How far is a corporatist from a fascist?

I'm not really into semantics, CB ... one word descriptions of entire societies are inherently inaccurate.  I spoke my piece in 87 words ... if I could've said it right in less I would've.

But to indulge your appetite for inaccuracy, take a look at the Andrew O post above ... you could say they have both differences and commonalities.  Picture a Venn diagram with overlapping circles ... as your homework exercise for today try drawing one labeled as you see it.

Well said Finster.

A Venn diagram might be tricky because these are multidimensional issues covering economics, political and financial.

I posit that us commoners have been shortchanged and shackled by Financialism.

Yes, Finster, you always say things well, and your 87 words were powerful and appreciated. But I smile broadly when you say you are not into semantics.There was a time when I accused you of being the most pedantic hairsplitter with words that I had ever encountered.

Yo ... so we'd really need a multidimensional Venn diagram!

The mind reels ...
