Only in the sense that the group can and should be used as a cudgel as necessary.

The basic tenets of Fascism are the need for authoritarian dictatorship, the formation of highly regimented and hierarchical societies and economies with the goal of internal self-sufficiency through protectionism and interventionsim, and the expansion of state into Empire.

It's basically the idea that your culture and state and economy are all deeply intertwined, used to foster each other, and all under the total authoritarian control of a single dictator in whom all power is invested.
