Facism in 10 Easy Steps

Following on from my earlier post The End of America, Naomi Wolfe has an article in the Guardian summarising her ideas. She feels the US has already implemented 9 of these steps. Its a long article so I've just listed the steps here.

1. Invoke a terrifying internal and external enemy
2. Create a gulag
3. Develop a thug caste
4. Set up an internal surveillance system
5. Harass citizens' groups
6. Engage in arbitrary detention and release
7. Target key individuals
8. Control the press
9. Dissent equals treason
10. Suspend the rule of law
