Western Road to Fascism

  • 24 August 2011

Let’s see, according to this photograph there are 11 steps to fascism (as seen from an US point of view). Judging from the European point of view, I’d say some goals have already been achieved by some European governments.

  1. Invoke a threat.
  2. Establish secret prisons.
  3. Develop a paramilitary force.
  4. Surveil ordinary citizens.
  5. Infiltrate citizen’s groups.
  6. Arbitrarily detain citizens.
  7. Target key individuals.
  8. Restrict the press.
  9. Cast dissent as treason.
  10. Subvert the rule of law.
  11. Disarm the citizen.

So, what’s next?
