Communism vs. Fascism, Communism and Fascism are what?
All right so lets start with the basics. Communism, is a political system that the people govern. Both stateless and classless. Of course this has never happened before. As for Fascism in a political system, it’s a very different system. It’s based on one charismatic leader who has complete authority. Typically advisers are not picked based on election but by merit. Now that we have a bit of a background, we can talk about some differences.
Either type of government can affect personal lives of people.
For example communism is based on the people, therefore there is equality between everyone, no private properties, and common ownership of products. This means no one person owns something as just their own. This would affect many people who may not agree or agree. Now for Fascism. In this form of government, it is a basically a centralized government. It is called a planned economy. “Anti-democratic, meritocratic, extreme nationalism, militarism, racism (Nazism).”
Communist views the economy in a different way, where economic planning makes planning and decisions. This regards “investment, production and resource allocation.” Instead of money, they plan in physical units. Most decisions are made by a community in whole not separate. Both input and output are decided by the State. Another unique feature in a communist society is that the prices are regulated by the State and have absolutely no concern for the actual price of items. In other words they do what some call rationing. In a command planning economy there would no currency. If there were to be it would be for accounting. In this society, when you need to buy something you would allocate services or goods. Now as for the Fascists view on the economy, things are privately owned. The states will edict the investments and outputs. Most planning is based on the labor output other than money.
Countries types of views can be different between both. Fascists are nationalists. They will to a great degree identify with other Nationalistic nations. Fascists disagree and do not trust internationalism. Very rarely do the go with international agreements. This proves they do not believe in the concept of international law. They believe war to be good for the nations morale. Through war they can gain glory. In the eyes of the Fascists war has no negative effect on the economy.
In the eyes of the communist, they see themselves to be in solidarity with other Communists. Unlike Fascists who trust other nations that are nationalistic, Communists would not trust other nations that are nationalistic. They strongly disagree with “big business.” Communism as a whole is an international movement. Communist view on war is slightly different than the Fascists view. They believe it should be avoided but that it is good for the economy. Its “Spurring production.”
One other difference is the means of control. Communist theoretically has no state control, whereas Fascism uses direct force. Some examples are secret police, concentration camps, intimidation, and murder. There is no leader in a communist society, whereas one person, a dictator, directs a fascist’s government. These are just a few of the differences in the types of government.
