Fascist America, in 10 easy steps

My history teacher pointed those out in 1997 and he wasn't thinking of the USA back then. I thought: come on, it can't be that easy! However, seeing what happens in the USA, I humbly have to retract that opinion.

  1. Invoke a terrifying internal and external enemy: 9/11 Terrorists, enemy combatants and unspoken Islam
  2. Create a gulag: Two words... Guantanamo Bay
  3. Develop a thug caste: Not yet, I think so at least.
  4. Set up an internal surveillance system: See article
  5. Harass citizens' groups: Again, see article and peaceful oriented groups have already been infiltrated. Okay, my source is Roger Michael Moore so a grain of salt the size of Canada is needed.
  6. Engage in arbitrary detention and release: This goes along with Guantanamo. However, non-fly lists are in those lines....
  7. Target key individuals: Is most certainly happening....
  8. Control the press: Conglomerates do this... Don't even bother. Real historic dictatorships couldn't do this as well as capitalistic US.
  9. Dissent equals treason: If you're not with us, you're against us.... I have to say no more.
  10. Suspend the rule of law: Habeas corpus is gone, more laws have followed and more will follow.
