There's reason to support fascism if you want a unified people with a powerful collective identity, and an unwavering belief in their collective superiority over everyone else; and who are willing to take any measure to perpetuate the existence of the collective and prove said superiority. We could probably consider the Spartans to have built the ultimate fascist state, really, and they have quite a few admirers. I can't say I really see the appeal, myself.
Sparta conquored most of ancient greece, but couldn't hold their newly conquored terretory, because their doctrins and ways was too harsh, even though per se citizen had more freedom, such as women could freely walk about, do boxing and was kinda "equal" to a man. Was allowed to refuse sexual intercourse with a man, where as other states would consider women more or less slaves.
Often facist regimes exacts too radical philosophy for other countries/states to support, only already radical coutries/states will support such facist regime, ie Japan and Italy would support Hitler in WW2, hench "the Axis Powers".
Imo such facist states usually have a poor focus of administrative power, and thereby fails compared to most modern western administrative philosophies.
