The principle of good faith is often viewed by legal scholars with suspicion, claiming that it would open the door to social control, in particular that of a Fascist nature, owing to the association made between the expanded good faith notion and the corporative political philosophy. Denying that good faith notions might automatically lead to corporativism (let alone Fascism), the article discusses the legal and ideological basis for good faith in the corporative state and in Fascism in general.
