A whole new world

supposedly it's a dialogue about political formation with regards to rights and obligations. If you're serious about it, we should be able to establish the terms, otherwise it's just another waste of time along the lines "it wasn't a real X".
I can give a short summary in a couple of sentences once you do the same. In this case providing definition for term in question is almost the whole answer.
After that I'll give you a short summary of some of JFK's policies in 1960s and a short speech. We'll see how many boxes it checks.
Title of the book was mentioned. Either you missed it, or didn't read that far.
Here's article in Independent, it mentions publisher of diary too:
Also provides an interesting quote:
"A fortnight earlier, Kennedy, who was touring with his friend Lem Billings, wrote in his diary: “I have come to the conclusion that fascism is right for Germany and Italy. What are the evils of fascism compared to communism?” Billings later recalled that Kennedy was “completely consumed by his interest for the Hitler movement” during their trip."
Does admiration for fascism make one an admirer of fascism?
Hitler's economic and social policies were well know by 1937, Germany was a poster for rejection of capitalism and socialism for a reason. If you consider that Final Solution was all "that Nazis were really about", it would mean that in 1930s they were not really Nazis, and Mussolini was not a real fascist.
