Fascism is a political ideology that, unfortunately, is mischaracterized by both media and academia. For example, Wikipedia describes fascism as, “A far-right, authoritarian, ultra-nationalist political ideology and movement characterized by a dictatorial leader, central autocracy, militarism, forcible suppression of opposition, belief in a natural social hierarchy, subordination of individual interests for the perceived good of the nation and race, and strong regimentation of society and the economy.”

The definition is mostly correct, except for the first words, claiming fascism is a “far right” ideology. Hitler was considered a fascist but his party, contrary to the political science experts (disguised as journalists), was far left. The Nazi Party is the Nationalist Socialist German Workers’ Party. Note the name “socialist,” an ideology of the left, not the right.
