fascism is a matter of degree
that level depends on what the fascist inclined leader finds he can get away with. And the Don is so inclined. — -as are many of those around him.
with a ‘’democracy’’ like the usa — this has to be small steps at first, because the unthinking masses have to be convinced that all the leader does is to “make America great again” — -a myth that never was.
America’s ‘’greatness’’ derived from its abundance of natural resources, and the ability to use them. Once those resources have been used up, the USA will disintegrate into petty fiefdoms, because there will be nothing to hold it together as a nation.
The fascist dictator must deny this, and use ever more brutal methods to effect that denial — -before the final collapse. So the fascism regime will tighten its grip, and the idiot masses will welcome their own strangulation, not seeing it for what it is.
Hitler was cheered on when he brought early victories — -nobody saw it as a Ponzi scheme. Yet his war was an out thrust the grab resources — -just as Japan’s was.
The middle east wars are the same thing — the desperate grab for oil. Our dear leaders know full well what will happen when the oil has gone
