Syndicalism; Labor, Corporations, mobs
The Spanish Falange under both Jose Antonio Primo De Rivera and later Franco was an explicitly fascist, totalitarian movement when out of power. Franco was authoritarian in power. I'm examining their plank because it is as illustrative of fascism as studying the planks of Nazis, Portuguese Fascists or Italian Fascists.
Most early Fascist parties, especially in the "Mediterranean" fascist countries (Spain, Portugal, Italy & Vichy France), touted syndicalism as a "third way" that would be more just than pure socialism or capitalism. Syndicates are essentially organizations of people combined to promote some common interest.
