Sweden and Nazi Germany

The main topics are going to be about Sweden and Nazi Germany. While the other  topic is about fascism. The first question is : The standard claim about  Sweden is that it shows  that society  can prosper without such a free market anf extensive government   intervention, what would be a good response  to this claim?  My response is: That  the claim is half-way right: about a society can prosper without an extensive government intervention but,  not the part where it mentions the a society  can  prosper without a free market . My reason being is that a free market  helps a society  to prosper and grow.  In addition to that , Sweden grew wealthy due  to an free market in the  nineteen-th century and early twenty-th century  and also  due to avoiding wars . By avoiding wars, they  saved lots of money to help society and expanded within as a whole, while not by going to war for land. Furhermore, there was more freedom and less taxes (inheritance,gift,wealth taxes abolished).   The second question is: What were the primary values of fascism?  The primary values if fascism was that it values a charismatic leader: having   great charm or appeal as a leader. It also values  political centralization,individual rights  are subordinate to the  good of the nation. As we know, centralization gives power only to those in the government group yet, a political one is the same since it is also  the government . Furthermore,we also know  that individual rights should be above  the good of the   nation. which  brings us to a conclusion; fascism is bad for  a nation and  people. And finally the third question: (part one of the question) what is life like for the businessman in Nazi Germany ? The socialist claim that fascism is just a late stage of capital and the freemarket? (part two of question). Life for  the businessman in Nazi Germany  was very difficult  because they had to  tons and tons of paperwork. In adddition, they also needed special lawyers  to help  them plus  lots of taxes, and fees on their backs. They have to know who to talk to and who not to talk to. (part two of third question) The socialist claim about fascism being the  late stage of capital and free market , seems   most unlikely  in my opinion. My reason being  is because fascism values things that  capital and the free market don’t.   Such as, it values political centralization when they value decentralization. The only thing that  they  might have in common  is they value a charismatic leader: to help them for selling a product.
