History Lesson #2
Fascism: 1. the doctrines, methods, or movement of the Fascisti. 2. a system of government characterized by rigid one-party dictatorship, forcible suppression of opposition, private economic enterprise under centralized government control, belligerent nationalism, racism and militarism. 3a) a political movement based on such policies. b) fascist behavior. See Nazi.
Dictators make all kinds of charming deals… we must be vigilant and empathetic when it is revealed that “the deals” do not reflect or benefit the people of our communities.
