For years in the United States, the term fascist has been used by some to describe political leaders who are thought to be too conservative. I’m a teacher of World War II history who has written about fascism. I’ve found that historians have a consensus definition of the term, broadly speaking. Given the term’s current (and sometimes incorrect) use, I think it’s important to distinguish what fascism is and what it is not.
