More politics.

This set of essays is managing to sum up much of my concerns and fears about the situation in the U.S. at the moment. On one hand, I doubt seriously that this year's election is anything but rigged (but I hope that it's not rigged so far yet that it's impossible to get the current adminstration out). On the other hand, I suspect that even were Kerry everything I wanted him to be, he would not be able to stop this, just delay it. This sort of thing goes way beyond who is president at the moment, or even who is nominally in power.

The Rise of Pseudo-Fascism
Part 1: The Morphing of the Conservative Movement
Part 2: The Architecture of Fascism
Part 3: The Pseudo-Fascist Campaign


There are three more parts to come.

This sort of thing, and seeing it all around me, is why rereading The Handmaid's Tale was so disturbing.
