    Hi, Skull!

    First, a quick check of lifesitenews showed a history of being banned from this or that platform. I did not, and will not, click on the provided link.

    That said, I suggest that the word Fascism is too specific, and may not apply to what is occurring in the United States of America. I propose authoritarianism as a substitute.

    An authoritarian take-over of a democratic government* requires either active support of a significant percent of the population or, alternately, general indifference. There appears to be a significant percent of my fellow Americans who are not just indifferent but actively willing to support an authoritarian. We can see this process also going on in Hungary, Poland and some other democracies at this time.

    Regards, stay safe 'n well.

    Note. I try to reply to all who quote one of my posts. If you quote me and I do not respond, it may be that I no longer read your posts.

    * Yes, Gotcha! Gang. I know the US is a republic form of government.

    One, ad hom is fallacious.

    Two, how about totalitarianism?
    Experience should teach us to be most on our guard to protect liberty when the government's purposes are beneficent. Men born to freedom are naturally alert to repel invasion of their liberty by evil-minded rulers. The greatest dangers to liberty lurk in insidious encroachment by men of zeal, well-meaning but without understanding.

    Hi, Yakuda!

    My opinion is of no consequence. What matters is how your opinion stands when checked against reliable sources. You can perform that test by yourself.
