Yes, code formatting involves fascism.

- Someone, a lead architect should decide upon rules.
- Then a tool must be used to force these rules. It shouldn't be the tool's rules, but the tool should support the rules defined by the lead developer.
- You should NOT run it on all existing files.
- You should work the formatter on every file you commit, at least on the lines you changed. This is the only way to prevent merge conflicts caused by formatting.
