Fascist America, in 10 easy steps
Here is an excellent analysis of fascism in general compared to the situation in the US today.
But: Unfortunately Naomi stopped short of suggesting that 911 was false flag terror, even if she explains the exploitation of false flags throughout history and the concept of creating terror myths. Maybe it was because of the editor of the Guardian, a left gate keeper instance so far.
Here's the most important issue:
Creating a terrifying threat - hydra-like, secretive, evil - is an old trick. It can, like Hitler's invocation of a communist threat to the nation's security, be based on actual events (one Wisconsin academic has faced calls for his dismissal because he noted, among other things, that the alleged communist arson, the Reichstag fire of February 1933, was swiftly followed in Nazi Germany by passage of the Enabling Act, which replaced constitutional law with an open-ended state of emergency). Or the terrifying threat can be based, like the National Socialist evocation of the "global conspiracy of world Jewry", on myth.
It is not that global Islamist terrorism is not a severe danger; of course it is. I am arguing rather that the language used to convey the nature of the threat is different in a country such as Spain - which has also suffered violent terrorist attacks - than it is in America. Spanish citizens know that they face a grave security threat; what we as American citizens believe is that we are potentially threatened with the end of civilisation as we know it. Of course, this makes us more willing to accept restrictions on our freedoms.
Naomi, how do we know that Islamist terrorism is a severe danger? Because it is? Who told you so? The same guys that exploit the terror myth at every possible occasion?
