Image from: MROnline: Sweezy on the rise of fascism
In recent times, fascist movements have emerged around the world. They have mobilized thousands of people around racist, reactionary ideas, and in some cases have directly won political power. ... Besides Brazil, fascist politics have taken hold in the United States, Britain, Hungary, Poland, and other parts of Europe.
Believe it or not, the government - as described at election time - is not at home.
Don't call us; we'll call you ... maybe.
Wouldn't it be fun to turn the tables? Video: Trump calls George Costanza but "Believe it or Not George Isn't at Home"
Thought I'd start right off with a chuckle because from here on in there's nothing but godoffal, from erroneous doom and gloom predictions to dangerous societal trends that appear all too real.

We may well have worse things to worry about than over-population (which, if the surface were lightly scratched might well reveal racism) and the trumpeted threat of "climate change" that's already on schedule to lighten everyone's pockets.
Here's something really sad ...
Reason.com: "Attack on Jewish-Owned Restaurant Is Hate Crime Hoax, Cops Say
If the Berents are indeed guilty, one has to wonder why they didn't consider the possibility they would end up trivializing hate crimes. I'd have to think that maybe it's time the holocaust story was moved on from and attempts were made to live in the present. What's happening to people of a number of religious persuasions and races does not bode well. There have been far-right uprisings in Canada in the past, and the future doesn't look so good either.
TheLink: This Isn’t the First Rise of the Far-Right in Canada
Take a look at what's happening in Quebec at this very moment at the hands of a strongly right-leaning government that feels it has a right to dictate rather than serve:
TheLink: Protests Against Bill 21 Continue as Legault Tells Students to Find Other Jobs
As much as I personally would prefer that people ceased wearing their religion as fashion statements, I am very much in favour of their absolute right to do so -- but it's obvious that xenophobia has taken hold in Quebec (and elsewhere). The Quebec legislation is a strong indication that the "Christian Right" has made serious inroads into Quebec society, and it does not bode well for the survival of what we like to call "democracy" in "the true north strong and 'free'".
If this is the way things are going, when I die I hope there's no such thing as reincarnation, because I don't want to be around for when this trend is entrenched. It seems it's the countries that cry freedom the loudest that are leading the way to societal erosion, affecting youth and paving the way toward a cold, heartless future.
Here's a nice little horror essay from Ireland that nevertheless makes a strong point about the political culture developing in the so-called democracies:
"TheArticle": To keep our children away from death cults and knife crime, we must instill in them a culture of belonging
Believe it or not, the homeland we sing about in our anthems isn't answering the phone. It's still blithely misreading the public, attempting to tell them only what it's assumed they want to hear.
Did you know the Security and Prosperity Partnership of North America (SPP) that was supposed to be dead has reportedly risen from its very shallow grave? Of course not; this is just one of the things our government has involved us in when it hoped we weren't paying attention.
