Fascism more than the union of corporate and state power

Because I'm a stigler for definitions. State and corporate power has been fused in quite a few dictatorships that the U.S. has sponsored in places like Central America that haven't really been fascist states per se. So there must be something else that makes the difference. If opposing and trying to stop fascism was as easy as just stopping the fusion of state and corporate power the world would be a much easier place to render justice in. Same thing with the idea that fascism only happened because of a long German tradition of anti-semitism, which ignoes, um, Mussolini, Franco, Salazar in Portugal, Vargas in Brazil...
