Face it people: fascism is here

Here's some more Naomi Wolf. It's from her article "Fascist America, in 10 easy steps":

The ten steps

1. Invoke a terrifying internal and external enemy.
2. Create
secret prisons where torture takes place.
3. Develop a thug
caste or paramilitary force not answerable to citizens.
4. Set up an internal surveillance system.
5. Harass
citizens' groups.
6. Engage in
arbitrary detention and release.
7. Target key individuals.
Control the press.
9. Declare all
dissent to be treason.
10. Suspend the
rule of law.

Click through to the article for details about how each step is being manifested in the U.S.

You might also want to consider reading her new book The End of America: A Letter of Warning to a Young Patriot.

You know, many people - not just Naomi Wolf - are sounding the alarm. I don't understand why they aren't really being heard. How is it that Bush and Cheney can have such low approval numbers and still be supported the way they are? It just doesn't make sense.
