The Road to Fascism

US on the Road to Fascism

Fascism – a simple definition: a governmental system led by a dictator having complete power, forcibly suppressing opposition and criticism, regimenting all industry, commerce, etc., and emphasizing an aggressive nationalism and often sexism and racism.

      Some Key Early Warning Signs of Fascism include: Supremacy of the Military, Extreme Nationalism, Obsession with National Security, Corporate Power Protected and Labor Suppressed, Rampant Cronyism & Corruption, Controlled Mass Media.

      Many people in the U.S. see the U.S. as spreading “freedom & democracy” around the world. The American narrative is that the U.S. is “the good guy” and the major problems in the world are caused by others out there – the Russians, Chinese, Iranians, etc. This is contrary to how much of the world views the U.S. To many around the world the U.S. is viewed as a global empire waging wars of aggression and overthrowing governments on behalf of corporate interests. While the U.S. accuses others of meddling in U.S. elections, its own citizens seem to completely ignore the long list of governments the U.S. has overthrown, overtly and covertly. See –https://williamblum.org/essays/read/overthrowing-other-peoples-governments-the-master-list

      Case in point. Consider the U.S. narrative for Hawaii. How many Americans, including residents in Hawaii, view the U.S. as an illegal occupying power of an independent nation state –The Hawaiian Kingdom? Isn’t it time we correct our vision. Learn the truth and begin to see the world from the eyes of others.
