Well - people forget that in fascism corporatocracy comes first. Militarism and a cult of physical violence are optional. (Although very popular.)

Nazism was very much a corporate creation, funded by financial and industrial interests in Germany and the US. Without that funding, Hitler would have remained an eccentric extremist.

Of course, some industrialists - Thyssen particularly - discovered trying to buy a creature like Hitler was an expensive mistake.

Other backers did quite well out of WWII.
