Mussolini, as a statist crony corporatist, found his model fit well with Nietche’s ubermensch thoughts and saw himself and a select group of elite (the other corporatists) as those who drove the state. In effect, they were not just businessmen, they were a new aristocracy. In the communist model, they would be dictators doing the dictating to the proletariat.
Fascism’s affinity with communism is seen in the early amity between Hitler and Stalin.
Mussolini wasn’t shy about the Fascist/Corporatist linkage: “Fascism should more appropriately be called Corporatism because it is a merger of state and corporate power”
But your observation still begs the question: Why do you believe Romney has an interest in consolidating state and corporate power?
Just because he has taken advantage of provisions in the tax code (whether we like the provisions or not) which are equally available to everyone else under similar circumstances, as defined by the IRS Code?
Romney "follows the law." He I imagine has been squeaky-clean "legal" in all his public conduct from Day One.
If we have a problem with the conduct, maybe we should be looking at the offending statute, not Romney's perfectly "legal" resort to it and dependence on it.
Of course, I do discern a difference between what is "legal" and what is "lawful." They are not necessarily the same.
But citizens must rely on what is "legal" for the conduct of their daily affairs.... Otherwise, they will be arrested, irrespective of whether their behavior is "lawful" (i.e., as our Lord defines it) or not.
