Well according to York Vision we are :
"Fascism, in essence, promotes strong leadership, and a kind of group solidarity that ostracises those who do not conform."
He then goes onto to say this
"Many of the most revered team successes in history have come about
through the kind of fascist mentality that we are so quick to label
abhorrent and evil. Even more striking is the extent to which strong
sporting leaders are deified in our society, to such a degree that
society even encourages the very fascist characteristics we are
repeatedly forced to detest."
KT thinks those "fascist characteristics" could equally be applied to party politics, I dont think Mr Smith would say Ed Miliband/David Cameron/Nick Clegg are "fascists" (tho i could be wrong) , Strong leadership and teamwork are not exclusive to fascism.
