This is a load of crap ..... simple definitions.
Capitalism : Private property is respected, free market economy
Communism : No private property (government owns the means of production), command economy.
Fascism: Private property with ultimate control residing in the government (rules and regulations) (illusion of ownership). Market is free, but limited by government regulations .
America boiled down is moving towards fascism. 'Communist' China is actually moving towards fascism as well.
