Fascism's single greatest achievement is convincing the world it doesn't actually exist. Hell, that's basically the entire game plan once fascism is installed - deny the people the chance to ever publicly acknowledge their situation, quashing dissent and revolution before they can even begin.

Who CARES if it's not a textbook Mussolini-style fascist state yet?

Let's run down that checklist

-Enslaved (serfdom) to your liege
-Likely to die/sustain long term damage from any wound sustained, no matter how minor
-Underequipped (only the liege`s knights get any armor at all
Gee, that sure sounds like the life I'd want to play in MY fantasy! Your arguments, while true, are completly irrelevant because nobody plays a fantasy game for realism. This is not a **** re-enactement of Ye Olde Dragone Slayinge.

Yes, if all it takes to mess up the entire global climate for over a year is a single sufficient volcano eruption, what are the odds that 6,000,000,000+ humans working together to belch toxic fumes into the air every single day could have any impact whatsoever. Ridiculous.

You are either a troll or hilariously obtuse.
