New Deal and Fascism

My comments - I agree that the economic structure was somewhat similar to fascism. OTOH I would not call FDR fascist. He was elected, and he didn't try to stop future elections (no auto-coup for him), he also didn't commit the level of abuse that real fascists are prone to do, and I don't think he had the same sort of hyper-nationalism. Fascism is not just "nationalist corporate socialism", it includes that but having that doesn't mean you have a fascist state if you have a relatively free democracy.
