IS THE UNITED STATES ALREADY A QUASI FASCIST STATE?
A Guest Post From My Colleague, Bill Corbett
According to the definition of fascism attributed to Dr. Thomas Sowell, we very well might be. One of the principles of fascism as Dr. Sowell is alleged to have described it, is that under socialism, or communism, all business is owned by the government. Fascism, although a dictatorship, allows private ownership of businesses, but controls the operation of those businesses.
In other words, private ownership of business is allowed, but the government dictates how that business will be run. With all the existing government mandates in place, are we not close to this situation in the United States today?
The next step, as I see it, will be to nationalize all corporate business. I wonder how the media nincompoops will react when the government takes complete control of all broadcasting and news agencies in the country. What they write and broadcast, will be under the total dictates of government.
Their salaries will be under the total dictates of some government agency, and I feel very confident in saying there will be no more multi-million dollar annual salaries for anyone—including professional athletes and entertainers.(which in my opinion, for those salaries, this wouldn’t be all that bad—especially athletes).The Progressives are steadily moving the U.S. from a representative republic to a so-called socialist democracy
So, I say to American liberals, keep on listening to the Saul Alinsky lullaby and continue to let it lull you to sleep. When you awaken from your catatonic sleep, you may discover that you have just what you want. Majority rules, so this is fair, right?
Well, how about three foxes and two lambs taking a vote on what’s for dinner. I don’t think it takes much intelligence to figure out how that vote would go, but the majority rules so that makes it totally fair, right? The Founding Fathers understood that pure democracy is tyranny, that’s why they gave us a representative republic with checks and balances.
But as John Adams, our second president said, our Constitution was made for a religious and moral people. So even with the checks and balances built into our representative republic, it, too, will fail if the people continue to vote Saul Alinsky nihilist style corruption into power.
