you seem to have your own definition of fascist...
the farm program that came out of FDR administration... were to keep the food supply constant and full. one often overlooks the fact that the agricultural sector was in a depression 10 years prior to the great depression (essentially since the end of WWI... if you understand basic economics the slope of the demand curve informs you pretty directly ...it make
good sense to limit supply in some manner. in the case of agricultural product[ion] this almost always means... limiting product boost ...producers bottom line....
FDR also decreased the cost of food for industrial workers by forcing most farm families of his day into perpetual poverty. He accomplished this feat with marketing orders, crop allotments and artificially low floors under crop prices that often were less than world market prices. The only thing the farmer looked forward to every year was the same grinding poverty. Is it any wonder that there are only about 500,000 fulltime American farmers today? I am not going to argue the "something must be done" aspect of your post. Clearly something was needed. The problem is that all political ideas that become reality next step is reactionary resistance to change.
My definition of Fascism is a political ideology that venerates state power and or works to dramatically reinforce the power of the state at the cost of individual freedom. In a nut's shell this is what FDR's farm program did. Moreover every Fascist movement is preceded by a vanguard of true believers inspired by a charismatic personality who has either no morality or else a severely limited morality, while at the same time the leader possesses unlimited ambition. A good example is Obama’s acceptance speech at the 2008 Democrat Convention in Denver, but I digress.
I’ve posted the Nazi Party platform here before, and pointed out the numerous similar and even identical platform planks contained in Fascist, Liberal, Social Democrat, Socialist, and National Socialist political platforms, as well as in all Communist Party dogma. I am not responsible if people refuse to look at the evidence for themselves. But in the interest of fair play I wish to point out that the only Fascist aspect in most Conservative dogma is Nationalism.
However, let it be noted that the German Fascist party platform called for the breakup of large department stores like… well like the left wing nuts favorite whipping boy Wal-Mart, and redistribute these resources to small “middle class” mom and pop shops and stores. It also called for an end to “rent slavery“, and “interest slavery” and middle or upper class investments like stocks and bonds. The German Fascist also wanted to seize and redistribute un-used or excess farm land to the people who actually worked or who wanted to work the land, (your going to like this one Crouching Panther) this its sort of like the US did with Indian land. You can also think of it as the Lincoln Administration’s promise of, “40 acres and a mule.”
The German Fascist party instituted the first official May Day holiday for German workers. The German Fascist party advocated the seizure of excess profits as well as the seizure of all profits made by defense industries, arguing that defense industry profits are only possible because German solders died to create these profits and that made these profits immoral. Finally the German Fascist party unleashed an army of state bureaucrats to boss, regulate, spy on, and save German businesses from itself and to insure that they were acting sufficiently Fascist in a responsible and National Socialist sort of way.
Then there is the “Healthy Living or Environmental” aspect of German Fascism, personified today by the war on soda, on fat, alcohol, sugar, meat, big oil, all coal, any franking, HFCS, caffeine, CO2, tobacco, obesity, GMOs as well as the war FOR animal rights and organic agriculture. I could go on and on but I won’t. I think that the people who are paying attention get my drift. If you don’t, in short Fascism calls on its followers to close both their eyes and their minds and follow the party and its leader in blind and obedient lockstep, right off any cliff that gets in their way.
