There's been a lot of talk about "fascism" lately, what with "fascist" becoming the GOP's word of choice to describe the president. In the midst of heated political rhetoric, sometimes things can get a bit confusing. So I've written a brief, helpful guide for understanding what is and isn't fascism.
The following things are fascism:
Universal health care coverage
A 39% top tax rate
Boosting funding for voluntary national service programs
The following things are not fascism:
Idenfinite detention without trial
“Disappearing” suspected criminals
Warrantless surveillance of American citizens
