All of these things are different...just so you know

Fascism:
  1. Often capitalized : a political philosophy, movement, or regime (as that of the Fascisti) that exalts nation and often race above the individual and that stands for a centralized autocratic government headed by a dictatorial leader, severe economic and social regimentation, and forcible suppression of opposition
  2. A tendency toward or actual exercise of strong autocratic or dictatorial control

Socialism:
  1. An economic system in which the means of production are commonly owned and controlled cooperatively; or a political philosophy advocating such a system. As a form of social organization, socialism is based on co-operative social relations and self-management; relatively equal power-relations and the reduction or elimination of hierarchy in the management of economic and political affairs

Communism:

  1. a theory advocating elimination of private property
  2. a system in which goods are owned in common and are available to all as needed
