10 Ingredient Totalitarianism Recipe

Fascist America, medical in 10 easy steps, from 2007, by liberal author Naomi Wolf lists the 10 ways the Bush administration was creating a Totalarian regime. Frankly, I don’t think there’s much a difference between the Bush administration and the Obama administration on these points. Either way, it seems the government is moving in that direction.

  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
