Recently, on a blog I sometimes visit although I disagree with its content more often than not, the question was posed if the USA are becoming “fascist” or if they would have become fascist under a President Romney.
The first commenter clearly thought the USA are a fascist country mainly because of its “glorification of war”. Look what he wrote.
Here is my reply and his response.
I did not want to continue by pointing out the irony of somebody advocating “war that would lead to peace” and at the same time branding others as “fascist”. I also did not want to ask him what he wanted to do against the conceived “absence of a left wing party” which I assume he would want the government to launch, maybe with help from Hugo Chavez. The discussions probably would have turned into a cascade of endless ironies.
By the way, here is my full response to the original question posted on that blog.
