Can "Fascism" be understood as a pejorative term in this case? I've come across a Spanish title that could be translated to English as "Self-defence and other fascisms" (the title obviously has a sarcastic meaning). However, I would like someone to confirm if in this title the term "fascism" can be understood as an "insult" or a pejorative term, as in Spanish it is a usual insult used by socialists. If not, is there any similar term that could be used in this case? By the way, fascisms (in plural) should be written in capital letters? Thanks!

Yes, calling someone other than Hitler, Mussolini, or Franco a fascist is almost always intended as an insult.
