Naomi Wolf(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Naomi_Wolf, http://naomiwolf.org) presents you the main signs of how democracy can get sick.
”In The End of America: Letter of Warning to a Young Patriot, Wolf takes a historical look at the rise of fascism, outlining 10 steps necessary for a fascist group (or government) to destroy the democratic character of a nation-state and subvert the social/political liberty previously exercised by its citizens:
- Invoke a terrifying internal and external enemy
- Create secret prisons where torture takes place
- Develop a thug caste or paramilitary force not answerable to citizens
- Set up an internal surveillance system
- Harass citizens’ groups
- Engage in arbitrary detention and release
- Target key individuals
- Control the press
- Treat all political dissidents as traitors
- Suspend the rule of law” (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Naomi_Wolf)
It can happen anytime and anywhere.
Citizens are responsible to not fall into the Sleep of Reasons That Can Produce Monsters.
Our planet is not only ours it is also the planet of the next generations. Leave behind you a better place.
