Vote in the comments. I originally phrased it as "feudalism in decay", but this would exclude Argentina.

Can you elaborate a bit? I'm not sure why fascism would be "agricultural landlordism in decay". Did you mean to link to a blog post that explains that a bit more or something like that?

I disagree, doesn't fit my mental picture of archetypal fascists.

@BionicD0LPH1N There's no blogpost. But think about it. "I'm not sure why fascism would be "agricultural landlordism in decay"." Consider historical context -Japan, Italy, Prussia, Argentina, etc. were all famous for agricultural landlordism. But that world was dying, and landed elites and their supporters were thinking of the next thing. South Korea is a particularly drastic example -it had a huge amount of agricultural landlordism under Japanese rule, which was then destroyed totally after the Korean war. What came next is completely unsurprising from the standpoint of this dictum.

Also, consider present-day India.

@EnopoletusHarding That sounds like you're saying fascism is caused by agricultural landlordism in decay, which is different from being it.
