Anyone familiar with pre war european politics would know that the fascists and communists competed for the same voters who iften switched allegiances and membership between the two given that they are variations on a theme.

Which does not actually conflict with my point, even if true. In all cases, fascist governments have depended crucially on support from the "respectable" middle classes. This is simple fact.

They never work. I wonder whose fault it is in Brazil. The US? Not real socialism? The sinister forces of capitalism?
