More Scary Stuff

Another essay about America’s fascist leanings. It’s from Adbusters so hey lets hope it’s being hysterical again but actaully it’s rather more level headed. I’m not sure whether that’s a good thing or a bad thing…

While the relentless advance of the conservative movement’s agenda is scary, the American right is not genuinely fascist – at least, not yet.

Also, ever heard of The Business Plot of 1933? I hadn’t till yesterday.

The Business Plot, The Plot Against FDR, or The White House Putsch, was an uncovered conspiracy plot involving several wealthy businessmen to overthrow President Franklin D. Roosevelt in 1933.

The closest America ever got to fascism apparently.
