Fascism is the first thing in the relationship between a man and a woman

I have already thought about it before, where does fascism begin. It does not begin with the first bombs that are thrown, it does not begin with the terror one can write about, in every newspaper. It begins in the relationships between people. Fascism is the first thing in the relationship between a man and a woman.
