: : To me the question separating these two ideologies is the question of equality. Those who believe in equality are on the side of Communism; those who be;lieve in inequality are with the fascists.

: I think you're barking up the wrong tree using narrow dichotomies such as these.

: Fascism is a form of collectivism or 'tribalism' in that is subsumes each to all (the state, race and nation supposedly represent all) so does that mean its the same as communism which is also collectivism?

: Stay away from 'neato' pigeon holing - it'll lead you nowhere fast.

The two basic divisions are the political models of Sparta and of Athens. The former represents collectivization while the latter the importance of the individual.
