Fascism is usually a term thrown about when the conversation has degenerated to name calling. The use of Fascism typically signals the end of debate and usually the beginning of tirade. I would urge the reader to assess the meaning of the word and then consider when and where to apply it.
Fascism is an authoritarian nationalist political ideology and mass movement that is concerned with notions of cultural decline or decadence, and which seeks to achieve a millenarian national rebirth by exalting the nation or race, as well as promoting cults of unity, strength and purity.
Various scholars attribute different characteristics to fascism, but the following elements are usually seen as its integral parts: nationalism, militarism, authoritarianism, populism, collectivism, statism, dictatorship, and economic planning. In addition, Fascism opposes conservatism, liberalism and communism.
I am not sure if technically the Chinese government is Fascist. I do know there are policies that violate what I consider acceptable freedoms of people. I also believe these government policies will ultimately hinder and endanger the current economic and material progress of the Chinese people.
