“Keep me away from the wisdom which does not cry, the philosophy which does not laugh and the greatness which does not bow before children.” –Khalil Gibran
We live in a culture that’s suffocating under the stifling cross-stitched blanket of state and corporate power, and there is a single word sewn onto that two-sided blanket: Fascism. As it stands, the U.S. fits every single one of the fourteen defining characteristics of fascism, according to Dr. Lawrence Britt. And a recent study at Princeton has revealed that the U.S. is no longer an actual democracy. It is a particularly greedy and underhanded form of oligarchy known as plutocracy. So what are we to do about it? In the past I’ve written about how to unfuck the world, how we’re victims of the state, and how to combat psychopathic tendencies with empathic tendencies, but for now, how about I go into a fascist-blanket-shredding diatribe about how to guard against the rise of American Fascism.
