    A dictatorship is authoritarian control by a central authority, which can either be a single person or party.

    Fascism is when big business and big government form a symbiotic type relationship where big business drives government policy for the benefit of both the government and big business, often using its authority to stifle competition and any threat to the power of the ruling elite.

    Fascism is usually governed by a dictatorship.

    But if you want to go by the flawed, non-political terminology in the dictionary... they are the same.

    The ignorant clowns are the ones who are expecting an answer that will paint some kind of a false connection between Obama (or liberalism in general), fascism and dictatorship.

    A dictatorship is when the state runs with whatever they want and no one says or can do any thing about it.

    Fascism is when the people are on board with it by supporting and perpetuating it in the name of nationalism and what not.

    Not much... but a key difference is that fascism normally incorporates xenophobia
