So, what is the difference between fascism and communism? If you have taught (or are teaching) world history, this can be a tough one.
This product breaks down the main similarities and differences between fascism and communism in an animated powerpoint chart. It would be cumbersome to compare every form of these ideologies, so I chose the two most potent examples: fascism under Hitler in Nazi Germany, and communism under Stalin in the USSR (Soviet Union).
The two systems are broken down by six categories: 1) philosophy, 2) politics, 3) economics, 4) religion, 5) role of individual, 6) goals for the world
The point is to efficiently and succinctly display the similarities and differences, and why to the two systems were incompatible with one another despite some commonalities.
