Capitalism is both encouraging and embarrassed about fascism. It is the extreme right-wing product of an alliance between the national government and corporate giants. In fascist nations, the way the military-industrial complex rises to power is by the national treasury going bankrupt funding it. The U.S. has had a long history of large corporations conspiring to manipulate our national government. Currently it is very apparent.
Hitler rose to power in Germany partly because he was "morally" and financially backed by the likes of Henry Ford, the DuPont family, American banks, etc. We had a Nazi youth training camp near Grafton, Wisconsin (Camp Hindenburg). The most prominent national hero of the time, Charles Lindberg, openly and eagerly supported Hitler. A group of American industrialists and right-wingers tried to get General Smedley Butler to join them in overthrowing the FDR administration and establishing a fascist government in Washington. Check the history books. It is there in clear fact.
After World War II, right-wingers had a Congressional committee bring to trial anyone who had any contact with the Communist Party in America. Remarkably, inasmuch as we fought a horrible war against fascism and Nazism, none of the capitalists who helped Mussolini and Hitler to power were ever tried.
Today, we have illegally invaded a sovereign nation, Iraq, gave sweetheart and no-bid contracts to Bush-Cheney buddies, have run up trillions of dollars in national debt, watched our economy fall to the brink of disaster, and Americans are fearful of their future. Yet to mention right-wing fascism possibilities is demeaned by the corporate media in the U.S.
"...we face the danger of a right-wing take-over and eventually a fascist society." -Martin Luther King, Jr.
