What America has become...
A Government by The Fascists for The Fascists
A fascist state exists where a nation begins to allow the control of its government by corporatism, single party political interests, and law enforcement that reaches beyond the normal necessity of such. There are many other defining characteristics of a fascist condition, but in the United States of America these basic ingredients have come to define a developing system that is leading the American people into a cage of control.
Most recently in this country, fascism has taken the form of overzealous faux-patriotism, and its accompanying legislation, in order to garner control of our nationalistic interests, domestic and abroad. It has condemned the speakers, the activists, the natural food producers, the non-Christians, immigrants and the poor. In fact, it has attacked everything that is America.
9/11 started the landslide toward our national village. Like an echo in the mountains unleashing an otherwise peaceful pack, this shot heard round the world shook the very base of our “Democracy” to the point where people without even the slightest idea of what Al-Qaeda was, started toting signs and waving flags when called upon by the Bush Regime to denounce and condemn the alleged actions of a terrorist organization from the remote country of Iraq.
It didn’t matter that the attack was a direct result of this Nation’s previous actions in a land we had no right to be in, or that the attack had not been proved to be carried out by these profiled “terrorists;" all that mattered was the American Government needed justification to invade and control an oil rich land. When the towers fell, the race was on for total governmental control over “We The People” and, by extension, the Middle East.
In reaction to this “attack” by those in charge, came the enacting of one of the most destructive pieces of Executive and Legislative acts in the history of this Country: The Patriot Act. This Wag the Dog “Patriotism” initiative set into play a series of national protectionist acts the like of which hadn’t been seen since the McCarthy Era. Not only did this legislation throw up a cloak of denial to the reasons behind 9/11 and use it as a reason to propel us into an immoral war, it enabled the government to intrude into our lives and deny the Constitutional Rights of We, the American people.
