Robert Locke writes one of the most thorough and well thought-out articles on political economics I have read in a very long time. The words “socialism” and “fascism” have been abused by misuse for so long they have essentially lost their meaning. I prefer the word “statism”, as a blanket word to cover many kinds of political control (but I realize this is too broad to be effective.)
Locke uses the word “corporatism”, which has a very specific meaning and is far more accurate then any other word commonly used in the public. To Locke, corporatism is particularly dangerous because all nearly all-major political ideologies support it in one way or another. The slow drift towards corporatism has been steady sense the turn of the 19th century.
His article is a good read, be sure to check it out.
