That in other countries there have always been parties which were openly anti-freedom. For the rest of the world this is not a new thing. Fascism didn't start the anti-freedom trend, it was already there before. It just gave it more energy.
People always said that the reason the United States did not have a real left or a real social safety net is that we never had a real rightwing, in the full sense of the word, group to fight against in our political system. We never had a monarch, at least post revolution, we never had a monarchist party, we never had a party which was for the traditional idea of aristocracy, we never had a theocratic party. We didn't have the opposite of freedom to tell us what real freedom was. We never had a party advocating openly social injustice as good to show us what social justice really was. We do now.
