[Fascism is derived from the Latin fasces.]
 Do you know what a Fasci is? A Fasci is the symbol from which we get the word, fascism. It was a symbol used widely in the Roman Empire and it consists of rods bound together around an axe. This axe is the origin of the term Axis Powers for the fascist countries in the Second World War. The symbolism is of people and countries bound together under a common centralised dictatorship, the axe. Not only was this used by Ancient Rome back in the day as one of its Symbols of "Supreme Authority", but also by the Original "Axis Powers" of Europe back in the first half of the 20th Century prior too and during WWII. Numerous governments and other authorities have used the image of the fasces as a symbol of power since the end of the Roman Empire. It has also been used to hearken back to the Roman republic, particularly by those who see themselves as modern-day successors to the old republic. Whenever you see a Fasci with a Laurel Wreath wrapped around it, it signifies that the Government using it, was Freely given absolute reign by the "People"!, and that the people recognize and submit to its Supreme Authority over everyone and everything
