted what is your position in the world

... Okay... This... No...

First off Communism is an extreme form of Liberalism, also known as "radicalism." In which there is rapid change within the government, society, as well as economy. This makes sense as within the book "The Communist Manifesto" describes how the Proletariat overthrow the Bourgeois in a sudden and -I dare say- violent revolution. With the over through of the Bourgeois came the dictatorship of the Proletariat, in which they would collect and control all good, businesses, and land. This means that everything would be under the control of the state. Everyone would be given equal amounts of goods as well as serves, no one was without their basic needs. Everyone was equal under the law; their where no exceptions; meaning age, sex, religion, ect meant shit to the government, as you as an individual was now part of the collective whole. Everyone was dependent of one another and everything that an individual did only contributed to the nation as a whole. As in they were part of a collective.

Now with Fascism is an extreme form of Conservatism, as known as "Reactionary." In this case, the government doesn't take kindly to change and instead would rather revert back to "the good old days." Meaning as the example would be Nazi Germany; as Hitler wanted to bring Germany back to it's former glory and power. Fascism is also an "elitist" society which means that that there are a select few individuals or groups who are deemed "superior" than others who live within the nation or surrounding nations. For example the "Aryans" believed to be superior to the Jews. Another point to look at is that Fascism believes private ownership. In which businesses an company's had the power to do what they wanted as they wanted, with the government interfering at a minimum. As with Oskar Schindler was able to have his own private business. 

Yes you may look at similarities at Hitler's Nazi Germany and Stalinist Russia as they were both were totalitarian governments that used scare tactics and propaganda in order to control the people, but that's really where the similarities end. Communism and Fascism are on the extreme opposites of both the economic and social spectrum. With Communism believing in economic and social equality, Fascism believes in an elitist society and private ownership. You must also take into consideration that the classical Communism written by Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels, after the equal distribution among the people there was suppose to be an eventual dissolve of the proletariat totalitarian government. Meaning there wouldn't be a need for a government because everyone's needs would've been met. So I believe it's fair to say that no, Communism and Fascism are not the same but instead on extreme opposites of both the economic and social spectrum.

Fascism isn't Nazim, Nazism is fascism.
Also, there are differences between Communism and fascism. Communism is an economic and political system which often involves fascism. Fascism is a dictatorship. In other words, Communism is fascism and other stuff.

1) fascism =/= nazism
2) there's a difference anyway. The main common trait between nazism and fascism is mongering wars in order to expend territories and commit slaughters (the holocaust started during WW2) while communist massacres and genocides all took place during peacetime. In some cases, like the Moscow trials and the red Khmer government, war even put an end to massacre.

And let's see here they been destroying the lives of Roma's, Jews, Ukrainians, Crimean Tatars, and Russian Ukrainians in the Donbass/Crimea! So yeah that's pretty much what Shugezburger A.K.A. Hitler and his fellow Nazi's did to them all over Europe! My! My! Look's like my Social Studies Teacher were correct in using the bent ideological spectrum for analysis of Communism/Fascism! They are twin demons! Different ideological approach but the same end!

The author of this nonsense is just ignorant.

Dude, you know that communism is a utopian society in which no need to work, and where there are no chiefs? Communism was not invented in the USSR! Communism was invented by the English writer Thomas More, and then it was perfected by the French.

The Soviet Communists had built a totalitarian society, but they did not build communism! And they haven't burned other people in ovens like Hitler. Therefore, to equate communism and fascism can only uneducated idiot.

Go back to school, child!

I am neither a Communist nor a Fascist but some people seriously need to learn that not all Communism is Stalinism and not all Fascism is Nazism. Look into the Communist Manafesto and Mein Kampf. Marxism is a form of Communism and is completely different from Stalinism. Learn more.

There can be overlaps between all forms of government. We might as well say Stalin was a reactionary conservative like Republicans if ye would squint enough. There is a difference between the two. Alliances on the other hand? Well let's just say that those have been formed in recent times against certain edge lords.

That is what I am agreeing with you here. There are indeed differences and that is ok. It would be boring if everything was the same. Even in ideals there is differences like between Socialists and Communists. I was actually going to write a piece on socialism, National Socialism, and international socialism.

Communism is the end of wars within a single biological specie by unification of all states in one, it's not not important which state will became Bismark of planet scale - USA or USSR.

Fascism it's same corporativism as cancervatism: fascists consecrate bureaucrats to the master race, when cancervatives consecrate clerks of private sector to the master race - and it's nothing about nationalism.

Actually you are confusing State Socialism with Communism. Since the creator of Communism was Karl Marx, I would assume that the only way to know Communism would be to read up on his book the Communist Manifesto. Basically Karl Marx stated the Communist Society as being a "Stateless, Classless, Moneyless Society" where the working class collectively owned the means of production. Quite different from the authoritarian empires of Stalin and Hitler. 

The thing about these Communist nations (U.S.S.R., Cuba,China etc.) was that the revolutionaries in those countries tried to achieve Communism by over throwing the previous governments and seizing state power, assuming "that they had seized power unwillingly  and for a limited time. and that just round the corner there lay a paradise where human beings would be free and equal" (1984). After which they did, they assumed a one-party dictatorial state, thus creating a power gap, because as 1984 states: "No one ever seizes power with the intention of relinquishing it". And in my opinion it's more fair to blame the Authoritarian factions within the ideal of Communism/Marxism or even Socialism (like Leninism,Stalinism,Authoritarian Socialism.etc) than to blame the whole ideology itself.
