It is interesting how may posters' definition of fascism includes "right wing" when the overwhelming historical examples that most everyone will agree as being fascist (Nazi Germany, USSR, Red China, Prewar Italy) were overwhelmingly "left". It seems to me that fascism requires socialism to work. Even the Spanish Inquisition depended on the Catholic Church, certainly a leftist organization based on leftist ideals (particularly for the time).

This really appears to the only accurate (and neutral) definition.
He got it right.
