Fascism was a reaction against the threat of democracy, long frowned upon by elites since Plato. During the period in which eugenics was respectable enough to still be called a science, most elites on the "left" and "right" of politics assumed that being poor was equivalent to being genetically deficient. While there were more and less extreme versions of this viewpoint, my characterisation doesn't distort the historical truth in the least.
The answer, according to the fascist philosophers, or at least the political philosophies that the fascists took up, was to invest power in specific groups of people. These included religions, corporations, youth clubs, specific groups of academics, political parties, unions in some cases (including Germany and Italy), and so on.
The corporatist version of fascism really took hold by the end of the 19th century. At this time it was clear to the elites that big business was the answer to all problems. Business, and its quasi-academic representatives, addressed parliaments and congresses about the way to run a country: according to business principles. It has been thus ever since except for a few years when everyone got a shock about the mass murders in WWII. Hitler, Stalin, Mussolini, Hoover, and most, if not all, the industrialising countries of the early 20th century used the same techniques to run their countries. They ran them like great big factories.
Fascism comes from the Italian word, fasci, or bundle. Its political expression is corporatism: business tells government how to run society, which it views solely in economic terms. Listen to the Freudian slips lately: how many people mean to say country and say "company" instead? Have you done it? I heard a leading bureacrat do it on the radio today ...
Anyway, the point is that fascism is on the rise again. Fascism won WWII. But it was just a different form of fascism than the most overt kind. Now it's gone global. This time there's no outside. The multinats only see countries with a natural crop of people. Government, which is supposely the political expression of people, has no right to own anything: not prisons, not infrastructure, not banks, not utilities. Thus people have no right to own anything together.
