Fascism then. Fascism now?

CLICK TO READ: Fascism then. Fascism now? By Paul Bigioni - Toronto Star

Fascism? Here? No way!

Trouble is, it's human nature to think, "Can't happen here." "Not to us." "You're crazy, this is America."

But that's exactly how it does happen. Because you think it can't.

"When people think of fascism, they imagine Rows of goose-stepping storm troopers and puffy-chested dictators. What they don't see is the economic and political process that leads to the nightmare.

Before the rise of fascism, Germany and Italy were, on paper, liberal democracies. Fascism did not swoop down on these nations as if from another planet. To the contrary, fascist dictatorship was the result of political and economic changes these nations underwent while they were still democratic. In both these countries, economic power became so utterly concentrated that the bulk of all economic activity fell under the control of a handful of men."


The Grave Threat Is the Bush Administration by Paul Craig Roberts - Lew "Americans need to wake up. The only danger to Americans in Iraq is the one Bush created by invading the country. The grave threat that Americans face is the Bush administration’s police state mentality."
