The 14 Defining Characteristics Of Fascism, by Dr Lawrence Britt: "1. Powerful and Continuing Nationalism -Fascist regimes tend to make constant use of patriotic mottos, slogans,symbols, songs, and other paraphernalia. Flags are seen everywhere, as are flag symbols on clothing and in public displays.

"2. Disdain for the Recognition of Human Rights - Because of fear of enemies and the need for security, the people in fascist regimes are persuaded that human rights can be ignored in certain cases because of 'need.' The people tend to look the other way or even approve of torture, summary executions, assassinations, long incarcerations of prisoners, etc...."

It can all be summed up as 'war abroad and repression at home', with the purpose of entrenching power and privilege.
