I'd just like to know. What is theexact definition of fascism? And how does ot connect with european nationalism (and mainly the austrian-hungarian monarchy around the end of the 19th and beginning and the first half of the 20th.).

Since I've seen many people acuse many others of faschistic intention, but for me it subconsciously connects with nationalsm.

  1. A system of government marked by centralization of authority under a dictator, stringent socioeconomic controls, suppression of the opposition through terror and censorship, and typically a policy of belligerent nationalism and racism. (from dictionary.com)

Easy enough definition. There is a dictator ship and they use nationalism and militarism to keep power. (this is from top of my head so please feel free to correct any mistakes) The 19th and 20th century was the rise of the Monarchs in Europe. It was after the Napoleonic wars that Prince Metternich redrew the map of Europe with great intention to Reinstate the Monarchs. However these Great Monarchies ruled multiple cultures that wished for their own national identity. And that is where the strong nationalism comes in that help start WWI. As far as relating it to nationalism. That would be correct, but it is nationalism to a very high degree. That is why Fascist societies were racist. so just keep that in mind. Hope I helped.

Eer, no it wasn't, it was the fall of Monarchs.

It was the rise of nationalism in the 19th century, starting with the French Revolution in 1792 but marked especially by the 1848 revolutions and the unifications of Germany and Italy under a nationalist banner.

And for fascism, I think this sums it up

Mussolini, The Political and Social Doctrine of FascismAnti-individualistic, the fascist conception of life stresses the importance of the State and accepts the individual only insofar as his interests coincide with those of the State, which stands for the conscience and the universal will of man as a historic entity....

The fascist conception of the State is all-embracing; outside of it no human or spiritual values can exist, much less have value....

Fascism is therefore opposed to that form of democracy which equates a nation to the majority, lowering it to the level of the largest number

Summed up, it means "not free" and "discrimination". So away with it! :)
