Fascism is based on a cult of personality. It says that the leader of the nation is at a level above ordinary men and is entitled to blind and total obedience and veneration.

Fascism is nationalistic. It believes that there is a group of people who are inherently superior to everyone else and that these people should rule over everyone else.
This seems like a fairly decent definition. And I would say a person who wants all those things is a "fascist"
