Fascist

A person or group that believes in or promotes a political system characterized by extreme nationalism. When fascism emerged in the early 20th century, it rejected both left-wing and right-wing thought and advocated a system in which the citizens of a nation work together for a common goal (usually under the command of a strong leader). Fascists are noted for corporatist economic policies, in which interests of the state, businesses, and workers cooperate to set policies. They are strongly associated with racism and/or expansionism.
