#3 No, he's splitting a hair here: In socialism, the means of production is owned and run by the state. In facism, MOP is privately owned, but run by the state.
I know, big freakin' difference. The point is in fascism, you're allowed to be out-and-out wealthy, but in socialism eveybody's completely equal.
Yeah. Hoo Ha.

#4 In socialism the workers control the means of production; the state controls the workers; and the nomenklatura controls the state.

In fascism the corporations control the means of production; ; the state controls the corporations; and the nomenklatura controls the state.

That should clear it up for you.

#5 Which is why Fascism is the 'right' wing of the Left versus Socialism which is the 'left' wing of the Left.

#6 Good question PK2. It seems to me they are both on the same end of the spectrum--on the left with the distinctions mentioned by Dr. White.
