I actually don’t agree with the framing of the term “fascism” here. I think Professor Gottfried defines the term too narrowly and that the term “fascism” has expanded – legitimately – beyond simply the name of the Italian post World War 1 futurist political cult. Gottfreid also holds pretty closely to the 20th Century Left-Right continuum which for the most part I reject.
