    Libertarian socialists dont want a workers government. They don't want any government. They are anarchists.
    Liberty without socialism is privilege, injustice; Socialism without liberty is slavery and brutality

    Excuse me Franco supported the Monarchy,was a Monarchist until the day he died .The problem was for Franco that the King couldn't control the Revolution.

    International Brigades sided with the Republicans.Stalin Betrayed the Revolution and strangled it helping Franco and Hitler ,directly saving Spainish capitialism.

    Yet, it's the left that strives for increased government control of almost every facet of society.
    I think you'll find that for every instance the government has asserted control, it has done so because the private sector has dropped the ball. For example, there would be no Medicare if the private sector had not wanted to insure only the young and healthy. There would be no mine inspectors if the mining companies had made the mines safe to work in. There would be no meat inspectors if the meat packers didn't believe it was okay to sell green meat. There would be no FAA if airliners didn't keep falling out of the sky. Etc. etc. etc. I think you're getting the idea.

    In USA and in whole world.

    In USA fascism uses some other kind of populism, but is right wing.

    If in USA the whole politics scene is right wing is not our problem, at all.

    Just goes to show that some liberals are just as ignorant of what a fascist is as some conservatives.....such as yourself.
    The real harm is to our children. As long as we remain suspicious of the wrong people, predators will continue to have free reign to abuse innocent children. If they remain free from scrutiny because everyone else is focusing on gays and lesbians, more young lives will continue to be shattered and more parents will suffer the agonizing heartache of learning that they trusted someone who destroyed their child’s future.

    Soooooo you want to abolish "government" and replace it with a "workers government"? How does one qualify to be a "worker"? How does a people's government differ from a "workers government"? Other than everybody makes the same amount for their work. And if society is "self regulating", what do you need a "workers government" to do with themselves?

    ????? So you think "populism" is fascism? Well I certainly wouldnt deny that the right in the US favors "populism" while the left favors statism, But thats not fascism.

    Wrong


    The root of the word comes from Italian used to define the government of Fransisco Franco which was....wait for it.....socialist.

    It has been used also to define the one time government of Spain and especially Hitler's Nazi government in Germany.

    You must have forgotten that Nazi stands for "National Socialist Party".

    Fascism is LEFT WING
