>Some post-1945 historical examples of Fascism.
<Rigid one-party dictatorship?
Check. (Republicans and Democrats are the same party: the party of Capital. They only present the illusion of being opposed to each other as theatre for the masses.)
<forcible suppression of opposition?
Check. (Ludlow massacre of 1914, 1943 massacre of Black protestors in Detroit, MOVE bombing, COINTELPRO, police brutalization of the Seattle and L.A. protests against W.T.O. globalization in 1999, etc.)
<private economic enterprise under centralized government control?
