The Next Big Thing

Great post at Orcinus (as always) about exactly where the fascism lies in America today... The sequence of comments to that post came to a chilling point:

Riesz Fischer: I think our society would be in real danger of going over the edge of fascism if we have a combination of another spectacular terrorist attack and a true fascist leader in a position to take advantage of it.

JRoth: Even if we accept that Bush & his current cadre are not prepared to take that big leap into fascism, doesn't that still leave the pump primed for someone in '08 to use the machine that the current leadership has built?

Darryl Pearce: The Romans had a system by which a dictator was appointed for a set amount of time.
