When it comes to what you think fascism is, no, I have no idea. I have an idea of what I think it is (Definition 1), but you would just dispute it, and you'd win, because you're setting the definitions and you won't pin anything down, so you can't lose.
You think fascism is limited to theory and can't be/hasn't been ever practiced?

I am most definitely not controlling the definition in the dictionary I linked to, I'm just saying that I agree that that is the meaning of fascism, that's what I think fascism is.

You won't pin down what you think fascism is, so you can dispute anyone who says anything is fascist and can't lose.

No one knows (or is allowed to know) what you're talking about, except you. It's not a conversation; it's flatulence.
  

This moral relativism of yours is exactly what lets government take this freedom, then that freedom, until we have lost them all.

This definition of fascism clearly defines what I think fascism is, as a theory and in practice-

What I disputed was Red's assertion that the collection of taxes is "fascist" or somehow defines a fascist government or whatever he meant.

If you are being robbed at gunpoint, you are being threatened with bodily harm or death, in which case you can shoot the thief.


Is being put in a jail followed by prison incarceration with known violent offenders, “bodily harm?”

Because that’s what I’m threatened with if I don’t pay my taxes.
