Fascism is recognized to have first been officially developed by Benito Mussolini, who came to power in Italy in 1922. To sum up fascism in one word would be to say "anti-liberalism".

...............Socialism and Democracy. Political doctrines pass; peoples remain. It is to be expected that this century may be that of authority, a century of the "Right," a Fascist century."

Public Option finding support.

Congress is working to pass a health care bill while still trying to stay fed by the pharma lobbyists. Several polls show growing support for a government-run health plan. A public option now wins majority support from the public.
While Americans are still fighting over the details and President Obama's handling of the issue, majorities now support a public option and a mandate that all Americans purchase health insurance.
Growing support especially among independents and senior citizens has become a major force supporting the Democratic progressive agenda.
Support for Obama may be slowing in some areas but at the same time his approval ratings are growing with independents and senior citizens, both influential voting blocks.
The growing support among senior citizens is especially worrying for Republicans whose focus on “scaring the old folks” is a main leg of their platform
 While Obama’s approval ratings among Democrats fell since September the new strong Democratic stance on health care supported by the growing resentment of the public towards what is perceived as greedy insurance companies is rebuilding Obama’s support well beyond the 50% level heading back to the 60% range of the trend continues for another month.
The growing support for reform is lending support to the thought that Republicans are being marginalized by their continued “Party of No” politics. Democrats have demonstrated willingness to compromise and the Republican image in the public eye is becoming poorer.
There a wide gulf between those who think the bill does not go far enough and those who think it goes too far. Does it cost too much in taxes? Will too many people still be left out? The progressive are still promising to stop any bill without a strong public option and if they stick to their guns no bill can pass without a public option.
