    Can somebody help me? I always thought that Mussolini was a fascist due
to his having split with the communist party over the Italian communist
leadership refusing to play up to the Italian WWI veterans. On the other
hand the German leadership at that time were the Nazis or National Socialist
Party and not Fascist at all. My reference for this is what I remember of
the history of that time and Frederick Von Hayek's book THE ROAD TO SERFDOM.
    Today I am hearing that term thrown around in ways don't suggest those
definitions at all.
