A lot of liberals are pushing the narrative that conservatives are fascists. I'm wondering, what was the economic platform of the original Italian fascists of WWII?
Hint: it wasn't capitalism.
authoritarianism. As in government owns the earnings of everyone? As in You may not drill for oil here, but can there? As in you may not defend yourself against violence of others - only the "authorities" may do that?

Equal representation in the media, in Hollywood, in academia and in public unions...?By all polls, the American people is approx. 40% conservative, 40% liberal and 20% moderate. Yet 90% of academia professors are liberal. How come?

I have been in many controversial political discussions on hub pages. I consider myself a centerist. I believe we need both some components of socialism to provide the things that we can't do as individuals and some componets of capitalism, but not enfettered capitalism. It seems that...
