It’s Fascism, Damn it!
It is very intriguing how President Obama is misconstrued by the right wing of America as somehow being Socialist or even Communist. Such accusations couldn’t be further from the truth. If anything, Obama and federal and local governments have been operating as Fascist entities. From corporate bribery to the militarization of police forces, acts that establish such an accusation as fascism is grounded in reality.
Benito Mussolini said, “Fascism should more appropriately be called Corporatism because it is a merger of state and corporate power.” Mussolini’s statement is reminiscent of how our country operates now. When corporations have ultimate power, it is impossible and against the very definition of Communism. Under Communism, corporations are seized by the government, not the other way around.
The militarization of police aspect seems to be more of a show of force, to frighten and obtain compliance from us the subjects, to implement an agenda without resistance. I’m not going to pretend to know what that agenda is, nor am I going to say that the goal of this administration and the controllers behind it is indeed Fascism, but their actions seem to indicate otherwise.
To further the evidence, you may have noticed in recent years since 9/11 the extreme veneration of militarism and some ultranationalistic movements against immigrants and foreigners. All are symptoms of an authoritarian Imperialistic society. My observations barely scratch the surface. If one looks at history, one sees that America has never matched our idealistic, freedom-loving archetype we so often apply to the country.
American puritanical forces have always suppressed the rights of others and have disallowed constitutionality to be upheld. I implore every American to take a look at history, take a look at Fascism, then compare with modern day America. Then, tell me if you don’t see any parallels. Sometimes, taking a good sober look at yourself in the mirror is one of the hardest things to do, and we as a country must.
