http://www.rense.com/general37/char.htmFascism isn't the same thing as loyalty to party lines or idealogies. Fascism is more based upon a society that is;
and typically justifies actions through claims of being victimized (for example, the germans built up a millitary on the basis that they'd been victimized by the french, they invaded the Sudetenland to liberate the victimized german minority, they had to consolidate political power because they were being victimized by the communists, and such).
The source pretty much confirms what you were getting at; that's why I posted it. Many govts have fascist tendencies, but this doesn't make them truly fascist. In our govt,'s case, the close ties to corporatism, corruption/crontism, corporate control of the media, and the disdain for labor rights all show fascist tendencies, but it's not a pure fascism as was the case in Germany or Italy.Psh, well if you're going to cheat and not go off the top of your head
More or less what I was alluding to anyway. That's where I see some fascist tendencies, not "Bush wants to take over the world so he's like, a nazi and a fascist" which isn't really an accurate representation of fascism anyway
It is one thing to take precautions, but to revoke the very freedoms your soldiers are dying to protect... is that not the definition of irony?Choice: Either they (terrorists) are free to speak, and kill, and you are free to die, or we take precautions and temper free speach some, in order for us to live.
If you support the terrorists, then taking precautions is bad I guess.
