Funny thing is, if you read the Doctrine of Fascism by Benito Mussolini (the original Italian fascism from the mid 1920's), you find a governmental structure oddly similar to what we have today. He advocated for "corporatism" - big business, big government, and big labor coordinating their resources to advance the state's agenda. Although there was "democracy", it consisted of checking a box and voting for one or more candidates who differed little from each other.

The variation today, I suppose, is a troika of big business, big government, and big unions working to serve themselves and screw the working man.

And there was little substantive difference between Whaley and Wagner.
