Fascism

The political and social philosophy of Fascism centers on an individual dictatorial leader who exercises significant control over the lives of the people and initiates economic and social authority focusing on fervent nationalism and the interests of the state over those of the individual. Often characterized by violent suppression of human rights and basic freedoms, Fascism gained attention around the world during the government of Benito Mussolini in Italy from 1922 to 1943. Mussolini led Italy into World War II as an Axis partner of Nazi Germany and Imperial Japan.
