10 Steps to Fascism

Great article detailing the 10 steps that all governments perform in order to curb freedoms and remove the democratic process from their countries. Interestingly, the United States seems to have taken all 10 to heart.

Full article

Step 1: Invoke a terrifying internal and external enemy
Step 2: Create a gulag
Step 3: Develop a thug caste
Step 4: Set up an internal surveillance system
Step 5: Harass citizens' groups
Step 6: Engage in arbitrary detention and release
Step 7: Target key individuals
Step 8: Control the press
Step 9: Dissent equals treason
Step 10: Suspend the rule of law

So much for the land of the free.
