NASA has always been very involved with corporate wealth as were its predecessors in the United States and fascist Germany. Fascism is defined as the control of government by the wealthy. When government is stronger than the wealthy, then the weak at least have a chance at justice, opportunity, and fairness.

Most modern conservative western schools of economic thought such as libertarianism (i.e. as advocated by the CATO institute or the Heritage Foundation) or the Austrian school of economics all have fascist roots and are propaganda for the wealthy which includes Austrian school members like Frederic von Hayek and Milton Friedman (who was so popular with the Reagan/Bush team).

Not everything they say is a lie, but the backbone of their philosophy is fascist. You can tell a lot by who their enemies are. There has been a lot of money spent on this propaganda since world war ii which has unfortunately successfully equated capitalism with liberty in many peoples' minds. The opposite is the truth. Liberty has nothing to do capitalism, but fascism is the offspring of capitalism.

The same goes for most science that has the same funding as conservative economics theories. It is rubbish intended for the masses. NASA founder Werner von Braun was himself a Nazi SS officer who worked with and for SS leader Heinrich Himmler, and his science is just as fascist and just as false in america as it was in Nazi Germany.

No, it's not. The word you are looking for is ploutocracy.

Not completely wrong, but grossly exaggerated. And what does NASA have to do with all that?

Science is not always easy to understand, to the uneducated. It is not and cannot ever be "intended for the masses", because "the masses" have generally proved themselves to be pretty damn dumb. Oh, don't worry, I don't mean you. You are in a class of your own.

These idiots' explanations as to what Nazism, fascism, neoliberalism and neoconservatism mean often end up sounding very similar to each other.
