Debate Round No. 1

Pro

Most everyone knows the word Fascism, and those who aligned with it. From the Nazis to the Fascist state of Mussolini's Italy, Fascism's rise to popularity in the early 20th century spelled doom for millions, there's no question about that.

Communism on the other hand is the opposite extreme of Fascism. The government completely controlled industry, distributed and redistributed wealth to maintain equality of outcome, and made private property non-existent.

What sets communism as the greater of 2 extremist evils? The primary facts that show this difference can be split into 3 main groups:

1. The cumulative death toll of each, and how each killed their victims

2. Economic functionality and the standard of living for those not being persecuted but who live under each system

3. Cultural influence of each and the threat of its ideas spreading

As per the structure of this debate, I will go into more detail on these 3 primary factors that point to the conclusion of Communism being and having been more severe a threat to society than Fascism.
