Social democracy and fascism were both the result, according to Berman, of long standing intellectual debates within the left over the relationship between economics and politics. Both were movements created by socialists who had grown weary of the passivity of traditional socialism as set out by Engels, and explicated by Kautsky. Social fascism was a theory supported by the Communist International (Comintern) and affiliated communist parties during the early s which held that social democracy was a variant of fascism because it stood in the way of a dictatorship of the proletariat, in addition to a shared corporatist economic model.. At the time, leaders of the Comintern such as Joseph Stalin and Rajani Palme Dutt. The three main currents in twentieth century political thought and practice "fascism, liberalism, and social democracy", emerged not in isolation from one another, but rather as competing and conflicting ideologies connected with particular social strata in different parts of Central Europe.

Communism (from Latin communis, "common, universal") is a philosophical, social, political, economic ideology and movement whose ultimate goal is the establishment of a communist society, namely a socioeconomic order structured upon the ideas of common ownership of the means of production and the absence of social classes, money and the state..

Many have been quick to seize upon the oft-misunderstood term to describe Donald Trump, presenting the Republican presidential candidate as a uniquely menacing figure along the lines of Franco or Mussolini..

European social democracy and the American New Deal developed as left-leaning correctives, with the state in each case assuming an affirmative role in subsidizing social. The Communist decision and its aftermath were more the effect than the cause of the new line that German Social-Democracy “had developed into social-fascism.” That line would have gone into effect whatever might have happened that May Day, but the special circumstances in Berlin certainly lent themselves to a bloody dramatization of the theory. Posts about Social-Fascism written by Victor Vaughn. In , when Reagan was again preaching the anti-Communist crusade, Henri Bernard, Professor Emeritus at the Royal Military School of Belgium, published a book to spread the following urgent message: `The Communists of are the Nazis of We are weaker in front of Moscow than we were in August in front of Hitler.’.
