Fascism ≠ Socialism, alright?

Fascism (noun): a governmental system led by a dictator having complete power, forcibly suppressing opposition and criticism, regimenting all industry, commerce, etc., and emphasizing an aggressive nationalism and often racism. I.E.: EVERYTHING IS MINE.

Socialism (noun): a theory or system of social organization that advocates the vesting of the ownership and control of the means of production and distribution, of capital, land, etc., in the community as a whole. I.E. EVERYTHING IS OURS.

These are not the same thing, alright?


Now, we can move on and start calling our President liberal-with-socialist-leanings instead of a fascist. At least that way we can be, you know, factual.
